Description

Are you looking for an overdrive that is not transparent and adds its own character and attitude? The JHS Moonshine V2 Overdrive Pedal is for you. The Moonshine V2 overdrive is a highly unique and massively tweaked version of the most famous overdrive housed in a little green enclosure. Blues, rock, country, jazz, and even hardcore/metal players will find this is an indispensable tool for shaping and creating unique mid heavy tones for almost any need.

The Moonshine V2 is still the core tone of the version one and retains the simple Volume, Tone, and Drive knobs. However on the Moonshine V2 JHS has added a new Clean knob to blend in any amount of clean signal to your tone! The simple 2-position “Proof” toggle gives you everything from low gain amp-like breakup with powerful colored boost settings to grinding, heavy overdrive that reaches to the very edge of cranked amp distortion.

In the down position, you’ll find the highest gain settings, lots of saturation and sustain and the most mid-range goo available. In the up position are the more open and forceful crunchy tones that will make any amp beg for mercy. The up position also adds more overall volume and more headroom to those searching for cleaner applications.

The tone control goes down as smooth as Grandpa’s White Lightning, with none of the harsh ice-pick characteristics that many overdrives often have in the brighter settings.

Just like the SuperBolt pedal, the Moonshine uses an internal 9 to 18 V charge pump that allows it to run on normal 9 V but converting it internally to 18 V for an enormous amount of headroom, added low-end, and more overall punch.

This may be the most girthy, thick overdrive you will ever plug into. If you’re a fan of stacking overdrives, you’ll love putting this in front of or behind your favorite drive, booster, or fuzz. The Moonshine delivers on any style amp, easily producing anything from SRV classic Stratocaster/Fender amp tones with class to huge “wall of rock” The Edge-style force through a Vox.

On another note, you might find a few Dumble-esque lead settings that will have you feeling like you saved a cool $100,000 in search of that sacred tone. Last but not least, it kills on bass guitar, the reason it was originally designed.

This pedal requires standard 9 V DC negative power, consuming less than 100 mA.
