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.

Superb!!! Worth every cent!!!

Gain pedal solution

This is about as good as it gets for combining 808 style medium gain with the paint peeling Angry Charlie. Both are extremely useful on their own and can be stacked provide virtually an unlimited number of ultra high gain sounds. I particularly like how the tone controls on the Charlie side work- they make it easy to dial in really powerful tones with no ice pickiness.


This has to be the best distortion / overdrive pedal I have ever owned. The angry Charlie side is insane and the screamer side is super adjustable. Both of channels together is simply bliss. Yeah the price is a bit steep, but I think it's totally worth it considering all the pedals I've purchased over the years that didn't even come close to this one. Thanks you Nick Church.

All the Drive You Need

Another home run from JHS. This pedal covers all my overdrive/ distortion needs. The TS808 side is perfect for anything you would use a tubescreamer style overdrive for. The Angry Charlie side is by far the best sounding distortion pedal I have ever owned. Sweetwater and my Sales Rep Bart Amburn get 5 stars as well for outstanding customer service.

It's Sweet.

The JHS Sweet Tea is nearly the perfect overdrive/distortion pedal for me. I like the sound of the 808 side enough to be able to take my trusty Lovepedal Kanji 9 off the board. The Angry Charlie side sounds better than my Orange Tiny Terror amp distortion does. To be able to power what is essientially two great sounding pedals with only a single 9volt plug saves space on my board for other effects. I love this. My only complaint is that when I am playing live (high volume), the Angry Charlie is an annoying hummer. That kind of thing is to be expected from a high gain pedal and is mostly unavoidable. (I don't like the cut-off of a noise gate for the kind of songs this pedal is for. I like the noise gate on the Tone Tattoo) If you are searching for a great overdrive-distortion combo pedal, this is the one to get.
