  • Description

    The JHS Pedals Moonshine Overdrive is a highly unique and massively tweaked version of the most famous overdrive ever created and housed in a little green enclosure. Blues, rock, country, jazz, and even hardcore/metal players will find this is an indispensable tool for shaping and creating unique mid heavy tones for almost any need.

    You’ll immediately feel at home with the basic Volume, Tone, and Drive knobs, so tweak away! The simple 2-position “Proof” toggle gives you everything from low gain amp-like breakup with powerful colored boost settings to grinding, heavy overdrive that reaches to the very edge of cranked amp distortion.

    In the down position, you’ll find the highest gain settings, lots of saturation and sustain and the most mid-range goo available. In the up position are the more open and forceful crunchy tones that will make any amp beg for mercy. The up position also adds more overall volume and more headroom to those searching for cleaner applications. The tone control goes down as smooth as Grandpa’s White Lightning, with none of the harsh ice-pick characteristics that many overdrives have in the brighter settings.

    Just like the JHS Pedals SuperBolt pedal, the Moonshine uses an internal 9v to 18v charge pump that allows it to run on normal 9v but converting it internally to 18v for an enormous amount of headroom, added low-end and more overall punch.

    We wouldn’t be surprised if this is the most girthy, thick overdrive you have ever plugged into. If you’re a fan of stacking overdrives, you’ll love putting this in front of or behind your favorite drive, booster, or fuzz. The Moonshine delivers on any style amp, easily producing anything from SRV classic Stratocaster/Fender amp tones with class to huge “wall of rock” The Edge-style force through a Vox. On another note, you might find a few Dumble-esque lead settings that will have you feeling like you saved a cool $100,000 in search of that sacred tone. Last but not least, it kills on bass guitar, the reason it was originally designed.

    This pedal requires standard 9V DC Negative power and measures 2.2"x4.3"x1.5"

    Hand-built by real people in Kansas City, Missouri.

    Warranty Info:

    Moonshine Overdrive Pedal

    JHS pedals carry an unconditional "TWO YEAR" full warranty for ANY problem related to the function or operation of that pedal due to faulty parts and/or other internal problem. Simply send a copy of the receipt of purchase and JHS Pedals will honor it up to two years. JHS Pedals does not cover things such as broken knobs, pots and jacks due to abuse. JHS Pedals build them to last but not to be thrown out of an airplane. However, JHS Pedals will repair problems that are out from under their warranty like the above at a very reasonable price. Several JHS Pedals have internal trim pots which are set and sealed very carefully for the function of the circuit and it should be noted that tampering with the trim pots will void the warranty.
