The Ibanez Tube Screamer is one of the most renowned pedals in the world. A true classic and a pedalboard essential for many, the Tube Screamer has undergone many changes over the years since its introduction in the late 70s.
With many versions of this iconic circuit available, the new for 2018 Tube Screamer w/ Nutube follows Ibanez's ethos to painstakingly find new ways to refine and improve upon their designs. Featuring a Korg Nutube, this pedal packs an even bigger punch than any of its predecessors.
Deriving from the design of a traditional vacuum tube (as found in most high-end amplifiers), this innovative this little tube completely transforms the Tube Screamer into a fire breather. Offering a more saturated tone much like a real tube amp, not to mention richer overtones, you can expect plenty of warmth and a strong mid-range from this stompbox.
The three classic Tube Screamer controls remain, with the Level and Drive letting you adjust the volume and amount of gain respectively. The Tone knob acts as a treble control, meaning that you can crank it high if you really want solos to cut through frantic mixes.
But the Mix control is a fresh, unique feature. Letting you experiment with the amount of dirt affecting your signal, you can go from SRV-style boosted clean tones to barking fuzzy grit. This makes it arguably the most-versatile Ibanez Tube Screamer ever!
