These days, we guitarists have an unprecedented variety of effect pedals to choose from - basically every unit you can image is somewhere out there. But still you can spot this bright green pedal on so many pedalboards wherever you look and that is for a really good reason!
The legendary Ibanez TS-808 is around since the late 70's and has become, thanks to the characteristic midrange presence and the way it interacts with a tube amp's preamp, a favorite of so many guitar players around the globe. While preserving the characteristics of the guitar and amp, it adds sustain, edge, harmonic liveliness and a tightness to the bottom end that guitarists like Stevie Ray Vaughan desired from the first moment on.
The current TS-808 is faithful reproduction of the original with the same JRC4558D IC chip and an analog circuitry.
