Hendrix tone courtesy of Jim Dunlop

James Marshall Hendrix is the undisputed High King of electric guitar; armed with a Strat, a Marshall and not much else, he kick started a musical revolution.

For years tone hounds have been on the hunt for that definitive Hendrix sound, the rich harmonic quality, crisp sustain and flawless dynamics that only he could create. His devastatingly simple set up proving more than ever that tone is all in the fingers! Fear not though, for those looking to get that little bit closer to true Hendrix tonality, Jim Dunlop have just released a series of pedals packed to the brim with luscious Jimi mojo.

The Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face was a cornerstone of Jimi’s tone, for monstrous, psychedelic leads and slick blues tones, it was his go to pedal. The JHM5 delivers these delicious vintage tones in all their sonic glory. Utilising the same circuit design as the original, the JHM5 is a great place to start on the quest for Hendrix tone.

One of Jimi’s most iconic moments is the other worldly Purple Haze solo, kicking on his original cheese wedge Octavio, he took us into uncharted sonic realms. The classic octave up effect adding a new layer of majestic texture and flavour to one of the all-time greatest guitar tracks. The JHM6 is a meticulously replicated, rehoused and altogether more usable take on this uber cool pedal.

Recreating the classic Uni-Vibe chorus/vibrato from the landmark Band of Gypsys album, the JHM7 delivers that late '70s Leslie style goodness that Hendrix somehow managed to manipulate out. A mega pedal that creates some beautiful, rich textures, the JHM7 is a fraction of the size of Jimi's Shin-ei unit but kicks out the same glorious analogue tones.

The classic Band of Gypsys fuzz was a mystery red Fuzz Face style pedal with a tone unlike any other. For years people have been attempting to deliver this mega tone, more biting and aggressive than Jimi's other Fuzz pedals. It has recently been credited as an old Octavio unit that didn't feature the Octave up facility. With the JHM8, you get closer to the legendary Woodstock fuzz than ever before.

With a robust standard MXR pedal size housing, these awesome pedals feature artwork from iconic rock artist Gered Mankowitz. A worthy tribute to the Daddy of modern guitar, the legend of James Marshall Hendrix lives on!
