Expert Review

The original Ibanez Tube Screamer was instrumental (no pun intended) in shaping guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan’s tone, a sound that is still emulated to this day. The TS808 reissue remains faithful to the look and feel of the original, giving today’s guitarists a cheaper and easier-to-find way to summon the SRV spirit. Like its predecessor, the design is simple with three knobs which allow players to control the Overdrive, Tone, and Level of the signal. The all-metal casing on the pedal ensures that this pedal is as tough as it sounds. The pedal’s square toggle switch makes it something of a rarity in terms of the design of guitar pedals. In this case, it not only looks great, but it also makes switching the pedal on and off much easier and more functional.Rating: 5/5
