Video: JHS Launches the 3 Series with 7 Affordable, Essential Effects

Rich tone, boutique build-quality, but the simplicity—and price—of your favorite old standbys: The 3 Series by JHS aims to give you this and more.

Think of it at no frills, all thrills. With a minimalist design sense, these seven new pedals pack maximalist sound into an all-white chassis with just three knobs and one toggle switch. Each is available now for just $99 USD.
