Long known for their colorful effects (both in tone and appearance), JHS Pedals blew everyone's collective mind when they announced in the lead up to Winter NAMM that they would be releasing their first 500 Series units. Taking their compelling pedals and applying them to pro audio gear is a huge step for Josh Scott and Co., and should propel them into a new stratosphere full of fans who've never experienced JHS Pedals before. Catch our breakdown of all their new gear below, including 500 Series and effects.
Kodiak: Stop us if you've heard this before? An all analog signal path tap-tempo tremolo in the 500 Series format. Yeah, we can't believe it either!
Superbolt: If you want to put a little dirt onto your vocals or drums, the Superbolt 500 Series is relentless and will add its all analog grim to your recordings.
The Emperor: Another first in the 500 Series genre, JHS has created a tap-tempo modulation effect unit with analog chorus, pitch vibrato and powerful modulation.
Colour Box: Utilizing the famous 1073 gain stage, the Colour Box boasts two of these discrete gain blocks for maximum headroom and distortion, along with seven controls for shaping tone.
Pulp N Peel: A unique take on compression that will breathe life into drums, vocals and instruments, the Pulp N Peel 500 features a THAT 1512 internal mic pre and THAT 1646 output section.
