Overdrive Pedal that Nails Andy Timmons's Tone

The JHS AT Drive is Andy Timmons's signature overdrive and is his take on the JHS Pedals Angry Charlie. With the AT Drive, Andy stayed very close tonally to his inspiration, but he added a couple options to make his pedal more versatile. The 3-way headroom switch gives you the gain and response of 25-, 50-, and 100-watt amplifiers. And the Air control fine tunes the high frequencies to help the pedal work well through any amp. So if you're looking to nail Andy Timmons's lead guitar tone, the AT Drive is the pedal that will get you there.

  • 3-way headroom switch
  • Works with any amp
The Andy Timmons Tone

A cranked British-style amplifier has always been the core of Andy Timmons's sound. But Andy found himself sometimes having to play through unfamiliar amplifiers and struggling to get his tone. That's why he bonded so quickly with JHS's British amp-in-a-box pedal the Angry Charlie. By adding a couple of options to this design, his signature AT Drive is able to get his identifiable singing tone through any clean amplifier. And its wide range of gain helps Andy keep all the nuance that his sound is famous for.

3-way headroom switch

The biggest difference from the Angry Charlie is the AT Drive's 3-way headroom switch. JHS describes this feature as a way to get real 25-, 50-, and 100-watt tube amp performance from a pedal. The 100-watt mode has the most headroom and clarity. The 50-watt position gives you a touch of compression to simulate a cranked amp's power section. And the 25-watt setting is the most compressed and overdriven. Sweetwater players love this setting for a boutique low-watt amp sound.

Works with any amp

Avoiding high-end fizz is very important when using distortion pedals and was paramount to Andy when designing the AT Drive. The Air control lets you dial in the highest frequencies of the pedal to whatever amplifier you are running. If it's a dark amp, you can run the control a bit higher. Pull it back for a really aggressive sounding amp. This knob makes the AT Drive especially wonderful for players who often play through rental or unfamiliar amplifiers.

JHS Pedals AT (Andy Timmons) Drive Effects Pedal Features:
  • Andy Timmons signature overdrive pedal
  • Driven British amp-in-a-box
  • 3-way headroom switch varies gain and response
  • Air control tunes the high frequencies
The AT Drive is a great option if you can only have one dirt pedal in your rig.

i made the right choice

This is great because its very tweakable, and the tweaks all sound good. I can finally get my Les Paul neck pickup sounding like it should. Also it has a great drive range, its got the sustain, so many drives don't, you can't really get them much past that rockabilly sound that americans love and that I don't understand. Andy and JHS have nailed it. Its disgusting how many drive pedals I've sold - but this one makes me happy.

JHS AT Drive Pedal

Excellent pedal to compliment the Mesa Boogie Recto-Verb 25. Been looking for a while for a distortion pedal that wasn't too compressed. The Mesa has such great distortion as it is, it is hard to find a pedal that does better. The JHS AT has great sustain, deep distortion without being compressed. There is only one down side. My wife doesn't know one pedal from the next or one guitar from the next. But she knows candy and when I order from Sweetwater, the candy comes and I'm left explaining what did I buy now. From now on, I'll eat it before she gets home.

Great Service - Great effect

This is an outstanding sounding, well built, quiet effect, that covers the Marshall sound and much more. Has a permanent spot on my pedalboard. Thanks to Sweetwater representative Brian who contacted me by phone and gave me an outstanding deal!

JHS @ Andy Timmons

Awesome pedal, can't say enough about it! I got this pedal as something to use on my clean channel of my Hughes & Kettner Tubemeister 18 head w/cabinet. I'm very skeptical about stand alone drive pedals because most of them don't sound like they do in the demos or just sound really harsh, buzzy and bad. To be fair this is the most I've spent on one, normally a Tubescreamer to push a driven sound kinda old guy. This thing sounds great, the 'headrooms' really change the volume, compression, and gain characteristics of the pedal. Rolling back on the volume knobs cleans up the highest gain with ease, pedal is as clear and articulate as you want or as dirty as you need it to be. The clarity is great and the tone control really work!!! Not a bad sound out of this thing!!!
