The Scream X3 was named after is triple function, meaning it can act as a super overdrive, fuzz or clean preamp boost pedal, all of each function is independently activated via switch.
It uses the jrc4558d chip, allowing it to produce very detailed mids that will make your guitar pop out on the stage or in a mix without any additional effort (think of Joel Hoekstra from Whitesnake). An essential tool for Blues and Pop Rock guitarists or to simply push your amp.
Just like our Hard Drive pedals, the Scream X3 also features two switches (drive/preamp & classic/fuzzy), making it an incredibly versatile device. The functions work collaboratively, generating 4 specific modes and distinct functions:
- 1) switch 1 (classic) + switch 2 (drive) = Tube screamer on steroids.
- 2) switch 1 (classic) + switch 2 (preamp) = Simulation of a preamp, which can be clean or crunch depending on how much gain is added. It serves as a boost in the set.
- 3) switch 1 (fuzzy) + switch 2 (drive) = Overdrive + a Fuzz diode clipping.
- 4) switch 1 (fuzzy) + switch 2 (preamp) = Fuzz face tones
