JAM Pedals TPS Rattler & Factory Visit (Pedal Now SOLD OUT)
Published on 24 Jul 2019
This is a video about the That Pedal Show Limited Edition JAM Pedals Rattler… and a visit we made to JAM in Greece in July 2019.
Please note that the music in the video (not me and Dan playing guitar, the other stuff) is an improvised loop that Jannis made through his kerrayyyzeee pedalboard that you see in the video. You can find out more about Jannis here:
THE PEDALS ARE NOW SOLD OUT - THANK YOU TO OUR WONDERFUL PATRONS & APOLOGIES IF YOU MISSED ONE!
You can buy a standard Rattler (same circuit) from JAM direct - or from your local JAM Pedals dealer. Such as Andertons:
Back in March 2019 we took an overview of some Rat-style distortion pedals on That Pedal Show. See the video here:
We were both bowled over by the JAM Pedals Rattler. Far from a straight clone, it delivers anything from dynamic, on-the-edge grit through to full on shred-tastic distortion!
Thus, a conversation with the great people at JAM Pedals ensued and we're very proud that Jannis and the team agreed to make us 100 Limited Edition Rattler pedals especially for viewers of That Pedal Show.
As you will see in the video we made while visiting JAM Pedals, every aspect of production is done at their Athens workshop. From drilling cases to the high quality through-hole circuit assembly, flow soldering, artwork and finishing, their work is truly art in pedal making.
The 100 Limited Edition Rattlers – NOW SOLD OUT, SORRY
The circuit itself is based around the much-loved LM308 opamp with hard clipping diodes, and we've chosen a one-off Limited Edition 'Candy Placid Orange' finish.
Each of the 100 pedals is numbered and signed by JAM Pedals founder, Jannis Anastasakis. (Signature can be found inside).
They were only available from That Pedal Show Store. Please be aware that the sound and functionality is the same as the standard issue one, so don't be too sad that they sold out - the standard one sounds the same!

WHY DO WE DO THESE LIMITED RUN PEDALS?
• First and foremost because we love the pedals themselves and have GREAT respect and admiration for the people who make them.
• Second, because it generates income for us to help fund and run the show – this goes for our T-shirts and everything else in the TPS store. Nobody has to buy anything, ever, so please don't be offended that we raise money in this way.
That's it, thanks for reading.
