The warmth of tube amps has been the goal for most of the over-drive pedals that exist. However, the Tube Screamer has been the choice 2nd to none by people searching for the best, because it lets the guitar sing so well in its original voice. The tone can be heard in playing by countless musicians over the years and still keeps fascinating new generations.

I'm running this with Fender and Mesa amps on the clean channel with the drive off and level up, it's a great sounding overdrive, adds that mid push. Also great as a boost on the OD channel as well. Great pedal for blues and rock. As well, when I had a look inside the circuit board, it has the famous JRC4558D chip which is an awesome bonus!

Got this recently, it's great for blues, country and rock, not so much for metal though. It's a great sounding effect that almost adds another dimension to the sound when used correctly. If you're a blues player its a must have, country a must have, rock a must have. Just a great pedal.

This thing sounds great in front of my Marshall Tube Amp on either the Clean or Boost channel. Does not have a super amount of Overdrive, but enough to complement the Amp. I set all the knobs to 12 O'Clock, crank the gain on the amp and roll the volume on the guitar. It will get you all the classic rock sounds you need. It is built like a tank and runs on 9 Volt battery or DC supply. Stevie Ray Vaughn used a variant of this.so it must be good.

Do not buy this thinking of it as an overdrive pedal. It is best used as a boost pedal in front of an already breaking up tube amp or even into an over drive pedal. This pedal has a mid frequency push which sounds great in a band setting, but may sound thin to you if you playing solo without a band or backing track. The bass should come from the bass player, not the guitar player .. lol.

In short, it does what it's supposed to do. It works far better with an already overdriven tube amp and as a boost or for a solo, (actually it is GREAT for this), but lacks as a stand alone OD unit sounding a bit thin and lacking warmth. Certainly not the best OD on the market, but far from the worst.

I use this pedal in front of my Peavey 6505+ just to make the output a bit stronger before reaching the amp. It's great.

It's way over hyped and not that good! Save your money and buy a nice overdrive that's been hand built with great care. From builders like JHS, Erthquaker Devices or Walrous Audio to name a few. Or if you really want this one buy the modded version by JHS it's about the same price and sounds a heck of a lot better!

I have tried to like this pedal since the early 80's but everytime I think of tweaking/changing my sound by adding a TS9, I play one and I remember why I never bought one in the first place. It is overhyped and uninspiring. My memory may be failing but so is this pedal.

Great pedal. I simply love mine. It works great as a boost and on its own as an overdrive. It could be used for AC/DC which is an added bonus for me :)
