Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Screamin' Blues Overdrive / Distortion is designed for guitarists who need a pedal that responds to playing dynamics. Blues players in particular will love how the Screamin' Blues gives them total control of their tone. Playing lightly gives you a mild overdrive, but dialing up the gain and digging in hard will make the Screamin' Blues sing with ultra-rich harmonics and sustain.

Features

  • Level controls distortion output level.
  • Low adjusts boost and cut of bass frequencies.
  • High adjusts boost and cut of upper harmonics.
  • Gain sets the maximum distortion amount when playing your hardest.
  • Dual Outputs. The Amp output is for connecting directly to a guitar amplifier. The Mixer output features Cabinet Emulation circuitry for connecting directly to a mixing board or recording device.

Buy it, you won't regret it.
Wun2bpm
The battery lasts fairly long and the battery life/on indicator light works well.
Jason A. Schmedes
Fares well against more popular brands that are a littl pricier.

Buy it, you won't regret it. This pedal is a smokin' deal and built very sturdy from what appears to be cast metal. I run energizer 9Vs in it and they last a long time. This pedal crushes the competition in its price range, at least up to $100 pedals. The little Screamin' Blues pedal adds a boatload of warmth to my solid state amp (Crate GFX-30) and has quiet operation. Output (LEVEL) is generous, so can be used effectively as a boost pedal. The EQ is limited in options (LOW/HIGH), but decent and quite sensitive. The GAIN on this little honey shames my Boss DS-1 and is much fuller and fatter with a tube like warmth to it. To me, the unit really shines at low to mid GAIN settings with it's tube-like sound qualities. Check out Gearmandude on youtube for his testing and positive review of it (you know, the guy that sounds EXACTLY like Jack Black, has tons of pedals and expensive guitars, but "isn't' Jack, yeah whatever).

Been playing since the 70s and needed a pedal on a budget to replace a flaky TS-7. Tried several, including OD-3, BD-2, SD-1 & DN-2 through several Fender tube amps (I use a PRRI). This was the pedal I chose, and it gets used every gig.

DigiTech is a company that gets a lot of flak from guitar effects "elitists" for two primary reasons: (1) They are a mass-produced, "cheap" effects pedal manufacturer (similar to the criticisms of Boss; (2) They absorbed much of the catalog of the now-defunct DOD pedal company, which made a lot of inexpensive, yet often poor, pedals in terms of reliability and tone. I am increasingly of the opinion that these criticisms are no longer fair. While the "digital" X-Series offered by DigiTech (Hot Rod, Tone Driver, Distortion Factory, etc) is somewhat of a mixed bag, DigiTech does offer a number of excellent analog pedals, such as the Hot Head, Bad Monkey, and Screamin' Blues, which are basically modified versions of the Boss DS-1, Ibanez TS-9, and Boss BD-2, respectively.

So why consider a Screamin' Blues instead of the Boss BD-2 Blues Driver? First, it's cheaper. Most of the DigiTech pedals can be had for $50 or less new, or often in the $20-$40 range used, which is about as good of a price as you could expect. Second, it actually offers two features that the BD-2 does not have: a split mixer/amp output jack, and a two-band tone control that allows you to dial up (or down) the bass.

The latter of these "improvements" is critical to the success of the pedal. Both the Blues Driver and Screamin' Blues start from a Tubescreamer platform, but offer additional gain and an overall brighter sound. The Screamin' Blues can actually become fairly raucous if you turn up the gain, much more so than a Tubescreamer. In my opinion, this pedal has more output than a Tubescreamer, and therefore, would work better as a booster for amps or other pedals. High notes really sing on this pedal, and there's even enough gain to do blues and rock rhythm parts without adding other effects.
