The Angry Charlie has become a staple of the JHS line over the years, and it’s a force to be reckoned with in the high-gain pedal territory. Its ability to convincingly and accurately breathe JCM800 tones into any rig has made it a popular choice for guitarists of all genres. And unlike many other British amp-in-a-box pedals, the Angry Charlie V3 sports a 3-band tone stack, just like the Marshalls, helping nail those warm yet searing tones and boundless sustain. If you are a glutton for high-gain overdrive/distortion that has a British flavor, the Angry Charlie V3 will change your life. Well, your gear life.

Furious-Sounding Amp in a Box
Turn the Drive control down, and you might be surprised how bluesy and vintage-like this pedal sounds. But through its different versions, our Angry Charlie distortion has always been one of the more aggressive British amp-in-a-box pedals out there. Either way, you’ll be injecting your amp with the grit and attitude of the UK amplifier heads that gave rock ‘n’ roll its teeth.
- Turns any amp into a screaming Marshall stack
- Go from bluesy Hendrix-like breakup to high-gain Brit tones with a twist of the Drive knob
- Drive and Volume control interact the same as a master volume amp head
- Back off your guitar’s volume to control your gain levels without losing clarity

Marshall-Style Tone Stack
After a couple of extremely well-received versions of the Angry Charlie, we realized that to really nail the ultimate Marshall-style tone, we had to add Marshall-style control. So we gave you a finely tuned Marshall-style 3-band EQ. Enjoy!
- Fine-tune your tone with controls for Bass, Middle, and Treble
- Active controls boost and cut their selected frequencies

  • Power requirement: 9V DC negative
  • Consumes less than 100mA
  • Dimensions: 2.6 x 4.8 x 1.6 in.
  • V1 = larger enclosure and 3 controls, no presence control
  • V2 = changed to current production size enclosure and look; presence control added
  • V3 = color changed to red, added 3-band tone stack—5 controls total

Great Distortion Pedal

Comments about JHS Pedals Angry Charlie Channel Drive JCM800 Tones Guitar Effects Pedal:

I run this through a clean amp and use it to switch back and forth between distortion and clean tones. It has tons of great sounding distortion. You can get classic rock distortion or super heavy distortion for metal with it. It's awesome! I had cheap distortion pedals years ago that didn't sound good, but this delivers great, high quality tone.

Comments about JHS Pedals Angry Charlie Channel Drive JCM800 Tones Guitar Effects Pedal:

Easily the BEST distortion pedal I have ever owned. I've had mine for a little over a week now and I couldn't be happier!

If I didn't know better, I'd swear there's a quartet of 12ax7 and el34 tubes in there, it sounds that good! Best of all, there is more than enough gain on tap if you want it. No need for a boost or overdrive to juice it for searing leads and legato runs. Notes will sustain forever if you want. The truth is, a real JCM800 does not have enough gain on tap to do this on it's own. They always require a overdrive pedal slamming it to get you there. That's what's so cool about the Angry Charlie!

The Angry Charlie also responds well to changes in your guitars volume knob and picking dynamics just like any good amp would. The EQ controls are active and it's next to impossible to to get a bad sound out of it.

Try one at your local dealer if you can. Otherwise, I would check out anyone of the numerous demo and review videos online. I can attest that it is easily one of the best pedal purchases I have ever made.
