JHS Little Black Amp Box

Taming a screaming-loud tube amp doesn’t always require bulky and expensive load boxes and attenuators. If your amp has a series effects loop, the JHS Pedals Little Black Amp Box takes care of the job while being able to fit into the palm of your hand. Simply run it through your amp’s effects loop and control the amount of signal you send to your amplifier’s power section. You’ll love the way the Little Black Amp Box lets you really push the front end of your amp for the natural feel and tone that you can’t get any other way. And your bandmates, sound engineer, parents, neighbors, significant other, and pets will love the way it can keep your volume down to bedroom levels.

Cranked amp tone at whisper volume

If your amp has a series effects loop, you should stop reading this and go buy a JHS Pedals Little Black Amp Box. All the roaring amp tones you need come with none of the ear-bleeding levels.

- Run it in your effects loop to turn down a turned-up amp
- Retain the response and tone of your amp’s sweet spot at lower levels
- High-grade components keep your tone clear and pure
- Passive design doesn’t require any power

Convenient low-profile design

A device such as the Little Black Amp Box is content to be a workhorse piece of gear that quietly does its job in the background. That’s why we designed this little guy to be compact, sturdy, and simple to integrate into your rig.

- Small size is ideal for saving pedalboard space or even setting on top of your amp
- Can easily be mounted underneath your board
- Built rugged
- Black powder coating keeps the buffer hidden in the background


Attempting to place the Little Black Amp Box between the power section of your amplifier and your speakers will result in damage to your gear. Place it in a series effects loop only.

This pedal does not require power and it measures 3.6"x1.5"x1"

Perfect for apartment living

So I recently bought a Peavey 6505+ 120w amp head on a whim, and built a 112 cab because I like doing things myself. They both sound incredible with the gain cranked right up.

My only problem is I live in an apartment complex, with neighbours all around me. They weren't the biggest fans. Is it because I suck at guitar? Maybe. Is it because the amp is loud as hell? Most definitely.

In comes the Little Black Box to the save the day. This thing just goes right into the effects loop and all of a sudden, I can play at levels more than 1, achieving that beautiful high gain tone without the threatening letters and eviction notices.

This thing truly rocks for the price point. I couldn't say how it compares to a load box that is many times more expensive, but I honestly don't think I'd even bother now, personally. This does exactly what is described, and what I needed.

Perfect, just perfect.

Great Service

I'm very happy with my purchase from Deluxe Guitars, I put this little black amp box in my effects loop to tame the volume of my 40 watt amp. It works very well in this application, it's saved me buying a smaller amp for home use. I had to adjust my pedals coming in the font a bit but I can still get a cracking driven tone, now at low volume.
I'm in WA, delivery was great - I hope I get to visit this shop one day, thankyou.
