Perfect and Multipurpose
20.07.2015
Multipurpose
Yes summarize with one word "multipurpose" I spent two weeks researching and testing what the best sound for an overdrive pedal, I tested Electro Harmonix Soul Food, Boss SD-1 Boss BD-2, Boss OD-1X Overdrive Boss OD 3, MXR Zakk Wylde Berzerker Overdrive, and Chegui the comclusão that all these cited in the test are basic, is limited in my opinion.
When it came time to test Ibanez -TS9 was a surprise, with a Fender Super Reverbs perfect sound you can feel the valves scream, Marshall
DSL100H also perfect, my neighbor asked to turn the volume down, only I had traveled in sound, picked up my Fender Mustang I VII and the TS-9 working very well.
In conclusion, Ibanez TS-9 worth every cent paid, you can play Blues, Rock and Metal easy next to a Big Muff TS-9 boosts for a strong sound and the heavy unequaled, first choice for SRV and Kirk Hammett now I know why It was and is unequaled.

(Forget test on YouTube, or any video for pedals, you need to feel the pedal for yourself, you never know the trick used to fool your choice)

It is what it is! I use a '59SLP reissue and indoors at least, that needs a tube screamer! I've used more modestly priced OD pedals in the past but tonally these are of a higher standard so the price tag is somewhat justified!

The range of the TS9 is great from clean boost to heavy drive it can be used for a variety of styles. The endless debate between the TS808 and 9 isn't as clear cut to me as saying as the 9 is more "modern" or it's "edgier". As with any signal processor you can manipulate it further using your guitar's volume and tone control. This pedal isn't true bypass so that's worth noting, but it's versatile and very good ad what it's built to do.

A must have
Franck666, 07.05.2021
I was a bit dissapointed of the raw and fizzy sound of my MESA Dual rectifier Roadster and I had a hard time dialing in a good metal tone but with this Tube Screamer in front it's just heaven.
I followed Ola Englund's good avice on the settings of the pedal: Level at max, gain at zero and tone set to 1 or 2 o clock (according to personal preferences) and you're good to go.
Great purchase and great service from Thomann as always.

Great piece of kit
14.12.2015
Classic sound, I'm currently having fun using this to push the preamp in my all valve Marshall TSL 602.

The first thing I've noticed, moving away from my Spider IV modelling amp to valves and using this to get my tone, rather than modelling circuit is just how much sustain I'm getting off my Les Paul Standard. I've never heard it sound like that.

I've gone back to the Spider and compared - although it's way more convenient to push a button, you can just hear the sustained notes drop off way before they should.

So overall, using this pedal to boost signal into a valve amp preserves the actual instrument signal, its sustain and clarity, but be prepared to be fiddling with dials for a while until you're happy.

Good overall build quality on the pedal, LED is notoriously difficult to see when lit and the battery connector is a bit cheap, but those are not big problems. Recommended piece of kit.

Not my sound
Danchu, 28.03.2021
I used this effect for a little bit for a few gigs. Totally didn't like the fact that it really changes your guitar tone and makes the mids stick out in an ugly way. I play with a tele in drop B through a mesa boogie and this effect just didn't sound right for my setup at all. Doesn't mean it won't work for you, but I just felt that this effect butchered my sound and ending up selling it

Doesn't really need any presentation. There are no reasons at all not to have one in our pedalboard, no matter what music genre you are playing.

One trick pony, but what a great trick!
Christopher892, 16.05.2013
I bought this when I got my valve head, as I needed something to give me a touch more boost and overdrive, and to push the gain a touch more. The features are basic but effective, and it does its job really well. It's great for giving a dirty sound that little extra push over the edge. However, this isn't really a distortion in itself, it works really well in conjunction with something else as the main source of your distortion, but on its own it is a little weedy. Having said all that, it is a vital component of my pedalboard, and it does its one little job better than anything else.

Simple Yet Effective
Rocoll, 09.01.2015
I bought this pedal for extra drive on top of my distortion sound. It works very well and definitely lives up to the 'tubescreamer' title.

It is also good at giving extra boost to a clean sound - like pushing the headroom on a clean channel. Perhaps not ideal as a stand-alone distortion pedal

Very easy to use (with just 3 knobs level, tone and drive) & very effective

Sounds great on any amp!!
putchermalta, 03.04.2020
Gain on 0, level on 10, tone to taste. I use over a dozen od pedals for this purpose, but the ts9 is the only one that plays nice with every single amp I own. Also works well with other pedals and can definitely add tightness and definition to any pedal that you put this in front of.

Great pedal
TTguitar, 26.08.2019
A great pedal to use either as an overdrive for a clean amp or as a booster to an already driven sound.
It worked great with my Fender mustang 3 (which usually does not work good with pedals). It gave all my sounds that something more.

The classic overdrive
Mark_vV, 05.02.2020
Use this as an overdrive for the gain stage of my Dual Rectifier, it is obviously a classic with great quality build. Setting the gain to 0 and level somewhere between 50-100% and the tone at 50-75% is awesome and transforms the sound to be much tighter than without. Specially the low end.

A must-have Classic
TC Vu, 14.02.2014
The Tubescreamer is deservedly a classic among the pedals. It is very versatile, it offers subtle to drastic changes in sound. With gain knob to zero, you can "fatten" your clean-sound, at higher gain settings, you get a nice classic rock distortion.

a classic
myNameIsNobody, 21.10.2019
if you play more than jazz - you will need one of these.
sure there are a lot of similar models out there or newer versions with more features but this one is a classic for a reason.

Great sound
Glenn007, 04.05.2020
Great with a valve amp to add that extra distortion level. If you have a 2 channel amp this can effectively add a 3rd channel in between clean and lead.

Classic Overdrive pedal
kineskistapici, 03.07.2019
Like all overdrive pedals, the Tube Screamer is designed to give your tone some warmth, crunch and gain. Unlike all overdrive pedals, the TS9 excels in complementing your guitar tone, rather than reinventing it. With only 3 controls, Drive, Tone and Level, the TS9 is a simple and low fuss effects pedal.
