This rare one-of-a-kind fuzz delivers on it's legend.

The JHS Crimson 1992 Russia fuzz guitar effects pedal is an exact replica of the Red Army Overdrive, allowing you to own a unique part of fuzz history. This the very first Russian-made Big Muff ever produced and possibly the rarest. It shares characteristics with the famous Sovtek* "Civil War" (late 1992) version, but it stands on its own. Warmer, clearer and more defined than any of the Soviet Big Muffs that followed, the Red Army offers a unique flavor of a very familiar effect.

The controls are Volume, Tone and Distort Volume sets the overall output level of the effect; turn it up and things get louder. Tone lets you sweep between bright and dark tones so that the Crimson works well with a range of different amplifiers and guitars. Distort is the distortion control; the more you turn it clockwise, the more fuzz you create. On the side, you will see a "Mode" button that lets you access a never before heard "JHS Mode." Push that button for a mid-frequency boost that forces your sound through the mix.

If you love the tones of the Smashing Pumpkins, Wilco, Sonic Youth, David Gilmour, The White Stripes and Dinosaur Jr., then this is the pedal for you.

Own a unique part of fuzz history and some killer tones. Order today.
