    Product Description

    The Angry Charlie has become a staple of the JHS line over the years. In the V3, we set out to keep everything that has made it a star in place while adding some tweaks for even greater flexibility and usability. The V3 is a force to be reckoned with in the high gain pedal territory. It convincingly and accurately breathes JCM800 tones with ease.

    The Angry Charlie has five controls: Volume, Drive, Bass, Mids and Treble. The Volume control acts as a standard master volume control on an amplifier. Simply turn the control to the right and you are louder, turn it to the left and you are quieter. The Drive control decides the amount of overall dirt/overdrive that enters the signal path. Turn it up for more distortion and down for less. New to the V3 are the Bass, Mids, and Treble controls. To faithfully replicate a Marshall amplifier we felt it was time to incorporate a full Marshall-style tone stack.  All three of these controls act as a cut and boost, while at noon they are relatively flat. The right 1/4" jack is the input, and the left is the output.

    If you are a glutton for high gain overdrive/distortion that has a British flavor full of rich bass response, thick mids, and a balanced high-end response, the Angry Charlie V3 will change your life. Well, your gear life.

    This pedal requires standard 9V DC Negative power, consumes less than 100mA, and measures 2.2"x4.3"x1.5".

    Single coils need some thick punch and grit, this pedal will do the job. Have mine in chain after an overdrive, for quality tones at a bedroom volume.

    Great high gain pedal if you like that classic aggresive marshall crunch with all the prescence and harmonics. Far too much gain for me but great sounds even with the gain low on the pedal. Loads of articulation so sounds great stacked with other gains pedals too.

    If you need a cranking Marshall JCM800 in its prime but in a box...buy this pedal. The new EQ possibilities makes it one of the best I’ve heard

    Helmut Zahn11th Apr 2019

    Best distortion/amp in a box ( of many I have....🥴) to date.

    Marshall JCM800 in a red box.

    Best distortion I've ever used

    Steven17th May 2016

    Not sure its a hot roded JCM800 in box but it sounded amazing and worked great with all my amps (Marshall Class 5, Blues Junior and Hot Rod Deluxe III), would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to convert a clean amp into a snarling beast!

    Marko14th Apr 2016

    I had the earlier version of Angry Charlie and due to three band active EQ, I thought that the new version would be even better. It is. Angry Charlie's the best distortion pedal that I've ever used and the newer version just rocks your socks.
