The team's opinion: The Skreddy Screwdriver Deluxe is a saturation pedal halfway between overdrive and fuzz! Yes admit that it is intriguing not?
The subtlety of this pedal comes above all from its gain and pre-gain knobs! Thanks to these you will be able to make it violently saturate as if you were typing in a power amplifier. It is thanks to this that the pedal is able to go into the field of fuzz.
The sharpness knob counterbalances the fuzzy effect, which can tend to darken your guitar sound. Note, on simple microphones it's not so bad!
Otherwise, it is possible to use it in a much more classic way and enjoy a warm and very dynamic overdrive.
The Skreddy Screwdriver Deluxe in version 1 is a rather rare effect pedal on the second-hand market. Don't be fooled by its very average cosmetic condition, this pedal is perfectly functional. It is a very good alternative to the Big Joe Stompbox Classic.
