Fellow cathbard, interpretation has made huge progress lately, but it still begins by reading. I wasn't talking about TS7, but about DS7.

You're not quite an examiner, are you?
Have you dismantled the DS7? Where does the distortion come from? A chip, perhaps?

I'm afraid the Tone-Lok has long gone from Ibanez's offer, perhaps replaced by the contemporary TS 808, who is slightly different from a TS9... only using better components.

Not quite. The TS9 is an analogue effect, while the TS7 (correctly DS7) is a digital distortion pedal, whose sound is miles away - in the wrong direction - from the fabulous TS9.

They might have one or two pins entering one or two tiny holes in the headstock, on their back. It's not the tuning peg moving around which causes the de-tuning, but the mechanism itself. You gotta...
