Product Description

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).

The JHS Pedals 3 Series is a collection of pedals designed to give you affordability and simplicity without compromising quality. Each 3 Series pedal is made by us in Kansas City, MO, using high-quality parts, quality control, and attention to every detail. Each pedal has three simple controls and one toggle that offer a wide range of sounds, perfect for beginners and professionals alike. The JHS Pedals 3 Series will inspire your playing and help you explore new sounds at a totally approachable price point.

The 3-Series Screamer is the beloved JHS Tube Screamer “Strong Mod”, but in a brand-new affordable pedal. This pedal represents years of Josh playing around with the legendary Tube Screamer circuit and wanting to offer those changes in an affordable package. You will find more clean headroom, better usability as a boost, more versatile drive and tone controls as well as a more pleasing frequency response. This may be the most well-balanced Tube Screamer on earth, but that’s for you to decide. The 3 Series Screamer runs on 9V DC negative centre power and consumes 12mA.

I like the 3 Series pedals, this is my second one. Good sounds. Build quality is a bit delicate. Can’t see those little switches taking much abuse compared to a Boss pedal. They are marketed as affordable, which they are compared to JHS boutique stuff but they are still quite pricey for basic pedals.

I love the strong mod adds bass which makes the screamer more versatile. Plus, it is a lot cheaper than the jhs bonsai
