The JHS legends of fuzz range was designed to bring the unobtainium of pedals to everyone, classic rare fuzz circuits. Most of us won't every have the chance to try the original pedals such as the supa fuzz's and tone benders of the world let alone own them.
The JHS Supreme is a recreation of Josh Scotts own 1972 Univox Supa Fuzz (Black & Grey). These often sell for in excess of $1000 so the JHS option is a great way of getting those tones without remortgaging if you can even find one.
As with most JHS takes on others pedal this has some extra features, the “Tone” button engages a mid cut that flattens out the Supreme’s attack and makes it more submissive. Think of this as a preset scooped mid EQ control. The “Mode” button activates a much more pronounced octave up effect, thicker mid-range, and more available volume/boost. The other advantage here of course is the build quality and overall reliability, lets face it the original is approaching 50 years old.
The question you will have is how close is the Bender to the originals ... Well you came to the right place! It's not for us to tell you, we have multiple classic fuzzes on Tonepedia so A/B them here yourself and tell us what you think!
