At JHS Pedals, fuzz pedals have been in the lineup for over a decade. They've designed original circuits, replicated classics, and have seen the trend of fuzz popularity come and go. The "Legends Of Fuzz" series is JHS Pedals' tribute to the most important fuzz circuits ever made. It is their way of ensuring that the stories of these effects live on in the music that you are going to make. From the earliest days of fuzz in the mid-'60s London scene to the 1990s ex-Soviet military factories that brought the Big Muff back to life, fuzz tells a story, and that story includes guitarists just like you. There is nothing more primitive than plugging your guitar into a vintage fuzz circuit; it is raw, untamed, and so pure that it pushes the boundaries of what your instrument can accomplish. Plug into a fuzz and plug into sixty years of beautifully broken sound.

In the late 1960s, Japan was bursting at the seams with amazing guitar pedal companies and innovations. One of the most sought after effects from this time and place is the Univox Super-Fuzz. This effect is an octave fuzz that turns any note or chord into a thick and searing texture. Playing a high octave up alongside the distorted note, this is an effect that demands your attention. First produced inside of a large amp head sized multi-effect unit called the Honey* Psychedelic Machine (1967) and then re-released a few months later as a standalone pedal called the Honey* Baby Crying Effect. Honey* soon became Shin-Ei* and by 1968 Shin-Ei* became the guitar pedal powerhouse of Japan, making Shin-Ei* branded effects as well as producing those same circuits for dozens of brands like Shaftesbury, Kent, Crown, Jax, and America's Univox. This circuit found its way into the lineup of brands all over the world.

Thanks to product placement by Pete Townsend of The Who, the Univox Unicord Super-Fuzz version found fame above all the rest. First produced in a simple, unassuming grey metal enclosure (1968), it transitioned into a more eye catching form factor utilizing a large rectangle foot pad that said SUPER-FUZZ in large letters across the top (1970). Red and blue, black and grey, white and black, you could pick your color.

The Supreme is an exact replica of JHS Pedals founder Josh Scott's favorite Super-Fuzz in his collection, the 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.
