Overall I think this fills a wierd void space. The TS9 I can see for players who seek that mild, warmish and smooth overdrive, and the OCD I can see for people who want hot overdrive with crunch and definition.

This pedal seems to do exactly what it states, it's like the TS9, but more, it adds more bass, more smoothness, and yes, more drive, but it just doesn't sound all that great. There's no crunch or definition, or tone in the hot modes, or at least not enough for me.
This thing is built like a tank, it take boss adapters, and the casing is just slightly longer than a Boss pedal which means it doesn't fit in my pedalboard very well. But no matter, I like the layout of the knobs, one of them controls the mode. It goes from regular TS9 to Hot to Turbo. The other controls are for drive, tone, and level.

It seems very versatile, but honestly it just doesn't get that hot. The mode switch only seems to increase the amount of bass. In turbo mode it's very hard for me to get tone out of even a single coil bridge pickup and the tone cranked to maximum. I never understood the point of the original, it just seemed to round out the sound a bit, but hardly adds any drive, this adds more drive, but it's nowhere near the levels of something you'd get out of an OCD for example.

So yeah, slightly hotter than the original, but doesn't go far enough. It fills a wierd void space in the guitar pedal world.
Quality of construction and sound is excellent. Too bad the sound doesn't really appeal to me.
Decent value, expensive, but miles more character than something like an SD-1.

    Comments about Ibanez TS9DX Turbo Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

    Got this pedal last week, didnt have much time to use it on my main amp yet (Crate VTX200S) but it already made my leads tear thru the band' sound ! I played it mostly on a super budget Univox 10w amp and even on that it sounds amazing for that 70's 80's crunchy sound. I was instantly tempted to try and learn Ted Nugent's Stranglehold, the Eagle's Life in the fast lane, Cheap Trick's Surrender, and others. It has THIS sound. You can either use it to boost your signal's volume with little distortion, or put the drive to max and even on a single coil it will be super crunchy. I will agree with the other reviews, the different modes dont have much use, to me at least.

    Comments about Ibanez TS9DX Turbo Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

    Put this through a tube amp with decent distortion and its a metal machine, or a fender\Marshall on clean you get warm overdrive for blues rock and twang or even punk and alternative. Basically a versatile overdrive pedal for a decent price, use it in your line or by itself great pedal great price .

      Comments about Ibanez TS9DX Turbo Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

      While trying to learn Santana's Europa I was just not getting the right tone and sustain out of either my Ibanez semi-hollow body AGS73T or my Gibson Les Paul. The Tube Screamer was the magic addition to my Fender Champion 100 set up to get the rich tones and deep sustain I was after. Easy to set up and use and lots of options to play with. Changes are subtle and really let you hone in on a tone you're after.

          Comments about Ibanez TS9DX Turbo Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

          Great pedal, probably one of the more popular pedals that are modded as well. The Keeley and ANalogMan versions both contain subtle differences.

          As Analogman astutely observed, as you change modes from TS9 upwards, you REDUCE the gain, but increase the low frequency. The reduction can be offset with the gain knob obviously.

          Just fantastic flexibility in a box that is amazingly uncolored (at least in the Keeley and AM forms).

          Comments about Ibanez TS9DX Turbo Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

          Interesting pedal. The added selection of tones seem at first to be a great idea the problem is the tones aren't that usable. Maybe there are some who find a niche for the tones or maybe it works with their amps. I use mine with a non-master volume tube amp on the TS9 or + setting and it really brings out those classic rock tones without sounding like a distortion pedal. The other settings don't sound awful but just aren't tones that I think a person who is expecting this to sound like a classic Tube Screamer are looking for. Given the choice again I'd opt for the regular Tube Screamer.

          Most versatile pedal I own, and I own a bunch. Wide range of uses / genres. I prefer various blues styles, and this has the versatility for the full range. Outstanding sound, and great value.

          The battery is easy to change, which is a distinct advantage over some other pedals.

          I would like to see added in the next incarnation one feature: multiple DC power outputs to "daisy-chain" pedal power on my pedal board.

            Comments about Ibanez TS9DX Turbo Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

            I absolutely love this pedal. I've been wanting to get a solid overdrive pedal for quite some time so I could get a good blues sound. Took me awhile to figure out what I should get but after some research and listening to a lot of youtube videos, I decided to go with the Tube Screamer TS9DX Turbo. It brings out a lot of bottom end without taking away your screaming highs. I would recommend this pedal to anyone looking for a good overdrive pedal.

            For bedroom use only

            By Plexi-Paul

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about Ibanez TS9DX Turbo Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

            I have tried to put this pedal on my board numerous times but it always falls short. It sounds great in the bedroom at low volumes but always seems to sound boxy when played at gig volumes. It doesn't play well with other pedals at all. I would stay away if you plan to gig with this pedal. If you are jamming at home with low volume, you will probably like it. Just be aware that there are better pedals for that and way cheaper.
            A lot of feature for an OD pedal. For features, the only complaint is the LED is very hard to see on stage.
            Build seems sturdy, should last a life time.
            Price is good.

            It's a classic for a reason!

            By Scott Lavis-Campbell

            from Olympia WA

            Comments about Ibanez TS9DX Turbo Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

            Great pedal, good value. It's a classic for a reason.
            I'm just starting to explore the options in the Turbo Tube Screamer, but I can see the versatility and from the first chord, could feel the difference from any other distortion pedal I have used. I don't have a large frame of reference for pedals, but have always been a bit disappointed with my distortion. As soon as I plugged it in I felt like I had found the pedal I will be working with for the foreseeable future. I'm still searching for "my tone" (as we all probably are to some degree) and this pedal has enough adjustment to really dial it in.
            Strong construction. Feels solid and responds to your toe tap, which is what you want from a stomp box.
            Similar price to lesser pedals. Low enough price to gamble on if you haven't played it before.

            Comments about Ibanez TS9DX Turbo Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

            The Turbo Tube Screamer is a really super deal and the various sounds it dishes out make me sound more like me!!There is nothing i dislike about this effects box.
            Many available sounds and effects really versatile pedal.
            Not too noisy even at concert volume.Adds alot to my overall sound.
            Couldn't be a better vaue out there and I looked around a lot.
