  • What Does The Zvex Box of Rock Sound like on A Clean Amp (Fender Twin Style)????

    Every demo I hear, sounds awesome, but it's always on a dirty amp.... I'm worried it won't sound any good on my twin.

    I tried it in the studio with my Ampeg VT-22 which was set to totally clean. I didn't like it, it was noisy and a bit flat feeling to me. I much preferred my RAT. But each to their own. Can you not try one out at a shop?

      they might have one.... it's hard to find stuff around here.... I also have a vt-22, which i love to death, but i think fender twins sound a bit sweeter/smoother. But when I need it loud and hard, i always go to the ampeg.

        I use it live with a twin all the time. Sounds great. Stacks really well with other dirt pedals also. Here's a clip I did a couple years ago, strat into clean twin w/ box of rock. I also showed the boost a little and played an OCD at the end of the clip just to compare. Maybe it will help you.

            I have a box of rock and I have a twin. They go along pretty nicely.
            Can nail an AC/DC sound.

                I always thought it sounded best when it was used with a lower-wattage amp that it was pushing. JMO though.

                  Thanks man that helps a lot, it sounds really good... When you say it stacks well with other pedals, are you referring to noise level and feedback etc?


                  Yes, not a lot of noise and hiss when you run another drive into it. Also it reacts more amp-like in that it just gets heavier and more saturated sounding instead of getting sputtery and farty like say a tubescreamer.

                    just came back from the music store, lone behold there was one sitting there and there was also a diamond j-drive (which I am using with it) tried them both together in a twin.... they sound amazing together... never knew my twin could sound like a marshall!

                    gotta give it to zvex, this is my first pedal of theres but it's a winner for sure.... Even tho I always hated the graphics and the name.... I now love the graphics and name cus i know how it sounds.

                        Good to know. Glad you're a convert. I'm thinking of changing the graphics this year. But not the name. 8^)

                          I wouldn't worry too much about it, the thing sells itself by it's tone, it's really punchy which I love... I'm not too concerned with graphics.

                          you could put a giant penis on the woolly mammoth for all i care, I really really want one..... do you guys do consignment?
