JHS Pedals Moonshine Overdrive (http://goo.gl/xGqeDZ)

Chris demonstrates the new JHS Moonshine overdrive pedal on bass and gives you the full range of what this pedal can do to dirty up your bass tone! We highly recommend throwing this pedal on you guitar AND bass pedalboard.

From JHS Website:

Are you looking for an overdrive that is not transparent and adds its own character and attitude? The Moonshine is for you. Our Moonshine Overdrive is a highly unique and massively tweaked version of the most famous overdrive ever created and housed in a little green enclosure. Blues, rock, country, jazz, and even hardcore/metal players will find this is an indispensable tool for shaping and creating unique mid heavy tones for almost any need.

You'll immediately feel at home with our basic Volume, Tone, and Drive knobs, so tweak away! The simple 2-position "Proof" toggle gives you everything from low gain amp-like breakup with powerful colored boost settings to grinding, heavy overdrive that reaches to the very edge of cranked amp distortion.

With the toggle down, you'll find the highest gain settings, lots of saturation and sustain and the most mid-range goo available. In the up position are the more open and forceful crunchy tones that will make any amp beg for mercy. The up position also adds more overall volume and more headroom to those searching for cleaner applications. The tone control goes down as smooth as Grandpa's White Lightning, with none of the harsh ice-pick characteristics that many overdrives have in the brighter settings.

Just like the JHS Pedals Superbolt, the Moonshine uses an internal 9v to 18v charge pump that allows it to run on normal 9v but converting it internally to 18v for an enormous amount of headroom, added low-end and more overall punch.

We wouldn't be surprised if this is the most girthy, thick overdrive you have ever plugged into. If you're a fan of stacking overdrives, you'll love putting this in front of or behind your favorite drive, booster, or fuzz. The Moonshine delivers on any style amp, easily producing anything from SRV classic Stratocaster/Fender amp tones with class to huge "wall of rock" The Edge-style force through a Vox. On another note, you might find a few Dumble-esque lead settings that will have you feeling like you saved a cool $100,000 in search of that sacred tone. Last but not least, it kills on bass guitar, the reason it was originally designed.
