The very first tubescreamer appeared in 1979 and was called TS808. At the time, the Japanese wanted to steer the fuzzy sound of its predecessor, the OD850, in a different direction, more dynamic, less scratchy, comparable to the gain character of a tube amp. This was achieved by using two MP1485 chips, which were replaced by the 4558 the following year. In 1982 there was a new edition, called the TS9, which is now considered the standard for anything that produces creamy overdrive. The electronics remained, but the design was brought up to date. To this day, competitors have to measure themselves against the TS9, and rarely does one succeed in living up to the original, as countless comparative tests have shown.
One of the most famous players was Stevie Ray Vaughan, who used the TS9 as a booster by boosting the amp to near saturation and turning the pedal volume up to full and gain way down.
Ibanez had tried it over the years with various derivatives (TS7, TS10), of which the Soundtank TS5 all in black plastic can be seen as a whimsical intermezzo.
The eventful history of this pedal, which wrote music history, prompted Ibanez to create a 40-year commemorative version that does the honours in all red. The pedal is manufactured in Japan, corresponds one-to-one to the original type and should, like its predecessor, provide reliable and indestructible service for many years.
