An overdrive and boost circuit in one convenient pack.
For over 30 years the Ibanez TS808 Tube Screamer has been one of the most popular overdrive pedals in the world. The unmistakable little green stomp box has been a perennial favorite, cherished by rock's most celebrated guitarists for its warm, creamy tone and unequivocal responsiveness. Now Ibanez has expanded the palette of "The Screamer" with the new TS808DX.
Simply put, this new version is two pedals in one: A true TS808 Overdrive, featuring the JRC4558D IC for that signature soft, subtle clipping sound, and a boost circuit, capable of adding up to 26dB at the tap of a switch. The pedal incorporates two individual, true-bypass switches for total independent control, allowing the Overdrive and the Booster to be used separately or in conjunction with each other. Add the Boost for a few extra dB while playing through the Overdrive circuit, or just engage the booster on its own for that little extra lift while playing clean.
A toggle switch allows for the choice of placing the Boost Pre or Post the Overdrive section and a rear panel switch offers the option of 9-volt or 18-volt operation, It's the Screamer you know and love, taken to a whole new level.

Comments about Ibanez Tube Screamer TS808DX Guitar Effects Pedal:
Tried this unit on a three channel amp with boost and gain built in. Sounded exactly the same. Tried it on three other amps, same thing. Unit works well on amps without master volume, gain, boost. Except for this units boost, I get more sustain out of way cheaper overdrive pedal.
