JHS Colour Box V2 Preamp Pedal

You say want a revolution, we-ell here's that guitar sound in a box. A Colourbox! This pedal is pretty special, being a drive/fuzz/mic preamp/character maker all in one.

Josh says: " In 2012, I had a crazy idea for a tone shaping device that had never been done before in the world of guitar pedals. I wanted to create an effects pedal that replicated the hard to achieve sounds of "direct-in" electric guitar recordings that I loved.  Bands like the Beatles, Spoon, Wilco, and Steely Dan had used this technique for years, but it was nearly impossible to recreate live.

I wanted this pedal to transform my guitar rig into the tonal equivalent of a Neve studio console, and that was no small task. After lots of trial and error, experimentation, and re-works, this concept evolved into something far beyond what we had imagined.

The Colour Box V2 has all the same functionality of the V1 with many new and improved additions like expanded EQ controls, a Hi/Lo switch for massive clean headroom, and the ability to pass phantom power to your condenser mics. 

The most significant improvements are:

  • Addition of an Output transformer
  • Safely Passes 48v Phantom Power
  • EQ Shift Knobs for precision EQ control
  • Hi/Lo Switch for ultra clean headroom
  • 100% available clean signal even on acoustic guitar
  • Silent switching, aka no "switch-pop"
  • Runs on standard 9V DC Neg power
