    NOTICE GLOBAL

    If we want an overdrive very useful delicacy for warm overdrive and crunch sounds rather vintage, there is no problem we can buy eyes closed. For more aggressive overdrive, prvoir another pedal because ct has not be enough.
    Cete pedal is part of my sound palette prfr blues, funky rhythmic crunch ect. A little expensive it's true (110E), relatively few can rglage, ds that rglages of Tone and volume are suitable only gain deserves to be used. But after all, the sound is very good and it is the principal.

    Ideal material to attack a very good tube amp

    UTILIZATION

    3 pots easy to adjust
    put the gain at 10:30
    to level at 14.00
    set the tone at 11:30

    With that you bump the ideal medium for solos or all blues sounds

    SOUND QUALITY

    Are legendary
    Drive that does not distort the sound of the guitar or amp (ideal)
    Its to boost the amp, give body to the sounds

    OVERALL OPINION

    Always copied never equaled
    For me the best drive I've ever used
    Caution must buy a TS9 with the original JRC4558D chip, because the grain copies or reissus has nothing to do especially if you use it with a good tube amp.
    There is nirvana ...

    Analog overdrive pedal format classical guitar type boss. Jack connector, standard 9v supply, rackmount or non editable model. The whole is placed in a sturdy metal case. Jack in, jack out, and roll youth!

    UTILIZATION

    A tone, a drive and volume, nothing too bad, after the effect is very accurate, which induces specific settings to find a sound that mixes well with the general mix (you can quickly fall into a shrill sound or aggressive).

    SOUND QUALITY

    This is a nice overdrive, less warm than 808 ts (and incidentally cheaper too), with a nice bump in the mids and tight bass that suddenly are reduced compared to the untreated. Works very well with guitars of course, but also......

    SOUND QUALITY

    This is a nice overdrive, less warm than 808 ts (and incidentally cheaper too), with a nice bump in the mids and tight bass that suddenly are reduced compared to the untreated. Works very well with guitars of course, but also keyboards (rhodes particular). It is very good for its driven gently, or upstream of a real distortion, at the time it used to change the eq for drilling during lead passages. We can blame him a simple tone instead of eq fuller, but it allows a large number of shades.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I kept some time before selling because it does not suit the band's sound in which I was (at the time I did not have my home studio or my personal projects otherwise I would have kept! ). Qualities may be its shortcomings, namely its sound will not suit all styles, even in the blues. This remains an excellent pedal, cheaper but less friendly than its predecessor, which must be done to get the best!

    Overdrive pedal with drive, tone and level.

    9V power supply standard.

    UTILIZATION

    It is fairly simple to use as delirium is always to know the measure with something else in its settings.

    Attention to it can generate buzz especially vintage.

    SOUND QUALITY

    It's simple you have a sea amps ù ^ m $! You want better sound with a warm drive, which will give a small lamp next to your old marshall 30 watt transistor war. Take it!

    Do not expect a distortion to the brutaldeathdouble trashmetal undercore is not made for it. Although coupled with another distortion, this tends to drive round your sound.

    This gives a little crunch, just enough to get a blues sound without being rough (not replace it after touching anyway).

    Coupled with an AC30 + compressor + a p'tite reverb, it gives you a sound that will prevent you from scratching your release for two hours. Mellow sound with sustain, vintage grain. No matter if you are on strat on both LP sound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been 6 months since I played with a vintage and I still enjoy.

    It allows me to have the additional crunch the AC30C2 (I does not fully gain on the clean channel for effects). It is almost always walking again.

    This is really a plus in your board.

    Overdrive. Probably THE reference!

    UTILIZATION

    To use, you can not get any easier. Rules you rate'' crunch'' and tone.
    Once you have your sound volume to the rules you there is no difference in volume pedal engaged / activated

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effect is nickel.
    it is a very light crunch that appears when you attack the strings frankly, its a good rock.
    PS: for metalheads, go your way, it is an overdrive!

