Blues Backing Tracks

Our featured gear this week is the JHS Bonsai. The Bonsai utilizes a simple rotary knob to switch through nine classic, vintage, rare, or hard to find variations of the Screamer. It's important to know that the Bonsai is not a "box of mods," it is exact replications of these nine units all housed in one box! When you choose a mode on the Bonsai rotary, you are actually activating components specific to each mode and playing the unit along with all the quirks, drift, vintage mojo, and individuality that a vintage pedal has.

If you purchase the
Bonsai from, we receive a small portion of the purchase, which helps keep this site running. And it doesn't cost you any extra. :)
