Overall Review of the JHS Double Barrel and Sweet Tea
Both the pedals have an 808 circuit and we enjoy them both. But, the Double Barrel has that Morning Glory overdrive on the left hand side which we truly love. The bright cut switch is a nice feature as the drive brightens as you turn it up. The 808 side doesn't have as many options as something like the Earthquaker Palisades but the 3 clipping settings and the combination with the Morning Glory make it a very versatile overdrive. With the lush sound and overdrives that work well together, this is definitely our pick for a pedal.
On the flip side, the JHS Sweet Tea has the Angry Charlie overdrive, which may be just a little too much in the worship context. If you want something heavier, the Sweet Tea might be a better option for you. Special thanks to our friends at Rogue Guitar Shop for letting me have a go at these.
