    To correct some opinions ... One of the best "light" overdrive market

    Ibanez TS9B Tube Screamer BassPublished on 10/14/12 at 01:19
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Low analog overdrive type.
    We must refocus the usefulness of this pedal, the equivalent of the famous TS9 sister guitar, the goal is clearly to get that sound so characteristic of a tube amplifier whose gain is pushed to its limits. This it does very well.
    It can not be that, and nothing else. And it is clear that it was made for it.

    You want an overdrive that pulls the distortion: go your way.

    Specifications:

    Input Impedance: 500 Ohms
    Output Impedance: 10 Ohms
    Maximum output level: 0dBm
    Maximum Gain: 30 dB
    Equivalent input noise =-100dBm
    Powered by 9V battery or external AC adapter

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple settings.
    Short manual and complete.

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple settings.
    Short manual and complete.
    The sound editing is very easy; gain the pedal, a slight correction to keep the bass as the bass used, and add a little treble, it adjusts the volume based and voila.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Sound quality indisputable.
    typical vintage overdrive with all the settings you need to get out (bass, middle, treble)
    Rickenbacker 4003 and used with Gibson Thunderbird Studio 5

    OVERALL OPINION

    I wrote this opinion to fix some other on this site, respect for equipment worth more than incompetence and nullity of some.
    For those who know the TS9 guitar, this pedal allows the same bass, neither more nor less.
    This is EXACTLY the pedal you need if you want to get the bass sound slightly distorted that means thousands of production since the beginning of time, relatively speaking.
    This pedal is one of the best bass overdrive market, if you try to use it for what it was made.
    It adds a sleek vintage to your sound, as if you push the gain of your tube amp to get that warm sound characteristics.
    It can only do this, but you can not blame him because it was made for that, and not something else.

    It does not go into a Registry for low distortion, again. Its maximum, the light overdrive.

    For comparison, it is the same in terms of quality that Xotic Bass BB Preamp, Xotic except that provides a more modern, and the TS9-Bass allows only register more warmer, vintage.

    On a low is frankly useless (tested with my various basses, I have not been able to draw convincing, finally od as a double muff mode blendée satisfies me more simple.
    175 euros for slightly color the sound of a bass is exaggerated
    Finally I use it on drumloops and for this it is fair use ...
    AVOID!!!

    Hot

    Ibanez TS9B Tube Screamer BassPublished on 07/05/12 at 19:35
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Analogue to overdrive true bypass pedal in a nice metal case.
    Settings: gain, volume, blend, bass and acute.
    In / out jack 6.35 9 volt adapter plug (for battery hatch on back)
    Simple effective and strong.

    UTILIZATION

    The settings are fairly straightforward, provided we have already had a distortion in the hands is childish. The gain is very gradual and the blend (mix clean / saturated) can tweak the sound. However the race of the volume is very brief, at 6 o'clock we already have a large output level should be measured until smooth, then almost nothing after (see on a passive bass). Low settings are not acute and very convincing, a tone control would have been more helpful.…

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound is warm and the overdrive rather light settings pushed to an extreme that it is wrong and drool sets (like many effects) this pedal is not made for a very large saturation.
    Personally it is my game, providing a color "vintage" and hot like a saturated tube amp (it's still a pedal anyway).
    I like my fuzz branch before my preamp for an even more massive, but it alone is fine too. Used on my Fender active, with the precision microphone is ideal for the big rock in the center position (micro precision and jazz) a lot of potatoes and dynamics.
    Without pushing the gain slightly to use it as a preamp to color the sound, pushing a bit you get a nice crunch and then a good overdrive without going to extremes.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Already a few weeks with my band, it goes very well in the mix. Compared to the overdrive channel of my prampli (MXR M80) which is very cold and lack of serious and overdrive channel of my Bass Blogger that it lacks definition I am more than satisfied.
    For not too expensive it's a good warm overdrive and typed vintage, so for now I am fully satisfied, but it will not please everyone.
    Small flat on the stroke of questionable value and volume settings low / high.
    But for the same budget I would do the same choice.

    Ibanez Tube Screamer TS-9

    Ibanez TS9B Tube Screamer BassPublished on 05/10/03 at 15:00
    Bought this thing used off of ebay but it was pretty much so brand new and only paid 75 bucks for it! Retail is about 100 bucks brand new

    This thing has the best blues and classic rock sound! You can even crank the drive and get a pretty good crunch sound, but if you really want crunchy sound your better off with the turbo version of the tube screamer. Great tone and simple 3 knob operation one pot for drive,tone and level. And it's built like a rock so you don't have to take it easy on this thing!

    No problems so far!

    Like I said...Built like a rock!

    Buy this pedal for your rig. You will never regret it.

    More than a Crunch Overdrive!

    Ibanez TS9B Tube Screamer BassPublished on 04/25/12 at 06:30
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Lower non-editable analog overdrive and not rackable. Jack on in / out and standard 9V standard. Everything is true bypass and is in a boi / box slightly larger than a Boss (format 9 series Ibanez) with a nice dark green finish.

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple configuration: a knob Bass (increases decreases the sound below 100Hz) and Treble (above 2kHz), a level for the output level, a gain for the overdrive level and mix to blend dry sound of the bass to sound full.
    Settings for a comprehensive Overdrive of this format, the same as for an ODB-3 but 5 knobs instead of 3 singles + doubles, and that's great! Seen by the small gain against the pedal a large part of the race of knobs for G…

    Settings for a comprehensive Overdrive of this format, the same as for an ODB-3 but 5 knobs instead of 3 singles + doubles, and that's great! Seen by the small gain against the pedal a large part of the race of knobs for Gain and Mix do not change much in her and that's not cool!
    The manual is very short, together not need a very long, and gives four typical settings (not very useful because the pedal react differently to the instruments and should therefore be a case by case to get the desired sound ).
    Despite the simplicity of the settings it is necessary to explore them a little before mastering the beast because it is sensitive to many things (the type of instrument, the attack of your game, your EQ's, etc. ... )

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sounds are very warm and organic, but this pedal has to be one with less gain in the market! Used alone it gives a rather slight crunch that suits me the fire of God to play the old thrash metal or hard rock, it "dirty" sound very slightly, especially on the high end it is saturated and gives better attack and definition to the rest of the sound spectrum. Basically, only I use it like an enhancer and a crunch. Otherwise, I use it after a boss ODB-3, which gives a killer effect: recovering the power of sounds distos the ODB-3 except that the sound becomes very warm, attacks see themselves clearly and fly distos dripping sounds in the mix below. Basically we get sounds almost as extreme as the largest market Fuzz except that the sound is very defined and controllable.
    In short I use it with a Fender U.S. Standard PV, passive, and that's the bottom hurts: the pedal reacts according to your game but also a lot depending on the gain came upon it, with a passive bass you can not go kick in big overdrive sounds (see overdrive sounds at all), however, with active electronics you may have a bit under the feet but you can still not obtain large gain overdrive.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a month although I have since six, in fact face if this low gain, I thought it was a fault of my model bought secondhand, I have driven in a series of tests: comparison with all other TS9B that I could find in stores and visit with contracting companies. It was identical to a new, compliant, no problem. This low gain me put off for over five months, it looked like the characteristics of a TS-808 guitar but with even less overdrive, basically a pedal that only pushes the sounds slightly above the capabilities of your config (and that's exactly what it is). In short I put him five months to find a purpose and now it's done I do not regret my purchase and would do this choice, but only on occasion because 170 euros for a new pedal that adds crunch, see Overdrive light and slightly pushing your gear, it's a small price to pay! Price / quality ratio of little benefit.
