There isn't much difference between the TS7 and TS9. The TS9 just looks so sexy.

+1, there almost is no difference at all, and by changing 2 capacitors in the circuit or something daft like that, you basically have TS-808
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

so do those 2 capacitors change the sound enough so that a ts7 doesnt sound as good as a ts808?

oops, i meant resistors. but yeah, read the link redh0tchilip3pp posted, it'll explain.

so in that tutorial you're basically making the Hot mode into a TS9 mode?

No, i think what its saying is that Hot mode basically is the same as a TS9. The tutorial is changing it to TS808 specs.

ah i see.
is the mod really noticable?

Not that much really. There isn't much difference between the 7, 9, and 808.

Well, by all means, mod it instead of getting the store-bought reissue TS808. I've compared the two side by side, and they're practically identical. So if you want that specific 808 sound and not the TS7 sound, mod it. There are other things you could do to it that would change the sound more dramatically, but that could lead you down a long, solder-smoke filled DIY road. Which is fun, but distracting from actually playing guitar.

alright so there are two settings on the TS7, there's TS9 and Hot Mode.
doing the mod will in turn make the TS9 setting into TS808 setting and then the Hot Mode will put the Hot Mode on the now TS808 right?

See, the thing is...
that changes it to a modern 808...and the vintage 808 circuit would do mayer better.
