This pedal is one of the best overdrives you can get for under $100. Not only does it get the best blues tone out there, but it also works great as a boost and it is versitile enough for all types of music. Through my Fender tube amp, this pedal can make my Stratocaster sustain for days. The pedal is so easy to use and it is simple to find the sound that you want without having to mess with the knobs for a long time. The knobs are recessed too, so they don't get bumped around easily. This overdrive does everything I would want it to do, and it has not let me down yet. I strongly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a great sounding overdrive without spending a lot of cash

I've never understood why people are so crazy about the TS-9, to me it sounds really muddy at just about any level. I would consider a mod, but what's the point? There are better ODs out there for the same price. Obviously, lots of of people get a tone they like from this pedal, but I would say try it first, don't just buy it on reputation alone.

Ibanez TS9

By Scott

from MO

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

The TS9 was one of the first pedals I ever bought, and I can't say I regret it, with one caveat: It needed a bit of help out of the box. I sent it out to Keeley Electronics for the Mod Plus, and its been love ever since. It'll give goosebumps to any SRV fan when I plug my SRV Strat in and play through my 65 Super Reverb Reissue. It also gives my Tele a nice, throaty boost, but I have to compress first. I'm not so fond of the way it sounds with my Les Paul (57 Classics), so instead I just overdrive my amp (Mesa Boogie LoneStar Special).

Same seasick green, same sound

By Dogstarr1

from Kennesaw, GA

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

The Ibanez TS9; This pedal doesn't feel like a reissue, did Ibanez ever really stop making these? Well it couldn't have been all that long that they were gone and when they came back they didn't really seem to be changed. I guess I'll break down and buy one this time, before they decide to quit making them again, or worse yet, change them. I just can't decide whether to get a TS9 or the more obvious reissue of the TS808, honestly, the sound's pretty close to the same. Texas Blues, SRV and "vintage" smooth overdrive with a mid boost that makes your Strat shine through (you are using a Strat when you go for that sound, right?). I'll probably opt for 2 of the TS9's myself, because that's how Tubescreamers sound best, use them in series (one drives the other)...I think you'll find that THAT is actually the sound you're seeking here. The TS9 is a reissue that feels completely original and pretty much nails the sound too.

LITTLE GREEN BOX

By archi

from Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

Looking for a tube overdrive pedal, this is your answer. Why do a lot of professional musicians use this little baby, beacuse it screams TUBE!!! Excelent for blues, soft punchy power chords and excelent lead scales when combines with another distortion pedal like i do with the boss DS-1. Get the tube, well worth the money.

Great Pedal

By Luke Darmstadt

from Phoenix, Arizona

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

I bought this pedal online as an impulse buy just because I have heard a lot of great things about it. (Which is not a good idea! Don't go around buying stuff that you don't know about! Ha.) But it turns out that the $112.69 that I spent on this pedal did not go to waste! (Even though I didn't buy shipping and it took about 5 days to get here!) When it finally came I tried it out and it has a nice retro seasick green finish with a nice, clean, crisp overdriven sound. I use very light distortion on my 100 Watt Fender Frontman Amplifier and just crank up the overdrive on this fantastic pedal and it just makes the perfect sound. Very, very customizable tone and overdrive in sync with the amp's overdrive and tone and whatever other effects you may use. Very good pedal. 5 star. AC adapter plug-in on the back for an AC cable, (Unfortunately not included) but I use the 9 volt battery that it comes with. Great pedal all around for blues, classic rock, rock, metal, heavy metal, thrash metal, etc. Literally great with ANY type of music you may want to play!!! very crispy, a must buy

By souperduper

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

Get the 2009 model because it has the original JRC 4558D op-amp chip installed like the original tube screamers(the turbo tube screamer as well).The first 2 serial number digits on the back will say:"09".The one's made before 2009 have the toshiba chip.

Nice Overdrive!

By Isaiah

from Boston, MA

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

Ok this pedal gives reaaaaal nice over drive. On top of that I use this with a fender blues tube amp which has good overdrive by itself, so all together I am AN OVERDRIVE FIEND!!! anyways... it seems as though Ibanez makes good quality pedals (i've never really played their guitars) One thing to keep in mind though, you can't get away with this as your only distortion if your doing anything heavier than like AC/DC. I play Bulls on Parade (rage against the machine) with this and it sounds great though.

Worth double easily...

By TaylorMan7785

from Arlington, Texas

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

I just spent two hours playing this through a Marshall Vintage Modern half stack and a LP studio, American Strat, and ES-335 at guitar center. This pedal is amazing and a steal at $100. You could not buy a better tube sounding pedal for what this cost. This pedal has it all. You can get an awesome sound from light overdrive to screamin' metal. It has the controls of a dual tone circuit like a Boss BD-2 or OD-3. Seriously folks, this is an amazing pedal. I've always told myself I would never buy anything Ibanez but I might make an exception just for this. If you're really serious about buying this, you should look at the Maxon OD-9 which is the same thing but it's Maxon. A buddy of mine has the Maxon one with a Keeley mod and it is simply amazing

TS9 w/ Strat and Fender Amp

By Donkey

from Kalamazoo, MI

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

I primarily use an American strat into the clean channel of a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe. This setup is very bright and very clean �ۡ���� I push the tubes playing live, but rarely past the point of breakup. With all settings @ 5 o'clock, the sound of the TS9 on its own was full of midrange with a slight bit of distortion. Turning the drive down almost turns the pedal into a clean boost (still some distortion) which actually was most useful for rhythm work. The TS9 seemed to compress my tone somewhat which is also nice for that clean-boost type sound. On its own, the distortion of the TS9 did not really cut it for lead playing. However, I've always used a Boss DS-1 for this; the TS9 going into the DS-1 gives a great sound. The notes have more sustain and definition compared to the DS-1 on its own. Moist. Overall, I'm happy with the TS9. I didn't give it 5 stars, because there is no avoiding the huge midrange emphasis of this pedal regardless of the tone setting. The holy grail of overdrives, this is not (in my opinion). Nor is it SRV-tone in a single pedal. It does add a new element to a tube amp and provides a nice complement to other distortion/overdrive pedals.

Great Boost Pedal

By Brett

from Beaumont, Texas

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

Grabbed one of these a few days ago to boost my mesa dual rec stack. I was really pleased with my tone but had heard from a few guys that this pedal can really help tighten up the tone. Once i a/b-ed with the pedal on and with it off, i could tell how much crisper my tone was!!!! it gave me so much more bite on the 3rd channel, the infamous high gain channel. if you're looking to boost your amp and add bite, get this thing.
