Josh From JHS Pedals, plus VCR Ryan Adams, Milkman & Kilt

Published on 5 May 2017

In this episode we are joined by Josh Scott, founder and owner of JHS Pedals from Kansas City, Missouri. Josh was on his way home after the 2017 Frankfurt Musikmesse and stopped off in the UK to visit friends and dealers, while celebrating his company’s 10th Anniversary.
Regular viewers of That Pedal Show will know that we hold JHS pedals in extremely high regard, so what better opportunity to get to know the man behind them a little better?
It’s quite a talky episode as we learn about Josh’s beginnings in electronics and how that eventually became a successful company. Amongst the chat we also get a chance to hear two of JHS’s key releases for 2017, the VCR Ryan Adams Signature and the Milkman Delay/Boost as well as checking out existing favourites the Colour Box and The Kilt.
