...that's stock on my pedal board.
(adjusts flame proof suit)
WHAT!!! And you call yourself a guitar player???
Just kidding.. I still have a stock one that I use to record with sometime. It's just the right sound by itself sometimes...
( I do have a Mod Plus Keeley that is on my board!!! I'm such a stuckup person):BEER
I had a stock one on my board for 8 years until...
I found this damn bulletin board. :moon
Now it's modded and shares time on my board with a Red Snapper.
I personally know at least two guitar players who use stock tubescreamers and sound fantastic, and I saw another one live this weekend. One of the top guitar players in New Orleans traded in his tube amp for a solid state with built-in effects and guess what? He still sounds great.
Let's face facts, in a loud, live situation, all of our audiophile ramblings mean exactly dick. And a tubescreamer sounds good.
Yesterday,I tuned the TS until it sounded identical to the boosted channel on my Two Rock,then I did an A/B with a friend who fancies himself a tone thug-he guessed wrong,it was the TS-9.I am such a dick...
I think stock ts-9's are great i also think the Boss SD-1 is a great pedal especialy for the money.
The guy from los lonely boys uses MIM strats into stock tube screamers
BOSS' version of the TS-9 (except w/asymmetrical clipping!).
I also don't feel the compulsion to sent off pedals to have extra holes drilled into them. I only mod things by necessity and there're plenty of pedals out there that sound great right out of the box!
I didn't know...
Compared an unmodded TS9 to an Analogman SilverMod TS9, top of the line guitar and amp in a house but with high volume...
Go down to your local moms and paps and get a TS9, you won't be missing anything other then the stuck up fason
Stock TS-9s are great. I only replaced it with a Maxon because I wanted a little more drive.
Please explain the expression "the stuck up fason"...What's a fason??
Maybe he meant facade?
I was thinking he meant Fashion myself
nothing wrong with a stock ts9. I'm using a Arion Tubulator myself!
I bought one of the first reissues. I modded it a long time ago, at least 7 years ago. I don't even remember exactly what I did to it. Mine sounded best with a different chip (was just a standard texas instrument OP amp).
The difference was not night and day. I really need to get another stock one to A/B it.
The stock ones do work well.
My philosiphy is: If I have to mod a pedal do change it dramatically, I'm probably using the wrong pedal. But then again I just like tinkering with stuff and do it for the fun of it.
Sorry, it can be confusing some times to think in one language and then translating it on the fly after a long day at work
In Hebrew slang the word "fason" means more or less a presented style of exaggerated elegant coolness LOL
The origin of the word is French, but the slang meaning is probably pure local
Well now that is just ridiculous. I wasn't going to waste my money on one of those... so I have a stock TS-5 on my board.
I'd pay for that....
I'm reporting all of you to the moderators. You are not supposed to be posting if you are playing something that is not boutique!
I have a modded one that is NOT on my board
