Ibanez STL Super Tube
Cheap classic saturation 80. We were not spoiled at the time ...


No need to book.


The sound that comes out of this pedal is extremely grainy, unpleasant though it remains well bite. With a small saturation, or as boost pedal is nice, as soon as I turn the knob "drive" is in my ears well-rotted, I like seeing the Novanex my 16 years (n it is not positive ...).


I emerged from the shelf or she took the dust to confront my bad memories. She will go back until I documented (maybe) on ways to get it right (change diodes "clipping"?). This is a really cheap pedal and nowadays you can find better for less. When I see some ads at the same price as a new Blackstar ... nawak!

Sutch's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A great overdrive"

Ibanez STL Super Tube
This is an analog pedal that has not one but two famous JRC4558D chipsets that are so popular nowadays. It can be fed by batteries or use a cord type boss. It is compatible. The only negative is that the plastic buttons that do not fit. But considering the sound, it does not matter.


I did not have the manual. Anyway, it is the use that is made up.


I use a U.S. Strat and a Fender Supersonic 60 watt all lights. His hendrixien and SRV guaranteed. Its clear, this is a smooth and biting overdrive. Saturated, it's a good boost that colors the sound well.


I tried before two visual sound (Double Trouble, Jekyll and Hyde), the maxon OD9 the Ibanez TS9 and 7 (which is not bad for the price elsewhere) and is not to say it is in the old pots you make the best soups. These are strong Japanese 80s! This is a pedal that has not been published a long time and will be more listed for connoisseurs ... I remake that choice without hesitation, especially when used, I got it for a good price!

Ibanez STL Super Tube
Overdrive type TS9/808 better because more velvety and versatile!
the famous analog circuits used in both previous and OD are Famous!


Very intuitive to use, but more complete than 9 or a TS BOSS SD1!

Once found the right setting, it sounds any configuration amplifier / guitar


Ideal for playing the blues plugged in between my amp and my Fender Start with clean channel!
less effective by the metal connected between my 80 Charvel 'and my marshall!


After going through the digital effects and modeling, I returned to my faithful Supertubes m'acompagne which has now been 20 years san no seed!

if you find one on the net for less than € 150, jump on it, it is much more than simply intelligent to € 180 in one OD 808, which although it is formidable, unless you give the Supertubes

Ibanez STL Super Tube
. Overdrive pedal analog (with 2 JRC 4558) made between 1985 and 1987 and, like many effects by maxon ibanez, "Made in Japan" only
. Priori Ibanez ST9 copy of the revamped series for L


. Of course with a further adjustment of the sound editing is more complicated but finished almost unique sound of the TS 9!


. As effective with microphones simple as double


.15 Years of loyal service
. As essential and complementary to a rat, yet for 30 years I have owned both pedals, but the!

Overdrive transistor 80's.

************************************************** ***********************************


Everything you read on the magic of "Ibanez Tube Screamer" and other vintage "Maxon 808 ..." is concentrated in this model.
It is all I think the outcome of the famous series from Ibanez, produced just before the arrival of digital technology in the world of music (with of course the famous chip that JRC 4558 D MAXON retries to make today its "Vintage Reissue")

The "Super Tube" offers two bonus pots "BITE" and "BRIGHT" that make it formidable.
A crunch of exception, a mellow, bass, midrange serious sweetness .... biting !...... to fall madly!


Absolute efficiency. No souffle.Que quality.
The only problem: very rare Ibanez .... no one has produced a single year: in 1986 I believe.
The rating is in my opinion argus hyper underestimated in terms of product quality, trust me. This overdrive KILLS!


My opinion as a guitarist for almost 30 years of experience:


That's it ...... and said without exaggeration!
