JHS Pedals are renowned for tonal excellence. Their premium stompboxes are packed full of gizmos galore and options aplenty - but they've taken a very different approach with the 3 Series Distortion. These affordable effects have been stripped back for pure, unadulterated JHS tone suited to both beginners and pros alike.
Raw JHS Pedals tone
Gone are the array of dials found throughout the standard JHS pedal line-up. What you're getting here is a refined, quality sound thanks to high-end electronic components and meticulous attention to detail from the Kansas City company. This is the ultimate plug-and-play pedal.
Distortion and drive are firmly in JHS' wheelhouse - the 3 Series Distortion being no exception. Crammed into the analogue pedal are a host of medium gain crunch tones, thick overdrive, distortion, and even some fuzzy goodness. You get a lot out of the three volume, filter and distort controls. Filter is like a one-knob EQ, setting the treble attack when turned up or darker character reduced.
Unique to the Series 3 Distortion is a gain voicing toggle, which changes how the effect reacts to your playing.
