I used and loved the Ibanez TS808 for a long time, however recently I had a TS7 modded by Joe Bodenhamer @ Bodenhamer Electronics and it sounds exponentially better. I recommend getting the 'chaos mod'. He basically tweaks/changes some things so you get a fuller, richer sound with more flexibility.

He also lowers the high-pass filter so more lows pass through, while still maintaining the tight, crisp attack that Tube Screamers are known for. I've never run into one person who didn't love what he did to their pedals. I'm not affiliated with him whatsoever, I'm just stating what me and my band-mate use.

I second this.
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.

Not meaning to hi-jack the thread, but I have a question about a tubescreamer and I figured I'd try asking it here. I have a JCM900 2100 stack and I'm needing something to boost it up a little bit for solos, or leads. Which tubescreamer should I buy? I want it to boost the voume up a little, and maybe add a touch more gain. I also dont want to sacrifice my amp's tone at all. I love the way my amp sounds for rhythm, it's perfect, but thats with the gain maxed. I need something that will just distinguish it a little from the rhythm when I go into a solo. Which model would you guys reccomend for that?

Really depends on how you want to pay.

You could spend 50-odd bucks and get a TS7 modded to TS808 specs
If you want to spend 100, get a TS9
If you want to spend 150 or more, get a TS808 or a Maxon or something.

And, it's usually a bad idea to downgrade to a lower quality pedal when one is used to having a higher quality OD.
So, going from TS to BM is a bad idea.

Yeah, but which one would work best for what I said? I dont want to spend $150 on the TS808 if the TS9 could do the job. I want to completely keep my amps' tone, I just want a bit more volume and a bit more something to distinguish the tone when I turn the pedal on.

I've had many tube screamers. A couple were Ibanez, 1 bad monkey, 1 was a Maxon, and I can't remember the brands of most of the others off the top of my head. My alltime favorite tube screamer clone was by www.cmatmods.com and it's called the tube slammer. Not only was his TS clone the cheapest, but it was also sounded best. You have to put up with the fact that it doesn't come with instructions and the paintjob sucks but it's a small price to pay for the tone this pedal will give you.

Wow. That sounds really, really good.

I might actually have to look into one of these.

I got rid of my TS-9 after using the Bad Monkey. One of the guys I jam with prefers the BM to his TS-808.
