Are you on the search for scary good tone? Does your spine tingle at the thought of a tone that can cut through any mix like a butcher's knife? Do you have nightmares about muddy guitars that lack clarity and create phantom lead lines that no one can hear? Well, don't stand there frozen by fear, JHS Pedals have a pedal that gives you the tone that has long eluded your white knuckled grasp: the Haunting Mids. The Haunting Mids is a frightfully effective Sweepable-Mids EQ Preamp that can turn any amp or pedal into a ghastly monster. With it's ability to sweep mids and then boost or scoop them, you can find the tone that haunts your imagination.
The controls on the Haunting Mids are Volume, Mids, Sweep, and a Lo/Hi toggle. The Volume acts as a standard volume control to be able to set at unison or boost the signal. The Mids and Sweep controls work very closely together so you can find the perfect frequencies to boost or scoop mid frequencies. The Sweep knob controls what frequencies will be affected. Sweep knob to the left will cause low-mids to be affected, while Sweep knob to the right will cause hi-mids to be affected. The Lo/Hi toggle is like a "Q" function and controls how sharp the frequency peak is that you're affecting with the Mids knob.
This pedal is fantastic on an almost-breaking-up amp to send it into midrange tube driven heaven, or with an overly scooped distortion to give you the bite you need to cut through with every "djent," blues lick, rock riff, or lead line. It's also excellent for taming an overly mid-heavy amp or pedal rig. The Haunting Mids is not an overdrive pedal, it's a Mids pedal that when paired with an overdrive, will make you scream for more of this friendly ghost.
