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.

Style Name: TS808
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: 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.

Style Name: TS808DX
I simply love the tone of the TS808. The crunchy and smooth OD sound just makes me happy. This pedal sounds identical to the TS808 reissue to me. The pedal is super high quality and i wouldn't question it if ibanez said it was made of the same stuff wolverine's claws are made of. It also looks awesome. i recently returned a TS808 reissue because it was defective (picked up radio stations whether on clean or dirty channels... and pretty regularly), so i am now able to compare the two.

if you are set on the ts808 tone like i was, and are comparing the TS808 reissue vs the TS808dx, see below for my assessment for why i chose the TS808dx:

1) True bypass
2) Switches are way easier to engage and feel more sturdy
3) LED lights are bright and easy to see (i thought it was difficult to see the LED light on the reissue)
4) No power adapter chord needed
5) As i found out while i played it: The boost on it is awesome! it adds a beautiful shimmer to it when engaged on the "post" setting and more growl when set on the "pre" setting. i'll probably always keep the boost on as it adds a lot to my tone (i use the xotic ep booster as my booster).
6) 9v and 18v option: After switching between 9v and 18v numerous times (i have the t-rex chameleon with the two power options), I was finally able to hear the difference between the two. imo, the 18v is a tad louder, more open, and adds a little more treble, while the 9v is more balanced and smooth. I know I'll probably be in the minority, but I like the sound of the 9v more at this time.

Have fun!

Style Name: TS808 pro
I've owned a couple Ibanez TS9s, a stock TS808 Reissue, an Analogman "True Vintage" modded TS808, and now the 35th Anniversary Edition. All are great, and all are Tubescreamers: strong midrange, nice soft clipping, plenty of output. For those wondering if there is any tonal difference between this 35th and the standard TS808 RI... they are different, but the differences are slight. While I haven't A/Bed the two (I no longer own the standard TS808 RI), I would say that the 35th Anniv has a touch more gain and a little bit more low end. Both are great!

This pedal is a must have for any guitar player. This by far is my favorite pedal on my board. It works well with all my other drive pedal and effects. It breaks up nice but still allows for each note to be heard very clear. I cannot say enough good things about this pedal. I will alway have one on my board.
