All-American: Explosively versatile pedal!
Based on the sought-after ProCo Rat distortion pedal from the 1970s, and favored by greats like Joe Perry, Nels Cline, and David Gilmour.
An unbelievable range of tones, from clean/grit all the way to compressed sustaining fuzz. Makes a 1x12 combo sound like you have a stack of cabs backstage.
JHS Pedals improved on the original by adding a sweep knob to control the feel of the gain, and a 3-way toggle switch for extra options:
- LED crunch
- More subtle silicon grit
- Raw open clipping
This is the genuine JHS All-American in kit form
- Original quality components used by JHS
- Genuine JHS circuit board
- Sturdy cast metal case, predrilled
- Step-by-step picture instructions from StewMac
If you can't buy it, build it!
JHS retired their hand-built All-American, and the only way to buy one has been to talk somebody into selling theirs (not likely). These great pedals need to be back in the hands of players, so StewMac partnered with JHS to create this classic reissue kit.
True bypass: when the All-American is switched off, it does not affect your signal chain.
This DIY pedal kit includes:
Metal pedal enclosure (4-13/16" x 2-5/8" x 1-3/8")
Op-amp and socket
LED + LED mounting bezel
DC power connector
Ribbon cable and wire
This pedal requires a standard 9V DC center-negative power supply (not included) and consumes less than 100mA. There's no battery option.
