The Vexter Double Rock is a switchable dual pedal, either channel can be a Distortron circuit or a Super Hard On circuit. This allows you to achieve a variety gain staging options. All of which have real world applications in studio and on stage.
The Vexter ZVEX Vexter Double Rock pedal was originally designed for J.Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. He requested two Box of Rock pedals in one large box with two stomp switches. He uses that regularly on stage now, but we couldn't leave well enough alone. After adding some extra features and compacting the circuit into a standard ZVEX enclosure we released it to the world.

VOLUME: Adjust for output volume level.
DIS / BOOST Switch: Changes the circuit from a Distortron to Super Hard-On boost.
SUBS Switch: “2-1-3” lets you choose the full “Box of Rock” sub amount (3) or two different lower levels of subs depending on your amp’s needs. Only works in Distortron mode.
The Vexter Double Rock has exceptionally low current draw (approximately 2mA) or may be powered with 9 volt battery or common 9 volt negative tip power supply.
