The TS808 is more vintage voiced and supposedly sounds a little warmer. The TS9 still isn't modern sounding but I believe it might have a little more gain. It's basically a step below the TS808. Although, both are good pedals to boost your tone.

i'd say the 808 is nicer than the 9, but look into the maxon, the maxon 808 to be precise.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

The Maxon is a more faithful reproduction of the original, a highly sought after pedal. The 808 is also true bypass while the 9 isn't so when you have it off your tone doesn't change.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

Having had a chance to try the TS9 along side several other overdrive pedals, I can honestly say the pedal I prefered most was.............the Digitech Bad Monkey.
You heard me.
I would strongly recommend you try it out before spending possibly hundreds on a tube screamer. Plus, this thing costs about fifty bucks.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

I have heard A LOT of people say the bad monkey kicks ass, I haven't had a chance to try it, though.

You really should. Digitech got it right with that pedal.

^ aye, I see them everywhere, but I always have something I want to try out more (normally that I don't see everywhere), so it always gets pushed to the back of the try-out queue, lol.
