It was a tall order. Make a box that could replace a vintage boost / eq unit that had been in Doug's rack for most of his career. The idea was to have a carefully tuned overdrive that would produce the harmonic richness, and midrange punch and carefully tailored low end that Doug sought, coupled with a very special boost section. The two sections we're designed to be used both separately and in series (the way Doug normally uses the pedal). After nearly two years of R&D, (Doug used early versions on some parts of Whitesnake's Good to Be Bad CD) we've delivered a box that metal of Doug's exacting specifications. Hear the Rocket Fuel yourself on tour with Doug and Whitesnake when they come to your town.
- Specially tuned overdrive and boost in one box - Individual on / off footswitches
- 3 way bass shift switch to dial in the right amount of bass for your rig.
- True Bypass
- Ultra bright white and yellow LEDs
Majik Box about the LTD edition:
With the excitement surrounding the new Whitesnake CD, Forevermore and the world tour in support this opus, we decided that we wanted to celebrate our association with Doug Aldrich this year. Doug didn't want us to mess with the sound or features of the pedal, so we decided to do something cosmetically, that would really elevate the look of the pedal. After months of R&D, we will be releasing the Limited Edition Doug Aldrich Rocket Fuel LTD this week. Only 100 will be made available worldwide.
This pedal is identical to the original Rocket Fuel in terms of sound, but the casing gets a very special anodized treatment we developed together with a custom hot rod shop. We call it the Majik Box "Copper Patina" color pattern. This special process conforms to Mil-A-8625, ASTM, Military and Automotive Standards but most of all, looks amazing!! We are only offering 100 of these special boxes worldwide and for a limited time. Each Rocket Fuel LTD. will come with Certificate of Authenticity, signed and numbered by Doug Aldrich and a Doug Aldrich Rocket Fuel T-Shirt in your size.
