ToadWorks John Bull Jr




ToadWorks John Bull Jr is an overdrive effect pedal that emulates the classic overdrive that put Great Britain on the rock & roll map.

From the 60's to the 00's, England has produced some of the finest amplifiers on the planet. John Bull Jr brings that sound home at a price you can afford.

Just like it's big brother, John Bull Jr is on it's way to becoming a modern classic. If British overdrive is your cup of tea, John Bull Jr's gonna squeeze your lemon so hard it will hurt.


ToadWorks John Bull Jr is an op-amp based overdrive effect, featuring a unique combination of symetric and asymetric gain circuits. Increasing the Gain control actually changes the character of the overdrive, not just the amount of it.

The switch turns the effect on and off, the Gain knob controls the amount of overdrive present in the signal, and the Level knob controls the overall signal level.

John Bull Jr features a true-bypass circuit, so your bypassed tone stays as clear as an un-mudded lake, as clear as an azure sky in deepest summer - when it comes to tone preservation, you can rely on us! Each pedal is carefully manufactured by hand, using only the finest components.


Whatever your preferred flavor of british amp, John Bull Jr will get you within shouting distance. Low gain or high, John Bull does it all and then some. With John Bull Jr, ToadWorks has created something truly special - huge tone in a tiny box, at a price to fit any budget.

Like a pint in your favorite pub, sometimes it's smooth, and sometime it's not, but it's always tasty. From 60's pop to 80's rock to 00's thrash, John Bull bites like a bulldog on the old John Thomas. All the sounds in the empire are at your command - just plug it in, crank it up, and Bob's your uncle.

John Bull Jr is hand wired, by people, not machines. From our high quality 3PDT switches to the custom made enclosures and knobs, each component is the finest available, making ToadWorks Pedals the most well-built and reliable effect pedals in the world.
