I have recently bought an Ibanez Tube Screamer. I was wonder if the pedal will work with my Vox Valvetronix. Would the single tube work with the TS?

p.s. I ordered a TS, so I don't have it yet. I would also like if anyone can give me tips to get the best sound.

A tube screamer will get you that great "light" distortion when used with any classic vintage style "heavy" amp. like a JCM900/800 or a Vox30

It's not a full tube amp.

edit: The TS is an 808

umm it will but it wont sound good
The TubeScreamer is an Overdrive it is meant to be used in tube amps NOT SS or Hybrid amps but you still can use it in your amp but it wont do anything good.

good call on the 808, much warmer and more natural sounding than the TS9

It's called a tube screamer because it's suppose to have a great vintage tube sound, not because it's made for a tube amp. It would sound good with any amp provided the amp sounds good without it, regardless of it being SS or some sort of hybrid.
