If I could own only one pedal it would be this one

Dara Hayes, 05.12.2018
Pros
- Sounds unbelievable especially with a Stratocaster!
- Almost half the price of the regular TS9
- ^^ that means you can get two for the price of one
- Small compact size
- Really good build quality and looks great

Cons
- No battery - only a con if you like being able to operate a pedal with a battery.
- The two smaller dials are really hard to see, even in day light. That's the reason I gave 4 stars for handling.
- As pointed out by some friends, usually mini pedals like this are much harder to repair. That was a general statement and not specific to this pedal. Additionally, thomann's extended warranty should give you peace of mind there!

I spent some time wondering should I get the full sized TS9 or will I get the TS Mini? I had read comments online about how there are differences between the sound. I also read comments online that said there's no difference because the TS mini is made up of the same internal components/circuitry.

I decided to go with the mini because I figured whatever marginal difference in sound (if any) between the two, I'm definitely not going to worry about it when I actually have the mini. This turned out to be true. It really is good enough that it doesn't matter.

From the moment I plugged this in with my stratocaster and all dials at 12 o'clock, I couldn't believe my ears. That classic tone I've heard on so many records! It packs a punch and makes your guitar really sing! If I could own only one pedal it would be this one.

The tubescreamer works really well on top of an amp that's already being pushed to the point of overdrive. A really nice setup is to have your amp volume and gain to a point where your guitar is just starting to sound distorted, but if you roll back the volume on your guitar to 8 or 9 you'll get a nice clean tone. This gives you a tonne of variety where you can play some really nice clean stuff, then you can bring the guitar volume to 10 to get some light overdrive. Then you can activate the tubescreamer to get some soaring lead or crunch kind of sounds. Like I said a huge amount of variety all with a small amount of effort.

The pedal that makes your OD or Distortion awesome!

brunofaria93, 15.01.2018
I use my Ibanez TS Mini always before a drive, i'm currently using a zvex Mastotron, TC electronic Dark Matter and the OD of a fender Hot Rod Deluxe. The TS mini alone isn't my cup of tea, i like more agressive drives but using the Ts mini with very little drive before another pedal makes every riff sound a lot better.
The knobs have a nice feel and the footswitch is well built. It's tiny so you can fit it anywhere on your pedalboard.

The only con i need to point out it's the the smaller knobs don't have white indicator to tell you what's your current setting. A white marker solves this but Ibanez should make them already with the markings on every knob.

Price: Smaller, cheaper but awesome nonetheless compared to it's bigger brothers.
