Please feel free to use info from this web site on ebay or other websites, but please give credit to analogman.com, thanks!An Ibanez Tube Screamer is an overdrive/distortion pedal that is mild compared to many, but allows the true sound of the guitar and player's technique to come through.The most popular was the TS-9 tube screamer, which is almost the same as the TS-808 internally.Externally the on/off switch grew to fill about 1/3 of the effect.It is not unusual for a TS-808 to have an undercoat of a different color (which can be seen in the ever-present corner chips). The top row center 4 knob pedals are the ST9 Super Tube Screamers. Click here for some more pictures of our batch of TS-808s and other rare Ibanez pedals from the tube screamer family. The following list are some of the serial numbers and features of TS-808 pedals I have had in the shop or friends' pedals.(R) means the trademark after Ibanez on the top of the pedal.The Edge from U2 uses a TS9 for most of his overdrive tones, as do countless other famous rock and blues players.In later years the TS-9s were put together with other op-amp chips, instead of the JRC-4558 which is called for in the schematics.
In AB tests, there is VERY little difference between the three chips, although the JRC gives the strongest CLASSIC tube screamer sound- the sweet vocal midrange.There is really no difference, although some of these have a Malaysian Texas Instruments RC4558P chip instead of the normal Japanese JRC4558 chip.A rare chip used was the TL4558P chip, as used in some early 8-pin IC chip Boss OD-1 pedals.The lighter green OD-855 Overdrive-II is also in the TS-808 style box and has a circuit which is similar to the 808 - the board part numbers only differ by one digit.
The overdrive and OD-II had a different, much more distorted, fuzzy circuit close to a Big Muff.They have a little bit more grit which some people might like.
