Pedal Pawn BluesPrint Dual Overdrive, inspired by Stevie Ray Vaughan Tube Screamer. This stompbox is a dual-channel drive pedal designed to capture the essence of SRV’s “juiciest mid-hump overdrive tone” while offering a fresh tonal perspective.
Crafted by Obsession
Pedal Pawn owner Chris King Robinson, a touring guitarist, embarked on a quest for the perfect dual overdrive. His journey led to the creation of the BluesPrint.
It is a faithful recreation of what is believed to be the Tube Screamer Stevie Ray Vaughan used for his legendary El Mocambo performance.
Dual Channels for Sonic Freedom
The BluesPrint boasts two independent channels, each with its own character and controlled by side-specific footswitches and Volume, Drive, and Tone knobs.
Side 1 – The SRV Vibe
Side 1 unlocks a fat, clear, and dynamic TS-style overdrive, Inspired by Stevie Ray Vaughan’s 1983 Tube Screamer, believed to be the one used in his legendary El Mocambo performance.
Robinson, a Tube Screamer connoisseur, was captivated by the clarity and dynamism of the ’83 unit owned by Stevie Ray Vaughan. Side 1 delivers “the juiciest, fat mid-hump overdrive tone ever,” inspired by SRV’s legendary Tube Screamer.
