4 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 4 years' warranty and 60 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 4 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 4 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Z.Vex Vexter Box of Rock Guitar Pedal

Details

The Box of Rock is Z.Vex Effect's first "distortion" pedal, highly specialized to simulate the "everything on 10" sound of a classic Marshall JTM45 non-master-volume amplifier. You can use the Box of Rock successfully with many different amplifiers. Once you've set your maximum needed drive on the pedal, use your guitar's volume control to adjust for the exact amount of distortion you need, all the way down to very clean and clear with most drive settings.

You will notice the words "Distortron engine" on the Vexter version of this pedal. This is what Z.Vex named this distortion circuit. On the hand-painted version, the stomp switch on the right is labelled "ROCK" instead, because their paint brushes are too wide for so many small letters. Otherwise the two pedals are identical.

The Box of Rock also contains an extremely high-headroom, unity-to-50X gain booster with nominal input impedance and low hiss. It is very similar to the SHO boost circuit, with refinements to make it sound more like a standard amp input and less glassy. The boost channel can be used alone or in conjunction with the "Distortron engine" channel. The boost channel follows the distortion channel so that the distortion is able to hit your amp harder (at a higher volume) when both switches are engaged for boosting solos. Look out when boosting!

Features/Specifications:

    The Controls:

    • Drive: Sets the amount of distortion. Start around 1:00 o'clock

    • Tone: Adjust for treble content. Start around 2:00 o'clock

    • Vol: Adjust for distortion engine volume level. Start around 9:00 o'clock

    • Boost: Sets the boost level, which is engaged with the left stomp switch. Start around the "11:00 o'clock" point. The Drive and Boost controls are based on Z.VEX's original Super Hard-On gain controls, so they can crackle when turned. This is perfectly normal.

Operation:

    Plug your guitar (or any effect's output) into the right hand input jack. Plug the output into an amp or other effect's input. Rock out. Careful with the Boost setting when using a high-powered amp with lots of headroom... you may be shocked at how loud it can get!

    The best way to complete this pedal is to run it through a Marshall amplifier on a warm clean setting (try strapping the channels, setting the volumes below 3, and setting all other controls to 6 as a start point), which has the proper voicing to reveal the "rock" in the Box of Rock.

Battery Change:

    If the performance of your pedal seems diminished or the LEDs become very dim, it's time to change your battery. Remove the four screws on the bottom of the pedal and carefully remove and replace the old battery, putting it back exactly in the centre of the pedal on edge so that it is gripped firmly by the lid when it is screwed back in place.

Power Consumption:

    Uses a 9V battery. The low current operation of this pedal's circuit will give you a long battery life. Current draw is approximately 3mA. A DC power jack is provided on the side of the pedal.
