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.

Why not to make the same power input as other pedals? :D other than this I like the sound and the quality - feels like a tank.

Die Legende lebt! Arigato Hoshino Ibanez –san!
Matthias906, 08.12.2012
Halleluja. Okay, der Preis ist heiß, aber man erhält eine Schatztruhe.

Ja, wo fange ich an. Mhmmm. Es gibt viele Legenden über die 70er & 80er. Eine betrifft z.B. die ersten Fender Squier „Made in Japan“ die eine hervorragende Qualität (und Sound) hatten und die USA Mutter Strats in den Schatten stellten. Die zweite betrifft die Bodentreter von Ibanez. Allen voran das 808 in Froschgrün. Es gibt fast keinen der ganz großen Gitarristen der nicht schon mal ein 808 vor dem Amp hatte. Selbst bei Bastel Kasper Eddie Van Halen wird das Teil mal explodiert sein… auch wenn er es nie offiziell bestätigt wird. Aber, Gott sei Dank gibt es eeewig Gitarristen die es offen zugeben.

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!!!
