tubescreamer

  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Hear me out here - Obviously we know the trick of a tubescreamer in front of a high gain amp to tighten tone up (mostly from the low end roll off), but with this being such a prolific practice why not just get pickups with a tighter and less pronounced low end at the source? Wouldn’t that...

    So what you think? I think he made a good comparison, even tho it would have been interesting to hear at least something with less distortion. Personally I'm not sure I would pay the full new price for the Maxon after hearing this. There's some slight differences, the Behringer seems to have...
  3. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I recently acquired an Ibanez TS9 Tubescreamer. Unfortunately all it does is make tons of static, whether it is engaged or not. I've used multiple cables, multiple power supplies, known good 9v battery. The power light does come on when you depress the switch, but it is not passing the...

    Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar: Like the title says. I think most of the members on here are familiar with these. Condition-wise, this is still pretty much new. Has been sitting in my rack for it's entire life. Modifications (if any): Got this from Joe with the "Chaos" mod package...
  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Dear metalguitarists :) As the title implies, I need some advice on good overdrive pedals and compressors. I've heard A LOT of good stuff about the tubescreamer, and I've also heard a couple of nice things about the boss blues driver and CS-3, as well as some good comments on the electro...
  7. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Just got a Maxon OD-9, but can't use it because I get a fuckton of feedback when it's on. I use it with a Jackson RR1 with EMG's and a Marshall JCM2000. I tried it with a JCM900 and it worked a bit better, but still not good. Could it be something in the wiring of the EMG's? It was the previous...

    It seems a lot of you place a Tubescreamer pedal in front of tube amps to tighten up the low end & give the tone a bit more attack. Are you doing this for just the higain channel or for the clean channels as well? If so, doesn't doing this make it impossible to get clean cleans? Explain how...

  10. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    :scratch: I'm missing the magic here. It adds noise, and fizz, to the otherwise beastly tone o' the Roadster. What are you guys settings? I'm running it direct, (guitar -> 808 -> input). Should I be running it in the loop or something? It seems pointless, because I can essentially do the same...

  12. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Long ago I posted a thread about how to do the TS808 mod on a TS7 and it went over REALLY well! Well I thought I'd share some more love. An Ibanez TS5, as all tubescreamers except the 808, is a TS9 circuit on a cheaper board, in a cheaper box... and tanks are metal so this one is kind of...
  13. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Hello peoples. Well, it's time to upgrade my gear. I've had this for a few years now and it's served me well. It's not doing it for me any more though, and I'm trying to build up a rack unit. It's 80-100watts, TransTube (which is sort of like Marshall's "Valvestate" series). You can change...
