TS9 vintage 1983 JRC 4558D

By romain27, 03/12/2014
Ideal material to attack a very good tube amp


3 pots easy to adjust
put the gain at 10:30
to level at 14.00
set the tone at 11:30

With that you bump the ideal medium for solos or all blues sounds


Are legendary
Drive that does not distort the sound of the guitar or amp (ideal)
Its to boost the amp, give body to the sounds


Always copied never equaled
For me the best drive I've ever used
Caution must buy a TS9 with the original JRC4558D chip, because the grain copies or reissus has nothing to do especially if you use it with a good tube amp.
There is nirvana

A little bit of legend

By -Livingroom-, 03/03/2014
Analog overdrive pedal format classical guitar type boss. Jack connector, standard 9v supply, rackmount or non editable model. The whole is placed in a sturdy metal case. Jack in, jack out, and roll youth!


A tone, a drive and volume, nothing too bad, after the effect is very accurate, which induces specific settings to find a sound that mixes well with the general mix (you can quickly fall into a shrill sound or aggressive).


This is a nice overdrive, less warm than 808 ts (and incidentally cheaper too), with a nice bump in the mids and tight bass that suddenly are reduced compared to the untreated. Works very well with guitars of course, but also keyboards (rhodes particular). It is very good for its driven gently, or upstream of a real distortion, at the time it used to change the eq for drilling during lead passages. We can blame him a simple tone instead of eq fuller, but it allows a large number of shades.


I kept some time before selling because it does not suit the band's sound in which I was (at the time I did not have my home studio or my personal projects otherwise I would have kept! ). Qualities may be its shortcomings, namely its sound will not suit all styles, even in the blues. This remains an excellent pedal, cheaper but less friendly than its predecessor, which must be done to get the best!

Transformer amp cheap!

Overdrive pedal with drive, tone and level.

9V power supply standard.


It is fairly simple to use as delirium is always to know the measure with something else in its settings.

Attention to it can generate buzz especially vintage.


It's simple you have a sea amps ù ^ m $! You want better sound with a warm drive, which will give a small lamp next to your old marshall 30 watt transistor war. Take it!

All blues players I part is the drive to have.

Do not expect a distortion to the brutaldeathdouble trashmetal undercore is not made for it. Although coupled with another distortion, this tends to drive round your sound.

This gives a little crunch, just enough to get a blues sound without being rough (not replace it after touching anyway).

Coupled with an AC30 + compressor + a p'tite reverb, it gives you a sound that will prevent you from scratching your release for two hours. Mellow sound with sustain, vintage grain. No matter if you are on strat on both LP sound.


It's been 6 months since I played with a vintage and I still enjoy.

It allows me to have the additional crunch the AC30C2 (I does not fully gain on the clean channel for effects). It is almost always walking again.

This is really a plus in your board.

Overdrive. Probably THE reference!


To use, you can not get any easier. Rules you rate'' crunch'' and tone.
Once you have your sound volume to the rules you there is no difference in volume pedal engaged / activated


The effect is nickel.
it is a very light crunch that appears when you attack the strings frankly, its a good rock.
PS: for metalheads, go your way, it is an overdrive!

When I play in a group, this is my main pedal: lespaul, ts, bassman

As advised by the greatest, I also tested this pedal in front of other pedals overdrive / distortion / fuzz for a little boost. It is true that it adds a little something.


I use it for about a year.
I have another overdrive (marshall bluesbraker, bluesdriver boss, and another which I do not remember the name)
The Tubescreamer is, by far, my favorite. The others are nice, but it was the most pleasant sound to my ears
