Although the Philosopher’s Rock has fewer controls than its more knobby siblings, it actually sports a 4 times wider range of compression tones on tap. This allows the Pigtronix Philosopher’s Rock to be used as a more subtle, clean compressor as well as a super squashy sustain machine when maxed out. The Philosopher’s Rock can be used to tame peaks in your signal as well as to create natural acoustic feedback. Super low noise performance allows the Philosopher’s Rock pedal to be effective in front of a dirty amp or combined with high gain distortion and fuzz pedals.
The Treble and Blend functions from the original Philosopher’s Tone have been preset to the sweet spot for hassle free operation on stage or in the studio. The Pigtronix Philosopher’s Rock features true bypass switching and runs fine on standard 9-volt (negative tip) power but ships with an 18-volt adapter for superior headroom, clarity and overall output.
