With a street price of just $35.99, the Sonicake Blue Skreamer is a no-brainer for electric guitarists in search of tonal options.
It’s a mini overdrive pedal with two voices: you surely guessed the first one (tube screamer), but you may not have guessed the second one, voiced after a Dumble Special Overdrive amp (here called “Loud” mode, as opposite to the “Warm” mode with the TS voicing).
Three knobs for Level, Drive, and Tone let you cook up a lot of sonic options, with the Dumble mode better versed for creamy and fatter licks and the TS mode excelling when the low end needs to be reigned in allowing the mids to shine.
Here’s our own video of it!
Sonicake Blue Skreamer, Builder’s Notes
The SONICAKE Blue Skreamer is a dual-mode, true-bypass, overdrive pedal, which combines 2 of the most iconic tones in the OD territory: TS and ODS.
When flipping the toggle to the up position, you get the LOUD mode, which is a Dumble-like overdrive sound, fatter, creamier tone with a very unique mid-range voicing, which makes it way much easier to cut through the mix when you are playing solo, even with the loudest drummer hammering the kit aside.
When flipping the toggle to the down position, you get the WARM mode, which is a Tube Screamer style overdrive tone, warm, natural sounding, with a little bit tighter low end, and a little less level. You know the sound, right? We don’t need to tell you more about it.
With all the tonal qualities aside, it has a special design of a LED indicated knobs showing the control of TONE and LEVEL, as well as the work state(on/off). Also it has a heavy duty, black, metal casing.
