JHS takes on the Classic Marshall Bluesbreaker, addressing some of the original circuit volume’s classic issues by adding a JFET output buffer. It also features a high-cut switch to make this pedal more suitable for Strats and single coils.
This pedal is ideal for everyone who has built the KOT and would like to have a modern version.
The Morning glory ™ is still a flagship when talking about Josh Scott and JHS pedals ™. It’s his take on the classic Blues Breaker. A low/mid gain drive works equally well with single coils and humbuckers for everything from blues, country, and classic rock, and it’s almost impossible not to get a great tone out of it. With a barely open gain knob, your sound will be pretty close to what you used from your amp. From there, you dial in the gain till you get the number of overtones you desire but still open.
The pedal produces more treble the further you crank the gain. That’s where the high-cut toggle comes in handy, depending on your setup. I need to confess that for such a simple design is very well thought out, and I see why so many people asked for this one.
