The original Ibanez Tube Screamer is one of the most popular and imitated overdrive pedals of all time. Note that the Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer reissue is made in the same factory, with the same parts, to get the same tone. This pedal has three controls to help get the tone you need.
So, Drive lets you adjust the amount of overdrive added to your signal. Tone lets you adjust the brightness of the sound. Level lets you set the pedal’s volume. The Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer adds very little other than overdrive to your tone. This includes only a slight boost to the midrange frequencies and boosting the overall volume of your signal.
The pedal is designed to be transparent enough to double as a signal booster when not being used for overdrive. This is to help your clean sound cut through a mix or to drive another piece of gear. You can run this pedal on a 9-volt battery or an external 9-volt power supply.
