Ibanez TSV808

The Ibanez TSV808 is a collaboration with Vemuram, a popular boutique pedal manufacturer in Japan. Billed as a “Next Generation Tubescreamer” the TSV808 is a marriage of the Tubescreamer and Vemuram’s Jan Ray overdrive. Aesthetically it looks fairly similar to the standard Tubescreamer, but underneath the hood it combines the familiar mid-boost EQ curve of the Tubescreamer with the expanded dynamic and frequency range of the Jan Ray.

It also features a hand-crafted bass enclosure, as well as an output volume that is 7dB higher than the standard Tubescreamer.
