Tube Screamer -- INTERMEDIATE


Many think this is the #1 distortion there is.


VERIFIED


tonepad_tubescreamer.pdf 98.7 KB-- El Griton 2.2, Rev.3.Dec.26.2005


Tube Screamer US$ 11.00


Build either the TS-9 or the TS-808 used by Stevie Ray Vaughan, and about a bazillion other people.

This is quite likely the most misnamed pedal in the history of guitar effects. It really is more of an overdrive than a distortion, it has no tubes, and it doesn't scream. It sounds great feeding the input of a tube amp though.

Current draw ~4.8mA (no LED)

For offboard wiring instructions check the offboard wiring project page.
