JHS Pedals Angry Charlie V3 Overdrive Distortion Pedal
The Angry Charlie V3 is JHS’s latest version of their flagship pedal, emulating the classic loud sounds of the Marshall JCM800 amps with new additional Bass, Mids and Treble controls to replicate a Marshall-style tone stack, giving you more control over your sound and delivering high-gain British tones, bluesy breakups, thick mids, and a warm, full sounds
The JHS Angry Charlie V3 has five controls - Volume, Drive, Bass, Mids and Treble. The Volume simply controls the output volume, Drive lets you control how much overdrive enters the signal path, and the Bass, Mids, and Treble controls act as a cut/boost, so when they’re set at noon they have no effect, but by turning them clockwise they boost the bass, mid or treble frequency amounts, and anti-clockwise cuts those frequencies, so you can shape your tone accurately.
This is great for anyone wanting classic Marshall tones in a compact pedal, this would make a great addition to a pedalboard, and ideal for anyone who wants classic overdrive sounds without needing to buy a bulky amp.
The Angry Charlie has become a staple of the JHS line over the years, and it’s a force to be reckoned with in the high-gain pedal territory. Its ability to convincingly and accurately breathe JCM800 tones into any rig has made it a popular choice for guitarists of all genres. And unlike many other British amp-in-a-box pedals, the Angry Charlie V3 sports a 3-band tone stack, just like the Marshalls, helping nail those warm yet searing tones and boundless sustain. If you are a glutton for high-gain overdrive/distortion that has a British flavor, the Angry Charlie V3 will change your life. Well, your gear life.
FURIOUS-SOUNDING AMP IN A BOX
Turn the Drive control down, and you might be surprised how bluesy and vintage-like this pedal sounds. But through its different versions, our Angry Charlie distortion has always been one of the more aggressive British amp-in-a-box pedals out there. Either way, you’ll be injecting your amp with the grit and attitude of the UK amplifier heads that gave rock ‘n’ roll its teeth.

MARSHALL-STYLE TONE STACK
After a couple of extremely well-received versions of the Angry Charlie, we realized that to really nail the ultimate Marshall-style tone, we had to add Marshall-style control. So we gave you a finely tuned Marshall-style 3-band EQ. Enjoy!
