What are the exact effects of a tubescreamer. I have a vague idea but I can't tell if its more for OD, distortion, or a volume/tube boost. I don't seem to get why you would need/want one if your happy with your distortion and your tone...but then again thats why i'm confused......help

well if your happy with your distortion and tone theirs no point in changing that. The Tube screamer acts to boost and thicken the tone, i love mine

You run it over top of your distortion to boost and thicken your tone for solos and stuff. I also mine.

I sometimes use it by itself on my clean channel, and it just gives me that extra boost. It's great.
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
