It costs more to produce, and it sounds better.

Indeed, However you can get a TS-9 modified to be exactly like the VINTAGE TS-808's which are the most sought after overdrive ever, and the mod plus ts-9 costs about twenty dollars less than the 808 and sounds better than the 808 re=issue because the re-issue isnt true vintage spec.

I have a modded TS-9.... My MAIN OVERDRIVE even before my amp.. love it to death

ts-9 gives a chunkier "metal" sound.

808 is lovely vintage articulated

ts7, no.

^Lol, what're the TS7's actually like? I've never tried one, and they aren't mentioned too much...
