an Ibanez brochure

The warm and powerful sound of an overdriven tube amplifier has long eluded effects device manufacturers. The TS9 Tube Screamer has captured this distinctive sound in a remarkably functional format. The Overdrive control and Output Level control adjust the intensity of overdrive and output volume. The Tone control adjusts the brightness for warm and smooth or sizzling hot distortion. From the most subtle of rumbles to the most outrageous of roars, the TS9 Tube Screamer provides the artist with the widest range of usable, distinctively tube sounds.

Ibanez about the reissue

The TS9 reissue features the same careful hand wiring and analog circuitry as the original classic. Like almost all of the original TS9's, our reissue features the TA75558 IC chip. The TS9DX Turbo Tube Screamer adds three new settings for increased low end crunch: +, Hot, and Turbo.

2015-09-129.5/10  The classic sound, mods may make it more versatile and hugely expensive versions may make it a hair better but that classic sound is thereDoesn't sound the best at high gain
