JHS Pedals has recently launched four new Guitar Effects pedals with historical models. The Legend of Fuzz Series includes the JHS Supreme, JHS Smiley, JHS Crimson, and JHS Bender Fuzz pedals.
The JHS Supreme is an exact replica of the popular Shin-Ei Super-Fuzz, which is used by stars such as Pete Townshend, the Black Keys or the White Stripes. Volume and Distort can be regulated. On the side of the pedal, there are two additional switches for Tone and the ‘JHS Mode’. The strength of the Supreme is classic Octave Fuzz sounds.
The JHS Smiley offers a faithful reproduction of the earliest silicon fuzz face and has the sound character of a vintage Arbiter pedal. It reacts particularly dynamic when working with the guitar volume. Classic fuzz sounds that are supposed to draw a smile on the player’s face.
The JHS Crimson is an exact replica of a Mike Matthews Red Army Overdrive by Sovtek. There are controls for volume, tone, and distort. The unique ‘JHS Mode’ can be activated via a switch on the side. Those looking for the sound of Smashing Pumpkins, Wilco, Sonic Youth, and Dinosaur Jr. will have the right sparring partner at their side with the JHS Crimson.
Return to Bender – the JHS Bender is an attempt to recreate one of the most popular Tonebenders of all time: the 1973 MK3 Silver/Orange ‘Onomatopoeia’ version. Volume, tone and distort can be adjusted. This pedal also offers the ‘JHS Mode’, which gives the sound more gain and a full boost in the middle. The JHS Bender should be able to generate anything from crunch to distortion to full aggression.
