"This pedal has an overdrive knob, a tone knob, and a level knob. The drive knob controls the level of signal amplitude, the tone knob adjusts the amount of treble in the sound, and the level knob controls the output volume of the pedal. The pedal can be used on a solid-state amp to try and mimic the sound of a vintage tube amp, although many guitarists prefer to use it to push a tube amp's pre-amp into an overdriven state."

"The classic Tube Screamer sound includes a "mid-hump," which means that the circuit accentuates frequencies between the bass and treble ranges (mid-frequencies). Many guitarists prefer this sort of equalization, as it helps to keep their sound from getting lost in the overall mix of the band."

"When used with a tube amplifier the Tube Screamer increases the gain of the input signal overloading the preamp and further distorting the signal. If preamp gain is already turned up, the Tube Screamer will saturate the signal, creating a thickly overdriven tone."
