The Holy Grail of Tube Screamers

The Ibanez Tube Screamer is one of the 'legendary' pedals that has been used by many guitar icons including Stevie Ray Vaughan, Santana, John Petrucci, Noel Gallagher, The Edge and many more. Since the TS808 was first released in the 70s, it has been modified and updated many times, and this model is the reissue that features the same analog circuitry, and design components that made the very first Ibanez Tube Screamer.

Simple Controls To Sculpt Your Effect

The Ibanez TS808 is equipped with 3 simple controls that allow the player to shape the tube overdrive effect to suit their own style. The controls include Overdrive, Tone and Level; as well as the famous square footswitch to activate the effect. Overdrive lets you control how much distortion you desire; whilst Tone is for adjusting the high frequency contour, which can be used to colour the sound with extra grind and bite or mellow it out. There is also a Level control for altering the overall mix of the normal and unaffected signals.
