JHS Moonshine V2 Overdrive (4-Knob) *Free Shipping in the USA*
Are you looking for an overdrive that is not transparent and adds its
own character and attitude? The Moonshine V2 is for you. Our Moonshine
V2 overdrive is a highly unique and massively tweaked version of the
most famous overdrive ever created and housed in a little green
enclosure. Blues, rock, country, jazz, and even hardcore/metal players
will find this is an indispensable tool for shaping and creating unique
mid heavy tones for almost any need.
The Moonshine V2 is still the core tone of the version one and
retains the simple Volume, Tone, and Drive knobs. However on the
Moonshine V2 we added a new Clean knob to blend in any amount of clean
signal to your tone! The simple 2-position “Proof ” toggle gives you
everything from low gain amp-like breakup with powerful colored boost
settings to grinding, heavy overdrive that reaches to the very edge of
cranked amp distortion.
In the down position, you’ll find the highest gain settings, lots of
saturation and sustain and the most mid-range goo available. In the up
position are the more open and forceful crunchy tones that will make any
amp beg for mercy. The up position also adds more overall volume and
more headroom to those searching for cleaner applications.
The tone control goes down as smooth as Grandpa’s White Lightning,
with none of the harsh ice-pick characteristics that many overdrives
often have in the brighter settings.
Just like our SuperBolt pedal, the Moonshine uses an internal 9v to
18v charge pump that allows it to run on normal 9v but converting it
internally to 18v for an enormous amount of headroom, added low-end, and
more overall punch.
We wouldn’t be surprised if this is the most girthy, thick overdrive
you have ever plugged into. If you’re a fan of stacking overdrives,
you’ll love putting this in front of or behind your favorite drive,
booster, or fuzz. The Moonshine delivers on any style amp, easily
producing anything from SRV classic Stratocaster/ Fender amp tones with
class to huge“wall of rock” The Edge-style force through a Vox.
On another note, you might find a few Dumble-esque lead settings
that will have you feeling like you saved a cool $100,000 in search of
that sacred tone. Last but not least, it kills on bass guitar, the
reason it was originally designed.
This pedal requires standard 9V DC Negative power, consumes 30mA, and measures 2.2"x4.8"x1.6"
