Excalibur Tone Screamer TS-4558 Overdrive
The quintessential overdrive pedal. Identical to the original circuit and featuring the 4558 IC chip, the TONE SCREAMER offers the smooth, natural overdrive of a full-up tube amplifier in a compact pedal. Incredibly dynamic, the TS 4558 respond precisely to playing nuances and allow your instrument's natural tone to shine through. The pedal's sound is different from most overdrive and distortion pedals as the waveform is compressed with little loss of the original signal, creating a full bluesy tone. The pedal can be used on a solid-state amp to try to mimic the sound of a vintage tube amp, although many guitarists prefer to use it to push a tube amp's preamp tubes into an overdriven state. The TS 4548 Tone Screamer sound includes a "mid-hump," which means that the circuit accentuates frequencies between the bass and treble ranges (mid-frequencies). The main component of the EXCALIBUR TONE-SCEAMER is the Op-Amp which gives the distortion is flavour. We believing the best Chip are the 4558. The 4558 chip is used throughout of the EXCALIBUR TS-4558.
