Of course you know the enduring Tube Screamer Overdrive pedal is the secret weapon of hundreds of professional guitarists, but now you can have a Tube screamer with some tasty extras...
Ok so if you were expecting bells and whistles you'd be dead wrong. The Tube Screamer way of doing things is simple but effective.
So the TS808DX doesn't give you a whole load of extra features, just one powerful but effective one: an additional boost circuit.
A popular use for Tube Screamers historically is to turn the overdrive and tone to minimum and boost the level for a clean boost. Trouble with that approach is you had to make your mind up whether to use it for a clean boost OR as an overdrive (or just buy 2 pedals!). With the TS808DX on your board you get both in one pedal: the boost and the overdrive are completely independent of each other so you can engage the clean boost with or without the overdrive and vice versa. And as a neat touch you can choose whether the boost comes before or after the overdrive, which gives you the choice of driving the overdrive harder for more gain (in Pre mode) or making the overdrive louder (in Post mode) for solo passages where you need to be heard.
And now the geeky bit you've been waiting for: yes it does use the JRC4558D chip: the original, best and most sought after chip for Tube Screamers so you know you're getting THE Tube Screamer tone that has graced thousands of professional stages and studios.
Here's what Ibanez say about the TS808DX Tubescreamer
For over 30 years the Ibanez TS808 Tube Screamer has been one of the most popular overdrive pedals in the world. The unmistakable little green stomp box has been a perennial favorite, cherished by rocks most celebrated guitarists for it's warm, creamy tone and unequivocal responsiveness. Now Ibanez has expanded the palette of "The Screamer" with the new TS808DX.
Simply put, this new version is two pedals in one: A true TS808 Overdrive, featuring the JRC4558D IC for that signature soft, subtle clipping sound, and a boost circuit, capable of adding up to 20db at the tap of a switch. The pedal incorporates two individual, true bypass switches for total independent control, allowing the Overdrive and the Booster to be used separately or in conjunction with each other. Add the Boost for a few extra db while playing through the Overdrive circuit, or just engage the booster on its own for that little extra lift while playing clean.
A toggle switch allows for the choice of placing the Boost Pre or Post the Overdrive section and a rear panel switch offers the option of 9-volt or 18-volt operation, It’s the Screamer you know and love, taken to a whole new level.
