JAM Pedals

JAM Pedals

Here is yet another gem we discovered while wandering around the NAMM show in 2018. Originally attracted by colorful artwork, the JAM Pedal brand was about to blow our minds. Started 10 years ago by mastermind Jannis Anastasakis, JAM Pedals has grown into a team of designers dead-set on changing the standard of a "good" stompbox. Their products are all hand-made and hand-painted in Athens, Greece making each pedal totally unique yet offering consistent performance. Their circuits are inspired by age-old effects, perfected with an eye toward the future and some help from rare NOS components. Even more impressive is their totally immersive Custom Shop. You can order any one of their pedals complete with point-to-point wiring and a personal paint job. Thinking of multiple pedals for your board? JAM will put together 2-15 pedals in a single housing, individually functional and true bypass. You can see an example of a sold multi-pedal on this page. Want it custom painted? Covered in Tweed? Sure they'll do that too.

We are very picky about guitar effects at UpFront Guitars mostly because we believe in hearing the true personality of one's instrument and all too often stomp boxes can mar the signal beyond recognition. JAM is one of the companies that understands this problem and we can hear it in their products. JAM Pedals are designed to enhance your sound, not change it. We are extremely proud to be a JAM dealer so don't hesitate to find out what they can do for you.

Introducing a special Custom Shop treat from the 2019 NAMM Show: The Transparent "Tradesman" Ripply Falls.

Not only is it a killer pedal but you can see all of the magic happening inside the pedal, including a few hardworking men taking care of the components. On your right, NOS bucket brigade chips make the Waterfall like a 3D effect for your tone and the vibrato/"wet" toggle switches create a palette of detuned possibilities unlike anything in the market. On your left is an analog 2-stage phaser with a subtle sweep that's transparent and almost vibe-like giving you a perfect platform for swirling or shuddering movement. Lastly, they stuck a "double time" switch in the center that revs up the speed of the Waterfall effect, creating a zany ring-mod sound! Every JAM pedal is hand-made and decorated in Athens, Greece and are favorites with some of the top names in the business.
