    Comments about Ibanez TK999OD Tube King Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This thing will really drive if you let it. I write my own stuff. So, for me it's mostly rhythm. Just a little crunch. My favorite set-up so far is to run just a little drive into my 5 watt Fender tube champ w gold groove tube. No tone control on that as you know. Run it at 6 so it just crunches too. I run it thru a cannabis rex 12 inch miked at the edge into the P.A. Pro lead player friend of mine got a big smile out of it on stage! Set guitar half volume, then rolled on for leads. He ONLY plays high end equipment. Seeing his smile told me this rig CAN work. We all get tired of carrying around all the big stuff. This rig is light and portable and delivers about as big as it gets.

      Comments about Ibanez TK999OD Tube King Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This OD has a sweet sound but you have to find it. The classic controls are all there (Gain, Bass, Mid, Treble, Presents and level). There is also a sensitivity switch. This unit sounds best overdriving the sound and like tube amps has a sweet spot. once you pass the sweet spot it goes into more of a distorted sound and looses the articulation. The case is large and is diamond shaped. Not very conducive for pedal boards. On pedal boards it works out better if you mount it on a 45 degree angle. so it only takes up a 7" x 7" space of your valuable real estate. It also weights a pound or two.

        Comments about Ibanez TK999OD Tube King Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This is a really nice pedal. I wanted something that I could take with me and give all my amps that wonderful tube sound. I also really like all the controls to change the tones and sounds. For the cons, the pedal is huge! It takes up a big chunk of my pedal board. The pedal is also not white like the pictures, it is more of a cream/brownish color. I think anyone would like this pedal especially if you want that tube sound.

        Wonderful Pedal!!!

        Comments about Ibanez TK999OD Tube King Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I bought this pedal with high hopes and I must say it has exceeded my expectations completely! The tone it gives not only gives you the exact sound of an overdriven tube amp, but it goes further by offering various different tonal colours to really help you shape your tone, and they all sound wonderful; however, I would warn you that this isn't a metal pedal at all. It offers some fantastic medium gain tones and it can even be a boarderline fuzz pedal if you tweak the controls right, plus, the tone this pedal provides can be great for metal if you combine it with another medium gain pedal. I would highly reccomend this pedal for any genre you want to play with it and I know it will be a permanent part of my pedal board.
        The TK999OD has just about every feature you could possibley think of throwing into it! It has all the normal level and gain controls but the 3 band Eq, Hi-Lo switch, and Pressense knob really make this pedal a great buy!
        The metal housing is very rugged and the finish, glass tube screen, and jacks are all very durable, plus, the gain and level knobs are almost flat to the surface of the pedal, keeping them out of harms way. It's a very smart design.
        Even though it's not made in Japan or the US, the price is great considering it's a tube overdrive pedal and because the quality is outstanding it really doesn't matter where it's made.

        TK999OD

        By Chris George

        from New York City

        Comments about Ibanez TK999OD Tube King Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This pedal warms any solid state amp up considerably. The value is not to be underestimated if your looking to get complex harmonics and overtones along with loads of creamy overdrive. it's a keeper.
        Only drawback is it's enourmous size. Forget adding it to a pedalboard. This requires it's own floor space..Mine is not white like the illustration in the ad but a light beige color. I would have prefered snowy white.
        Add this to the front end of any digital amp and you've got genuine tube tone for days.
        Hi- Lo swithch will boost any single coils to shred like humbuckers. Built in EQ functions perfectly. You can scoop the mids and chunk up the bottom with ease. Runs cool even with the tube.
        Recessed knobs will avoid being stepped on. On- Off switch set on the corner makes for easy stomp. Bult like a tank and heavy as well.
        Tons of tube tone for about the right price.

        Clean chunky overdrive

        By SMACKMAN

        from Louisville,Kentucky

        Comments about Ibanez TK999OD Tube King Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I run this pedal on the high side of my Acoustic amp, and it is truly amazing.I can use it in combination with the gain of the amp and go anywhere from chunky clean rhythm to great chunk and sustain with an increase in gain.This pedal gives a solid state amp a very good feel of a tube amp.With the diversity of this unit ,you can get a vast amount of different tones from your guitar.It is probably one of the best built pedals out there.

        hard to imagine better OD or Dist units!

        Comments about Ibanez TK999OD Tube King Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        If this unit is half the quality and tone of the heavier dist red HT it is a 5 star choice. I was blown away by the TK999HT red box and I want this OD asap. These puppies are amazing quality and tone, and this is a HIGH current tube compared to anything else that uses a tube, someone keeps tagging it wrong, or the one reviewer who was obviously using the wrong power supply. These are high current 12v 400mA draws, no brick or avg wart can supply them! Current is stepped up to 100v inside which is rather amazing in a floor pedal. Tube King rules and Ibanez has a new fan!

        Nice addition to my pedal board

        Comments about Ibanez TK999OD Tube King Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I use a Fender Superchamp, and/or a Line 6 Spider III. Works well with both on their clean channels. Priced right to try with a solid state amp. It's an extra pre amp tube for the Superchamp. Own it only 4 months, no complaints.Helped dial in the sound I was looking for.
