Benrod Electro Classic Screamer







KirKill's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Benrod Electro Classic Screamer
TS9 boost pedal drive by Benrod with the famous original circuit JRC4558D
1 volume
1 gain
1 tone
True Bypass Hand made
9v battery or mains power supply


Fender 65 Deluxe Tele, Strat, Les Paul, SG, ES ... I tested the Mesa Rectifier and there is a disaster, high gain amps go your way


the TS9 is one of the boost drive, the most used and appreciated just that ... I used to drive with a very light Strat or Tele history to have this clean mix a little dirty, coupled with a good tube amp ... found that natural side as if we had pushed a little amp, plans emerged as Rolling Stone great especially with a TV, Brown Sugar, Honky tonk woman .... in short it is a killer, it gets very beautiful shade according pickups and volume ... otherwise I also used as my pedals for boost-type preamp ... Wampler kind Plexidrive Tweed or 57, then we add the body mix is ​​perfect, gaining attack and presence ... it is simply amazing, it leaves out many senior middle, the Tone knob is the centerpiece, the assay is very subtle depending on the desired result ... after boost in drive I also use the Gold Bender Benrod which is different again, more in the middle there ...


Having owned the Ibanez TS9 made in China, where there are no photos this Classic Screamer sounds ... circuit plays a lot and build quality also, I had the chance to have tested the Ibanez TS9 Hand wired by of around € 399 and after the test I was hot to take, but once the Screamer of Benrod between the feet, I found the same thing for cheaper (140 €), good economy ... Finally on the net there are sites that offer to do the upgrade with Chinese TS9 circuit JRC4558D ... I preferred to take the Classic Screamer for the same price and less hassle with the post ... no regrets and really not ready to part with one day

Benrod Electro Classic Screamer
You already know what you're talking there, right?
TS808 Overdrive boutique type (or TS9, I do not know exactly).
Beautiful assembly work, it feels quality.


Config. identical to the pedals that inspired it (above named).


This is where I spent some time undecided ...
Because he must admit, I bought it and told me it was worth the price probably without too much question.
But once connected, I've found a sound quite "stiff".
Note that I did not say bad, but not really ... sweet tone seemed to provide too much treble and all seemed to lack a bit of character.
That was before.
Since then, I emerged from the carton in the context of an exchange is possible and the reconnecting I took full face sound quality of this OD Made in France (yes, no offense to some, it's fun qd mm).
A few days later, a friend and excellent guitarist (pro) visits me and go for testing gear in order.
Well, his opinion on the most qu'enjoué Benrod has finally convinced me of the merits of my purchase.


So before I do not understand that just meets Classic Screamer guitar signal without coloring with an excess moved, I was skeptical.
I happily ended grasp what I took to be a lack of temperament was only comparable to the difference between a hamburger stuffed with sauce (ie of a lot of products on the market) and a gourmet dish finesse (ie of the Benrod CS).
In the end, I am very glad I kept it.

drive over MADE IN FRANCE


Ultra easy!


plain and simple a priori, but in the end and after operation: excellent!


I will not dwell on the purely technical aspect of this pedal is not the least of which has been discussed very explicitly on this forum.
I prefer to approach a description on the essential terms of sound sensations that gives this little gem "Made in France" I must admit I did not expect at all to find this pedal in a tone that seemed at once my well suited to the Blues.
What is the guitarist who seeks "sound" that will give new life to his guitar playing, which is not the guitarist who has tried all kinds of rack effects, stompboxes, amplifiers for end up each time with a good feeling just to make "not bad" but in fact translated exactly, "is good but it does not stand out in an exceptional view of all market products !
You will agree, we remain mostly with this thought "this is seen, seen, done and redone"! Clearly, it is above all the artistic talent of your game that you will have a very pleasant tone to exploit, but there will always be a little more than a physical standpoint that will make your sound will be ennobled at fair value, the guitar, amp and effect! The digital age is no exception to the rule of lures and technology we have at least learned one thing: It always comes back to guaranteed once thought obsolete! The current paradox is that today would Mountains m2 of lamps to give the current output of a digital machine, in contrast, requires mountains of algorithmic and ultra powerful processors to "look" without as the match, a digital sound to analog sound of a small effects pedal, and we are not speaking of lamps which provide a sound light years ahead of the digital realm! And so there are those like BENROD cultivate this philosophy and who think that there are still many worlds that have not been operated in the analog scale, and I must tell you how right they are!
These you design something based on a well-established technological culture but making the little extra that will ultimately challenge your esgourdes a rather peculiar way!
This pedal in a technological apparent simplicity hides a terrible sound efficiency, and equally remarkable for its simplicity of sound parameter changes made by the three knobs, tone and overdrive level! The true analog warmth is to go and I really appreciated the true bypass which distorts the sound of any guitar. In addition there have been no hum or buzz, a near-silence
something very valuable! The drive lets the guitar breathe and gives it that little extra that makes a big sound that will be able to deliver! it sounds, big sounds and affectionate especially creamy smoothness by Buesmens, which does not preclude use of other musical worlds in which it behaves with ease! The various possibilities are usable sounds with ease! Insert into or live in the amp but it sounds pleasantly different from both sides!
After trying a multitude of drive over recent years, I finally found the product that suits me! Tested on two amp, a vox ac30 and a Fender Deluxe, with four guitars:
fender stratocaster american, jazz Ibanez, Epiphone sheraton 2, lespaul ibanez 70's, with a slight preference for the grain type lespaul who reacted very well this pedal!
The strat is not left to be expressed through the classic screamer, it gives it a character very 'Rican "especially in the mid / high ..

Overall we can evoke a very good performance!
Advertising claims of the mark are really up to the product and the price is well below the quality provided when we know at what price to sell allegedly vintage pedals!
I must also say that I am proud to have bought the stuff of French music!
So I think if BENROD ventures into the design effects such as compressor, wah wah, and many others, this will no doubt through a real chalenge that will result (dare I gladly imagine) a great success!
