Im thinking of buying the ts9 tubescreamer to use with my peavey vypyr 75w (solid state). This amp already has a model of the tubescreamer built in which denotes it well but I haven't used the tubescreamer itself before so will it be an improvement or should I just stick with the one in the amp? (I play a standard MIM strat)

well the only way to tell is to go try a tubescreamer yourself and see if you like it.

Gibson Les Paul Special
Fender Koa Stratocaster
Korg Pitchblack

why do you want one as a pedal anyway.

By that, i mean doesnt the Vypyr have enough low gain models as it is. If all you want is a clean boost then save money and get a Bad Monkey.

I wanted to know if the pedal sounded better then the one on the amp.

If you buy the pedal then you can use the effect anywhere.
If you don't you will need the Vypyr. And you won't be using it all the time. Because it's not always possible to bring it with you.

EDIT: Or I might break the amp.

In my opinion, if your Vypyr already models it well, but you still want a good OD, get the MXR GT-OD. Much better than the Tubescreamer in my opinion. And it's a custom shop pedal.

What would you be using the TS for? Overdriven sounds or tightening your sound?

I don't think I'd use a TS9 with an amp like that... I mean, it's called the TUBE Screamer... it wouldn't do you much good since you don't have any tubes for it to make scream.

Most people use an od pedal to either boost their sound for solos or to drive thier amp to give it more gain then it can normaly put out. If your amp already reach a ridicolous amount of gain and really dosn't need that much boosting. So really imo there's no point of buying one.

He meant if TS is planning to use it as a clean boost, which would do next to nothing on a modelling amp. If he is planning to use it as an overdrive, the Vypyr already has the model, so unless the real thing is waaay better, it would be pointless.

GT-OD blows IMO. And Dunlop Custom Shop doesn't mean **** except for the rack wah.

You really don't know what a Tubescreamer does, do you?


Most people I know who use one run it with the Gain low and the Level high. T TS is best for pushing the preamp and making it drive the amp harder, rather than clipping the signal themselves.


Anyway, with the Vypyr it probably won't sound very good at all (their preamps are not designed to be boosted), but it's worth having an OD pedal in your arsenal if you're planning on buying a valve amp anytime soon.

Have a look at the Danelectro 'Cool Cat' Transparent Overdrive and the Digitech Bad Monkey for cheap, excellent pedals.

Of course you can use it as a clean boost but he was under the impression that an OD like the TS9 actually drives the tubes hard which is simply a myth.
