The JHS Kilt V2 is an "Expandora style dirt box" that delivers a huge range of different dirt tones. Built around a core op-amp-based drive circuit, the Kilt offers toggles for cut/flat EQ control, along with a G1 and G2 toggle that adjust resistance values in the clipping section to foster a wide range of different drive flavors. In effect, the Kilt is capable of delivering a massive range of different dirt sounds, from light overdrive to full-on fuzz. Compared the V1 of this pedal, the V2 offers a more compact enclosure and the ability to control the G2 toggle via an external JHS Red Remote.

    I owned V1 version of the Kilt and it was great. Here's some pros and cons: Pros: - Smaller than V1 - Great sound and less noise when you use Fuzzzzzz. - not as noise or popping when your press the footswitch. - Better Led light Cons: - Doesn't have a boost. Overall, it is great sounding over…

    This pedal can do just about anything you want! I purchased a Red Remote to easily switch between a punchy overdrive and a gnarly fuzz tone! Stacks well with other pedals and really let's loose on a great amp!

    I was really blow away by this pedal... I couldn't believe how good the fuzz and the overdrive sounded... I've never heard a pedal that could do both so good... I would recommend this pedal!!!
