The Ibanez Tone-Lok Series TS7 Tubescreamer Pedal is the world-famous original Tube Screamer overdrive, with something extra. A boost switch has been added for extra saturation at the touch of a button. Adjust your sound with the drive, tone, and level controls on the Tubescreamer.
On the outside, Tone-Lok effects are equipped with the Ibanez exclusive "set and forget" Push-Lok rotary pots. Push the knobs down and your tone settings lock securely inside the case—no more lost settings or broken knobs.
On the inside, Tone-Lok guitar pedals feature hi-fidelity components carefully tweaked with the constant input from a new generation of Ibanez players. And all this great stuff comes encased in cool looking, road-tough metal boxes at prices the working player can afford.

No this is not one of the more expensive tubescreamers! It is better! I have been playing guitar for 30 years and I have tried them all! If you are going to depend on this for your guitar tone and all the distortion/overdrive then you really don't know what these are used for... These work perfect for giving you that little extra attack on top of an already high gain amp! Put this in front of any high gain amp and it will tighten up the attack and increase the sustain X 10! This thing blows away the other tube screamers in my opinion, don't even bother with the others, just a bunch of hype and tons of extra $$$...
I won't lie, it doesn't sound like the vintage ones. But don't let that stop you... I love this thing. For 40 bucks, it was a steal. It warms up the signal nicely, and gives it a nice, tubey-fuzz. A cool feature is the hot switch: a further boost of sustain and distortion. Very nice. If you're not rich, this is the tubescreamer for you. If you are rich, try it anyway!
Don't let the grumpy old men with a placebo sway you from buying this Tubescreamer. It's just as good as the old ones. Hell, it's better! Very warm, jazzy tones, perfect for blues and driving your amp to that edge of distortion. Forget the edge, with the new HOT switch you CAN hit distortion too! Compared to older Tubescreamers the tone is exactly the same. Ibanez knows what they're doing. These are in solid metal enclosures that are painted silver, for a beautiful look. Some people have a placebo complex over old stuff. I don't, I just trust my well trained ears. This screamer is a huge bang for it's buck.
Compared to the more expensive tubescreamers, this one is not quite as good. But, the price is what seperates this one from the bunch. It sounds kind of harsh at some settings, but when you get the right setting, it can sound really good. This thing seems reliable to me. It's metal and it seems like it was built fairly solid. So, if you want a tubescreamer and you don't want to spend trifold on a more expensive version, this one is probably the way to go.
