Ibanez TK999Published on 04/21/08 at 14:27
- What are the effects, or types of effects available?
Tube distortion and EQ.
Noise reduction knob on the back.

- What technology is used? (analog, digital, tube...)
100% analogue

- Can they be edited? through a Mac/PC editor utility program?
Nope

- What connection types are there? (Audio/MIDI)
In & out, like any simple pedal.

- Is it rackable?
Errm, it's a pedal.

UTILIZATION

- Is the general configuration/setup simple?
Hard to beat this level of simplicity ;-)

- Is the sound or effects editing easy?
Yes, you can very easily get something u like.
The EQ is very powerful and sounds good.
You can get a bit of noise/hiss but, well, this not a Mesa/Boogie rack, it's a pedal.

- Is the manual clear and sufficient?...
I think it has examples of settings but who needs a manual?? It's a pedal!!

SOUND QUALITY

- Are the effects good, usable and sufficiently realistic?
Oh yes!

- With what instruments do you use them?
Don't think the bandwidth would suit a bass or anything else than an electric guitar.

Less hiss would have been good but the noise reduction thingy works ok.

OVERALL OPINION

- For how long have you been using it?
About 8 years.

- What thing do you like most/least about it?
Adds sustain for rock solos.
Couple this with the Tube King compressor and you just hoooowwwlll...!

- Did you try many other models before getting this one?
I had had many effects before...Boss ME-6, Digitech RP-6, Boss GX-70, and tried various pedals...and various amps...various sansamps...
This one turned out quite versatile and had a sound i liked more than any other. I'm old fashioned, be warned. My amp is a Marshall JTM-60 (70's style British rock tube amp).

I also have a POD 2.0 and i think this is better.

- What is your opinion about the value for the price?
I paid 950 Francs at the time (£95 back then), ie 143 euros. Not cheap.
A second hand one would be good value, though, for sure.

the use of the pedal is very very simple: one branch (the focus is in the left and right OUT is get used that's all.), it screws up the knob at noon and WOCK N Woll

SOUND QUALITY

Menatone king of the britain, TS9, TS10, Line 6 DL4, Banzai Fireball, V twin MesaBoogie, Tubeman H & K ect, ect, ect ...

I bought the get, the branch! Arrrrrrg sound is yucky. Drooling, not accurate, not level, no dynamic! for an output level nearly as strong as when it is unplugged, I must fuck volume knob thoroughly. Total short loose.
And then I said, it's funny, it'll complement in contrast with what others say utilisatueurs. And it's a pedal is light. And if I?
And I!
And what do I see it? a 12AX7 Mesa Boogie!
Hummmmm. not convinced the guy. I decided to turn this mesa boogie (which over time will be prove to be a dead lamp). I fucks him in the stomach SOVTEK 12ax7WB a lamp I had left was the days when I had my head VHT Pittbull. it's one of the lamps there was upstairs of. I close, I plug in, turn up the sound!

OH FUCK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Potato, precision, punch, dynamics, hamronique ... I do not know my bassman sounded like a plexi time boost in 1000

it is a HUGE pedal in its sound, grain, output level. A yeah I forgot to tell you that suddenly, leaving all the knobs at noon, the volume of the pedal is pass "BOTTOM" "22h adjustment." Stronger and AC part by feedback.

The equa is terrible and very effective, it can sciseller a nice little sound with a lot of precision. Really top the TK999.

NOTICE GLOBAL

It has a worry! there is only a TK999 TK999.

Why worry? well I'm going to buy me more. For what is enial is cum gain 0, a little twist of turning up the volume, and we are left with the crunch of a plexi, but a barge thing. I have the impression of being Malcolm Young.
With 11h gain, I am Angus and gain 3 hours, I VH!
There is a monstrous reactivit and versatility in this pedal. Tres far the best pedal to drive on which I played.

I will never part with it.
110 euros secondhand with diode not work and 12AX7 to change. Briefly, to 130 euros, I have an unnamed killing. it's good to feel invincible.

Except that here the sound of the tube king was not at all appointments, the lamps are no utilities we do not feel it is completely transparent, it would be necessary to put some more? ago after the debate on the lamp change, is it really worth the trouble ... especially since it is not an operation for novices, with testing a version upgrade with a 12AU7, there is better but not enough to go running to buy .... especially our time's not good pedal drive missing ...
The only pedal I kept lamp is the Tube Driver with bias knob that I strongly advise you and is well above the Tube King

" with the right lamp Hey Hey!"

I play with since 1996, I replaced the lamp with a 12AX7 mesa boogie.
I found it great in rhythm but a little too sharp solo. Following
advice mentioned by my predecessors, I put a 12AU7 Electro harmonix,
and there is the slap. Obviously I played a VHT Pitbull, but those who say
that is not metal with this distortion did try this lamp's is really cheap. After everyone's tastes but I'm not ready to change.

It is fat, hairy solo, with the 12AU7 ..
