Ibanez Nu Tubescreamer

A classic Overdrive gets refined for the 21st century. 

The Nutube Tubescreamer is basically a standard TS808 with inverted colors and the addition of the tiny, vacuum Nutube. It sounds organic and amp-like, offering exceptional dynamics. Like you’d expect it from a Tubescreamer, it tightens up the bottom end with a pleasant amount of compression. Besides the initial set of controls they’ve added a Mix knob to go from clean (CL) to overdrive (OD).  This is a well though-out addition to the pedal since most players use the Tubescreamer either as a Clean or as a Solo boost. This Mix knob enables you to further shape the character of the pedal to your specific use.

The NTS has relay true-bypass switching, is all-analog and can be powered with 9 volt battery or 9-18 volts power supply where 18 volts deliver more headroom and gain.
