Basically, the concept of Tube Screamer created as the overdrive effect where there are electronic components JRC4558D IC chips and OEC Mogami cable (AWG21), high-end quality cables from Japan. As a result the true bypass without cutting out the sound signal. While in the panel, there are three control knob, ie knob overdrive, tone and level. The role of the LED light to signal when the effect is being used. When lit, the light will be red. Sign, the drive is enabled. Button switch pedal seems sturdy and ready as the landing foot runway at any time. Overall, the look TS808HW vintage look, simple yet elegant.
