JHS Sweet Tea V3 Dual Overdrive Pedal Review (July 2024)


Last updated on July 22, 2024 9:18 pm Details


In this review post we’re going to be discussing the JHS Sweet Tea V3 Overdrive & Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal, including an overview of its unique features.

Product Description

The Sweet Tea V3 is our “Everything Medium-to-High gain 2-in-1” and it covers all the bases from light breakup, blues, rock, heavy grind, and more.

The Sweet Tea V3 is for anyone who wants a versatile overdrive/distortion that covers all the bases you need plus more. You’ll find medium-to-high gain tones and the ability to stack for the perfect face-melting sounds.


The right side is our brand new Moonshine V2 which is a highly unique and massively tweaked version of the most famous overdrive ever created, housed in a little green enclosure. The Moonshine V2 has the classic mid-heavy tones that you’d expect but with more gain, volume, and tones available than you ever thought possible. The Moonshine V2 has the same core sound as the Moonshine Version 1 but we have added a new “Clean” knob to blend in the perfect amount of clean signal with your overdrive signal.


On the left side is our newest version of the Angry Charlie which is the Angry Charlie V3, one of our most popular pedals of the last few years. High gain JCM 800 type “Brown” sound tone that we believe is the most accurate Marshall tone ever put in a stompbox! It has Volume, Drive, and the full Bass, Mid, and Treble tone stack like you’d find on the amp. With the full tone stack and the amazingly accurate amp tones in this circuit, you’ll be begging for more!
