A Compact 2-channel Overdrive and Distortion Pedal

Add a double dose of distortion to your pedalboard with the Truetone Jekyll and Hyde V3 Overdrive and Distortion pedal. The Jekyll channel is based on the Open Road pedal, but adds a Bass knob and a Clean Mix control for finding the perfect mix of grit. Hyde is far more than an amplified version of Jekyll, sporting heavier distortion and more bottom end. The flexible tone sculpting of the Bright and Voice switches make this pedal the perfect Swiss Army knife for your rig. From Blues to Metal and everything in between, Truetone's Jekyll and Hyde V3 delivers.

Truetone Jekyll and Hyde V3 Overdrive and Distortion Pedal at a Glance:
  • Flexible I/O design provides easy integration with your rig
  • High-tech circuitry that's sure to excite any tone purist
Flexible I/O design provides easy integration with your rig

Independent drive channels aren't the only flexible thing about the Truetone Jekyll and Hyde V3's configuration. Separate inputs and outputs let you use each of the Jekyll and Hyde V3's channels independently, add additional effects between them, or change the order of effects. Of course, if you don't want to patch them separately, you can just put the whole Truetone Jekyll and Hyde V3 in your signal path like any other pedal, but it's nice to know that the extra flexibility is there, in case you want to integrate it with a switching system or other gear.

High-tech circuitry that's sure to excite any tone purist

The Truetone Jekyll and Hyde V3 is a true bypass pedal by design, but a Truetone design isn't necessarily like other pedals. In this case, the switching mechanism is based on gold-plated relays and circuitry designed by RG Keen to keep it extra quiet. But sometimes buffering is better, which is why Trutone outfitted the Jekyll and Hyde V3 overdrive pedal with a Pure Tone buffer that you can set either channel to switch on or off if you like. Take it from the Sweetwater crew - no matter how you set it up, you'll be amazed by how little noise the Truetone Jekyll and Hyde V3 dual overdrive adds to your sound.

Trutone Jekyll and Hyde pedal

All I can say is WOW. Between the distortion side and overdrive side or the combination of both you can get unlimited sounds out this pedal. Running this pedal through a Blackstar 100 watt half stack. Talk with Ashton Vaudt at Sweetwater .

Jekyll & Hyde Great Pedal

Bought this a few months ago, and you can dial in the sounds you want! Very unique pedal! I had to send the first one back, had no sound whatsoever, but the folks here at Sweetwater had another one to me within 2 days! This pedal kicks butt! I gave it 5 stars cause it's been very relialbe for me, and the first gig I did with it, sounded amazing! If you take the time to experiment with this, you will find all kinds of sounds! The Overdrive is awesome on this, and the distortion can be dialed in to perfection!

Jekyll & Hyde

I had a small issue with the first one I got, But Sweetwater jumped and got it taken care of. A BIG thanx goes out to all that helped ! I have been playing for 40+ years, and virtually have tried 90% of all that is out there. I will not be without this pedal again ! The more I play, the more I find ! Hats off to Truetone !!!!!!! Thank you Sweetwater !!!!!!!!!!!

Jekyll and Hyde

You can't go wrong with this one. I've played my fair share of other distortion pedals out there but nothing compares to this bad boy. It's also one of the few distortion pedals out there that you're able to control low, mids, highs. This one is definitely a keeper.
