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.

Only on UG would I say I got engaged and bought a jet city and get congratulated on the amp

Why is modding it to an 808 pointless?

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