BBE G Screamer Gus G Signature Overdrive Pedal
Special Order

Tight, Explosive Overdrive

The BBE G Screamer Gus G Signature Overdrive Guitar Pedal gives you Gus's scorching signature tone in a compact stompbox. Firewind's celebrated axeman worked closely with BBE's design mastermind Paul Gagon to improve upon BBE's legendary Green Screamer (Gus's previous pedal of choice), with distortion circuit input driver modifications that produce more harmonics, focused to deliver tight, explosive power. Use the G Screamer to drive your amp's tubes harder for thick, punishing tone that's anything but your old-school wall of distortion. If you prefer your overdrive complex and sophisticated, Sweetwater's got your pedal: the BBE G Screamer.

Love it

I am extremely pleased with this pedal. It is great and sounds killer. I use it with my mini jubilee amp and my stratocaster. I cranked the gain of this pedal up the whole way with my amps gain still running strong at about 3 o'clock, so independantly, it does not have EXTREME push (at least with my strat) but boosts my strat into the fully saturated zone when working In conjunction with the amp's gain. With the right setting, it gives me that hot and smooth michael angelo batio high midrange type tone that i absolutely adore and often seek. Unlike his tone, it is more organic. It's exactly what I wanted and i'd do it again in a heartbeat

Best Volume knob roll back ever

This is my first BBE pedal. Mine came in a large box that contained the power supply as well. Never happen before. The gain even a low point was a little much for me so I tried rolling the volume back. Wow. I was surprised, I have never had a pedal clean up so well. The volume on the level control is adequate and in conjunction with the tone control I get some good focused classic rock solos tones. This pedal stays on my board. Be aware though It is sensitive to input. I use it before a compressor and eq with my volume control it is good for all my sounds.
