As far as this pedal goes, it's a great value. I, personally, love the voicing of it. It's a bit of a hybrid between the TS-9 and the 808. It does the job of the TS-9 very well, boosting an overdrive channel, but it also does a good job crunching up a clean channel. I use it with a Mesa Dual Rectifier, which is bass heavy and lacks mids at times.This pedal really tightens up the bass and adds the mids I was missing. It's all about the sound and for that I'd give this a 9/10.

I could find no bad reviews for this pedal. However, when I hooked it up to my Silvertone twin twelve, it went from warm classic tones to something that sounded like an old transistor radio. The sound quality vanished. Maybe just a bad combination. Used with American Strat with Hot Rails at the bridge. Tried different pedal arrangements but nothing.

      Comments about Ibanez Tube Screamer Mini Guitar Effect Pedal:

      Bought it few days ago.
      at a glance, it might seem to you like a cute little toy- in fact, it is so far from being one.
      This OD is versatile, proper for a wide range of styles, especially for Blues and classic Hard Rock.
      When playing with it, it provides a warm and rich sound, which sounds smooth, bright and very fluidic.
      For those of you who are already familiar with the TS, the Mini's sound quality really resembles the TS9.
      Another important thing to bear in mind is that these pedals are manufactured in Japan, i.e Ibanez's original domestic factory, and thus a top quality of production is guaranteed.
      one of the best buys I have done till now when it comes to guitar equipment, and in terms of price-for-quality ratio, its probably takes the 1st place.

              Comments about Ibanez Tube Screamer Mini Guitar Effect Pedal:

              I bought this as a backup to my TS9DX, which is modified to the same circuit as the original TS-808 including vintage JRC4558 op amp chip. I did an A/B test with both pedals and could not hear any difference whatsoever. The Tube Screamer mini frees up space on your pedal board and looks really cool as a mini version of the TS-808.

              Comments about Ibanez Tube Screamer Mini Guitar Effect Pedal:

              Very small. If you don't have a lot of room on your board I guess it would be ok. I sent mine back and got the TS9 because of the stability of the pedal.
