JHS Pedals have announced an update to their Sweet Tea pedal:
The Sweet Tea V3 is JHS Pedals’ “Everything medium-to-high gain 2-in-1” pedal and it covers all the bases from light breakup, blues, rock, heavy grind and more.
The Sweet Tea V3 is for anyone who wants a versatile overdrive/distortion that covers all the bases you need plus more. You’ll find medium-to-high gain tones and the ability to stack for the perfect way to melt faces.
The right side is the brand new Moonshine V2 which is a unique and massively tweaked version of the most famous overdrive ever created housed in a little green enclosure. The Moonshine V2 has the classic mid-heavy tones that you’d expect but with more gain, volume, and tones available than you ever thought possible. The Moonshine V2 has the same core tone as the Moonshine Version 1 but we have added a new “Clean” knob to blend in the perfect amount of clean signal with your overdrive signal.
On the left side is the newest version of the Angry Charlie which is the Angry Charlie V3, one of JHS Pedals’ most popular pedals of the last few years. High gain JCM 800 type “Brown” sound tone that we believe is the most accurate Marshall tone ever put in a stomp box! It has volume, drive, and the full bass, mid, treble tone stack like you’d find on the amp. With the full tone stack and the amazingly accurate amp tones in this circuit you’ll be begging for more!
The Sweet Tea V3 features JHS Pedals’ classic order switching toggle so that you can choose which circuit is first in the chain for the perfect stacking tones you’ve been searching for.
With these tones combined or used separately, the Sweet Tea V3 is a gallon-and-a-half of overdrive that goes down easy on a summer night!
I’ve owned a Sweet Tea v2 for quite a while, and it’s one of my favorite Marshall-style overdrives. The Angry Charlie circuit can go from medium-to-high gain and it sounds good all the way along the spectrum. I suspect the new version will be even better since it has expanded tone shaping capabilities.
I also really like the JHS 808 circuit used in the previous version, so I’m curious how different the Moonshine circuit will sound in comparison. The “Clean” knob should also add some interesting new sounds.
It looks like the Sweet Tea v3 will start shipping in August with a retail price of $315.
