JHS Morning Glory The JHS Pedals Morning Glory "Discreet" Overdrive is a different approach to your typical overdrive circuit. The Morning Glory prides itself on transparency, touch sensitivity, and versatility. This pedal shapes tone without burying your sound under a mound of dirt allowing your pickups to shine through. Complete with enough headroom to blow most other overdrives out of the water or to be used as a clean boost, the Morning Glory also brings double the amount of gain to the table. The tone control works as a high-frequency roll off balancing your sound with clarity and dynamics you may have thought were out of reach. Use the toggle switch to cut the high end down for some low gain growl, or leave it up for shimmering highs with classic chime. Whether you need something as simple as a clean boost or the bite of go to drive, the Morning Glory brings the response and tone to get you there.
There?s a lot of hype out there these days with overdrive pedals and the last thing we want to do is to add to the noise.
As you may already know, almost every boutique overdrive on the market is a modified Tubescreamer of some sort; we have decided to take a different approach.
The Morning Glory is a very transparent tone-shaping tool that is the result of several years of building, gigging, tweaking and improving on the original Marshal Bluesbreaker design. We improved vastly on the BB while maintaining what made it a great pedal in the first place. It now has around 4X more headroom, 2X the available gain, and a more useful tone control. The ?Bright Cut? toggle allows the perfect level of EQ for your rig.
You will notice immediately how touch sensitive and dynamic the feel of this pedal is. The frequencies are perfectly balanced and the tone knob reacts as a high frequency roll off. The drive allows you a huge range of tones from ?little wing-ish? chime to classic rock era bite. If you?re a Strat player, this pedal will bring you sounds that you may have thought impossible. If you like the Les Paul, get ready to discover a new pallet of sounds that you won?t be able to live without.
With enough clean headroom to be used as a boost as well as a hefty amount of drive, this may be your go-to pedal for good.
