Sometime in 2013, Andy Timmons purchased a JHS 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, JHS 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 low 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 low 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.
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 AT is your effect.
