Best one I tried

16.03.2016
The best. If you want to sound like your guitar heroes without practicing all that much this is the closest you`ll get. I`ll never use anything else. It came in a huge box and was everything it said it woild be and more!

I power it with voodoo lab and simply love how it works. It came with a little cable thingy for its power needs and never had any problems. Best tube screamer I`ve played, much headroom.

The legend is alive! Arigato Hoshino Ibanez san!

Matthias906, 08.12.2012

Jetzt zum Gerät selbst: Geliefert wird das Teil in einem Umkarton mit japansicher Zertifikations und Qualifikations Bescheinigungen - das Teil kommt definitiv aus Japan. Dann kommt die eigentliche Box. Mein Gott, wer die Verpackung seines Apple Produkts für hochwertig hält, der wird hier eines besseren belehrt. Metall, richtiges Metall in 808 grün lackiert, und nur für die Verpackung. Wahnsinn! Jetzt: Schatztruhe öffnen. Und, gebettet zwischen viel Schaumstoff, der TS808. Genial, dass TS808HWB macht einen sehr, sehr hochwertigen Eindruck.

Erster Test an verschiedenen Amps (Röhre und TRANSE, und Guitar Rig). Der Sound ist absolut amtlich und gibt jedem Amp eine extra Portion Sahne obendrauf. Auch in Zeiten von Guitar Rig und Monster Röhren Vorstufen Schaltungen bleibt das analoge Teil eine "Hausnummer" an der man nicht vorbeikommt. Selbst nach so vielen Jahrzenten... Wahnsinn. Auch wenn der Amp auf Clean steht und das 808 Overdrive leicht aufgedreht ist gibt`s warme Verzerrungssättigung die das Signal aufwerten.

Nun die blanken Fakten, bzw. warum unbedingt die teure Nobel Edition:

- Durch das dicke Metallgehäuse ist die Schirmung (EMV) besser. Es rauscht und brummt nciht/weniger als bei der Plastik Schwester.
- Es gibt einen 100%igen Bypass Weg wenn das Teil nicht aktiv ist
- Der Schalter ist sehr leise und hochwertig
- Durch das höhere Gewicht (wieder im Vergleich zur Plastik Fraktion) bleibt das Teil auf dem Boden an Ort und Stelle.

Einzige negative Anmerkung: Für den Netzteil Betrieb mit aktuellen 9V Netzeilen benötigt man den im Lieferumfang befindlichen Adapter.

Fazit: DIE LEGENDE LEBT! Und wie!!!" data-mt-lang="en-x-mtfrom-de" data-translated="Alleluia Okay, the price is hot, but you get a treasure chest. <br><br> Yes, where do I start. Mhmmm There are many legends about the 70s & 80s.

Especially the 808 in frog green. There is almost none of the very great guitarists who did not even have an 808 before the amp.

Yes, where do I start. Mhmmm There are many legends about the 70s & 80s.

Now to the device itself: The part is delivered in a box with Japanese certificates and qualification certificates - the part is definitely from Japan. Then comes the actual box. My God, who considers the packaging of his Apple product to be of high quality, is taught here a better. Metal, right metal painted in 808 green, and only for packaging. Madness!
