Product Description

Ross pedals have returned! After countless hours of painstaking research and design, the renowned designs of the legendary '70s brand have been brought back to life, with each pedal manufactured in the classic Ross enclosure style at the JHS Pedals facility in Kansas City, MO — using the same stringent quality standards you've come to expect. Notable improvements over the vintage units include soft-touch bypass, lower noise, and a mode switch with two settings for added versatility.

The Ross Distortion is an op-amp hard clipper built around the classic 1970s topology seen in pedals like the MXR Distortion Plus, the DOD 250, the Pro Co RAT and the Boss DS-1. While this pedal can be used in almost any situation, it excels at creating natural, tube-like overdrive/distortion by pushing your amplifier into natural breakup.


  • Level: Controls the volume.
  • Distort: Sets the amount of hard-clipping distortion.
  • Side Push Switch: Toggles between two different versions of the circuit produced during its fifteen year history: Germanium mode ("Era 2" version) and Silicon mode ("Era 3" version).
  • Footswitch: Activates the pedal via soft-touch bypass switching. The status LED indicates that the circuit is active.
