One of the 1970s most sought-after dirtboxes, the Ross Distortion is back in all its op-amp hard-clipping glory! This JHS-built pedal boasts the same amp-like feel and touch-sensitive dynamics of the original Ross Distortion, providing you with a seriously extensive range of tones. From raw rhythms that capture the essence of jagged tube breakup to saturated liquid-like leads, the Ross Distortion’s intuitive Level and Distort cover just about any dirty tone in the book. What makes this pedal so versatile? The key is the all-new 2-position voicing switch that provides access to the Distortion’s earliest germanium-equipped iteration and the later, smoother-sounding silicon version. You also get a host of modern functionality enhancements, including a soft-touch bypass, dramatically lowered noise floor, and an LED indicator. All in all, the Ross Distortion is faithful a sonic tribute to an all-time classic distortion, merging JHS’ modern pedal-building expertise with two of the most hard-hitting distortion voices of the vintage era.
