JHS Sweet Tea 2-in-1 Dual Overdrive Pedal

Two classics in one pedal!

Merging the JHS-808 and Angry Charlie into one pedal, the JHS Sweet Tea gives you two distinctively different flavors in one pedal. The right side is where the 808 circuit lives, giving you the classic overdrive sound with a smoother interpretation of the tone control to make it more user-friendly than the original along with a 3-way gain switch to shape the saturation. On the left side resides the Angry Charlie, which conjures the famous "Brown Sound" of a British head pushed in just the right way. Having two pedals in one is awesome, but JHS didn't stop there. The "order toggle" lets you pick the order of the Sweet Tea's signal path, making an already flexible pedal even more of a tonal Swiss army knife.

JHS Sweet Tea Overdrive Pedal at a Glance:
  • Two classics brought together in a single pedal
  • JHS pedals are handcrafted tone machines
Two classics brought together in a single pedal

Why settle for one awesome tone when you can have two? And then what if you could stack these two tones in different orders for even more flexibility? That's exactly what you get with the JHS Sweet Tea. In fact, it's its multi-faceted capabilities that makes it so popular at Sweetwater. JHS started the Sweet Tea with a legendary OD pedal design, and tweaked it to create a versatile stompbox that will do your right no matter what your musical persuasion. Then they added the classic sound of an overdriven British amp. Together you get a huge amount of tone-shaping power that will push an amp in any way you desire.

JHS pedals are handcrafted tone machines

When you plug your guitar into a JHS pedal like the Sweet Tea, you're tapping into care and passion that few manufacturers put into their products. Each JHS pedal is hand built 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 Sweet Tea Overdrive Pedal Features:
  • Cascade-able overdrives for sonic options
  • A pair of classic tones in a single pedal
  • Hand-crafted for exceptional tone and durability
Classic amp and overdrive tones made easy with the JHS Sweet Tea!

The most versatile OD & DIST Pedal !!!

My stage and recording life has changed in a very positive vay after I bought this pedal. I am using this pedal in every possible way. Has the best transparent overdrive and clean boost sound you can get. The Angry Charlie almost sounds like a modded JCM 800 but you can get retro distortion pedal sounds if you want to. Simply a best buy. Worths every penny.

Gut busting tones

The right side of the sweet tea is JHS' take on the classic Maxxon 808 circuit (originally built for Ibanez in the TS808 here in the US) The left side is JHS' take on a Marshall-y brown type distortion The ability to toggle which is first in the chain is a nice bonus feature, the versatility of the two individually is the selling point. The 808 side is hands down the best TS808/maxxon 808 I have ever heard. It also has 3 (gain stages?) for a wide variety of driven tones The Charlie side is literally the most versatile and best sounding distortion I've ever used (I've had them all from DOD-Digitech-Boss etc) It doesn't get too muddy in the mix and can do everything from light distorted rock tones to a more full on tight metal sound The two together is beautiful to the ears, running the 808 first gives me some drive on my marshall's clean channel, not too much for verses and chorus but enough to get the riffs rocking, kicking in the Charlie side after the 808 puts you in full in finger licking goodness. But that's just one of the many ways I have mine set up, the possibilities are endless, I can get anything from thick bluesy warmth to tight ear slitting metal on this stomp my head still can't wrap around how that's possible I now understand why so many musicians swear by "boutique" companies over the mass produced brands, not saying there's anything wrong with those, I have many mass produced pedals from many companies like boss etc. but it's like comparing a great line assembled Ford or Chevy muscle car to an amazing hand built American professional race car. Buy this pedal you will not regret it!

Sweet Indeed!

I've played a few JHS pedals locally, and have been blown away by the sounds. I got an email from my sales engineer (Richard Whittington) letting me know Sweetwater was now a JHS dealer, I pulled the trigger on the Sweet Tea the next day. Basically, it's 2 OD pedals in one. A lower gain tube screamer type circuit, and a hi gain JCM 800 type circuit. Both are awesome. Plus you can run them both at the same time, and switch the order, TS into Angry Charlie, or vice versa. So in away, it's like 4 pedals in one. How does it sound? Well, I was able to take a Zvez Distortron AND a Way Huge Green Rhino off my pedal board. So that speaks volumes right there. The Angry Charlie (JCM 800) side of the pedal is totally addicting. The TS side is perfect, literally best tube screamer I've ever played, the tone control is magical.

Sweet Tea so cool it doesn't need ice...

I've had mine about 6 months, and this is a stellar piece of gear. The TS side does live up to the "best TS" hype...and this is gonna sound TOTALLY against the grain but IMHO it is quite transparent! The Angry Charlie side is nice and juicy, and blends very well with the TS side. The best thing about it is that it has a refined, HD quality that just sounds beautiful and natural, more so than a number other high-end, boutique dirt boxes that I have. BTW, Would it be too much to ask of JHS to build a new version that has a Morning Glory in it, too??? I think the paint job is kinda ugly in the pictures (I get it, it looks like tea), but it's quite a pretty finish in person with nice texturing. Also, an EHX Soul Food put in front of the TS side is quite a good combo, as well!
