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. This incarnation puts this incredible pedal in a cool black case with a red logo that you can only get at Sweetwater! 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.

JHS Pedals AT (Andy Timmons) Drive Effects Pedal at a Glance:
  • The Andy Timmons Tone
  • 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:
  • Special red-on-black finish only available at Sweetwater
  • 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 have a marshall silver jubilee, great clean and great overdrive channels, but the crunch channel ,you have to pull out a dail when your on the clean channel and push it back in to go to gain channel, I needed something to work off the clean channel to work the crunch an not lose that marshall crunch this pedal did just that can control all channels with my footswitchs now and this pedal sounds as good as my marshall for that crunch sound that's saying a lot !! thanks to ROB KRAMER for hooking me up with this pedal told him what I wanted and what I had and got back to me a couple hours later with this pedal and said I think this is what your looking for boy was he right !!!!!

Get This Pedal!

I researched and played a ton of pedals before deciding on this one. The three-way toggle for headroom gives you the ability to achieve almost any level of overdrive. I've used it to play classic rock, blues, jazz, and even in a Megadeth tribute band. I use it for all my studio work. The EQ and Air controls let you hone the tone anywhere from warm and smooth to high and screechy. This is a must have! Buy it!

A keeper

I have 14 OD's...I use them all..live too. This one is a keeper. better sounding then my Friedman BE-ODthough not as much sustain or swell.I have had some much praised OD but only kept them for a couple of months. Lots sound great on video but they have no responce to your personal touch.they play like a cheap digital. This one has it all. Sound touch and response.I will never tell you you will not buy another OD. I will tell you you will still keep this one. Bulletproof!!!

JHS Andy Timmons Angry Charlie limited edition in black.

Love it as much as the red AT AC it is one of the best distortion pedals I own. 3 choices of wattages 25, 50, and 100. It's great. Would replace it asap if something happened to it.

"GREAT" pedal

If you're looking for a Marshall style pedal, this one has it in spades. Sounds great right out of the box. I love it for it's thick/richness it has. I also like to stack it in front of my other overdrive with the gain low to thicken my sound for leads. The wattage toggle is great for changing the headroom and compression. Great harmonics too.
