Ibanez TS808 the original tube Screamer - looks and sounds just like the original. Controls: overdrive, tone and level, power by 9V battery (included) or by optional power supply (# 108096) AND SPECIAL ADAPTER (# 113733)
This pedal is an absolute 5 stars all around, it's rare I'd rate a product so highly. After some debate of which OD to get for my Bugera TriRec (Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier clone) I settled on this! I listened to sound clips of lots of different pedals, Ibanez TS9, Maxon OD808, Misha Mansoor signature OD, Mesa Boogie drive. I was unsure on what to get and the sheer amount of famous artists using Ibanez TS9/TS808s convinced me to settle on this pedal.
This pedal, more than anything, tightens up your bottom end and takes a way a lot of nastiness and adds definition to your gain. You can use it definitely to dirty up a clean channel, which I often do, however it excels at being used on an already overdriven amp. My amp has a boost built in, and that does not compete with the TS808. I'm using it with several guitars, Charvels with EMGs, Fender Telecaster and PRS SE 7 string. There isn't a single guitar that this pedal does not compliment!
Extremely happy with this product, perfect for the brutal metal tone I was trying to achieve. Arrived promptly and safely from Thomann!
NOTE: This product DOES include an adapter to allow you to use a power supply for it.
This little green stompbox is one of the most iconic pedals ever made. Guitar legends such as SRV are one of the most well-known users of the green Ibanez Tubescreamer.
The Tubescreamer offers a very transparent, crisp and clear boost to your amplifier. Wheather you´re in clean mode and want to add some crisp or simply play in an already overdriven sound an need more punch for you solo, the TS 808 does it´s job. Based on the old original there is nothing to moan about this pedal. The chasis is really solid build and after years of use there aren´t any complaints to notice, wheather it is in build quality or sound.
The price seems heavy, but as its such an iconic and well sounding classic pedal it´s worth every penny for me.
