JHS Artificial Blonde

JHS Pedals has teamed up with Madison Cunningham and announced her new signature Artificial Blonde vibrato pedal. The pedal features two sets of Speed and Depth knobs, these can be toggled between via the pedal’s right footswitch. Then it has global Volume and EQ knobs, plus an on/off footswitch.

This is also a stereo effect and therefore it should give a unique 3D stereo soundscape. Though, you can also run it in mono if you prefer.

JHS Emperor

The effect was based on the JHS Emperor Chorus/Vibrato, which is now on V2 *. An effect that Cunnigham used as her signature tone. Josh Scott then built her a custom model with these two switchable settings.

    JHS pedals are too expensive. I can always find something that sounds better for less.

      I guess paying their staff a real wage is part of their cost. If musicians want high-quality builds, made in the USA by hand then it will no doubt push the prices up. Sounding better will no doubt be subjective, so that argument is always going to stand.

      Tell me you’re not familiar with JHS pedals without telling me you’re not familiar with JHS pedals. They have pedals at various price points including the 3 series which are all $99 which is astounding for made in the USA pedals.

    I’m not trying to save the US job market, I’m just looking for a pedal at a reasonable price that doesn’t sound boring.

      Jef says:

      I get that. I just sometimes think we take prices for granted with music equipment and don’t always factor in a living wage for the people that create them. I’m just as guilty of that, so not preaching, just trying to argue for both sides of the equation.

      Your friend Uli has lots of pedals made for people just like you.
