I’ve posted this in the past, but damn it, it’s a good deal, and it’s back around again. If you’ve been interested in the classic TS-808 Tube Screamer and just haven’t pulled the trigger on that pedal, this is a great alternative, and the price is going to be impossible to beat. The BBE Green Screamer lists at $149, and is usually available for $100, but is currently on sale for only $57.68 at Amazon.com and ships with FREE super saver shipping. Come on.. this is a hot deal!
Here is the official product description of the BBE Green Screamer:
The BBE Green Screamer effect pedal is a vintage overdrive capable of producing a dynamic range of smooth and warm overdrive tones associated with vintage tube amps. The overdrive pedal features rugged construction that can take a beating, thanks to its heavy-duty die-cast chassis. Fat knurled knobs let you dial in your ultimate tone with your toes. The status LED light lets you see the pedal is engaged even on a dimly lit stage. A non-skid pad on the bottom reduces movement, so you don’t have to chase your pedal across the floor. True hardwire bypass switching ensures it has no effect on your tone when its disengaged. The BBE overdrive pedal’s easy access battery compartment is included so you don’t expose your circuitry every time you need to change the battery.
The BBE Green Screamer pedal delivers a creamy, tube-like, dynamically responsive overdrive that won’t mask the tone of your guitar and amp. This pedal has three main controls: Gain, Tone, and Level, and a true hardware bypass switch, and can be powered by a 9V battery or AC adapter. Use a Green Screamer pedal as a stand-alone overdrive, adding overdrive to a single-channel amplifier. You can also use it as a solo booster also, not necessarily as a transparent solo booster, but a booster that has a midrange characteristic to boost solos or just to chunk up rhythms.
I found this good video by rockongoodpeople on what the BBE Green Screamer is all about:
Again, the BBE Green Screamer is on sale for only $57.68 at Amazon.com. At the time of me writing this post, there were 15 units in stock so you’ll want to jump on this if you’re interested. I’m assuming after this post, a few of these will fly off of the shelf. Remember, when the numbers get down low, the price may jump back to standard pricing.
