MGR/Mark 's review" Marshall Jackhammer"

Marshall JH-1 The Jackhammer
A freind purchased from Michael's Music in Irving Texas for me.

Despite the fact that this is a tweakers pedal, it has numerous settings that produce solid Marshall bad a$$ sounds. They are warm even though this pedal has no tubes.

Perhaps that it doesn't have that much variation in sounds. Not enough to make a huge difference. I mean, it has an older Marshall crunch and a modern heavy sound, but no spectrum other than that.

Metal construction, not plastic. Very durable - gigged on and off for years with no problems or a backup. Very reliable.

This thing is awesome. I use it to get different types of distortion other than my Deville amp. Definitely recommended.

MGR/Adam's review" Marshall Jackhammer JH-1"

Marshall JH-1 The Jackhammer

Its has a great distortion and overdrive sound. it has the lil switch thing bettween each mode so u have to pedals in one. the gain is great, you can go from a smooth bluesy tone with it at 8 o'clockish to full metal style gain all the way up. the contor and ferquencey conttrols give u sooo many sounds. seruiouly about 30 decent different sounds

its a tad noisey and with a wah in front you seriously need to invest in a noise gate

you could throw it out of the window and it would work. the foot switch is a bit weak, you have to go easy on it, unlike boss

if you need any sort of distorted sound get this - cheap - sounds great - covers all styles

MGR/That kid with the guitar's review" Marshall Jackhammer JH-1"

Marshall JH-1 The Jackhammer
I got It as a Birthday present, but I know that it was acquired from one man band, in Banbury, England.It cost £45 which is about $78.

It has a really good heavy metal fell to it when you're using it. It also has some great looks compared to most effects pedals (Iuse this term loosely)

I dislike the way that you cannot control how heavy the effects are, as it is merely turned on with a button, meaning tedious time spent fiddling with gain. Also there are two different effects (overdrive and distortion), which could be considered a good point... exept the fact that they both sound exactly the same!

Extremely good. the look and wieght are just right for a marshall product, it will take any amount of bashing,and will last forever.

A good effects pedal for begginers,but if its rapid effects mellowing and strengthening again you want then I'd shop around for something else.

MGR/Derek Mok's review" Marshall JH-1 Jackhammer"

Marshall JH-1 The Jackhammer
Bought from Musician's Friend for $79.99 on special because I wanted to find a pedal that could create a good rhythm crunch. Also, wanted to try to recreate the "Zoom A1" lead sound without using the Zoom 505.

Small point, but this is the most eye-pleasing pedal I've ever seen: Golden chassis, mirror-smooth, die-cast control knobs, extremely rugged and very solid. The Overdrive sounds have soul, and I was able to realize my objective of using only one distortion pedal to get the sounds I need.

Partly due to my inexperience with pedals, I couldn't really get the kinds of tones I have in my head. But what I do get with this pedal ends up working for the guitar parts I'm recording.

Very high. I've read complaints about the on/off button on the Jackhammebeing flimsy, but I don't agree. I also don't use my pedals as often or as aggressively as most players; that could be the reason.

I love this pedal. Except my Fender pedal tuner and my trusty Zoom 505, there is no other pedal I use more.
