Early version Ibanez Tube Screamer pedal for sale in excellent working order and good cosmetic condition (see detailed photos).
This particular pedal dates from c1980 and it sounds every bit as good as a vintage Tube Screamer should. It’s in good condition with the usual chips/scratches to paintwork and very original internally aside from the battery clip and one screw. The chip is a Malaysian TI RC4558P on the earlier Maxon ‘A’ board; it has the ®logo and dash in the TS-808, as well as the chrome nut on the power socket and is a low serial number #115***.
Everything works as it should – no scratchy pots or dodgy jack sockets (it is always possible that some crackle may develop over time when not used – this should disappear with a couple of turns of the pot – this pedal is currently crackle-free).
These pedals are legendary for their great tone, and were famously used by Stevie Ray Vaughan as part of his signature sound – also by Joe Bonamassa amongst many others. The reissue pedals are ok, but the original vintage pedals sound really great – creamy & warm – especially when driving a valve amp.
