Sometime in 2013 Andy Timmons purchased an Angry Charlie from a guitar shop in Texas, and it became his main dirt channel soon after. Having a chat with him at Winter NAMM 2015 we set out to tweak it a bit to his personal tastes and needs so that it could fit even better into his live rig. The rest is history and the JHS Pedals “AT”, AKA “The @“, was born. Let’s take a look at its controls and function.
The AT has four knobs and a three position toggle switch. The “Volume” control controls the overall output level of the effect. The “EQ” control is a high pass filter that very naturally allows you to darken and brighten the overall tone of the pedal. The “Drive” control adjusts the amount of gain/distortion that you desire. The “Air” control is another high pass filter, but it is focused only on the high treble frequencies. This allows for “The AT“ to perform perfectly with virtually any amplifier as you can adjust in fine detail along with the corresponding “EQ” control.
The 3-Way toggle is called the “Headroom” toggle. In the down position you have what we refer to as the 50 watt mode. The middle position is 100 watt mode and the up position is the 25 watt mode. These replicate different wattages of a tube amplifier, so just like a real tube amp, the 100 watt is loudest, the 50 watt is in the middle and the 25 watt has less overall volume but more drive on tap. The middle 100 watt mode is clean, loud and full of power. With this mode and the drive knob under 50% you can achieve nice overdrive tones that set single coil pickups on fire with huge low-end and a powerful punch that the original Angry Charlie can’t achieve. The down position 50 watt mode gives you nice crunch/distortion that has a full frequency response. This mode is perfect for those looking for that classic British gain stage of the JCM800. The up position 25 watt mode reaches all the way into distortion territory and has rich harmonics, enhanced mid’s and more of a cutting presence. If you love gain, this is the mode for you.
This is an extremely versatile pedal that covers a large range of gain territory. If you need a single pedal that can achieve the saturated tones of a real British tube amplifier with a 4x12 cab, the Andy Timmons signature pedal is where it’s “AT.“
Oh yea, you can safely run “The AT“ at 18 or 9 volts.

What if I pre-ordered an item?
If a pre-ordered item arrives outside of the 45 day window from when you ordered it, you will have 7 days from the arrival date to send it back for store credit.
Why was my package refused?
There are a number of reasons your package could be refused by us, including:
I _really_ like it. The best testimony - I sat down to try it out for a few minutes, and ended up playing it for over an hour. :-) It's kind of dark for a distortion, but the 'Air' control brings some cut back in without being too sharp or harsh.
Note that I have probably more than a dozen dirt pedals, including a couple I built myself. Hopefully the 'honeymoon period' will last for a while - but my first impressions are excellent.
This is the only dirt pedal I use for most of my live gigs. Versatile as ****, but it lets me be me
Now will you please correct your description of the filters? They are LOW PASS, not "high pass."
This thing is amazing! Sounds great with any of my amps and guitars. Plays well with my rotary, delay and reverb pedals. But now I have to decide whether I take the Wampler Pinnacle Ltd. or Lovepedal Provalve V1 off my pedalboard. It's never easy. But then, I could get a bigger board...
The best Distortion pedal ever!!
