These were reissued by AMPEG in the summer of 2005. Made in the USA just like the originals. We were skeptical so we bought one to test. It's on the left, with one of our original Scramblers on the right. The originals have gone for $1000 on ebay so we were really happy to get a chance at some reissues...
The New Scrambler Series Pedals are based on the original cosmetic design of the Ampeg Scrambler pedal from 1969. The SCP-OD is the reissue of the Original Scrambler. It features a distortion circuit that adds upper octave harmonic content, while blending a unique overdrive effect to the signal. These pedals feature die-cast housings and True Bypass circuitry. A Scrambler is not for smooth blues or the faint of heart - it's a NASTY sounding fuzz but you can tame them a little if needed.
