The Crimson is an exact replica of the Red Army Overdrive, allowing you to own a unique part of fuzz history.
The controls are Volume, Tone, and Distort. Volume sets the overall output level of the effect; turn it up and things get louder. Tone lets you sweep between bright and dark tones so that the Crimson works well with a range of different amplifiers and guitars. Distort is the distortion control; the more you turn it clockwise, the more fuzz you create. On the side you will see a “Mode” button that lets you access a never before heard “JHS Mode”. Push that button for a mid frequency boost that forces your sound through the mix.
If you love the tones of the Smashing Pumpkins, Wilco, Sonic Youth, David Gilmour, White Stripes and Dinosaur Jr, then this is the pedal for you.
