JHS 3 Series Screamer Overdrive Pedal
An affordable Tube Screamer made in the USA
JHS founder and owner Josh Scott, started out modifying pedals. One of his most popular pedal mods was to the classic Tube Screamer. Undoubtedly a legendary sound, but not without its idiosyncrasies. The Tube Screamer can be someone limited in its usage - Josh's "Strong Mod" made it a far more versatile pedal without sacrificing its essence.
With the 3 Series Screamer, he has applied his years of experience to bring the "Strong Mod" to the masses in an affordable package. The 3 Series Screamer retains that iconic mid-hump that is the foundation of the Tube Screamer's tone, but it rolls of less bass and treble to give a fat tone with more balance. It is also less compressed than a stock Tube Screamer, giving it more clean headroom and a more usable gain range, so it works even better as a boost or a full-bore overdrive!
The +/- toggle switch changes the clipping. Up is asymmetrical clipping (which is the strong mod clipping) and down is symmetrical clipping (stock TS9 TS808 style).
