Fancy channeling Billy Gibbons’ tones from ZZ Top’s 70s classic Tres Hombres? Well, thanks to J. Rockett, now you can. The El Hombre isn’t a signature pedal, but it is based on getting you in reach of Billy’s ballpark. J. Rockett is calling it a Texas Heat overdrive, and as such the El Hombre promises to take you from “mild to wild” with its amp-like harmonics and dynamic response. The three-control layout features gain and volume, with the tone renamed as ‘bite’. When fully open, J. Rockett says it’ll give you aggressive drive, but with the bite dialled back it’s a smoother, Dumble style sound.
The El Hombre is available now, priced at £199.
