I like the videos, but I just don't like the pedals. Can't find one I really like the sound of and there's just something kitschy and cheap and tacky about them. It's as though a think-tank got together and said, "How do we make a 'boutique' brand and spread it far and wide?" I say this as someone who likes lots of pedals from bigger builders. I like EQD and Walrus stuff a lot. And no, I'm not being critical of JHS because of the controversy years ago. either. I'm criticizing the company for what I view as mediocre products and kitchy designs. I have a feeling I'm not alone in this perception of JHS. I think they've somehow managed to go mass-market whilst coasting on this "boutique" image. For sure I'm a pedal snob, but there's something just off-putting about JHS. Maybe I'm just being a jerk because I've had several cups of strong earl grey.
