We had the chance to check out Jam Pedal’s new overdrive called Lucydreamer at our NAMM 2019 Stompbox Booth (see 60 Cycle Hum video at the bottom of this post).

The pedal, which is now shipping, updates the company’s Tubedreamer Plus and Tubedreamer 72 models, which have the same chip, but lack the Mix knob, which allows players to reintroduce some clean signal under the overdriven one to add extra body and dynamics.

Controls are pretty straightforward once you know what each letter stands for:

L = Level
M = Mix
T = Tone
G = Gain

The second footswitch activates a high-gain-stage whose level can be adjusted through an internal trimpot which doesn’t affect the dry signal’s level.

If you are wondering about the Lucydreamer’s voicing, here’s what the Greek builder has to say about it:

It is voiced to allow more low-end to come through while introducing a slight and carefully calibrated mid hump tube amps love so much.

Check out a bunch of videos below.

The Lucydreamer is a Dry / Wet overdrive created with today’s guitar masters’ needs and wants in mind.

It packs the following functions / features:

  • Dry / Wet Mix control
  • High-gain-stage footswitch which doesn’t affect the dry signal’s level
  • Internal trimmer to set the high-gain stage’s output level

Its overdrive circuit can track every little nuance of your playing with a wide gain-stage spectrum, ranging from highly dynamic tube-amp- like break-up, all the way to full- bodied high-gain saturation, while effortlessly maintaining chord- voicing clarity!

It is voiced to allow more low-end to come through while introducing a slight and carefully calibrated mid hump tube amps love so much.

Owing its clipping merits to our “secret” chip, the Lucydreamer fluently tackles all the traditional tasks of an overdrive pedal and at the same time invites you to discover new ways of expression through its clean signal blending which will also work wonders when paired with an already overdriven valve amp! Set the mix knob just right to introduce the desired amount of overdrive into your clean signal.

Widen your palette of sounds, minimize pedalboard real estate and elevate your tone with the Lucydreamer!
