The Ibanez Tube Screamer TS-9 debuted in 1982 and lasted only until it was updated to the TS-10 in 1985. The TS-9’s circuitry was almost identical to the TS-808 except that the output section was updated which resulted in it having a bit brighter and slightly more cutting tone. The Tube Screamer’s popularity grew and the TS-9 was eventually reissued in 1992. For more information on vintage Tube Screamers visit Analogman.com.
