1992 Mike Matthews Red Army Overdrive ReplicaThe Legends Of Fuzz series is a collection of the world's most historic, rare, and sought after circuits.
Fuzz pedals have been a staple of the JHS lineup for over a decade. The Legends Of Fuzz series is a tribute to the most important fuzz circuits ever made. From the earliest days of fuzz in the mid-60's London scene to the 1990's ex-Soviet military factories that brought the Big Muff back to life, fuzz tells a story, and that story includes guitarists just like you.
The Crimson is an exact replica of Mike Matthews' 90's era Red Army Overdrive- which was inspired by his own 70's era Big Muff.
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.
If you love the tones of the Smashing Pumpkins, Wilco, Sonic Youth, David Gilmour, White Stripes and Dinosaur Jr, then this is the pedal for you.
VOLUME - Controls overall output volume. Left is less, right is more.
TONE - Controls the brightness of the sound. Left is darker, right is brighter.
