Named after 9-string Delta blues kingpin Big Joe Williams (1903-1982), Bridgeport, Connecticut’s Big Joe Stomp Box Company was founded
in 2011 by David and Paul Christian, the designers of the Pocket Rockit headphone amp. The Christian’s mission is to “capture the tonal history
of blues/rock guitar” with their product line. bigjoestompboxcompany.com
B-401 Saturated Tube
Sporting a sound reminiscent of a famous diamond-grilled British amp, this box roars with a ballsy, yet
bright and articulate overdrive. High frequencies are front and center, and engaging the High Boost switch
makes the highs even more aggressive. If the shimmer is too much for you, backing off the Presence/Tone
control tames the spikiness. The pedal is pretty sensitive to picking dynamics, so hard or soft attacks affect
its sound as well. Although the B401 doesn’t stray too far from the bell-like raunch of ’60s Brit Pop, I managed
to also dial in some excellent classic rock and melodic-metal tones.
