Iconic For a Reason!
Decided to finally purchase this pedal after years of hearing about how much everyone loves it. I play an eight string through an Orange Micro Dark, so the lower register can get a bit muddy and dull. The tube screamer tightens that right up in a pinch: Drive at 0, level at 12 o'clock and tone set around 1 o'clock, combined with that mid hump boost, it really gives me a lot more clarity. Set the gain to zero on the amp and turn the drive up on the pedal and you've got a nice, natural crunch. Get a tube screamer, versatility is the game of this beast.
