The tap tempo feature remains on the 500 series, giving you the ability to control your time signature no matter how much modulation you apply. With a choice of sine, square and triangle waveforms, the Emperor 500 unit allows you to create virtually any Vibrato or Chorus effect you can imagine, and all with an easy way to record to your exact requirements.

Lunchbox Series

500 Series equipment is ideal for studios and recordings that take place in a compact environment. JHS have released some of their most popular, important pedals available onto a lunchbox format. This allows for more extensively detailed versions of each pedal to be released, making it easier to transfer the sound you have in mind to the sound recorded. The Lunchbox series can be used for guitar, vocals, drums and more to achieve a sound that truly belongs to you.

World Recognised Boutique Pedals

JHS Pedals has evolved from a one man, bedroom operation, to a world recognised boutique effects pedal company. All JHS pedals feature a simplistic design, with hand-wired components. Josh Scott, founder of JHS Pedals, began by modifying pedals he had on his personal board, years of touring and session work led Josh to realise exactly what it is that players want from their pedals which meant building them from the ground up to achieve perfection.

Hand Built to Perfection

JHS Pedals are hand-built in Kansas City USA, the company has a core value that JHS builders will never be replaced by robots. Every boutique JHS pedal is made and tested by a highly skilled pedal builder to ensure that every JHS pedal is crafted to perfection.
