Mid Spirit – JHS Haunting Mids Clone


Super handy, versatile EQ with a clean boost.

The Mid Spirit is our take on the JHS Haunting Mids

A cool little EQ circuit that controls the mid frequencies and gives a 10dB clean boost whilst it's at it!

Boost or cut the mids for cutting through the mix or some classic fully scooped chugging.

This is a really versatile EQ, take the time to tune in your settings. The Hi/Lo switch toggles the frequency peak for wider/softer or steep/sharp.


  • Volume – Adjusts output volume
  • Mids – Cuts/boosts midrange frequencies
  • Sweep – Adjusts center frequency
  • Lo/Hi (Toggle) – Selects Hi or Lo resonance peak

Note: Remember to socket any IC's and transistors!
