    Product Description

    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 Overdrive. 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.

    JHS make exceptional overdrive and distortion pedals, and the 3 Series is no different. Here you can dial in a wide range of gritty tones, including a boost style heat, a low-gain breakup and a mid-gain tube amp-esque grunt. Controls are extremely simple, with the body dial acting as a one-knob EQ to set the brightness of your voicing.

    Two distinct characters are on offer using the unique gain toggle. Select a compressed saturated punch or a more lively dynamic crunch.

    Great pedal at a great price. You can get from a gritty, almost transparent boost and on in to Tube Screamer territory and a bit beyond. Some people have said it's "characterless", which I think misunderstands the pedal. You wouldn't hear it and say "that's a JHS 3 overdrive", but you might say "that's a nice Tele sound" or wevs. Most every basic overdrive sound you need with JHS U.S. built quality gets a big thumbs up from me.
