Gotta go with five stars on this one. It was a little pricey even when they knocked $10.00 off at the register. The list price is 109.99 I believe. But it has definately been worth it. It is the classic rock sound I have been looking for.

3 knobs, for tone, drive and level. It has a creamy drive to it. Definiately the classic rock and roll sound.. It has a 9v battery or it can be hooked up to an ac adapter. I believe the boss adapters work for this model.
I've used it with a standard strat, and an ES-335. Both of them are great. I play it through a forty watt peavey delta blues. I played it through a fender black face and it was unbelievable. It only pushes the tubes. It isn't a multi-effects pedal but if you are looking for that classic sound a la SRV or Jimi it's definately the right choice.
Plug and play ease with a single light that shows on when lit or off when off.
I haven't had it very long but it is built from a big ol chunk of metal so I can only imagine it will continue to wear well. I'll let you know if it falls apart.
If you like a tone and gain boost, here it is!
Where Obtained: Used
Volume, Tone and Gain. I modified this unit by changing the chip to a RC4558 and resistors to a TS808 circuit and just dig it. It sounded good before the change but has better after.
I love the clean overdrive this box can bring. Great for all styles of music requiring a boost here and there with tone and dynamics.
Turn the knobs and dial the sound.
I've kicked it, dropped with minor repairs. It is always good to go.
This is a great effect if your'e looking for the great
sound of a distorted tube amp. so what are you
waiting for? go get one!
Price: $99.00 (new)
It has treble, drive, and level/output knobs. It is
battery powered or AC powered.
I use this effect with my Ibanez RG and with a Fender
concert tube head. I find that all though my amp is all
ready tube and has a foot switch using the amps
distortion and the tube screamer together is like
putting my amp in to Woop A-- gear! and i can also
switch to the clean channel on my amp and use the
tube screamer to get a little cleaner deep sounding
It is very easy to use theres only three knobs and you
just "set it and forget it"
Its very durable ive droped it tripped over it and had
other people walk by and step on it and there isn't
even so much as a scuff.
I bought this at the local pawn shop for $35(I can't help repeating that!)because the guy thought he had the inferior TS7. I had to try it out on an Epi guitar through some cheap practice amp, and even that way, I could tell it was something worth having, at least at that price. Once I got it home, I realized that it was worth full price and more. Great overdrive pedal, with the classic tones it is famous for.

Three knobs, what else do you need? Well, except for the maybe an extra gain boost?
First off, unless I got a dud(possible, for $35), or maybe because I also have a Digitech Metal Master, this doesn't seem like much distortion. What I get from it, however, is absolutely perfect overdrive. Warm, silky leads, a la Santana, come straight out of this thing. It's thick, rick, creamy tones, perfect for cutting through the mix without killing the first three rows.
The box was disintegrated, but the pedal is pristine. Heavy, solid, I expect to be using this for the next decade or two.
Even though this pedal was the highest
priced distortion pedal in the store,
it was definitly worth buying.none of
the other distortion pedals even came
Price: $120.00 (new)
Where Obtained: daddy's junky music stores
It has 3 settings(drive,tone,and level)
and its both AC powered and battery powered.
I use a peavey blazer 158 and
a gibson les paul.and this pedal
gives me the perfect distortion.
Well theres only 3 settings.
how hard could it be?
Its in a steel case,its VERY sturdy

Drive, Tone and Level settings. Can be powered by either a regular 9 volt battery (battery space is on the bottom), or can be powered by a 9 volt Ac adapter.
I play this through a Fender Telecaster Plus, a bunch of other effects, and through a vintage Ross 80w. This is the perfect tone i want. i have the drive at about 1 o clock, the tone at 12 and the level at 11 and it fits right in for me. it sounds great with the old Ibanez Sonic Distortion.
3 knobs, one is volume. You figure it out.
The Ts-9 is from the old Ibanez "9" series, when they were built in the steel cases (not this plastic s--- now). it scratches nicely, but hey, that makes it look more loved.
