Long ago in a mysterious time that we call the 1990's, a new pedal company
was created in England. Its ideas were off the beaten path, and its sounds
were otherworldly. Despite existing only a few short years, these creations
became the things of legend and one product in particular cast the biggest
shadow. With such artists as The Edge (U2), Jimmy Page, Radiohead, Kevin
Sheilds (My Bloody Valentine), Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), Gary Moore, and many
others using the out-of-production units, their Used market prices have
begun to rise more and more, sometimes into the $800 range. The Cheese Ball
is JHS's faithful and extremely accurate recreation of the original circuit,
it is a tribute to one of the most fascinating brands and circuits of all

The Cheese Ball has your standard Volume, Gain, and Tone knobs found on
most distortion fuzz boxes, but comes with an extra mode selector knob that
gives you four different overall tone and gain selections. In the “off”
position, the Tone knob is disengaged, giving you a bright and trashy
fuzz/distortion sound. In the “1” position you have a mid-scooped sound
that will give you a Big Muff style buzz for a rounded sound reminiscent of
fine mozzarella that sits just right on your pizza but doesn’t get in the
way. The “2” position is a mid-boost sound that will cut through a mix like
a hot knife through Velveeta. Finally, the “3” position gives you a biting,
gated fuzz tone that, when cranked, spits, spats, and bites like gorgonzola

The Cheese Ball runs on 9V DC negative center power

The JHS Cheese Ball is their homage to one of the most excellent
fuzz/distortion pedals ever created. Rediscover the finest aged cheese in
the pedal world.
