JHS Pedals Unveils the Emperor

JHS Pedals Unveils the Emperor

A true analog chorus and pitch vibrato with tap tempo, waveform selection, and rotary speaker simulation.

Kansas City, MO (October 2, 2014) -- JHS Pedals is proud to release a new pedal October 7th, 2014 and it will be available in quantity at authorized Dealers worldwide. The Emperor is a true analog chorus and pitch vibrato with tap tempo, waveform selection, rotary speaker simulation, true stereo output and more. The signal path is 100% analog. Starting with the coveted vintage Arion SCH-1 chorus topology, the Emperor's design and engineering expands further into new heights of what real bucket brigade tones (via a 3207 chipset) can offer. The end result allows you to have a host of vintage modulation tones at your disposal with the amenities and modern flair that JHS Pedals offers. From vintage Boss VB-2, CE-2, CE-1, as well as the legendary and rare SCH-1, the Emperor lets you explore true analog modulation at it’s best.
