    Default Tube Screamer 808 vs s9

    Hey, just picked up a Fender Blond Blues Junior...wow!! I cannot believe the sound I get with my Strat outta' this, but, I used to have a Ts9 tube screamer..and after the recent move to our new house...I can't find the freakin' thing ANYWHERE!! I think somehow it got tossed...we had many people helping us move so maybe it got tossed into...whatever!! Question is...I'm going to buy a new one...but should I get the Ts9 or the Ts808...I'll play them both at the Guitar Center first, but I would like some input because I value other opinions. Thanks. I guess I should say...I'm just looking for a bit more punch for solos, etc. Don't want to lose that great Fender tone I got goin' on right now. Thanks again!

    You might want to check out www.analogman.com. I guess new tubescreamers don't sound as good as they used to. This guy at Analogman takes new tubescreamers and modifies them so that they sound like tubescreamers USED to sound (like when SRV used them). I'm no expert on them but I was looking into buying one a while back and lots of people said great stuff about the modification.

    I know this doesn't answer your question about ts9 vs. ts808...

    I prefer the TS-9 over the 808 for a warmer tone at least with my gear. Both are good pedals for that extra punch. Try em both out and follow your ears.
