Ibanez TS808 Vintage Tube Screamer Reissue


Ibanez TS808 Vintage Tube Screamer Reissue

This is a standard TS-808 reissue with no mods. I keep it as a reference, mostly to compare other TS style pedals. Stevie Ray Vaughan’s use of these pedals is widely known, and although the pedal is far from perfect, when used as a clean-ish boost, it does provide a very nasal, screaming tone that is perfect for SRV style soloing.
