Originally released in the late 1970s, the Ibanez Tube Screamer is ubiquitous among guitar players — it’s easily one of the most popular stompboxes in the world. The limited-edition TS808 40th Anniversary Tube Screamer commemorates the birthday of this pedalboard staple.

If you've ever scoped out a pro pedalboard, then you've probably spotted the unmistakable TS808 Tube Screamer lurking in the signal chain. The original Tube Screamer propelled into fame when Stevie Ray Vaughan used it to craft his signature tone. Since then, countless renowned guitarists have benefited from the TS808’s smooth, full tone — in the style of overdriven tubes. So grab the limited-edition TS808 40th Anniversary Tube Screamer, and join the ranks of great guitarists who swear by the TS808.
Much of what makes the original Ibanez TS808 so smooth, sweet, and full is the JRC4558D IC chip that Ibanez spec'd it out with.

Blues to jazz to rock to anything else, you'll get all of that classic warmth with this limited-edition TS808.
