The TS808 was one of the first Tube Screamers from around the late 70's. Now Ibanez is releasing the original TS808 just like the TS808 was around the late 70's. This Ibanez TS808 Tubescreamer is a mild overdrive / distortion pedal compared to other overdrives, but this pedal leaves the guitar's sound natural and remains intact. This natural sound is comparable to a tube overdrive.
This TS808 pedal has 3 buttons, an overdrive, tone and level knob. These buttons each have their own function, of course. Namely the overdrive knob you can set the amount of distortion. With the tone knob you can, for example, add more bite, or reduce your bite. And finally with the level knob you can set the sound level.
