    Yeah why would you bother with a clone... just get a proper TS or a mini / they’re about as cheap as pedals get. I’ve never heard a boutique TS ‘inspired’ pedal that sounded better than a meat and potatoes TS9...

    Ain't the Ibanez TS(808) itself sort of a (Maxon OD808) 'clone'?

    I dont agree here...

    Only a TS circuit does what a TS circuit does.

    Didn't say they were exact, I know they aren't, but they are in the same ball park; smooth low gain OD with a mid hump.

    They work very well, and are substantially less money.

    Nice demo! I think it sounds great. IMO, RYRA (Shane Logan) makes some great sounding pedals.

    Nice demo. That combo (AV '56, DRRI, and OD) work very well together!

    Just my two cents worth, I bought a Seymour Duncan 805 pedal sort of on a whim. I saw it cheap Craigslist and pounced. The three band eq makes it very versatile. You can roll back the mids, boost the mids; whatever you like. It seems to have more of a tonal range than my Ibanez TS5. Its an awesome Tube Screamer type pedal, I think of it as TS+

    Yeah! This is my favorite OD pedal. The gain range is bigger than any TS-variant, and the 3 band EQ (active) solves the 'huge mids' and 'missing bass' issues of most TS-based pedals.

    I picked up an SD-1 recently, not knowing it was a TS type pedal. So far I prefer it to my TS-9.

    It is but there is a difference in the clipping
    One is assymetrical and the other is symetrical.


    Gives a completely different feel and response. Both are good IMO and uniqu. I like and SD1 but I lile my TS9 better gor my taste.
