Vemuram Jan Ray Overdrive Pedal

Written by

Elliot Stent

The Jan Ray is a natural sounding overdrive pedal that intentionally doesn't change the relationship between your guitar and amp. It doesn't compress or colour the sound as much as a TS style drive would but it pushes the front-end of a tube a tube amp hard enough to give you sweet sustain and breakup.

Transparent overdrive

The word has been bandied about many times before but the Jan Ray is one of the original (and best) transparent overdrives on the market. It doesn't add that mid-range hump and you can think of it more as a spark to ignite a good amp and guitar combination.

Simple Setup

The layout is familiar and easy to use and you'll probably want to tailor the preferred outcome from the pedal by using the saturation trim knob (To access the trimmer you need a small screwdriver and it's located at the top of the pedal). You can take your overdrive sound from mild to fat and saturated (though not in heavily distorted terms).

Controls from top left are: Volume, Gain

Bottom left to right: Bass, Treble

Here's what Vemuram say about the Jan Ray

The Fender Magic 6 sound! An easy to handle overdrive with great sustain without any unnatural compression. It keeps the characteristics of the tones that the guitars naturally produce. The Jan Ray reproduces that great sustaining punchy clear tones of the blackface Fender amps from the 60's. The tone is crispy yet the low is warm and mellow.
