Ibanez Tube Screamer Pro ts-808 80's (VINTAGE)

There were some TS-808s made in the 1979 period, mostly for other than USA markets, that came in a narrower box. These have a bottom plate that unscrews to change the battery like an MXR pedal, no plastic battery cover. This narrow TS-808 had a different circuit. It uses two 1458 chips which are the 1st version of the low-tech dual op-amp. Also the LEVEL knob on these is labeled BALANCE and the external 9V power jack is on the side next to the input jack. It used the same case as the earlier OVERDRIVE and OVERDRIVE-II pedals which used stomp switches. These had a circuit board labeled OD-801....banez reissued the narrow TS-808 as the "35th Anniversary TS-808" in 2014. It is a very accurate reissue except they used JRC4558D chips instead of the 1458 chips. We have a mod to make these the same as the originals. (Het gaat hier dus om een oude uit eind 70, begin 80tiger jaren pedaal)
