JHS Pedals PG-14

Here’s a new signature distortion pedal by JHS just in time for NAMM 2020. The JHS Pedals PG-14 features a FET engine and an active mid-frequency preamp placed in front of it, offering a parametric mids section – just like in the studio consoles. The circuit was engineered in close collaboration with guitarist Paul Gilbert and is designed to emulate the touch, feel, and response of a pushed tube amplifier.

JHS Pedals is proud to release the Paul Gilbert signature distortion “PG-14!” This is a new and unique distortion pedal specifically designed to Paul’s specifications. At the heart of the circuit is a FET based distortion engine that emulates the touch, feel, and the response of a pushed tube amplifier.

This circuitry allows the player to have the dynamics and tone of loud stadium level amplifier at low/moderate volume levels.


A second unique and essential feature of the design is that an active mid-frequency preamp is located at the front of the FET distortion circuitry. This design feature gives the user a vast sweep of tonal possibilities with any amp or guitar combination.

The PG-14 is an end-all pedal for adding the ultimate dirt channel to your amplifier. A bonus feature is that it gives you all of Paul Gilbert’s talent, decades of experience, and countless years of practice!  Just hit the footswitch!
