One Control BJF Series Persian Green Screamer Overdrive Pedal
A versatile 2-in-1 mini overdrive, featuring 'Vintage' & 'Modern' modes for mid-boosted & transparent gain tones!
One Control's Persian Green Screamer pedal is able to create contradicting sounds; a vintage 'Tube Screamer' tone, and a modern overdrive character — thanks to some "BJF magic" in the words of designer, Björn Juhl! It's essentially a versatile 2-in-1 mini stompbox, and you can easily switch between the 'Vintage' and 'Modern' modes via the accessible slider on the right hand side of the unit.
Emulates the beautiful distortion that's unique and similar to the green "808" pedal. It produces a creamy and warm tone, with a dynamic range that's not too broad yet the mid-range is emphasised — ideal for cutting through in a mix. The "TS" sound is sometimes criticised for being nasally, but One Control were able to attain a perfect balance through advanced circuitry design.
Provides a "transparent" overdrive, akin to a clean boost. It gives life to your guitar and amp sound without changing it drastically, making the Persian Green Screamer a fantastic "always-on" device. The overdrive can be used like a preamp or compressor as well, and you can alter the gain easily by adjusting the 'Volume' knob or by changing your picking strength — thanks to its wide range and touch sensitivity. In 'Modern' mode, you can tweak the 'Tone' control setting whereas in 'Vintage' mode, you cannot.
One Control 'BJF Series' Pedals
One Control are well-known for their pedal switchers and pedalboard management devices, but they also make their own effects — the BJF Series! These mini pedals are designed by Björn Juhl, a legend within the stompbox sphere who's highly regarded for his work with Mad Professor, Barefoot FX and his own company, BJFE. These stompboxes not only sound great, but save precious pedalboard real-estate too!
Björn Juhl on the Persian Green Screamer:
"The Persian Green Screamer aims to attain the ultimate tube screamer sound. I've combined a typical tube screamer circuit with one of my own designs. One Control believes that this effect has to have the ability to create a vintage original sound and yet have an authentic modern underlying tone. That’s where BJF circuitry comes into play."
"The Persian Green Screamer is a pedal that creates a vintage TS sound and a modern overdrive sound pedal at the same time. A switch has been added to the side of the body for exactly this reason. You can switch between two modes, 'Vintage' & 'Modern'. We felt like this was essential to satisfy the wants of players while encompassing these two contradicting elements. As soon as the final version of the Persian Green Screamer was ready, I invited professional guitarists to try it (I made sure to invite guitarists that are extremely picky). They were left speechless."
