JHS Legends of Fuzz CRIMSON 1992 Mike Matthews Red Army Overdrive Replica Pedal
We accept most Payment methods & offer Financing
Part of their Legends of Fuzz series, the JHS CRIMSON 1992 is an exact replica of one of the more rare fuzz pedals ever produced by EHX's own Mike Matthews. Originally meant to be a reincarnation of the legendary Big Muff, Matthews' "Red Army Overdrive" was only produced in very small batches between '91-'92, and produces an incredibly clear, warm fuzz tone that is both super easy to use, and shockingly versatile - thanks to the range of fuzz tones you can access via the Tone knob. Plus it comes with a "JHS" mode, which gives your fuzz a nice midrange boost so as to really push through the mix!
The "Legends Of Fuzz'' series is a collection of the world's most historic, rare, and sought after circuits.
At JHS, fuzz pedals have been in our lineup for over a decade. We have designed original circuits, replicated classics, and we have seen the trend of fuzz popularity come and go. The "Legends Of Fuzz'' series is our tribute to the most important fuzz circuits ever made. It is our 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-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. 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.
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.