    When I play in a group, this is my main pedal: lespaul, ts, bassman

    As advised by the greatest, I also tested this pedal in front of other pedals overdrive / distortion / fuzz for a little boost. It is true that it adds a little something.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for about a year.
    I have another overdrive (marshall bluesbraker, bluesdriver boss, and another which I do not remember the name)
    The Tubescreamer is, by far, my favorite. The others are nice, but it was the most pleasant sound to my ears

    The only flaw I can find him and can sometimes be annoying LED is REALLY could be more visible. We regularly ask if it is enabled or not so it was not really nose above it. Good but other than that ...

    limping very solid, with a trap below for 9V battery (not need a screwdriver to change)

    In / Out, 3 knobs (drive, tone, level)
    simple and effective, can be used as a boost (but it colors)

    Easy to use, is in overdrive on a clean channel, either boost on the clean channel to saturate the amplifier, either boost on crunch channel, or even overdrive channel crunch, to blend colors ....

    I use it before a Ceriatone Plexi 1987 with a Strat and a Gibson SG.

    She primarily uses boost (drive low (2), high volume (8)) for solos. She brings an incredible presence that is through the mix!

    With the strat is a real treat, she brings this side medium "in your face": there's SRV's listen to understand what I mean ;)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 2 years
    I had tried many other models at the time (like MXR GT-OD ...)
    I was seduced by its very characteristic that contrasts really! it gets a good slap when it is activated for a solo.

    Value for money not yucky for a pedal of this quality!
    Pedal to have!

  • Perfect from vintage blues to boosted modern metal

    Ibanez TS9 Tube ScreamerPublished on 04/30/12 at 17:21
    This pedal's been around for decades and has been used by almost every professional guitarist at one point or another. Used either as a slight overdrive or as a boost to push a tube amp harder this pedal is very versatile.

    UTILIZATION

    My only real complaint about this pedal is the LED is very dim. Unless you're on a dark stage and in direct vision it's very hard to see if it's on or off. There are mods to replace it with a brighter one, but stock it's not ideal. Other than that it's great, haven't ever had any problems and I've owned a few. Switch has never gone bad, knobs never get static-y, and jacks have never cut out. Pretty solid pedal.

Switch has never gone bad, knobs never get static-y, and jacks have never cut out. Pretty solid pedal.

    SOUND QUALITY

    This pedal has a pretty natural tone, sounds pretty similar to a real overdriven tube amp. There's a slight mid boost to it which helps cut through other instruments as well as filling out the tone a bit. With the gain high and volume around half it gives a natural overdriven tone, similar to Steve Ray sounds. With the gain at minimum to half and the volume maxed it works as a boost. Put in front of a tube amp it'll push the amp harder resulting in even more overdrive than just either by themselves. Most modern metal bands prefer to use one as a boost into a high gain amp. The mid boost again fills out the tone a little along with helping cut through the mix. It also helps tighten the low end which is crucial for faster music along with low tuned guitars.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've owned a few of these over the years and I wouldn't hesitate for a second to buy another if anything happened to this one. It's very solid built, looks and sounds great, and is a pedal that always stays in my chain regardless of what kind of music I'm playing. I'd recommend it to anyone playing jazz, blues, all the way to rock and metal.

    Picked this one up at Guitar Center in Boston a year ago (2002) for about $100.

    Easy to use (only three knobs). Definitely a mellow overdrive and nothing more, however it is great at what it does. Throw it on while on your clean channel and it's sort of a fuzz, or overdrive your leads with some added sustain and attitude. It's nice at getting a sort of Slash-like tone on lead. Don't forget SRV though also.

    The only thing i don't like is that it adds a little extra noise, especially when your on your distortion channel. It's hardly noticeable while playing, but if you have to pause for any reason i prefer to curl my volume control down a couple levels to avoid listening to the thing......

    The construction is perfectly good I'd say, but then again no guitar gear of mine has ever shit the bed so I don't have much to compare it to.

    Bottom Line is try it out. See what you think. I personally think this pedal could be an asset on anyone's rig.

    Purchased at music store in Dallas, TX. I don't remember the store, but the cost was just under $100 (hey, these pedals are a must for BLUESMEN!!!!!!!!!!)

    Simple. Direct. Pure.
    This pedal gives the extra ooomph to my Fender rig when playing da Blues. It is the ultimate boost (except maybe a TS-808).

    Could use a bit more gain, but that's why Ibanez made the TS-9DX.

    Puh-leeeeeze. This thing is a tank. I gigged straight for over a year without a backup and it NEVER failed. Just make sure to use a pedal board or external power source. Replacing batteries for each gig is a bummer.

    This pedal is a must for any blues freak. GO BUY IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
