-is a TS808 really creamy, warm and smooth ?
-is it a very dynamic pedal, does it respond to my playing style, it it touch sensitive ?
-does it let the true tone of the guitar shine through, e.g. not all guitars sound similar through it ?
-does it also add some overtones (harmonics) ?


thanks alot guys !!

Well, it makes harmonics come out a lot brighter in my opinion, I used a Turbo one... it didn't really add much at all to my dismay, but I could definantly do some pick squeels on my strat with a lot more ease.

tube screamer seems better for a boost rather than a stand alone distortion.. but depends what your looking for.

I'd check out a BBE Green Screamer. It's supposed to be transparent and have a warmer, more natural sound than a TS808.
