Not Just For The Blues!
Whilst the Tube Screamer has historically carved itself a pretty wide niche for blues players due to its duality as both a creamy amp-like overdrive and superbly enriching boost that can go from 'just a little bit of break-up', right up into 'the amp's gone crazy' levels of sizzle. These days it's equally at home on many modern metal players pedalboards.
Just chuck it into the front end of a chunky hi-gain amp, dial the gain a way back, push the level back up and listen. Use it right and find its sweet spot and it'll tighten and compress things up, add the perfect amount of grit and bite, and give you a monstrous rhythm tone to die for.
For years famed metal producers the world over have been using this trick to get the best out of their amp collections. Now the word's out it's time to chuck one on your board and make use of the awesome tones stored up and ready for release in this awesome pedal too.
