Talking NPD- Tubescreamer

New Pedal Day!!!

I picked this up a week ago, so I had time to play around with it.





I was going to get a Joyo Vintage OD, but this came up used for $50, so I decided to get it instead.

Very good pedal, I just use it as a light overdrive and as a little gain boost, but there are many uses for it. Now I see why it is highly recommended. Only thing I don't like is the LED. If you look at it on an angle, you can't tell if it's on or not. This isn't a problem on a dark stage, but if you have an outdoor gig, then even a small amount of sunlight will make in unnoticible. Since it is so dull, I might replace it eventually. I'll probably mod it to TS-808 specs too.

Overall, great pedal. Every guitarist needs some sort of tubescreamer.

nice grab for $50!!

wicked popular pedal to have modded, and when you do mod it you can get a nice LED light put in it, i agree that the stock light is kind of a pain.

How are these compared to an older MXR Dist+?

I agree that on this style of Ibanez pedal, the LED is not very easy to see. I have a CS9 chorus that is the same way.

Modding it to 808 is pointless. Replacing the LED with one you can see would be time better spent.

Why is modding it to an 808 pointless?

I haven't tried it, but they're higher gain than a tubescreamer.
