JD-1 JFET Drive

Want something a bit different to the diode clipping overdrives? The Mozztronics JD-1 JFET Drive is the answer. The JFET is a type of transistor that operates in a similar way to a vacuum tube.

The Mozztronics JD-1 JFET Drive operates in pure Class A, using three stages of JFET goodliness to accurately simulate an entire low wattage amp. There are no diodes in the audio signal path, and no diode clipping in this unit, just nice smooth JFET compressive dirt and overdrive.

GAIN controls the amount of gain from the first stage

TONE controls the amount of treble in the output, from treble cut to treble boost

VOLUME adjusts the overall volume out of the pedal.

This is great for crunch rhythm tones, and gives nice drive sounds when driven hard. This is great in combination with the TD-1 tube driver for a really smooth lead sound. We suggest using the JD-1 before the TD-1 Tube Driver or EX-1 Expandrive in the signal chain and set the JD-1 for crunch rhythm, and the TD-1 or EX-1 for lead, but there are no hard and fast rules. Experiment with the order of your effects to find what you like.

I especially like using a bit of treble boost, and setting the GAIN so when you play softly you get a nice clean jangly sound, but when you dig in a bit the compressive JFET dirt kicks in.

Mozztronics uses the industry standard Boss style 2.1mm centre negative 9V DC socket for this pedal.

Mozztronics want to make their contribution to a greener world by keeping 9V batteries out of landfill. For this reason Mozztronics pedals do NOT have space inside for a 9V battery. If you do not already have a suitable power supply such as a Boss wall-wart, One Spot, PP2 etc we can supply a Mozztronics PS-2 power supply with your order for an additional $26. Please include a note with your order if you wish to add a power supply.
