Vintage overdrive based on the original Ibanez 808. The legendary sound that shaped a generation !
Made with carbon comp resistors for a pure vintage sound !
Our TubeDreamers offer much more clarity than typical overdrive units. You can actually hear the individual notes of complex chords that would normally be buried !
Comes in 4 versions :
- TubeDreamer 58 : TD58 offers the classic Tubescreamer sound using the JRC4558 chip just like the original Tubescreamer. If you're after that classic Stevie Ray "howl", then this is the pedal for you !
- TubeDreamer 72 : Our most transparent overdrive, made for those that need to have the sound of their cranked tube amp, at a lower volume. Our "secret" chip offers a unique tone, less gain than the TD58, without the added midrange of a classic tubescreamer.
- TubeDreamer+ : TD72 plus a High Gain switch. Tailored for those that need just a touch more gain than they can get from a typical overdrive. With the HighGain switch you can boost your TubeDreamer sound and depending on your gain setting, you can either achieve a thicker, creamier overdrive sound, or touch the limits of a sweet, fat vintage distortion sound ! Our newest addition and improvement is an internal trimmer that regulates the output level of the high gain switch, so you can choose between a boosted signal, or maintaining the same volume when in high gain mode.
- TubeDreamer 88: Consists of the TD72, the TD58 and a High Gain toggle-switch in this case aiming the TD58. Made for those who need more than one different overdrive settings, as well as for those that prefer an original tubescreamer808, but with higher gain, still having the option of the more transparent TD72 sound.
