The Synthrotek Mean Screamer Overdrive Pedal is a tube screamer with a twist. The pedal uses a 4558 OP-AMP IC for a vintage boost.
The Mean Screamer features manual control over gain, tone, and level settings. There’s also a Brown Tone Mod, which adds some extra thickness to the signal, and a Hi Mod, which is essentially a high-end boost that is ideal for leads and solos.
