JHS - EXPERIENCE AND QUALITY
What started with a Blues Driver repair and years of real-world experience has culminated in the amazing lineup of JHS Pedals. Josh Scott brings a commitment to quality work and practical features that infuse his products with an unmatched value.
Proudly made in Kansas City, the production and assembly of these incredible pedals are a true labor of love by a team of people who care passionately about their work.
The musicians who rely on JHS to create their art continue to be Josh's biggest inspiration, as he continues to tinker and adapt to the changing needs of todays guitar players.
The Supreme is an exact replica of Josh Scott's favorite Super-Fuzz in his collection, an extremely rare black and grey model. Although every early version of this pedal sounds strikingly similar, this 1972 unit has a certain magic that makes it stand out above the others. Imagine an Octavia Fuzz that woke up on the wrong side of the bed, and that’s what you're plugging into here: a loud, screaming, full and vibrant octave fuzz that is always at 11.
The controls are Volume and Expand. Volume makes the effect louder as you turn it and Expand increases the amount of fuzz. On the side you will see two buttons. The “Tone” button engages a mid cut that flattens out the Supreme’s attack and makes it more submissive. Think of this as a preset scooped mid EQ control. The “Mode” button activates our very own “JHS Mode” setting. You will hear a much more pronounced octave up effect, thicker mid-range, and more available volume/boost.
If you want to replicate the classic octave fuzz sounds of Pete Townsend, Black Keys, White Stripes, Beastie Boys, and Mudhoney, this is it.
VOLUME - Controls overall output volume. Left is less, right is more.
EXPAND - Acts as a fuzz control. This is the same name that the original fuzz control had. Left is less, right is more.
INPUT - If looking at the jacks from above the pedal, the input is on the right.
OUTPUT - If looking at the jacks from above the pedal, the output is on the left.
TONE - Engages a mid scooped sound. The standard sound has more of a mid hump sound that is thinner. This is the original Tone switch from the Super Fuzz.
MODE - This is our mod to the circuit. It engages a mid-boost. It’s much more noticeable on the scooped sound with the Tone switch engaged.
