A wonderful fuzz pedal to spice up your signal 

The JHS Supreme is a replica of Josh Scott’s original Univox Super Fuzz from 1972. (Black & Grey). These can sell for over $1000, so if you can find one, the JHS option is a terrific way to get those tones without having to remortgage.

The JHS legends of the fuzz range were designed to bring these unique, classic, rare fuzz circuit pedals to everyone. Most of us won’t ever have the chance to try the original pedals such as the “Super Fuzzes” and “Tone Benders, let alone own them. This pedal bridges that gap.


What you need to know about the JHS Supreme Pedal

This pedal is all black and looks really simple and portable. The JHS Supreme is an analog, true bypass pedal, weighs 0.38Kg, and has its jacks mounted at the top. It runs on a 9V voltage, as many other pedals do, and has four main control knobs – Tone, Mode, Volume, and Expand. 

As with most JHS takes on other pedals, this has some extra features; the “Tone” button on this pedal flattens out the Supreme’s attack. It does this by engaging a mid-cut and making it more submissive. Think of this as a preset scooped mid-EQ control. 

The “Mode” button activates a much more pronounced octave-up effect. It also produces a thicker mid-range and available volume/boost. Another advantage of the JHS Supreme is that it has an optimal build quality and is very reliable. This is not a boast because the original is approaching 50 years old and is still very functional.


Conclusion: Our review of this pedal. 

We think the JHS Supreme is a very efficient and durable pedal. It might not be great on controls, but it will definitely give you the worth of your money. The question is: how close is this fuzz pedal to the originals? 

Well, you have come to the right place; it’s not for us to tell you. You can find out yourself; we have multiple classic fuzzes on Tonepedia, so A/B them on our Demo Player and tell us what you think!
