Ibanez Tube King is a regal name in the distortion pedal kingdom. Once you hear this overdrive pedal, you immediately understand why. The TK999OD overdrive pedal features internal high voltage DC power—the best for making any solid-state amp sound just like a tube amp. The Ibanez overdrive pedal will give you anything from light breakup to super smooth hi-gain saturation. It is very versatile, with 3-band EQ that allows you plenty of play in shaping your tone. The Ibanez Tube King guitar pedal also includes a 12AX7 tube for true tube distortion.

Just received my pedal. It doesn't work. I get some sound, but it breaks up, comes on / off. Probably a loose connection. I Also own the Tube King Distortion pedal, that pedal sounds great. A very nice harmonic distortion. It's better then my Fender Tube Amp can create at normal volume. However, I have to run the gain at 2 to get a sound I like. Otherwise it becomes too distorted. I was hoping the Over Drive version of the pedal would be a little less hard core. Too bad it's dead right out of the box. The folks at Guitar Center quickly exchanged it and ordered me another one. I'm hoping the replacement doesn't have any problems. So, 0 Stars for Ibanez quality and 5 stars for Guitar Center customer service. More to follow.
Having owned the original TK999 US & Japanese versions, this is a great re-issue that's easier to get a hold of. The added presence knob allows you to tame the high end, so you can have a nice smooth tone without as much bite as the original. This is no metal pedal. There's plenty of gain on tap, but it has a vintage sound. Instant ZZ Top in a box. I'd recommend over the original, especially because of the adapter problems with the original.
