JHS Pedals The Crayon Direct-In Distortion Pedal
The controls are Master, Pre, Tilt, and Hi Pass. Master" is your classic volume control that controls the overall output. Pre" works as a drive or fuzz control like turning up the pre-volume on a preamp to send it in to overdrive. As you reach 75% and above, the fuzz will begin to gate out as you pick the strings harder when playing, it is very responsive to your input signal and touch. The Tilt" acts as an active tone control that is flat when the knob is at 50%. When turned to the left, the Tilt control boosts bass and simultaneously cuts treble. When turned to the right, it boosts treble and cuts bass. This allows for some very unique and usable adjustments to the overall feel of the Crayon. The Hi-Pass toggle switch lets you activate from two different frequencies located on the side of the pedal, 200Hz and 750Hz. These settings let only the high band frequencies above them pass, and this allows for some amazing tone shaping possibilities.
The Crayon excels at Direct-In fuzz tones, but it truly covers more ground than you would first imagine. From subtle tube-like overdrive to classic rock distortion and all the way to spitting fuzz, the Crayon is much more than a one-trick pony. The Crayon also cleans up with your guitar's volume better than any other drive we make. It is exceptional for the player who want to access multiple dirt tones with the controls of their guitar.
The Crayon may be the tone you've heard and always wanted, the tone that you never knew where to find. Add this Crayon to your palette of tones and color your own unique voice.
