Product Description

For the Ibanez JD9 Jet Driver sometimes it's best to keep it simple. Which is why, in a world of dizzying often over-complex technology, the durable, dependable, and simple stompbox continues to be the most widely used and effective means to expand, color, distort, mutate, sustain, and twist tone.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Very nice pedal. Nice, new interpetation of an old classic."
Sound: Excellent pedal. Definately in the realm of all the other 9 series overdrives. It is a bit heavier than the ts9 but has better tone control. It actually sounds ok in the treble settings and can fake a Boss pedal if you want it to. The on/off switch is louder and has a small pop. The customer stated it is all good and has to do with the true bypass switch. Its made in China. This is basicially a beefier TS that actually fixes the biggest TS issue, the tone knob. Feature: It has a tone and "mid" tone controls. This does give you more control than the rather weak TS tone control. Ease of Use: Its a overdrive pedal, how hard are they to use? Quality: Seems fine but I havent owned it long. True bypass is good but the small pop when you turn it on did suprsie me but know i dont even notice anymore. Value: I give it a 9, im sure there is a better one out there somewhere but I like the much improved tone control set up. Manufacturer Support: I emailed them with a few questions and they wrote right back. Very good. Overall: Main pedal now. A toss up between this one and my Keeley TS808. Its worht mentioning the Keely is more than twice as much.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Boutique tone and features for a mass production price!"
Sound: I'm really picky about my OD pedals, and I really like this one. I was looking for something to beef up the rhythm drive tone on my Laney LC15 combo, without going over the top. I wanted something I could leave on all of the time and work with my volume control as needed, using my amp set up as mildly over driven to begin with. I dd not want it to impact my basic tone. This pedal excels at that. The additional mid control is a godsend. With it dialed all the way back and the tone control on the pedal rolled back just a hair, I can get nearly my exact existing amp and guitar sound, just with a bit more grit and sustain. Feature: I don't think I'd add anything to this pedal. I guess "maybe" a bass control, but the bass seems to be pretty much unaffected which is fine by me, That mid control is REALLY handy. It enabled me to dial out the infamous tube screamer hump. Having said that, if you crank it back up, the mids sing on this puppy. Great for leads, but I keep it at a min for my rhythm tone. I could see adding a second one to my setup for leads. It is a very versatile pedal. Ease of Use: No brainer. If you've ever dialed in an OD pedal, you'll be able to dial in this one. Quality: Seems rock solid. Does have the pop that everyone mentions, but this is a non issue to me. I have several other true bypass pedals that do the same thing. Value: It's EASILY worth every cent when compared to other offerings Manufacturer Support: They get the benefit of the doubt, but I haven't needed any support really. The Wow Factor: This is a real sleeper pedal. You could throw a Maxon label on it and charge twice as much and no one would bat an eye. Thank you Ibanez for finally making an OD pedal that even I like. Great job. Overall: Nothing's perfect. I'm ALWAYS looking for something new. Best OD I've found for beefing up my medium OD tone on my little Laney.
