Overview by GAK

The JHS Cheese Ball faithfully replicates the circuit of Lovetone’s long-discontinued Big Cheese pedal that was first introduced in 1995 and used by many popular musicians including Jimmy Page, The Edge, My Bloody Valentine, Radiohead and more.

The JHS Cheese Ball has Volume to just adjust the output volume, a sensitive Gain control, and a Tone control which can be adjusted from dark to bright. There’s another 4-way rotary knob that lets you choose your preferred fuzz tone - the ‘off’ position disengages the Tone knob, providing a bright, dirty fuzzy distortion. In position 1 you’ll get Big Muff style fuzz with scooped mids, position 2 boosts the mids and cuts through the mix, and position 3 delivers a heavily gated, gritty fuzz.

The JHS Cheese Ball is a versatile pedal, and a great way to get your hands on a classic, but rare circuit for a fraction of the price of the original Lovetone Big Cheese pedal. This will make a great addition to your pedalboard and could be the only fuzz pedal you need.

Overview by JHS Pedals

Long ago in a mysterious time that we call the 1990’s, a new pedal company was created in England. Its ideas were off the beaten path, and its sounds were otherworldly. Despite existing only a few short years, these creations became the things of legend and one product in particular cast the biggest shadow. With such artists as The Edge (U2), Jimmy Page, Radiohead, Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine), Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), Gary Moore, and many others using the out-of-production units, their Used market prices have begun to rise more and more, sometimes into the $800 range. The Cheese Ball is our faithful and extremely accurate recreation of the original circuit, it is a tribute to one of the most fascinating brands and circuits of all time!

The Cheese Ball has your standard Volume, Gain, and Tone knobs found on most distortion fuzz boxes, but comes with an extra mode selector knob that gives you four different overall tone and gain selections. In the “off” position, the Tone knob is disengaged, giving you a bright and trashy fuzz/distortion sound. In the “1” position you have a mid-scooped sound that will give you a Big Muff style buzz for a rounded sound reminiscent of fine mozzarella that sits just right on your pizza but doesn’t get in the way. The “2” position is a mid-boost sound that will cut through a mix like a hot knife through Velveeta. Finally, the “3” position gives you a biting, gated fuzz tone that, when cranked, spits, spats, and bites like gorgonzola naturale.

The JHS Cheese Ball is our homage to one of the most excellent fuzz/distortion pedals ever created. Rediscover the finest aged cheese in the pedal world.
