Very simple, it's a stomp box ... what it opens its esgourdes, and shoo!


I guess I ets time I arrived, I could not let such negative opinions on the corny.
I do not know how Steve Ray Vaughan stroll on the forum of AF, but then to say it's a pedal m **** worthless, you still have not grown.
Me, I'm not a professional music.

I have a TS808 TS9 reissue and DX.
Honestly, you really have to listen to hear a difference.
Certainly there is something, the TS808 is richer in harmonics and others, but the DX is an excellent pedal.
I think the problem comes from its use.
It was on that for Korn or Guns, it will not really do it.
If free of rock or 60's you try more, it will go much better!

The major difference is probably that the DX has a sound a bit more "modern" than his little sister. There are more grain, but set correctly, you can find almost the same sound as the TS8.

should be compared with a TS9, I have not had a chance, but I'm willing to bet it goes.
The different modes are certainly a bit superfluous, but by dint of hacking, we can work something out.
Especially on clean tones with a slight crunch.
On the mode TS9 you can give a field day with the drive to the bottom, it sounds.


I must have been about a year.
Influenced by the advice, she sprayed my rig, replaced by a TS808.
I put the DX for sale recently, and finally, a few weeks ago, I reconnected, and I'll keep it.
I do not use it the same way that the TS808.
I put a very light on the drive TS8, and 3 / 4 on the DX.
I think it sounds great.

I do not know if I referrer this choice because I am also eyeing TS808 and I pretty Ducoté Xotic home right now.

But what is certain is that the DX is a good pedal.
Of course, we must know why we buy is a pedal for blues, rock, but not really something else.
As always, it is a matter of ear!
