Keeley's take on the Holy Grail of Tube Screamers!
Though the Ibanez TS808 is a legendary Tube Screamer, Robert Keeley felt there were areas that need improvement, namely increasing its limited bass response and limited gain range. With the TS808 Mod Plus Tube Screamer with True Bypass, that's exactly what you get, plus a Texas Instruments RC4558 chip like those used in early TS808 units and increased transparency over the stock model.
The bass response of the TS808 Mod Plus Tube Screamer is tightened up, cleaning up the muddiness that many TS808 users have complained about. The gain range is tweaked as well, allowing the pedal to clean up nicely at lower ranges and drive harder when cranked, plus plenty of sweet spots in between. Other upgrades include a gold chip socket, increased control and response from the tone control, and a fuller low-end sound.
Keeley also improves parts of the FET switching so that you have a better, clearer tone, both when the pedal's on and off. All the factory solder joints are checked so you won't have power supply problems anytime soon. Metal film resistors are used to reduce noise in the system as well. True bypass.

first and foremost it is better than the new Ibanez Ts 808 it gives you a finer gain control better EQ in my opinion the pedal sounds better when the the level is set at either 12 o clock or after having the level set up really brings it outBravo
The stock Ibanez was a midrange-humpy, no-bass, muddy mess before we got it modded. The improvement was HUGE when it came back from Keeley. Still a Tube Screamer, in that it still has that singing midrange, but it doesn't dominate the whole sound of the pedal no more. The bass stays mostly intact when the pedal is engaged. This is a great mod. Shouldn't have added the "true-bypass" switch, though. "True-bypass" is BS, and it costs more. Just put a buffered pedal on your pedalboard, such as any Boss pedal (for me a tuner) and your tone will be mostly intact when all pedals are off. If SRV were still alive, he'd probably use these modded TS's!
