Genuine Tube-like sound that makes it more than your average Tube Screamer!
More gain! That was once the overall goal. In case you are not playing through a real tube amp, cranked for overdrive, it is difficult to get genuine tube overdrive sound.
The original Tube Screamer pedals used an OP-AMP system, a basic circuitry that became popular for its perfect amp attributes. It had no distortion so it needed to be overdriven or distorted by re-shaping the signal until it distorts (diode-clipping). Clipping it a little bit offers you Overdrive. Clipping it a lot offers you Distortion.
But there is a better way!
Using an FET Transistor System, which already has overdrive and distortion capabilities is a better approach to deal with the genuine sound you get from an actual analog tube amp. An FET means that you can bring out the harmonic attributes, and break-up the distortion into a finer grit, the way a real tube does.
Now, your leads will sing richer and longer, and your rhythm will probably be more open and expressive than ever before. It all culminates into an overdrive that may be superbly dynamic, with crisp precise clarity that lets players cut through a dense mix, without losing fat mid-range.
