Clone of the famous Tube Screamer improved by two options: Fat bass and releasing video that gives more body to the sound. Pedal assembly kit yourself and option to purchase already assembled
3 knob (Drive, Tone and Level) plus 2 switch to engage the two options (Fat and video). A very clear and regularly updated manual is available on the Techniguitare site.
The sound quality is superb. I use an Ibanez Roadstar II Series single microphone (Channel and environment) are more than safe and definition, when the bridge pickup (Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates) it gains definition. One has the impression that the sound is "spatial" that envelops you.
I use it for a week and the sound is really terrible, used on Line 6 in Speder IV 30w modeling the sound is transcended by the pedal (facade). The sound is much warmer (you would think a tube amp) even clean the drive to 0. I also have a MXR Custom Badass 78 that I love, but I admit that this has become the youngest pampers my pedalboard.
Without hesitation I would do this choice, the pleasure of being able to build something with his hands just add a quality sound. For those who do not have the soul of a handyman, the pedal already rising costs less than the original TS with more adjustability sounds

benderleben's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
a true vintage analog and true bypass OD with a clip and a fat that still allow more versatility ...
very very very simple and instinctive!
the switch and button are well placed for the trigger feet.
I for my part mounted version of the TS9 (I is not done testing TS808) very transparent provided that the tone or dice background that straightens just obtained very quickly bcp darker sound as box and it is very nice too ...
the drive / gain and very sensitive button used throughout the race, a huge volume of reserves that make a very good boost qd the drive and decreased max.
clip boost the medium and fat frees severe (acute micro micro medium gives its kind)
Top notch this is crazy especially at this price .... I tested a 808 maxon dating and I bcp bcp more gain! but if I want I can approach the register without problem! short a killer j'vous said!
