Synthrotek's original Mean Screamer Pedal goes way beyond a typical tube screamer clone with a couple of great mods. We are using an original 4558 OP-AMP IC to give it that beautiful classic boost.

  • The Brown tone mod gives this tube creamer clone EXTRA BEEF and Chunk!
  • High End Boost Mod - Adds extra high end that sticks out in solos, etc.
  • No Pop - a former version of the Mean Screamer had a loud pop when the foot switch was pressed; no longer!
  • Designed to fit perfectly in an included pre-drilled 1590B case
  • All onboard components allow you to build this WIRE FREE
  • Reverse polarity protection: if you plug in a center positive adapter, you won't fry the circuit
  • Comes with an unpainted aluminum case; pedal graphic not included
  • Takes a standard BOSS style 9V Center Negative AC Adapter with a 2.1mm barrel (not included)

 

Why have two different versions? The PCB-mount and wired versions of the kit use the same circuit and sound the same.  

The PCB-mount version:

  • takes less time for an experienced builder;
  • fits in a smaller case and takes up less room on a pedal board.
The wired version:
  • is easier to repair and solder and is recommended for new builders;
  • can be used in a custom case;
  • uses metal audio jacks instead of plastic.
