The World's Most Popular Solid-State Overdrive Pedal

Dressed in that timeless green outer chassis, the Ibanez Tube Screamer TS9 overdrive pedal fuels your signal with that tube-like tone heard 'round the world. This Tube Screamer gives you simple no-nonsense drive, tone, and level control layout -- and some of the same components used in the original TS9 models that we've seen sell for several times their original price since Ibanez halted production in 1984. See what the fuss is all about by pairing your axe up with one of the best names in the overdrive pedal game.

Hear some of the TS9's many tones with this video from Ibanez:


That Tube Screaming Overdrive

There's really no other pedal quite like Ibanez's Tube Screamer TS9. That rich, full, and creamy distortion just oozes from your amp, and you won't find another pedal that'll imitate what this classic tonal tool can do. From bright wailing screeches to dark overdriven rhythmic crunchy chugs, this baby will always bring an addicting wall of tone to your sound. Your TS9 features some of the same pristine and top-notch electrical components featured in the original design, so you'll know with your first stomp that you're working with a world-class name.

Dynamic Distortion with Just Three Controls

Your Ibanez Tube Screamer TS9 maintains the traditional three-control-knob layout it's been recognized for -- drive, tone, and level. Your drive control feeds in the amount of distortion you want added to your signal. Your tone knob dials in the amount of brightness or darkness you're looking for, and your level control will kick in the decibels. This control layout is all about serious tone achieved in simplicity, so you can get the sound you're looking for and get back to playing.

Instantly Recognizable and Durable Green Chassis

There's probably no other distortion pedal as widely recognized as Ibanez's TS9. Your TS9 features that same green metal chassis and stompbox design that you'll find on countless guitarists' pedalboards. This baby is durable -- it will hold up to many years of stomping and rocking, and always deliver that tone you'll grow to love -- if you haven't already -- as part of your own sonic signature.

Features:

- Classic TS9 overdrive
- Maximum gain of +30 dB

Product Description

There is no single stomp box more famous than the Ibanez Tube Screamer. Thanks to tubelike distortion, smooth sustain, fat tone, and acclaim by artists too numerous to mention, the Tube Screamer has been and continues to be the world's most popular solid-state overdrive. So much so that after production of the TS9 ended in 1984, used TS9s were going for as much as 4 times their original price at vintage shows a few years later.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (219 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good buy all around"
Sound: This guitar can bring out that fat tone you just cant get any other way. Its adds a nice touch to my distortion channel and a light, bright distortion in the clean channel. Basically amazing all the way around. Feature: Nothing special about the features, pretty basic Ease of Use: 3 knobs and a button. Plug n' play. Analog which means its great with anything and you don't have to worry about all that electronic crap like with most pedals. Quality: This thing is a tank. Its actually pretty heavy for its size and really durable. Everything is metal it should last forever. Value: I'm actually surprised it isn't being sold for more. It feels and sounds worth way more than it really is. If you have enough money for something else, save your money and get this. The Wow Factor: I picked it up because I was already spending so much on a tube amp and I thought "ehh this should go nicely with my amp." Heck ya it does. I can't play my amp without it. The sound out of this little stupid green box is amazing. Overall: The tube screamer is known to be amazing with good reason. Its durable, sounds astounding, and can actually produce a wide variety of sounds for how simple it is. What more could you ask for?

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "TS9"
Overall: I replaced my Boss SD-1 with this TS9 and couldn't be happier. The TS9 has more of a real smooth tube overdrive without the edge or harshness the SD1 had. The SD1 is a fine pedal but not warm enough for blues and SRV stuff. Just as others have posted the TS9 doesn't cover up the characteristics of your guitar and is real easy to dial in your tone. The SD1 took a lot more tweaking to find a blues tone.
Style of Music: blues, blues rock, classic rock, a little of everything.
