Product Description

style: TS808

It's back - the incomparable overdrive pedal that's been described as the Holy Grail of Tube screamers. The TS808 reissue features the same famous standout square footswitch of the original and the even more famous warm tones of the JRC4558 chip used in most of the original TS808's. Ignore any over-the-counter lookalikes. If your tone is suffering from a lack of real warmth, the TS808 is the real, non-generic prescription.

This is one of the greatest tone pedals out there. It is made by Ibanez, and was invented by Maxon. I bought one about a year ago, and I ALWAYS have it turned on in my setup, no matter what I'm playing. It has a level control, tone control, and drive control. I find that you get better tones if the level and tone knobs always stay up. With the drive set to zero, you can get a very 70's tube-ey Hendrix sound. With the drive all the way up you can keep that creamy tone that is so pleasing to the ears, and have that edgy fuzz. You can play so many things on here. It's a reissue, but it is reissued just the the originals with an old power supply jack. It's the one eighth inch size, but it comes with a free adaptor for this. It is simple, and very sturdy.

The sum it up, it is an american classic, a must have. Stevie Ray Vaughn used it, and so many more american guitar icons. I live by this pedal.

Style Name: TS808
To start, as the full name of this pedal would indicate, this pedal is for tube amps. I can't comment on how it'll sound for a hybrid, and my experience is that it's definitely not for solid state. Distortion pedals go much better with solid state. Further, tube screamers aren't meant to take your tube amp from clean to high gain; again, that's what a distortion pedal will do. Tube screamers in general are designed to drive your tubes a little harder,and are most commonly used as a solo boost. Tube screamers are in the category of "overdrive" pedals, and like the name would indicate, they're meant add a little extra "over" an already "driven" amp, but in a more natural, smooth, organic way then a distortion pedal would.
HOWEVER, the Ibanez TS-9dx does more than your typical tube screamer. The extra knob that switches between ts9, +, hot, and turbo mode adds a whole lot of tone and use options. Let me expound:
I play hard rock and metal through a Bugera 1990 head (basically a Marshall JCM 900)and cab with celestion vintage 30 speakers. While that amp does have a fair amount of gain and bass on tap, it's not quite enough to accurately get more modern tones unaided. A standard Ibanez TS-9 or some other knock-off tube screamer will not be able to get an amp like mine into more modern, heavier tones, because standard tube screamers also slightly cut bass and add some mids, again, to help solos cut through the mix. But the extra knob on the ibanez ts9dx solves this problem. By switching to +, hot, or turbo mode, the pedal adds bass and a little extra gain incrementally. I like the "+" setting the best. So the way I use this pedal is that I'll set my amp for my standard crunchy rhythm tone with the gain on the amp already fairly high.

I have only used one of these with a hybrid tube amp and a solid state but I hear that it will work with either tube or solid state amplifiers. It really gives my amplifier a warm overdriven sound. This pedal can be used to boost your guitar sound during solos or certain guitar parts. This pedal has three preamp settings: Ts9, Hot, +, and Turbo. It's great for solos and warm blues or rock rhythm guitar. One nice thing about this is it responds well to how soft or hard you pluck the strings. For example: if you set on the "Turbo" setting and pick with your fingers it will clean up nicely. If you pluck hard it will make a smooth distorted sound. If you want a metal sound, then I recommend the Metal Zone by Boss/Roland. BOSS MT-2 Metal Zone Overdrive Distortion Pedal

Style Name: TS808DX
This review is for the TS-808DX (Deluxe Version)

The Ibanez TS-808DX (DX for Deluxe) is a faithful reincarnation of the original TS-808 Tube Screamer circuit made in the late 1970s & early 1980s, complete with the 4558 opamp. While the circuit is the same, the layout is slightly different which may account for some tonal difference, but most people will not notice any significant difference. While I have not myself ever played thru an original "holy grail" Tube Screamer from 1980, in the samples I've heard (and I've heard alot) the DX and original pedal are very similar. Both sound great, and honestly I don't think I have a preference for one over the other, other than I'm not willing to pay $1000 for a 30 year old piece of electronics. (That's crazy, and totally overrated). Certainly the TS-808DX is not a cheap pedal ($250) by any stretch of the imagination, but is the only TS-808 design that meets modern demands for tube screamers out-of-the-box (no mods needed). I'm an electrical engineer and not afraid to solder but if I have the option to have a factory-performed versus self-done, its better to avoid the hassle and let the factory do it. (I'm ready to pay extra money for that.) For the price of what custom mod shops do (same or more!), I'd recommend just going with this one to start! Worth noting: the big guys (Analogman, Keeley, etc) have mods for every Ibanez TS model ever produced, BUT they don't any options for this one (nothing to improve on!)

Here are some of the top features:
-Faithful original TS-808 circuit and JRC4558D opamp, with original controls
-True bypass (rather than original FET switch). This is alone is a $50 upgrade on boutique pedal modifiers.
