It's back.....the incomparable Ibanez Overdrive pedal that vintage gear hounds are always hoping to find. And if you do want to get hold of an original TS-808, expect to pay in the region of $400 and upwards...that's if you can find one!
The legendary Tube Screamer is probably both the most-used and most-copied of all overdrive pedals. It is famous for its juicy midrange and natural, tube-like breakup, which works great in conjunction with a decent tube amp set just loud enough to be on the edge of distortion itself...and booted slightly over the edge when a Tube Screamer is kicked in.
If your tone is suffering from a lack of real warmth, the Ibanez TS-808 Tube Screamer is the real, non-generic prescription. Each JRC4558D opamp is tested and only those meeting the optimum performance standards are selected for use in the TS-808 Tube Screamer Reissue.
The Ibanez TS808 Tube Screamer reissue features the same famous square footswitch, bright green enclosure and the warm tones of the JRC4558D opamp used in most of the original TS-808s.
