Pedals become classics for a reason. The Ibanez Tubescreamer TS808 is probably the most popular pedal of all time, and it is also the framework for several other well-loved pedals. With the Tradition, I’m passing on the story with some of my favorite plot twists. A lot of players like to leave the gain super low on a TS, so I extended the gain range to allow cleaner drive settings than a stock TS808 while also adding some extra gain to the end of the dial. I’ve done the popular “amp-like” mod that changes the standard symmetrical diode arrangement to give more volume and make the clipping less compressed and also some adjustments to decrease the noise floor. A FAT knob allows you to subtlety cut, retain, or boost the low end fullness to fit your needs and the linear TONE knob offers a wider span of adjustment. No TS style pedal would be complete without the famous 4558 chip. The 4558 is mounted in a socket, meaning no soldering is necessary if you want to experiment with your favorite op-amp chip. This pedal is also handwired for true bypass switching, meaning the pedal will not alter your bypassed tone.
