The Ultimate Comparison: Tube Screamer Pedals

The Ultimate Comparison: Tube Screamer Pedals

After Ibanez released the first Tube Screamer in the the late 1970s pretty much every other pedal brand went on to manufacture a copy of this famous green overdrive pedal, some with more options and features, others with less. From Stevie Ray Vaughan to John Mayer, the pedal quickly became a cult classic and has remained so to this day. We searched our inventory thoroughly for every Tube Scremer-like pedal and tested 22 different pedals using the same guitar loop. Which are the best? You decide!
