If you’ve ever heard an original Marshall JTM45 than you know why it’s the voice of classic Rock & Roll. The classic JTM45’s are loaded with warm, rich character that makes a Stratocaster sing and a Les Paul scream. Our Charlie Brown is voiced to transform any good amp into a living, breathing replica of the tone that built an era. After playing this pedal most people say, “Where has this been my whole life?” With the gain below 50% it is a low grit overdrive that even Hendrix would be proud of.
When you get into the upper half of the gain knob you will find a new world of natural, crunchy bite that just can’t be found anywhere else. Max it out and you will be in high gain, overdrive heaven. The Presence knob lets you roll of the perfect amount of shimmer for an unprecedented compatibility with almost any amp. This unit can cover a lot of ground and we can almost guarantee that you won’t be adding this one to your “unusable dirt box list” that you’ve accumulated over the years.
Tons of headroom, tone and class are all rolled up into the Charlie Brown.
JHS use only the highest quality Neutrik jacks, Alpha pots and top-notch components to ensure years of problem free use. Every circuit is hand wired, every case is hand drilled and no detail is overlooked. The enclosures are die-cast metal and topped with a custom hand painted design or a powder coated finish that is guaranteed to turn heads. JHS make true bypass switching our standard bypass on all pedals for optimal signal integrity when your pedal is off. However, we also give you the option of adding our high impedance buffer to any pedal we make so that your tone can stay strong in a large pedal setup. JHS are convinced that this line of hand crafted effects is the most complete catalog of tone found anywhere.
