Hone An Incredible Range Of Overdriven Tones With The Jackson Audio Broken Arrow V2 MIDI

The Broken Arrow is a comprehensive overdrive platform that is designed to give guitarists an incredible range of overdriven tones with innovative features never before seen in any overdrive pedal ever made!

The BROKEN ARROW is a very flexible overdrive with 4 presets for clipping options, an innovative gain adjustment feature that Jackson Audio call GAIN CYCLE, and a 3 band active EQ for maximum tonal flexibility. To top it off, they added a boost circuit which is the same type of MOSFET boost circuit found on their top selling PRISM Preamp pedal.

Boost Overview

The boost circuit is in its own true bypass loop which means it can be used independently of the DRIVE circuit. The boost circuit in the BROKEN ARROW is a MOSFET based boost much like the AMP MODE found in their best selling PRISM Preamp pedal. To activate/deactivate the boost circuit simply press the BOOST footswitch.

One of the things that makes the boost in the BROKEN ARROW different from other boosts on the market is that it has 4 presets available. Each preset is EQ’d slightly differently to allow it to alter how it interacts with the overdrive circuit in the BROKEN ARROW or any other pedal you may have in your rig

Overdrive Overview

The overdrive circuit of the BROKEN ARROW is a soft clipping overdrive circuit designed in the same vein as the venerable TS-808. The distinction between the TS-808 and the BROKEN ARROW being that there is no set “mid-hump” in the BROKEN ARROW and the tone is relatively flat when all controls are set at 12:00. Given that the BROKEN ARROW features an active 3 band EQ, there was no need to force a mid bump unnecessarily as a mid bump is easily achieved by increasing the MID knob.

The overdrive portion of the BROKEN ARROW is a completely new way of using and adjusting overdrive! With 4 clipping diode presets and their innovative GAIN CYCLE feature, the BROKEN ARROW will make most other overdrive pedals obsolete!

Gain Cycle

The most exciting feature of the BROKEN ARROW is the new feature that Jackson Audio developed called GAIN CYCLE. GAIN CYCLE takes the GAIN knob setting, which selects your maximum gain, and divides that level of gain into 4 equal parts. Say for instance you have your GAIN knob set at the maximum setting or in other words, 100% gain. Every time you press both footswitches simultaneously, the gain of the pedal will jump up 25% until you get to 100%. The following press after 100% will cause the gain cycle to start again at 25%.

3-Band Active EQ

To top it off, the DRIVE circuit of the BROKEN ARROW has a 3 band active EQ. The EQ circuit features a studio grade EQ that gives tremendous tonal flexibility to the BROKEN ARROW. Based on the legendary Baxandall EQ that is featured in countless studio EQ’s, the BROKEN ARROW EQ takes this circuit and tailors it for guitarists!

Jackson Audio spent tons of time on this EQ dialing it in so it would hit all the frequencies that guitarists need to adjust, and then sweetened it by removing the ear fatiguing highs and lows that can appear at extreme settings.

MIDI Channel

By default, the BROKEN ARROW v2 ships with MIDI Channel 1 being the selected channel. This can be changed by pressing and holding the DRIVE footswitch while applying power to the BROKEN ARROW. Press the BOOST footswitch to increment the MIDI channel number.

You’ll notice that as you continue to hold the DRIVE footswitch, the BOOST LED will flash to indicate which MIDI channel you have selected. IE – 7 flashes = MIDI Channel 7. After the LED flashes, we inserted a 2-second pause so you could tell when the LED was finished flashing. The LED will continue flashing as long as you are holding down the DRIVE footswitch. Once you have selected the MIDI channel you want and have verified it by counting the flashes, simply release the DRIVE footswitch and the pedal will save this MIDI Channel to the internal EEPROM on the microprocessor and reboot.


  • Studio-grade EQ with High Bandwidth and Flat Response at 12:00 +/- 12dB Boost/Cut per control(Equalizer Circuit) Center Detents on the pots that make it easier to get back to a neutral or flat response.
  • VOLUME: Acts as a master volume for the overdrive circuit.
  • BOOST: Sets the amount of boost when the BOOST footswitch is engaged.
  • GAIN: Sets the maximum gain for the overdrive circuit.
  • BASS: The 12:00 position is totally flat with +/-12dB boost/cut on either side of center.
  • MIDDLE: The 12:00 position is totally flat with +/-12dB boost/cut on either side of center. The mid frequency is centered around 660hz.
  • TREBLE: The 12:00 position is totally flat with +/-12dB boost/cut on either side of center.
