Our all-rounder all-valve pedal preamp: ready to breathe new life into your guitar amp, pedalboard or recording rig V4 The Jack is a two-channel, all-valve pedal preamp that delivers genuine valve overdrive. Use it straight into the front of your amp or recording interface, or alternatively use it in conjunction with your amp's FX loop to bypass the front end of your existing amp entirely for a whole new sound experience. This is definitely no 'ordinary' overdrive pedal!
The Jack changed from the Countess in late 2020 to better represent the versatility of the amplifier, it’s still the same amplifier inside and the changes made are purely visual and in name.
AMP THROUGH MODE EXPLAINED Amp Through Mode utilises the effects loop of your guitar amp When the pedal is ON, you’re bypassing your amp’s front end When the pedal is OFF, you’re plugged into your amp as normal You’re adding two new ‘channels’ to your amp that are independent from your amp’s own front end. Imagine if you could feed the power section of a Fender Twin, for example, with the front end of a Countess, Sheriff or Kraken. That’s exactly what your doing: your single-channel workhorse becomes a three-channel monster.
No FX loop? Use Standalone Mode and go straight in the front.
