Jam Pedals’ take on the classic midrange aggressive overdrive – they claim the Tubedreamer to be the best of the lot.
Now that takes some doing, but we’re impartial to the idea. The asymmetrical clipping is the crucial factor, allowing the pedal to get into the nitty gritty of your tone. You pick hard or soft and the Tubedreamer reacts in accordance.
As always with Jam pedals, the Tubedreamer both looks and sounds incredible, and is made using high quality electronic components.
Here's what Jam Pedals say about the Tubedreamer 58
Back when we originally introduced the Tubedreamer58 there weren’t as many 808 style pedals out there. We claimed then as we claim now; this is probably the best 808 style overdrive you can get your hands on!
With a carefully tuned, added midrange frequency register, the Tubedreamer delivers warm and rich overdriven sound through any amp.
A pivotal difference between the Tubedreamer and other Tubescreamers, is our choice to go with 3 diodes for asymmetrical clipping instead of symmetrical, enhancing the responsiveness of the pedal to fretting and picking nuances.
Made with carbon comp resistors, the Tubedreamer employs the legendary JRC4558D chip to deliver its classic sound, just like in the original, sought-after 808’s, and also introduces a wider gain range accessible by the high-gain-stage toggle-switch.
