Get the Sound You've Heard for Decades!

There are certain sounds that left an indelible mark on modern music, and the JHS SuperBolt overdrive pedal re-creates that sound through your amp. Designed to replicate the sound of certain amplifiers heard on legendary recordings by Jimmy Page and Brian Setzer among others, the SuperBolt gives you the touch sensitivity and power amp sag that made the original amps so much fun to play through. Cranked up, the SuperBolt is mean and nasty, but without the brittleness that haunts so many other overdrives. At lower settings, you get a more subtle, darker tone suitable for jazz or less aggressive music. However you use it, the JHS SuperBolt will reinvigorate your pedalboard.

JHS SuperBolt Overdrive Pedal at a Glance:
  • Classic amp and overdrive tones in a pedal
  • JHS pedals are handcrafted tone machines
Classic amp and overdrive tones in a pedal

The JHS SuperBolt controls are pretty basic: Volume, Tone, and Drive. They work together to re-create the classic sound you've heard for decades. Even though the original amps were devoid of a Master Volume, the SuperBolt's Volume knob works in conjunction with the the Drive knob. Dial in your grittiness and manage the volume with the Volume. The Tone control is used to shape the treble content from dark to bright and anything in between. The Hi/Low toggle acts much like the Hi/Low inputs found on older amps, with the Hi setting giving you more headroom, upper mids, and grit, and the Low position being a mellower setting with a darker tonality.

JHS pedals are handcrafted tone machines

When you plug your guitar into a JHS pedal like the SuperBolt, you're tapping into care and passion that few manufacturers put into their products. Each JHS pedal is handbuilt and tested by the JHS team in Kansas City, Missouri. Because they design their pedals for specific musical purposes, we're sure there's a JHS pedal that's perfect for any player's rig.

JHS SuperBolt Overdrive Pedal Features:
  • The classic amp sound you've heard for decades in a compact pedal
  • Dial in sounds from edgy to mellow with ease
  • Hi/Low switch adjusts the amount of headroom
