The Tube Screamer from Ibanez (originally built by Maxon) ranks as one of the most influential pedals ever made and set the bar for generations of overdrives to come. The TS9 of the early-to-mid '80s was the second Tube Screamer model after the TS808 and has been used guitarists from the gamut of styles including Trey Anastasio of Phish and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Originally produced from roughly 1981 to 1985, the TS9 was brought back into production in the early '90s. This page includes examples from the '80s run of production.

    Great for pushing a clean amp with single coils over the edge or taking a jcm 800 into thick, creamy humbucker land. An all time great, but not quite as open sounding as my old TS 808 with the TI Chip. βœŒπŸ»β€οΈπŸŽΈπŸ‘½πŸ˜Ž
