Delicious British High-gain Flavor!

The JHS Angry Charlie V3 channel drive pedal captures the essence of the legendary Marshall JCM800, turning your guitar amp into a sonic flamethrower. The Angry Charlie makes conjuring British high-gain tones a breeze, delivering the rich bass response, thick mids, and balanced high end you'd expect from a hot-rodded Marshall. When they designed the Angry Charlie, JHS faithfully replicated a full Marshall-style tone stack. When cranked in either direction, the Angry Charlie's tone controls act as cuts or boosts. At 12 o'clock, they're flat. When we demo'd the Angry Charlie here at Sweetwater, we were in high-gain heaven. The JHS Angry Charlie V3 channel drive pedal is truly a force to be reckoned with!

The best overdrive I have purchased

I loved this pedal and I recommend. It so angry overdrive

Tone heaven

1st I want to give special thanks to Robert Koch my sales engineer who recommended this pedal. I was looking for a plexi in a box unit and this pedal not only nails it, but you have a variety of tones you can get with the EQ knobs. I had tried other famous brands and they sounded weak and muddy. What really blew me away abot the AC V3 was the response and clarity of notes you get even when applying gain. If you are in the market for that hot rodded plexi tone, look no further.

Marshall madness

The Angry Charlie is THE definitive answer for anyone who is looking to add Marshall tone to an otherwise clean rig! I originally used a TS9 on my Fender Blues Deluxe as my primary source for gain but after trying this pedal it's become a go-to favorite when it's time to make things dirty. For the player who loves to to carry as many tones as possible I would recommend this pedal bar none. If you ever wished you could dial up a truly authentic Marshall tone at will this is the pedal for you.

Tone for Days

You really can't go wrong with any JHS Pedal and the Angry Charlie is just another great example of this. This pedal really nails the JCM 800 drive sound and is a great inspiration for writing rock riffs. Sweetwater's service was once again outstanding and I will continue to buy my gear from them. It's refreshing to know that some companies still put effort into giving their customers a great experience. The Angry Charlie went on my board as soon as I unpacked it and I'm not planning on ever moving it. If you're looking for that classic Marshall sound but don't won't to pay that classic Marshall price, then look no further than the JHS Angry Charlie!

JHS Angry Charlie v3 - Rocks

Got this pedal last week, and it's flat out amazing. I really like like the eq to adjust the bass/mids/treble. I am playing 65 deluxe RI tube. Angry Charlie sounds amazing for high gain distortion tones on a tube amp. I cannot get a bad tone out of this pedal. I like that I can scope the mids to get Pantera and MegaDeth types of tones. This pedal is great for metal and hard rock. I can get AC/DC and Van Halen tones as well. I would recommend this pedal and as always service is amazing at sweetwater.

Sweetwater Advice

Ashton Vaudt

As a seasoned rock lead guitarist, I like high-gain tone, but can't always play at high volume. Enter the JHS Angry Charlie. I've played this pedal through Vox, Fender, and Peavey amps, and no matter what, I still get that searing Marshall tone I love - even at low volumes! It offers just enough control to make me happy, without bogging me down with a a ton of knobs. This pedal has found a permanent spot on my board.
