The TubeScreamer is one of the most used overdrive pedals since its introduction in the late ’70. It’s name has it’s origin in the fact that it emulates the sound produced by an overdriven tube amplifier, getting a warmer and softer distortion than with silicon transistors. It can be used in lots of different ways: as a booster in front of the amp to make it overdrive in a warm and natural way pushing it harder into saturation, as a distortion turning the gain on… No one like Stevie Ray Vaughan to give an idea of all the sound possibilities this pedal will give you!
Difficulty: Easy (2.5/5)
