"I like the Waterfall pedal and use it a lot now. It does what my old chorus did and some cool new stuff that I've never heard before !"

"I am in LOVE with this pedal !
I used it every night of my last tour. This pedal is so musical and brings a character out of the amp that is so reminiscent of what my favorite old tweed amps have, plus the clarity and definition of a modern sound. What really blows my mind is how the TubeDreamer+ catches every nuance, every dynamic modulation or tonal shift, its like the ultimate sidekick !"

"I've been enjoying these pedals so much !"

"The Delay Llama+...great! So cool to actually have a "real" analog delay...where it does some more unexpected..out of control things....This is cool !"

"The Wahcko+ is fantastic! Now I finally have a great wah-wah pedal !"

"I'm back on tour now and have also the TubeDreamer58 with me in my pedalboard."

"All this stuff is great! thank you so much ! "

Nels Cline was shocked that he liked the Waterfall ! He hates Chorus pedals and said that we should rename it ! "Don't call it a chorus ! "

"The Waterfall introduces itself as a chorus pedal but is much more than that. I use it for rotating speaker sounds as well as for amazingly wild, wobbly pitch-shifting effects that are like nothing else out there. Very special."

"Though still just bubbling under the large wave of boutique effects pedals, JAM pedals' work stands out ! I am particularly fond of The Rattler, as I have been on the prowl for toneful yet high-gain distortion. There are plenty of fuzzboxes out there these days (and JAM has some good ones, too) but few distortion boxes. The Rattler has that fat, creamy sound/sustain yet doesn't have to be turned up all the way step out when full-on raging is required !"

"For those analog delay hounds out there, I also have enjoyed the Delay Llama+ !"

"The people at JAM Pedals seem to be very seriously re-inventing and refining many "classic" effects pedal designs. I look forward to trying more of their boxes!"

"Jannis, 
 You've created a very special line of products here having only sampled a few of them I can say they are made with integrity and deliver the full sonic spectrum. The Waterfall is a spot on chorus and vibrato not unlike that special sound you can only get from a Roland JC-120. The Delay Llama with it's infinite hold gives you just that, limitless possibilities and when paired with the the expression pedal you can really create some atmospheric sonics. Keep doing what you are doing Jannis.
Sincerely, 

Daniel Lanois"

"JAM pedals are of the highest quality in sound, construction and aesthetics. Personally I am taken with the beauty of the Delay Llama Supreme pedal, it has gorgeous tones and goes further than most every other delay pedal out there. Highly recommended."

"The TubeDreamer88 can give any amp a warm tube-like sound. It has many different options for tones, including classic and modern gain."

"The Delay Llama+ is a little unit with a clarity that competes with larger, modern digital rack delays, yet never losing the organic quality one finds in a great footpedal."

"As someone who likes a simple pedal that does one thing great instead of a dozen things poorly, I love the Boomster. One knob and one knob only! This pedal works great to beef up my signal with a very clean and full-sounding boost. Lately I’m finding it especially effective with my acoustic guitars, but it’s equally great when I’m rocking electric and want more gain without adding a layer of fuzz. Boomster makes my sound loud and clear!"

"I’m not someone who has ever used or enjoyed a chorus pedal, but I was looking for something that simulated the sound of a Leslie rotary cabinet. The Waterfall fit the bill perfectly and gave me an approximation of that tremolo/rotary effect and more - a unique sounding effect unlike any other pedal I’ve heard! This pedal is great for lead guitar work, to add a far-out color to the sound. I’ve come to rely on it for use with my electric band but it's also found it great in the studio for situations where I want something a bit out of the ordinary…  As with all of JAM’s pedals, the build quality is exceptional and the sound is great! "

"I love JAM pedals and they remain among my favorites -ever."

"I quickly dialed up a Rockabilly slap back that sounded very organic - very similar like my old tape Echoplex (without the squeaking analog tape!) . Usually getting a slap back echo is tricky, especially on my Line 6, but because of the 3 knob design, I quickly got the setting. And it's the best I've ever heard. I proceeded to getting some deep space sounds easily too. My girlfriend can borrow my Line 6, I'm converting to Delay Llama ! "

"The Fuzz Phrase has been with me on the road since I got it and I use it every night. It always sounds fantastic and is the epitome of what a fuzz should sound like. So many fuzz pedals don't seem to give you a tangible boost. You hit them and the sound just seems impossible to tame. The Fuzz Phrase is a no brainer. You hit it and it boosts your signal with a glorious fuzz onslaught !"

"I have only used chorus effects in the past to replicate a leslie. The Waterfall chorus is a textural dynamo. I use it to create moist soundscapes that warble and flow at the same time. You step on it and the 'wow' factor is engaged."

"I got the multi-pedal of DOOM and have been using it non stop. I love it! Thank you so much!"

"Big Chill is my favorite tremolo, modern and classic at the same time"

"The Boomster is a very simple pedal (one knob only), but it sounds really good and do its job in a way I like !"

"The WaterFall is a combination chorus and vibrato, and I combine both effects to get this kind of weird but pleasant slight out-of-tuneness !"

"The TubeDreamer+ produces a very smooth distortion that sounds like an extension of what I am already playing."

"The quality of the delays in Delay Llama+ are beatiful and warm !"

"The WaterFall may appear to be a standard box, but its audio quality is clearly exceptional in the field. Jannis is attentive to circuit design and is continually upgrading. As well, he does serious custom work. My verdict ? A major recommendation. A.Jackson"

"Always musical, JAM pedals are making some of the greatest sounding boutique pedals out there.  Not flashy - just great tone !"
 
"From subtle to extreme, Waterfall is a fantastic and useful pedal !  The best chorus sound I've ever found !"
 
"Boomster is a great sounding clean boost, alone or in combination.  What more do you need ?"
 
"Rooster is an extremely musical treble boost with a vintage feel !  Great shimmer, never harsh !"

"The Dyna-ssor is excellent, I got rid of all my other 3080 compressors and I'll tour with it !"

"the Chill is a neat little pedal, a clear, quiet, old-fashioned sound with control over the overall level. JAM pedals did a good job !"

"Around 1980 many of us got into bucket brigade delays, little analog echo boxes. They were a lot less trouble than tape and disc echos. I loved them and the sound imprinted in my mind. Then digital arrived, and as we played with the magical bells and whistles, we slowly noticed that it didn't always feel right. In 2010 I plugged into the bucket brigade Delay Llama and thirty years fell away. I'm home. It feels good."

"The Rattler+ works for me as a simple transparent preamp with a tone control, and a huskier voice if I dig my nails in. Red Muck with minimum gain thickens like a fat humbucker pushing a small tube amp a little too hard, and the TubeDreamer72 is a shouting pedal."

"JAM pedals are exceptionally warm, responsive, and musical."

"The Waterfall is the best sounding chorus pedal I have heard."

"Playing the Rooster through a good overdriven tube amp evokes some of my favorite classic tones and you get a great variety of sounds by manipulating your guitar volume."

"I love the unique warmth and complex harmonics of the Fuzz Phrase. It makes even a small combo amp sound huge ! I compared it to my other fuzzes and it is by far the best sounding germanium fuzz in my house so it is going on my pedal board immediately."

“The Delay Llama Supreme creates a lush sound that can either be very dramatic or with the blend knob lower, so subtle that you can leave it switched on throughout your whole performance. The modulation and the tap switch help to integrate the repeats into your music.
It’s a warm blanket of goodness that you can use freely without destroying the basic integrity of your sound.”
