The way to go

Don't think because it's small that this pedal doesn't pack a punch! the perfect overdrive/boost that you need for you lead playing. Certainly has a permanent spot on my pedal board. Really 10/10.

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 smallest .. and the poorest of the Screamers
Mombasaflash 09.10.2021
Size Matters. I fond these mini pedals to be a bit of a false economy. They take up marginally less space on the pedalboard but the small fiddly knobs are frankly a PITA. I recently revisited TubeScreamers and conducted a comparison test between the Ibanez and Maxon offerings.

This one came out in last place as being the most brittle sounding.

No compromise (well, kind of)
Ebos 18.03.2021
So yeah there are differences between the mini and the TS808....can I blind test A/B and be able to tell which is which? No....can you? Probably not. TS Mini sounds stellar! Especially as many players' must-have OD having such a small footprint means you can easily fit it on any board no problem.

Build quality is phenomenal, thing is built like a brick. Everything feels top notch. The bottom is quite finnicky when it comes to sticking velcro. The WORST thing about this pedal is that the Tone and Volume knob are built in a way where you can't possibly ever see where the notch on the knobs. This makes fine tuning a pain in the bottom-end, especially for those who are particularly specific about their knobs (no pun intended).

I mean....talk about value for money....
