Undoubtedly one of JHS Pedals's most expansive and versatile inventions. The American stompbox whizzes worked closely with legendary guitarist and producer Stu G to create the Kilt V2, an overdrive equipped to cover both studio and touring needs.
The updated V2 Kilt contains the same highly-detailed circuit as the original, but invites a few positive tweaks here and there to further refine your tone. JHS specifically chose an op-amplifier for a smoother gain structure and lower background noise.
A unique three-toggle system sets the style of overdrive at hand. Both G1 and G2 toggles switched down produces a low-gain chimey amp breakup. Flip G1 up to lay on some more gain for chunkier riffing. Push it back down and flip G2 up to take the Kilt closer into distortion territory, with a spongier saturation and plenty of sustain. Push both switches up for a blistering fuzzy distortion with a satisfying gated feel.
The final cut and flat switch beefs up the low end when flicked onto the latter setting. This is the little bit of magic you've been missing from your heavy riffs.
Red Remote Compatible
The Red Remote now works with the Kilt V2! That means you can hit the Red Remote footswitch to toggle fuzz and overdrive without flipping any of the toggles.
