PLAY AS YOU PAY
Not long ago, you'd be lucky to find -- let alone afford -- an original Ibanez TS-808. Now, Ibanez has reissued this classic overdrive. No pedal brings the distortion like Ibanez's TS808 Tube Screamer, and this reissue comes with everything guitarists love about the Tube Screamer's instantly recognizable look and scorching sound. Sporting its classic green outer casing and large square footswitch; overdrive, tone, and level controls; and the same analog circuitry and JRC4558D IC chip as the original TS808, this staple pedal for any guitarist's pedalboard is ready to fire up your sound with that infamous overdriven tube-styled tone.

Original Analog Design and Circuitry

Your reissue TS808 Tube Screamer stays true to the original TS808's design, both inside and out. To get that pristine tube tone, this pedal uses the same JRC4558D IC chip and the same analog design as the vintage version. Why change something if you know it's working? What you get is the TS808's sought-after sound and dynamic overdrive that guitarists have come to expect from this monster of tone.

That Infamous Thick Overdriven Sound

You know that Tube Screamer sound as soon as you hear it -- a thick, powerful, and acute output that can't be mistaken for any other pedal. Just a simple tweak of your overdrive and tone controls will show you just how much this tiny pedal can morph your signal into a thick wall of tube-toned fueled force. A wide dynamic range of sound is at your fingertips. Just plug this baby in and play for hours.

Mean, Green Vintage Look and Control Layout

Your Ibanez TS808 sports that famously recognizable green outer casing and large square footswitch. Just like the original, this baby has three controls in a simple layout. Your overdrive control dials in how much your signal breaks up into that rich distortion, and your tone control gives you a wide reach of brightness or dullness. As soon as you fire this baby up, you'll know why it's become such a staple pedal for so many guitarists across so many different genres.

Features:

- Classic green casing design and large square footswitch
- Thick overdrive and tube-styled tone
- Same analog circuitry and JRC4558D IC chip as the original
- Overdriven distortion in the style of overdriven tube amps
- Simple layout of overdrive, tone, and level controls
- 1 1/4" input and output jacks
- Uses 9-volt battery

Product Description

It's back -- the incomparable overdrive pedal that's been described as "the Holy Grail of Tube Screamers." The TS808 reissue features the same famous large square footswitch and the even more famous warm tones of the JRC4558 chip used in most of the original TS808's. For players who feel their tone is suffering from a lack of real warmth, the TS808 is the Real prescription.

According to Ibanez, each JRC4558 chip is tested and only those meeting the optimum performance standards are selected for use in the TS808 Tube Screamer Reissue.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "MY MOJO'S WORKING NOW WITH MY NEW TS808."
Sound: YES,THIS IS IT! THE NEW TS-808 IS THE MOJO FOR YOUR RIG.REMEMBER THAT IT IS NOT A DISTORTION PEDAL! IT IS,HOWEVER,THE PEDAL TO EXACTLY DUPLICATE THE OVERDRIVEN ,TUBESCREAMING,AND CLEAR SOUND OF SRV ! WHEN I SAY CLEAN I AM SAYING THAT THIS TANK OF A PEDAL PRODUCES A VERY TRANSPARENT TONE SO YOUR GUITARS NATURAL SOUND COMES THROUGH. Ease of Use: VERY EASY TO USE.WITH ONLY 3 KNOBS YOU GET UNDERWAY QUICKLY. Quality: I HAVE A 25 YEAR OLD IBANEZ MS10 METAL CHARGER AND IT IS STILL LIKE NEW,SO I SUSPECT MY NEW TS808 WILL LAST A LIFETIME. Value: THE TS808 AIN'T CHEAP BUT WELL WORTH THE MONEY ONCE YOU HEAR THE 'MOJO'. The Wow Factor: A MUST HAVE FOR ALL VINTAGE TONE FREAKS.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A rich and warm tube sound"
Sound: This pedal is a really unique overdrive pedal because it adds so much warmth to your tone when you use it to boost you amp. I use a Mini Rectifier, which I rarely even need the Tube screamer, but when I do use it lets just say it adds a lot of rich and warm tones coming from it. Whether you want to boost your solo output or boost your tubes to some insane high gain this pedal is for you. A lot of people say it doesn't have much tone to it, but a lot of people I talked to said the opposite as its really a nice warm tone. If you're looking to get the maximum high-gain sound out of it try these settings: Overdrive 0-3 ( all the way off or up to 9 o clock ). Tone - All the way up. Level - all the way up. With the Level all the way up and drive down to none or barely any, it really pushes your pedal and your tubes to the max because your getting all the volume and gain you need in one pedal. Feature: Its got 3 main features. Overdrive - which acts as a gain output. The farther you turn the knob, the more gain you'll get. If you do decide to crank it all the way, invest in a noise suppressor - it will come in handy. The tone knob - This is what a lot of people have a dilemma on. Its really easy to dial in a tone because all your doing is having low end on the left, and high end on the far right, and mids straight up. That's how I've found it to be. It really delivers warm high end sound with the tone knob all the way to the right. The Level knob - This function is your basic output or volume knob if you will. Really simple to use just adjust it to your output needs. Ease of Use: It's really simple to use. Just mess around with it until you find what you're looking for. 3 knobs should be easy enough for anyone to get familiar with. Quality: It's made extremely well. Fully functional, no defects or defaults with it. Value: In all its value is at an okay price. Other overdrive pedals aren't as versatile and great sounding as this one. With that said it drives the price up more, making it more expensive because its a more popular choice amongst metal heads. If I had to be honest and say what a fair price or what the sale price should be I would say around 100-115, not 180. But for 180 you cannot go wrong here because every other pedal I've tried doesn't come close to this one. Manufacturer Support: Haven't dealt with them yet, but if the time comes I'm hoping they will be of help. The Wow Factor: It's a really nice tube screamer, and has a nice green color. It sticks out a lot and makes you go " hey I wanna try that the guy " and sure enough it really sounds amazing. Overall: This product is great for getting high-gain sounds out of or just a pure solo booster.
