So I'm a total amatuer guitarist and this is the first effect pedal I've owned. I love it! The sound quality is very pleasing. Despite being very small, which I like, it has quite a bit weight to it to keep it from sliding around when the cable pulls on it. I will note that this does not include the AC power adapter so make sure you purchase one separately. It doesn't offer a wide range of sounds but overall very nice. I would totally recommend to a friend.

TS Mini rocks!

By Christopher

Site Member

Comments about Ibanez Tube Screamer Mini Guitar Effect Pedal:

I picked up the TS Mini a week ago and added it to my small pedal board that already includes the MXR CBAMOD. My set up includes humbuckers and a Marshall Class 5 amp. This is my first Ibanez TS product. Thumbs up to a great new product in the TS Mini. Great, familiar, classic rock tone! Nice to have two great ODs on my board, both with unique qualities. The TS Mini is a keeper and the price is relatively inexpensive.

    I use the Screamer at clubs and at home. Just the right amount of dirt when you need it. Great for rock, blues, R&B and just jammin.

    Comments about Ibanez Tube Screamer Mini Guitar Effect Pedal:

    I collect Tube Screamers, and decided to get this for the collection. Soundwise, it works as a TS808; great transparent overdrive for stand-alone use but excels at boosting gain on an overdriven amp. Not as harsh or "dark" as a TS9, and a decent price. Definitely a TS to consider if you're trying to save some money; you definitely won't be missing out on the sound of the TS808. Also great if you want to add a Tube Screamer to a board, but need to save space. The only negative I can say is the Level and Tone knobs are difficult to see for settings, but that's true with most mini pedals. It doesn't take a battery, but there again, neither do most mini pedals. Construction is more solid than the Mooer Green Mile, and the TSMini is made in Japan (thought for sure it was Chinese). The price is great on these, but I'd also consider checking out the East River Overdrive by EHX; my current favorite Tube Screamer clone. As far as the Ibanez Tube Screamer line-up, this is seemingly the best value.

      Comments about Ibanez Tube Screamer Mini Guitar Effect Pedal:

      I made the mistake of buying a lot of other overdrive and distortion boxes over the years before finally buying a tube screamer. I really don't know why its taken this long... big mistake. Those other pedals are all gone (sold and/or swapped). I expect this to stay on my board permanently.

            It definitely has that classic rock sound, British type tone. Feels warm, but will get hissy with the drive past 75%. It's a great alternative to my brighter distortion pedal. With both pedals activated, I can get almost a Santana lead sound. Great for some juicy solos! Even thought it's small, the density and weithtr is there! Compact size and price a definite plus!

                Honestly I could not tell the difference between the mini, the standard, and the vintage reissue, at least not enough to sway me a different direction. I got a pretty loaded board, so the tiny size makes it a winner for me. Buy this and start melting faces ASAP.

                  What can I say its a Tube Screamer and that means its one of the best overdrives on the market. Works great in all situations where overdrive is needed. If you need an overdrive this is a great place to start, THE END!

                  Comments about Ibanez Tube Screamer Mini Guitar Effect Pedal:

                  Pretty happy with this unit. I got the screamer to provide a sound quality with the depth and warmth of a tube amp on a 40 w Champion. I use a Champion 40 for small indoor venues and had an irritating problem with "booming" when playing leads in lower registers. I found this little pedal smoothed the sound out perfectly in leads transitioning from highs to lows and can now just play without having to back off on the attack when playing the lower strings. I gave this a nit for having to use an adapter only because I had to put something in there...there is another model that takes a battery.

                      I actually traded in a 200$ pedal to buy this thing. It has some monster tone and is a great little boost pedal. Worth well over $80 in my eyes. I would complain about the hiss and buzz it gets, however; I have a cheapo $30 noise suppressor that handles it with ease. 10/10 would recommend to a novice player or even a fairly seasoned musician like myself.

                            This pedal is perfect for giving my tele just a bit more grit. Nothing overkill, just that little bit more that I was looking for. If I dial back the gain and run it in front of my other, heavier distortion pedals, it gives them a nice boost as well.
