In advance of the upcoming Winter NAMM show, JHS have announced a collaboration with Paul Gilbert, the PG-14 Distortion pedal:
JHS Pedals is proud to release the Paul Gilbert signature distortion “PG-14!” This is a new and unique distortion pedal specifically designed to Paul’s specifications. At the heart of the circuit is a FET based distortion engine that emulates the touch, feel, and the response of a pushed tube amplifier.
This circuitry allows the player to have the dynamics and tone of loud stadium level amplifier at low/moderate volume levels.
ALL THE MIDS CONTROL!
A second unique and essential feature of the design is that an active mid-frequency preamp is located at the front of the FET distortion circuitry. This design feature gives the user a vast sweep of tonal possibilities with any amp or guitar combination.
The PG-14 is an end-all pedal for adding the ultimate dirt channel to your amplifier. A bonus feature is that it gives you all of Paul Gilbert’s talent, decades of experience, and countless years of practice! Just hit the footswitch!
Accompanying the announcement is one of the best product demos I’ve seen from a pedal company:
I love Paul’s enthusiasm and joy about playing the guitar. It’s infectious.
