The Ibanez Tube Screamer has been the last word in overdrive for decades. To celebrate its 40th birthday, two new versions of the pedal are emerging. One, a limited edition ruby red remake of the classic. The other, a reinterpretation of the original, made in collaboration with Vemuram.
How do you improve on perfect? Ibanez has the answer. They’ve announced a limited edition remake and a reimagining of their iconic pedal, the Tube Screamer.
The ruby version of the pedal is only a cosmetic alteration. Its analog circuity and ever so simple design – featuring knobs for overdrive, tone and level – has been preserved for this limited edition TS808 model.
The TSV808 model was developed in conjunction with Japanese boutique manufacturer, Vemuram. It combines the customary mid forward character of the Tube Screamer with the Vemuram Jan Ray’s tone, which is reminiscent of the Fender’s Blackface amps of the 1960s.
