JHS Alpine Reverb Pedal
In a world full of reverb pedals we are proud to offer up a highly tweak-able versatile inspiring and cost effective solution for any situation your gig might throw at you. The heart of the Alpine's design is the idea that you can have a reverb pedal that is straight forward easy to use but also extremely powerful in its functions all while still very approachable without requiring a degree in computer engineering to dial in a great sound.
Shift Knob & Footswitch
The Shift knob is possibly the most useful of them all as it basically allows two settings on the fly. When you engage the shift' footswitch on the right you also engage the Shift knob that is a second Reverb control. This lets you set the standard Reverb control to one setting and the Shift to another for on the fly adjustment between two preset sounds.
You will find The Alpine has two top-mounted 1/4 Input/Output jacks like most pedals. On the left side we also include a TRS EFX Loop jack just like what is found in the JHS Panther Cub Analog Delay. The EFX Loop allows you to insert any pedal or effect unit you want within the reverb signal itself for infinitely tweak-able sounds.
Using a TRS Splitter Cable you can insert your favorite octave pedal to create a Shimmer effect. Insert a delay for huge ambient pads or even an EQ for fine control of the frequencies and shape of the reverb effect. On your splitter cable the RING goes to the output/return of the effect you are using in the loop and the TIP goes to the input/send of that same effect. Inside the Alpine you will find a small switch that says (EFX LOOP) and two positions labeled (SHIFT ONLY) and (ALWAYS ON). All units are shipped with this dip-switch in the (SHIFT ONLY) position. When the switch is on Shift Only the EFX Loop only engages when you engage the Shift footswitch setting. This allows you to have your normal reverb setting and then hit the Shift Footswitch to activate your Shift knob setting and your EFX Loop at the same time for two very different sounds on the fly. If you want the EFX Loop to apply in both the normal Reverb and Shift settings simply flip the dip-swich to the (Always On) position and the EFX loop will always-be-on-all-the-time whenever the Alpine is turned on or the Shift is engaged.
Trails & Buffered Bypass
The Alpine uses a high quality buffered bypass that restores lost signal in your rig by correcting impedance and driving the load of your signal to your amp. Using buffered bypass also allows for Trails. Trails is the feature that lets the reverb signal to gradually trail off when (instead of cutting off abruptly) turning the pedal off.
After years of requests JHS Pedals finally caved and by caved they mean you can now sound like you are now playing your guitar in a cave with JHS Pedals style. The Alpine is what we believe to be the complete package in reverb. It does the simple as well as the complex and is easy to use. If you want a realistic and believable Spring reverb or even washed out ambient layers the Alpine does all of these tones and more.
This pedal requires standard 9V DC Negative power consumes about 100mA and measures 4.7x3.7x1.2
