We know what you're asking..... "Does the AT+ sound the same as the original AT?"
Yes! The drive channel of the AT+ is identical to that of the original AT pedal. No changes were made whatsoever and the controls remain the same. They include Volume, EQ, Drive, Air, and a three-way toggle for 25-watt, 50-watt, or 100-watt modes. The Volume gives you plenty of headroom to play with, while the Drive control has a wide range from high gain blues to thunderous distortion. The tone controls work together to give you the ability to shape your tone and sit perfectly in a mix. The EQ works as a standard bright/dark tone control, while the Air control rolls in top end like a presence control so you can have just the right amount of brightness for articulation and clarity. The three-way toggle gives you the feel of different wattage amplifiers. The up position is the 25-watt setting with the most compression and saturation with the least amount of volume. The down position is the 50-watt setting for a good balance of compression and openness. The middle position is the 100-watt position for tons of volume and open crunch while being less focused.
Two channels are better than one!
New to the JHS AT+ is an independent foot-switchable Boost...essentially creating a second channel and gain stage for the pedal. The boost side of the AT+ is a slightly dirty and overdriven pre-boost that allows you to hit the front end of the AT drive channel and achieve more saturation and definition for applications where you need more. Since the Boost is independent, it can be used alone to drive your amp or other drive pedals in conjunction with the AT+ drive channel.
The AT+, like most JHS pedals, requires standard 9V DC Negative power, consumes less than 100mA, and measures 2.2"x4.8"x1.6". You can also safely run “The AT“ at 18 or 9 volts.
