Creamy, warm overdrive reminiscent of a small tube amp.

The Blues Shaman overdrive pedal emulates the tonal and dynamic range of a small Class A tube amp, with buttery warmth and soft clipping in its overdrive. Its Ascension footswitch delivers feisty gain boost, and its Tone control shapes highs while retaining beefy lows.

Further tone shaping comes by flipping the Stack/Combo switch, which emphasizes tones characteristic of compact, open-backed amps or large-volume closed-back speaker stacks.

Features

  • Warm, tube amp-like distortion
  • Ascension switch adds a fiery boost
  • Tone control shapes highs while retaining low end

Tap into the power of the Blues Shaman and experience its syrupy saturation. Order now.

    Better than a Klon Centaur

          Comments about Rivera Blues Shaman Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

          This pedal is able to generate moderate levels of natural, touch-sensitive, lush amp like sounding signing gain.

          It is surprisingly transparent and the signal doesn't turn to mush but remains chewy and crunchy.

          So far I like this as much as my silver Klon, and better than my Zen drive and Wamplers among others.

          Looking for "the drive", here it is !!

          Comments about Rivera Blues Shaman Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

          Seriously killer pedals in the Shaman series.I found the drive of drives. Drop the bucks and get one the blue or dual shaman, thank me later. I would shoot for the metal shaman but right now I am relaly happy with my high gain and this drive morphs into other pedals and a gained amp channel so good it just has me wearing my tubes out playing all the time. Dig it. Highest accolades and review to the Rivera Shaman pedals. I love the Blue Shaman, I would buy another one or probably the dual just to have more option settings.
          At first I was skeptical if a three knob OD could meet and satisfy my tone requirements. The addition of having the "combo" and "stack" EQ switch puts a delicious icing on this superior "cake" drive.The controls are voiced perfectly on this unit ranging in spectrum of clean to rich dirty drive and tone from bass without mud or losing definition to the brightest tonal SRV Strat ever. Kicking the EQ from "combo" to "stack" gives a really nice thick EQ effect that just sounds heavenly on a Strat. At low drive levels I defy a Klon to sound any better as you range through the drive and EQ spectrum on this drive you will easily hear you have something that is just far better than any TS clone or mod you have ever used. The box was much smaller than I expected and the tones far larger.I look forward to toning this into my rig all week, seriously great tones, feel and response.
          If there is a "top shelf" this unit is sitting on top of the pedals on the top shelf. Thick folded polished steel box, highest quality internals and components. Every thing you expect from Paul Rivera's Engineering. Color scheme is not painted but decal, good looking box, not sure why they did not opted for paint, maybe in time just having a mysterious silver box might make players wonder what that might be kicking all that tone.
          I am used to cheaper pedals, I realized after I got it that I was used to cheaper tones. This is worth more. It is easy twice the drive I have ever bought so I would say if anything it might me less than you should expect. I will eventually get another one to have a clean Klon like setting and a gained up monster. The dual shaman is probably pretty cool but I think I would rather have 2 of these Blue Shamans instead of the more gainy LA drive. At any rate a few bucks more, get the dual shaman.
