The Jam Pedals Double Dreamer Overdrive houses the Greek company’s two overdrives: the Lucy Dreamer and the Tube Dreamer, but also incorporates an extra high gain circuit that can be triggered through the central footswitch, which can be assigned to either overdrive or both.
Internal dip switched allow you to implement routing variations between the internal circuits and the two outputs.

Jam Pedals Double Dreamer, Builder’s Notes
Creamy tones, detailed response and gain-wide articulation, times two: The Double Dreamer!
Housing our two single overdrive units the Tubedreamer and Lucydreamer under one roof, the Double Dreamer hosts 3 unique key features that offer maximum tone variety, practicality and functionality in the smallest footprint possible while remaining 100% handmade just like all of our designs!
— High-gain-stage footswitch
— 3-way-toggle switch that routes the high-gain-stage footswitch to work with either the Tubedreamer, the Lucydreamer or both
— Internal dip switches that reroute the IN and OUT jacks to work as Send-Returns for each Overdrive side, allowing you to individually engage each side with your switcher, or place them in different points in your signal chain. If you are using a stereo setup you can pair the TD side with one amp and the LD side with another for lush parallel overdrive sounds!
The Tubedreamer (Left Side) is our take on the legendary 808 Tubescreamer with a carefully tuned midrange frequency register delivering a warm and rich overdriven sound through any amp! A pivotal difference between the TD and other Tubescreamers, is that we chose to go with 3 diodes for asymmetrical clipping instead of symmetrical, enhancing the responsiveness of the pedal to fretting and picking nuances. The Tubedreamer employs the JRC4558D chip to deliver its classic sound, just like in the original, sought-after 808’s.
The Lucydreamer (Right Side) is a Dry / Wet overdrive which has less of a mid hump than our Tubedreamer, and allows for more low end to come through. It can track every little nuance of your playing with a wide gain-stage spectrum, ranging from highly dynamic tube- amp-like break-up, all the way to full-bodied high-gain saturation with the assistance of the high-gain-stage footswitch, while effortlessly maintaining chord-voicing clarity! The “secret” chip it bases its sound on, along with its different clipping implementation compared to the TD, allow the Lucydreamer to pair perfectly with the TD adding layers of harmonic content on tap!
Combine the two for new and exciting gain structures and assign the high-gain-stage footswitch to taste, making for up to six different gain-stages accessible in real time!
