Ibanez TS9DX

Effect

When it comes to the classic pedals of the rock music, the Tubescreamer has to have a very high ranking. At the end of the 70s, the Ibanez Tube Screamer 808 appeared, an overdrive with real tube-like characteristics, back then a sensation. His successor, the TS 9, has since been found on countless pedalboards of all the great guitar players - here just two representatives are mentioned: Stevie Ray Vaughan basically overdrove his Fender Amps with a TS, thus setting a new standard for guitar sounds, and Gary Moore took the best out of his Marshall amps for many years by feeding them with a TS signal. The TS is not too distorted, but the volume is boosted thus getting more from the amp. Ideal for amplifiers that don't have that much distortion. Just a kick on the pedal, and you have a harmoniously balanced and assertive lead sound.

For those who want to torment their amps a bit more, there are 3 more available beside of the TS mode, namely "+", "hot" and "turbo". More gain and bass can be produced here, without losing the classic tubescreamer charm. Settings with higher gain naturally sound also great.

The ideal TS for people who want to have "more".

Lots of tones

This is a great pedal. Built like a tank, and it takes the standard 9v input. The 3 TS modes basically give you more overdrive and more bass as you switch between them. I generally stick to the first two as I have this pedal driving an actual tube overdrive and the excess bass can muddy things up.

All in all this is a more versatile take on a classic pedal. It never left my board since I got it and that says something.

bluesguy 13.03.2019
honestly nothing much to add, it's a tube-screamer it's value is demonstrated throughout the years and and it seems like a must have for those crusty breaks in your amp if you play the blues _

Review Ibanez TS9DX
Paulnylinx 04.06.2018
Excellent pedal especially for boosting the volume and sustain requirements such as switching from rhythm to lead guitar for example. The overdrive effect is well balanced across all 6 strings. The pedal itself is also quite chunky and robust. Well recommended.

Having options is always good.

Tubescreamer is a recognized standard. Can't go wrong. Having some extra options for a heavier sound is great.
