Gus G Demonstrates His BBE G Screamer™ Signature Overdrive
Gus G knows a thing or two about killer tone. After all, he's played the largest stages in the world with Ozzy Osbourne and his own band Firewind. That's why we were excited to find out Gus' choice of overdrive pedals was the legendary BBE Green Screamer. But Gus had ideas about how to make the Green Screamer even better, so we put him together with our own electronics mastermind Paul Gagon, and together they came up with the ultimate overdrive pedal. Here's the story in Gus' words:
"The Green Screamer was working great for me, but I had ideas about how to make it even better for my tone. Paul Gagon and I collaborated and we modified the input driver to the distortion circuit so that more lower-mid harmonics are focused where I want them. Now my new G Screamer pedal lets me drive even more harmonics, and they're focused right where I need them to be for a cleaner, tighter distortion. The G Screamer delivers explosive power with precision. It’s my new weapon. Want a killer screaming lead tone like mine? Step on a G Screamer!"
Gus has been working on his debut solo album, but took some time to personally demonstrate the G Screamer™. Check out the video below, and when you're ready for a screaming lead tone like Gus G's, stomp on a BBE G Screamer™!
