JHS All American Distortion:
The All American Distortion is JHS' take on one of the most sought after effects in history, the vintage RAT, which has been raised high by everyone from David Gilmour to Jeff Beck. Itís known for its unbelievable range of tones that span from clean/grit all the way to compressed sustaining fuzz. By popular demand and because of the cheap construction of the current reissues JHS decided to take on the task of introducing their very own version of an American classic that ended up having more options and mojo than they originally set out for.
First off, the All American offers a more focused frequency range than any pedal in its class. The bass and mids melt perfectly into a combination that can make a 1x12 combo sound as if you have a stack of cabs backstage. The spiky and brutal highs of the original design have been tamed and are now submitting in a very pleasing way that allows you to actually use the tone/filter knob past 25%. JHS' biggest addition is the Sweep knob that gives you instant control over the gain structure as a whole. This allows for perfect and precise tuning of the breakup and clipping in the circuit. JHS decided they wouldnít stop there but also added a three way mini gain switch that allows LED/Silicon/Open clipping for one explosively versatile pedal! Soaring sustain and heavy overdrive that bites at your ankles make the All American a force to be reckoned with.
