Dating a ibanez ts808
Greg got one of my TS-9/808 pedals in April of 2001.He also sent me his old TS-808 to fix up, the switch was flaky.See the SILVER MOD page for more feedback from Scott from a message on my answering machine.
The TS-9/808 brings out the 'sweet' tone of the Strat without muddying things up.
Also, the midrange is voiced a little lower than my TS-9, which I think is why it sounds more transparent. Your Tube Screamer is pissing all over my poor little weak, no bass, nasally-sounding TS-9.
I'm kind of surprised that yours sounds SO much better, since mine does have the correct chip in it.

But, after plugging my stock 1957 Strat into both units and a 60's Fender Super Reverb, the TS-9/808 sounds better than the old Ibanez TS-808.
