Mad Hatter Stompboxes: Mad Screamer
This pedal is a fantastic clone of the historic TS808HM with a famous JRC4558D amp. This is very simple to use! The relationship quality/price is formidable, is worth very more than it costs. I highly recommend it.

Ease of Use: This pedal is a fantastic clone of the historic TS808HM with a famous JRC4558D amp. This is very simple to use! The pedal has three knobs: level, tone, drive... Moreover it has a Switch in order to pass from symmetrical clipping to asymmetrical clipping. It's no necessary a manual, it's used of instinct. // 10

Sound: The classical sound of the Tube Screamer TS808. With the Drive knob to 0 this pedal can be used as a booster. The Tone knob works a little like the Presence in a amplifier, if the Tone is to 0 position does not lose bass but it emphasizes the mid-bass. - symmetrical clipping --> Original sound of TS808 - asymmetrical clipping --> very creamy sound. The sound remains absolutely intelligible also regulating to the maximum level Drive, Level and Tone (also in chain with phase, flanger, chorus and delay). I use this Overdrive with a Fender DeVille 212 with Celestion V30... Incledible tube screamer. Perfect for rock (old and new) and blues. // 10

Reliability & Durability: The pedal is constructed in hardy metal, the beautiful design decal is protect from a layer of polishes and the circuit is protect from a diode in polarity case invert (it is a 9V like a Boss pedal). It is a boutique pedal very reliable... I have not never had problems. // 10

Overall Impression: The best tube Screamer that it has never had it's adapted to multiple musical styles (rock, post-rock, blues, shoegaze), is very easy to use. I use it in order to play in mine band post-rock/ambient/shoegaze, but also in order to play Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Malmsteen any more... The relationship quality/price is formidable, is worth very more than it costs. I highly recommend it. // 10
