JHS Crimson Fuzz
Started in early 2007 by way of an accidental DIY repair to a Boss Blues Driver in Josh's Jackson, MS apartment, JHS Pedals has evolved into a world recognised boutique effects pedal company.
JHS Pedals is the result of Josh Scott's desire to build quality handmade effects that stand out in an over-saturated market. Started in early 2007 by way of an accidental DIY repair to a Boss Blues Driver in Josh's Jackson, MS apartment, JHS Pedals has evolved into a world recognised boutique effects pedal company. In the age of machine made and mass assembled guitar effects, JHS values our commitment to hand-building every unit by real people in Kansas City, Missouri.
The JHS "Legends of Fuzz" series pays tribute to the most important fuzz circuits ever made. The Crimson is an exact replica of JHS's own Red Army Overdrive, allowing you to own a unique part of fuzz history. Only manufactured in small numbers from 1991-1992, very few examples of this still exist, making this almost impossible to find. It shares characteristics with the famous Sovtek* "Civil War" (Late 1992) version, but it stands on its own. Warmer, clearer, and more defined than any of the Soviet Big Muffs that followed, the Red Army offers a unique flavour of a very familiar effect.
The controls are Volume, Tone, and Distort. Volume sets the overall output level of the effect; turn it up and things get louder. Tone lets you sweep between bright and dark tones so that the Crimson works well with a range of different amplifiers and guitars. Distort is the distortion control; the more you turn it clockwise, the more fuzz you create. On the side you will see a "Mode" button that lets you access a never before heard "JHS Mode". Push that button for a mid frequency boost that forces your sound through the mix.
