Conceived in the dark depths of Kirk Hammett’s mind and forged in the secret laboratories of KHDK, an iconic circuit has been perfected to achieve its full potential and create the ultimate tone, with all the control in your hands. The Ghoul Screamer is a multipurpose pedal, a true utility knife of overdrives, featuring three standard controls and five additional switches.
The dramatic versatility of the controls spans from a clean boost all the way to a massive overdrive. In addition to the three standard controls (drive, tone, volume) five switches have been added. This significantly enhances the sound palette and - together with carefully selected and tested parts - elevates the Ghoul Screamer to the highest class of stage and studio gear. Proudly built and hand-tested in Kentucky and complete with haunting artwork by San Francisco’s tattoo wizard Tim Lehi, the Ghoul Screamer has the makings of an icon. Made in the USA.
The Ghoul Screamer is a tube screamer on steroids.– Kirk Hammett
No.1 is the original KHDK Overdrive. Powered by our unique proprietary circuit, the No.1 was born from years of passion and sweat, experimenting and tweaking with the tones we heard, loved and set out to perfect.
As versatile as it is bold, the No.1 is designed in the spirit of an overdriven tube amp. It features two gain controls which cascade the gain stages for a rich and harmonic overdrive. Gain one controls the first gain stage from a pure clean boost to a naturally compressing overdrive. Gain two shares one knob with the Bass control. It cleverly controls the gain and the low end of the next gain stage, which adds rich harmonics, bottom end and natural tube-like saturation to your tone. It is designed as an active high-pass filter for the second gain stage and will allow you to set the amount of bottom end with precision.

The No. 2 is KHDK’s original Clean Boost, utilizing the strength of KHDK’s unique circuit. Providing a warm, tube-like boost, it was designed for those who appreciate a natural and subtle gain. Best used as a tool for shaping your tone on a quality all-tube amp, the No. 2 allows the organic and transparent EQ controls to fully develop your tone.
