The implementation of a parametric equalizer as well as the footswitchable Clean / Overdrive mode bring another dimension of versatility to our Bluerider's proven design. See just a few examples of use below:
- as a classic overdrive pedal with great tone shaping capabilities
- as an adjustable boost pedal to set the frequency range you want your tube amp to overdrive the most
- as a standalone eq pedal (even for an acoustic guitar), etc.
True bypass On/Off Switching
Drive and Level Controls
Bass, Middle and Treble Controls:
The active 3-band tone control enables to dial a surprising variety
of cool sounds. Feel free to experiment.
Note: Since the default frequency response of the eq is virtually flat, you can get the classic "TS-correct" tone using a slight middle boost.
Lead / Crunch Switch:
Lead for classic singing tone with plenty of harmonic content;
Crunch for a cleaner sound with excellent dynamics.
Footswitchable Clean (eq only) / Overdrive Mode:
Switching the Overdrive mode off effectively bypasses the clipping circuit (disables the Drive knob and the Lead / Crunch switch) and turns the Parascreamer into a clean equalizer pedal.
