an overdrive pedal that actually has a vaccuum tube built into it, so you get REAL tube tone, not just simulated tube tone.

of course, the best pedal in the world can't help a terrible amp, but this pedal is supposedly pretty good on most amps for most types of overdrive.

Great pedal, I own one and love it to death.

Just don't think you'll be able to play heavy metal with it even while it's gain knob is at 10. It's OD, not distortion.
Looking for my India/Django.

it's not meant to be the primary source of distortion/overdrive, but rather to boost an already distorted signal for leads, solos, etc.

It actually does NOT use tubes.

nor does it scream at you





but it does kick your amp up a notch (this generally works much better with a tube amp)

Theres no tubes in it like allready mentioned, but you can get overdrive pedals that use actual vacuum tubes.
Though its not like they're the holy grail of tone, its all subjective and I personally don't mind some colouring of the tone if it still sounds good (anything changes your tone anyway....)

I cant find tubes in any of mine...

Those boutique OD pedals that cost like $500 just make up for what your amp lacks. If you have a descent tube amp there's no need to get such an expensive OD pedal IMO.

well if you've allready bought a $3000 boutique amp you might as well get the matching pedal

a tubescreamer is an ibanez overdrive pedal. technically a maxon overdrive but sold as ibanez.

an overdrive is a distortion pedal, really. very low gain though, generaly used to give cranked tube amps a little extra push.

Are the Ibanez still made by Maxon? I thought that was only back the 70s/80s?

theres 3 gazillion tubescreamer clones out there anyway (Fulltone Fulldrive is probably the most famous one, but a bunch of those cheapo chinese ones with the plastic enclosures aren't that bad, even the good original type JRC4558 chip there sometimes, durability might not be perfect but if you bother to move it to a different enclosure.... you might get lucky if you know what you're looking at)

if you want tubescreamer that does actually scream, you can mod it. damn, those things are awesome...

I have a reissue TS-808 modded by Analog Mike and it is the ultimate Tube Screamer. But it can't touch my Lovepedal Eterninty. Actually have 5 overdrives on my baord right now, 2 Eternities, the Analogman 808 w/ Brown mod, a Lovepedal COT 50 and a PedalWorx Texas Tour Pro. I also use an Xotic RC Booster which can add OD sound and drive your tubes but I don't really consider it an OD.

Handsdown nothing touchs the Eternities IMO. Haven't tried the Centaur though, I was about to buy that next on my quest for perfect tone but was blown away by the sweetness my first Eterninty provided. So I had a second built but with a double gain pot, this one can hit amp-like distortion almost.

I am an overdrive wh0re.

FWIW, I only thought the clean boost capabilities were really special on that pedal. Anything else it does can be done by pedals costing half as much IMO. Overhyped, overpriced for what it is. I'm not saying it's not a really nice pedal with many good sounds to be had, but all of the comments about it being so incredibly unique and it being the be all, end all OD are just rubbish. I still need to try an Eternity
