1-1/2 lbs. of overdrive anarchy.

The Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer is a reissue that's just like the original in so many ways. Same factory, same components, same housing, same famous seasick-green paint, and the same crankin' overdrive that made the original one of the all-time classic pedals. Guitar Player called it the best. Plug it in. Crank it up. You'll hear what all the fuss is about. Tone, drive, and level controls.

I have played guitar for 40 years. I am one that will always play perform and JAM OUT! I write and record as well as play live. I won an original Tube Screamer 15 years ago and have used it as my primary pedal since. I tried others but always came back and finally stuck with my "GREEN LIZARD" as I refer to my TUBE SCREAMER. I continue to be amazed at it's durability and incredible warm tube distotion sound. You can sound "crunch" for just an edge or full sustain distortion that takes off, grows in sustain and growls a warm ballsey sound like several Marshall stacks turned wide open. The distortion when playing power chords is a clean and even sound. I used this pedal with an acoustic rig for the longest and had most listening muscian friends in the audiance scratching their heads in amazement of the sounds I was getting. I have played forever it seems and have grown to totally depend on my sCREAM'N "GREEN LIZARD" as the MOTHER PEDAL of all distortion pedals. I love the tone control and the overall simplicity of the unit. Get one. You will NOT regret it.

1 Star as the sound this unit generates is very good, if not it would take 0 star. The the construction and support are terrible!!! Only ONE (yes, ONE) screw holds the entire card inside the unit. it's pretty easy have the place were the not very smart Ibanez engineers put the screw broken and you LOSE your pedal. I contacted Ibanez support by email reporting my frustration many mounths ago with NO response. Get AWAY of this pedal. Get AWAY of Ibanez products, except if you're looking for lose money.

most dynamic pedal

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

ok so this is the only distortion/overdrive pedal i own and it seems to be very dynamic. it has a very broad range of sounds from light blues or jazz to contemporary rock i use it then put it through a delay and it still stays true. the knobs are easy to use.so yea if ur looking for a overdrive pedal look no further

Nicely Boosts a Plexi

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

I use the TS9 & a tuner pedal into a Marshall Plexi. I wanted a boost for solos & maybe a little extra rhythm crunch when needed. I have been hearing about this TS9 for years. EVERYBODY has one. OK so lets see what all the fuss is about. ... HOLY Overdrive, Batman !! This thing is SWEET ! Gives that Plexi just enough kick.... just enough sustain. PERFECT. Like the man said... its OVERDRIVE, not DISTORTION. It actually does not change the natural driven sound of the Marshall, just ENHANCES IT. I set the drive @ 9 oclock MAX, , tone & level @ noon. Some mental patients will complain about the "Not true bypass" thing. I don't hear a difference. Exactly what I was lookin for. Very happy with this pedal.

One is good but two is mind blowing

By Looney

from Laporte,In

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

Tube screamers are a Metalheads dream. Dont let these blues guys fool you. I use a ts-9 along side an od-9 with my bv120hr Sammy Hagar half stack and thats all I need. One is good but two of these together are mind blowing. These really give me that classic metal sound that I live to hear and play. The od-9 is a little and I mean a "little" better sounding than the ts-9.........

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

In my ska band, i use TS-9 on the clean channel to get this bluesy and cruchy sound like the aggrolites (drive in a 12 or 2 o'clock position)...and it gets me dance with my axe even better..TS-9 is the real deal!!!!

effects that masters use

By srvfan

from in my house

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

I saw a review that said something along the line of ts9+tube amp+wah pedal = great sound......same setup that Stevie Ray used along with the help of a octavian and a Dallas fuzz face. Awesome pedal of getting the tease tube sound. This is not a distortion pedal use it as a overdrive pedal! Use on top with tube amp distortion and you get somewhat or pretty close to SRV check out third stone from the sun, little wing.....soo much more.

Dreamy and Creamy

By Ocean Man

from The Ice block called upstate NY

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

I have had a TS9 for about a year now and it sounds great! Like the other reviews say this is not a crunch master, to tell you the truth I like it with less drive. With a moderate drive it sounds like a really good slightly overdriven tube amp, great for that vintage rock tone. TS9 + tube amp + reverb and/or Wah Wah petal = amazing sound.

great sustain

By Stefan

from Toronto, Canada

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

I initially tried this pedal and a Boss overdrive/distortion pedal. I found the tone to be incredible on the tube screamer, but found I couldn't get enough gain on it, where as the tone on the boss one was good enough. However, that was on a $1500 tube amp. On my smaller Marshall at home, the Boss pedal had no tone to speak of, where as the Ibanez completely enhanced my amp's sound. It's a great pedal for blues and for classic rock, but unlike most other pedals it sounds great when you use it in conjunction with your overdriven channel. It really adds a lot of sustain, and a really thick warm tone. It can give you that boost you need for leads, and it won't screw up distorted sound, but will just make it thicker and warmer. It really has incredible tone.

Ts-9 Swiss knife of pedals

By K.P. Murphy

from Lima Ohio

Comments about Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Effects Pedal:

I use two pedals in my rig. One is a tube screamer and the other is a wah. I have owned every kind of overdrive and distortion and I keep coming back to this. You can turn down your guitar and the tone becomes clean, turn up and you have the grunt of GodZilla!
