Dating ibanez ts9
The main differences from the were a few resistors in the output section presumably to make the pedal mate better with transistor ampsdifferent pots design, not value and op-amp. G MoneyFeb 25, Released inthis is a TS with three added modes.
Essentially a TS-9 with a pre-distortion mid boost, painted dark metallic green. The Edge from U2 uses a TS9 for most of his overdrive tones, as do countless other famous rock and blues players.
The battery covers had never been changed since the original TS Email dating pune kothrud Page Email this Page. Here are the bottoms of the four different TS9s. AlienFreak69Feb 25, I too find the "vintage" dating ibanez ts9 kinda hard to swallow when used to refer to stuff that I sold to people during the eighties.
All TS9s with the CE are reissues. Also a capacitor was added to the back of the board the only component ever used on the back of a tube screamer board. This is to help with the switching circuit and should not affect the sound.
Is there a way by serial number to date Ibanez Pedals?
I have also seen a Ts9 chip, caps dated and green resistors with the serial number and a silver label. They lose the sweet tone which is the reason to use a tube screamer, though it will sound good in a bedroom it may get very muddy on stage or recording with a band. Alright so apparently Im NOT ok dating ibanez ts9 not knowing.
Generally, the Ibanez stuff was very good, trouble free and the Digital Delay stomp box I have had since the mid eighties has never given me any trouble. It looks fine except the color seems a bit off. All TSs and other L and 10 series pedals used cheap jacks and pots which were mounted to the boards instead of the cases, so they often break or fall apart and cannot be fixed like a hand-made pedal ts9 and ts are all handmade, hand wired parts.

All the boards, connectors, and cables inside add a lot of complexity and there are many things to break. Almost all TS's sound great. Note the box has bar code info, this will not be found on the original boxes. Your name or email address: We also need to hot-wire the circuit so it is always ON.
The pots are different from the ones in the later pedals they are the open design, rather than enclosedbut aside from those you could easily turn a far cheaper TS-9 into an Do you already have an account? Turn the gain top left knob almost all the way down maybe on 1 and turn the tone middle knob down almost all the way too, and crank up the output volume top right to the desired boost level.
Electronic components in the pedal will fail. Linear Mode Linear Mode.
In late the largest change to the TS9 ever took place. They even used the old manual dated to confuse us more!
Original TS-808 data
Is there any sure-fire visual way to tell besides serial numbers? The main change in the TS-9 circuit is in the output section. Do you change the capacitors or other components in your mod?
Quote message in reply? There are several circuit boards inside, they seem to be generic and several different effects can be built using the same boards they are mostly empty boards!
