JHS 3 Series Distortion: Simple And Versatile Gain

The JHS Pedals 3 Series Distortion is a massively versatile distortion pedal that can achieve a wide range of tones, from medium gain crunch and heavy overdrive to full-on distortion and fuzz. Designed to provide a variety of usable sounds in any setting, this pedal is a must-have for any guitarist looking to expand their tonal palette.

Wide Range of Usable Sounds

The 3 Series Distortion features three main controls: Volume, Filter (or Tone), and Distort. These knobs allow you to dial in a wide range of sounds, from subtle crunch to heavy distortion. Whether you're looking for a light overdrive to add some grit to your tone or a full-blown fuzz for more aggressive playing, this pedal can handle it all with ease.

Gain Toggle for Enhanced Flexibility

One of the standout features of the JHS 3 Series Distortion is the Gain toggle switch. This switch allows you to choose between two distinct modes:

The Gain toggle significantly impacts how the pedal responds, making it highly adaptable to different playing styles and musical genres.
