JHS Pedals AT+ Andy Timmons Overdrive Distortion Pedal
The JHS Andy Timmons AT+ Pedal upgrades from the original 2016 version to include a new independent boost footswitch, with the same great tube amp tones and features as before.
The AT+ is based on the classic JHS Angry Charlie pedal, and JHS collaborated with Andy Timmons to add some new features as he required to create his signature pedal. Get the classic saturated sounds of British tube amps in a compact, portable pedal!
There are 5 control knobs - Volume simply controls the output volume, Drive controls the amount of drive that’s like a tube-amp cranked up, the EQ lets you brighten or darken the tone, Air is like the Presence control on an amp, and controls the upper mid-range voicing and high-end frequencies so you can make your tone brighter, and the new Boost control lets you adjust the volume of the Boost circuit. The Boost section is an independent single control boost that is engaged with the footswitch, great for letting your leads cut through the mix with Drive cranked up, and also works well with clean tones, providing a bit of extra crunch.
There’s also a wattage toggle switch between Volume and Drive that acts as a headroom modifier, emulating the sound of 25w, 50w and 100w amps. The 25w has a lower output and sounds more saturated and compressed, 50w sounds less compressed and more open, and 100w has more headroom and clarity with more volume. This is a great little feature as it lets you have more control over your sound, letting you dial-in a specific level of gain with the flick of a switch.
Powered by a 9v - 18v DC power supply (not included). It can be run at 18v for more headroom and greater dynamics
In 2016 we brought you the AT, Andy Timmons artist signature pedal and we’re really proud to bring you the next iteration of this phenomenal stomp box, The AT+.
The JHS Pedals AT is Andy Timmons signature overdrive pedal that gives Andy his unmistakable lead and rhythm tone. Upon purchasing a JHS Angry Charlie in 2013, Andy began using it as his primary tone and soon after got in touch with Josh Scott about modifying it for his needs. Through going back and forth and tailoring it to Andy’s tastes, the “@“ was born and eventually released into production in 2016. This pedal gives you all the soaring overdrive and distortion that you hear from Andy with plenty of options to craft your tone with your rig. So pay ATtention and we’ll see what makes the AT rock.
DOES THE AT+ SOUND THE SAME AS THE ORIGINAL AT?
Yes! The drive channel of the AT+ is identical to our original AT pedal. No changes were made whatsoever and the controls remain the same. They include Volume, EQ, Drive, Air, and a three-way toggle for 25-watt, 50-watt, or 100-watt modes. The Volume gives you plenty of headroom to play with, while the Drive control has a wide range from high gain blues to thunderous distortion. The tone controls work together to give you the ability to shape your tone and sit perfectly in a mix. The EQ works as a standard bright/dark tone control, while the Air control rolls in top end like a presence control so you can have just the right amount of brightness for articulation and clarity. The three-way toggle gives you the feel of different wattage amplifiers. The up position is the 25-watt setting with the most compression and saturation with the least amount of volume. The down position is the 50-watt setting for a good balance of compression and openness. The middle position is the 100-watt position for tons of volume and open crunch while being less focused.
TWO CHANNELS ARE BETTER THAN ONE!
New to the AT+ is an independent foot-switchable Boost…essentially creating a second channel and gain stage for the pedal. The boost side of the AT+ is a slightly dirty and overdriven pre-boost that allows you to hit the front end of the AT drive channel and achieve more saturation and definition for applications where you need more. Since the Boost is independent, it can be used alone to drive your amp or other drive pedals in conjunction with the AT+ drive channel.
THIS PEDAL REQUIRES STANDARD 9V DC NEGATIVE POWER, CONSUMES 15 MA, AND MEASURES 2.2"X4.8"X1.6".
YOU CAN SAFELY RUN “THE AT“ AT 18 OR 9 VOLTS
