Overview by GAK

The JHS Milkman was created in collaboration with Tim Marcus of Milkman Sound, providing a two-in-one slap back delay and boost pedal with all analogue circuitry, It has 5 control knobs along the top - Slap, which controls the delay time up to 250ms, Mix, which blends the wet/dry signals, Repeat which controls the length of the effect (up to 4.5 repetitions), EQ allows you to brighten or darken your tone to provide an authentic tape echo sound, so when it’s turned all the way up it delivers a classic tape delay machine break-up, and the Boost control lets you adjust the volume of the boost. There are also two separate footswitches - Slap on the left and Boost on the right which can be used separately or shared, which is a great feature to allow you to get a nice blend of delay and drive.

The JHS Milkman was designed specially to be used as a slapback, with a short time range and amount of repeats, and would make a great addition to your pedalboard and could be used as an ‘always-on’ pedal.

The JHS Pedals Milkman began with a conversation between Josh Scott and Tim Marcus of Milkman Sound. Tim wanted a pedal that could pair perfectly with the tremolo and reverb on his amps, something that country and Americana players could use as their only pedal if desired. Thus the Milkman was born, a perfect combo of slap delay and clean boost that will give you just what you need and not too much. So pour yourself a big glass and tip it back because the Milkman is about to deliver!


The Milkman has two fully independent effects with the boost on the right side and the slap delay on the left. The boost is a fully clean boost that is fantastic to push your amp into natural overdrive or leave on all the time as a preamp. The slap delay has controls for Slap, Mix, Repeat, and EQ. The Slap control adjusts the time of the delay from 0ms, which can create a doubled type effect, to 250ms to give you just enough echo to get some spacious sounds. The Mix control adjusts the volume of the echo. The Repeat control adjusts the number of repeats the delay will give you. The EQ control adjusts the brightness of the repeats to give you the ability to have a darker more ambient sound or a brighter, chirpier sound that cuts through the mix.


  • Two fully independent effects in one small footprint.

  • Boost allows you to have an always-on preamp or send your amp into natural breakup.

  • Slap delay to give you just the right amount of echo to give your tone the cream on top.

  • Perfect for slide, country, rockabilly, and Americana.
