The Visual Sound Jekyll & Hyde JH1 is a dual channel overdrive and distortion pedal. It has two channels that have separate controls, that makes for the ability to have two different distortion settings that you can switch back and forth from with a click of the button. It has a 1/4 inch input and output and is powered by the nine volt power supply that it comes with. It is not rackable as it a foot pedal.


The configuration of the pedal is pretty easy to follow. It has knobs for drive, tone, volume and EQ for the different channels and it has two foot switches to go between the channels and also has a switch for either sharp or blunt, which is compression. I don't have a manual for this pedal, so I don't know how well it is put together or if it is helpful or not when learning this pedal.


The sound quality of the Visual Sound Jekyll & Hyde JH1 overdrive pedal is top notch overall. It has the ability to provide a wide array of distortions and overdrives, almost all of which sound full and professional. I use this with electric guitar - a Gibson SG or a Fender Stratocaster into '76 Fender Twin Reveb and can get some great results. It is perfect for rhythm guitar tones, and also provides some good lead tones as well.


I've been using the Visual Sound Jekyll & Hyde JH1 pedal for about a year and have found it to be an above average distortion/overdrive pedal with a lot of versatility. While it is great in the studio or on the stage, it especially excels on the stage because of its ability to toggle between two different overdrive sounds. It isn't too expensive and is made well and will last a while if you don't do anything crazy with it. Its versatility and overall sound quality makes it worth price and worth a try.
