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.

Watched all the great demos of great players who can make anything sound amazing. This just didn't do much for me. Seemed like I got one with excessive noise. I tried to isolate it with different amps separate from everything else and always got a high noise floor. Sent back no hassle. Thanks MF for great service. I still have to recommend this pedal because it is after all the iconic Ibanez tube screamer.

      Comments about Ibanez Tube Screamer Mini Guitar Effect Pedal:

      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.

              This is a great overdrive! Don't let the small footprint fool you, it's got everything it's big brother has! It's really versatile, and is just the right thing for my rig and sound. I'm really glad I picked this up. If you're thinking of getting it, just do it!

                              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.

                              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.

                                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.
