The Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal is the stuff of legend. A carefully crafted reissue of the highly coveted original, the TS9 is a tone purist's dream. Featuring the instantly recognisable "seasick-green" paintjob, with classic vintage-style control dials, this hard rocking beauty looks fantastic - but like all pedals, it is what it's capable of that matters. Whether you're looking to give your tone a gentle nudge or force your amp's tubes to go into a sonic meltdown, the TS9 is more than happy to oblige.
The concept is simple: plug your guitar into the input jack, connect the pedal from your output jack to your amplifier input, and away you go. The control layout is very simple to use too, with Overdrive, Tone and Level controls at your fingertips, and a footswitch to engage/disengage the pedal. Overdrive adjusts the amount of distortion that is introduced into your signal path. The Tone controls adjusts the amount of high frequency contour, adding the exact amount of bite that you desire. The Level pot allows the level of the distorted signal to be adjusted, whilst preserving the level of the original signal. The means that you can attenuate the level of the effect to kick in at the same level or crash in with a forceful energy.
The versatility of the tone controls is matched by the intuitive dynamic response of the circuitry. The beauty of the TS9 is that it responds intuitively to how your attack the strings. The softer you play, the less impression the overdrive has on your signal. If you want to give your tone an edge, simple dig in and let rip. Whatever style of music you play, the TS9 delivers pure vintage tonal luxury every time.
The Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal is an exceptional pedal that has been a favourite of guitarists for decades. Thanks to the rugged build quality of the external casing, as well as the durable feel offered by the controls and footswitch, you can rest assured that the TS9 will be part of your setup for many decades.
