JHS Calhoun & Ruby Red Now Live

By Leslie Rich | August 31, 2016

Two new JHS offerings, Butch Walker’s signature, Ruby Red, and Mike Campbell’s, Calhoun, are on their way to Riff City Guitar. Taking pre-orders now, should be shipping this week!

Mike Campbell’s Calhoun signature pedal is a 2-in-1 Overdrive/Fuzz pedal.

Only 250 of these will be made using the hard to source germanium transistors.

The overdrive brings out a warm, vintage sounding amp-turned-way-up tone, with even harmonics and plenty of sag. The Fuzz side sounds like it might not get “No satisfaction”, but it’s actually a very satisfactory 60’s sounding buzz.

Butch Walker’s Ruby Red is another 2-in-1 pedal, with an overdrive side based on JHS’s Superbolt, which can deliver everything between a vintage crunchiness and a tighter, high gain drive. The right side of the pedal houses a two stage boost, that you can use to cleanly boost, or drive you in to lo-fi fuzzy territory.

It’s double, or nothing!

PS – It’s a good idea to hop on this one – We predict the Ruby Red selling out quick, but as for the Calhoun, once it’s gone, it’s gone.
