Ts9 routine devices

You can actually tell an earlier TS9 through the eco-friendly covered resistors on. But i’ve a 1980 TS808 having mostly brown coated resistors and some green sort so that they weren’t regular. Some belated originals used the cook covered resistors additionally, hence look into the date programs of the electrolytic can capacitors. Usually the first two digits are considered the season, like for example the pictures below : A8350 = 1983, 50th month (original TS9, with the TA75558P chip which was in some further originals and all sorts of reissues, with environmentally friendly resistors of merely found on originals). Then the other photo is actually a reissue TS9 with big date rules A9625 = 1996, 25th month and brown resistors as applied to most belated originals as well as reissue TS9 pedals. It’s also possible to determine original JRC chips as it is shiny and darker, while the new chips include flat and slightly gray hunting.

Reissue TS9 board lower:

TS-808 reissue

At the beginning of 2004 Ibanez last but not least reissued the TS-808 extremity thanks to preferred need. It appears to be good except colour seems a little off. The reissue TS-808 utilizes the newest 2002+ TS9 reissue deck, produced by Ibanez, perhaps not the elderly, a little better quality MAXON aboard much like the unique TS808 and pre-2002 TS9. It does experience the proper JRC4558D op amp and productivity resistors, consequently it seems much better than the TS9 reissue, alike our POPULAR TS9/808 mod. We certainly have an excellent mojo mod utilizing NOS products for all the TS-808 reissue and even promote our very own COLOR mod over it. See your tubing screamer webpage for more information.

TS9DX Turbo

At the end of summer of 1998 the TS9DX Turbo hose Screamer was developed accessible to individuals that wish a whole lot more levels, distortion, and lowest stop. It is basically the just like the TS9 but possesses an additional penis made up of four FORM positions. Each position provides lowest ending, improves levels, and in actual fact lessens distortion. The very first method matches a TS9, the second just isn’t too terrible nevertheless 3rd and fourth are too very much. Establishing in late 2002 we now have provided MEANS MODS to generate all four ways most functional

View our TS9DX webpage to find out more on this extremity. This pedal rocks on BASS GUITAR in addition to keyboards.

TS7 Overall Tone Lok

Current brand new hose screamer is fashioned readily available about earlier 2000, the TS7 TONE-LOK extremity. It is actually built in Taiwan like TS5 in a metal situation which should stand up better. There are plenty of circuit panels internally, they appear is simple and lots of various results can be created using the same boards (these are typically typically vacant boards!). These have a HOT setting turn for additional distortion and quantity, and that’s very functional. The Awesome mode still operates after the mod, and becomes a comparable advancement to the shade (a great deal less severe, smoother, however has lots of hard drive). More TS7 pedals age on your correct JRC4558D chip, therefore we usually do not need to change up the chip in the TS7 mods. The TS7 is a lot cheaper than a TS9 but Really don’t envision they will hold-up nicely to significant utilize. They may not be palm made/hand wired like a TS9 or TS808. All the panels, connectors, and cable connections inside add most plexity so there a lot of some things to bust. In addition the tiny small buttons seem like crashing and we don’t take replacing.

TS808HW Hand-wired

This pedal certainly is the highest-end Tube Screamer ever made, to discover area of the boutique markets. It generally does not make use of a circuit aboard, as an alternative elements were give soldered onto a strip board like some older fuzz pedals, all of our Beano Increase, several prototypes. The elements cost about the same as a regular TS808 except I seen they put all of our master Of shade clipping diodes, causing them to a tiny bit even louder and fewer squeezed. There is also accurate bypass and elizabeth in a very good package. We are going to perform our gold or television mod on these but can’t change up the chip. However they incorporate a “choose” JRC4558D processor chip which really should staying great.
