Ibanez HW Tube Screamer

Worth every penny! It is everything you could want in an overdrive pedal. It works well with a Les Paul, Strats, Tele's, an SG and an Ibanez PS10. The overdrive is smooth but can also pack a wallop depending on how you set the controls. I tried it with a 64 Bandmaster, 65 Twin Reverb, 83 JCM 800 and a 90's JTM 30 so far and have get to find a bad combination. I cant believe I waited this long to get one.

Top notch all the way.

FIrst off, the vintage military style ammo box looks really rad. Even though this will likely stay on my pedal bored, you can tell by the heavy duty housing this pedal is legit. I'm playing a Les Paul Junior through an AC15 Custom (standard version). Now the most important part, the sound. I keep all the pedal knobs at 12 o clock and my amp just at the edge of breakup so if I really dig in you can just hear a tiny bit of drive. This thing sounds really rich. If you want is to get gnarly, it will do that too. Anywhere the settings land, you are getting a high fidelity sound. I have owned five or six well known overdrive or distortion pedals in the past year but this one is for sure my fave. Another fantastic feature is, it plays nice with my compressor. I do not use one often, but when I do its nice to know my rig isn't going to have a noisy freak out moment. This list goes on, it also plays nice with my Eventide Timefactor, and my TC Hall of Fame Reverb. It does such a good job at letting my other effects do what they are designed to do. I know this pedal costs more than you want to spend but if you want a top notch overdrive pedal and prefer not to spend the time and money searching for the right sound, this pedal is it.

This pedal is so much better than I expected. I'm using it in front of my Roadster to tighten up the high gain channels and enhance the cleans. This pedal is so responsive and organic sounding. No regrets here. I'm glad I took the plunge. I did find it odd, however, that it did not come with a power source. Luckily I picked up an Eventide Powerfactor in the same order, but still the pedal required that I use the adaptor that came enclosed with the Tube Screamer.

Sweet, warm, overdrive, nothing is better then that in my book and if that's what your looking for then you should pick up this pedal while you still can. I already had the Maxon OD9 in my pedal board, which is in essence 'the original tube screamer' since Maxon was the OEM manufacturer for Ibanez from 1974 to 2002. Anyway, IMHO this pedal sounds very similar, but is still even warmer... Maybe it being hand wired has something to do with that. Also this pedal is very transparent, so if your just looking for a clean boost this would serve you well in that area too. Bottom line; this is a very versatile pedal with silky smooth, tube-like distortion that should please any player.

Don't be skeptical--THIS one is worth it...

I was skeptical about the expense of this pedal, but seeing that the circuitry and the components followed EXACTLY the original, I purchased one...and then....WOW---it blew me away! I've been trying to find the tone this thing brought me for years....finally---it's here. Pure sweetness and creamy distortion that is "just right".. I liked it so well that I bought a second to run in line. THAT is the perfect combo---Just nothing else is needed! If it sounds like I'm gushing, well, I am! THIS is THE overdrive pedal. The only one that comes close is the MXR O.D. Badass pedal, and it's OK...but this one is even better by a few shades!
