Incorporating a dual Op Amp and symmetrical diode clipping, this pedal became the legend that built the foundation of the overdrive pedal circuit. This pedal, which is called the “tube screamer”, is the all-time classic, or standard of overdrive pedals.
Nearly all effect builders have produced this circuit whether it is part of their collection or not.
Nevertheless, why do we seem fed up with the word, “TS”? It provides an excellent circuit and allows a wide range by adjusting a few variables. While its strong mid tone is obviously useful, too much exposure to it may bore users.
But were users sick of TS? The answer is NO. It is not true as far as original vintage TS pedals go. The great original quality has been and will be there unchanged.
