New 3 Series is comprised of Chorus, Compressor, Delay, Distortion, Fuzz, Overdrive and Reverb. The range is complete enough to assemble your entire pedalboard at an economical price.

The name ‘3 Series’ is due to the fact that all pedals in the range have exactly the same box of three knobs. Of course, each one has different controls and dial functions in order to offer users a simple and easy experience. Each pedal also includes a switch that controls a specific effect for the respective layout.

Chorus is designed to deliver “classic chorus and modulation sounds”, with typical volume, frequency, and depth knobs. The Vibe selector allows the guitarist to remove the dry signal, leaving a simple true-tone vibrato sound.

The Distortion is “enormously versatile” promises JHS. Controls include volume, filter and distortion knobs, as well as a gain switch -gain- that lets you choose between a compressed or open tone. 


The Delay offers between 80 ms and 800 ms of delay time, for everything from slapbacks to long “pad echoes”. The controls are Mix, Time and Repeats, and a Type switch that allows you to choose between a lighter digital type delay and also a darker analog type delay.

The 3 Series Fuzz effect is an effect with a balanced tone between vintage and modern. In addition, it has a high sustain and a clear and defined articulation. With Volume, Bias and Fuzz knobs and a Fat selector that increases the bass.
