We all know the Tube Screamer because of Ibanez and while Ibanez may have the grand recognition, Maxon is the real deal. Maxon created what we originally know as the Tube Screamer. They created the OD-808, which Ibanez licensed and branded as theTS-808 Tube Screamer and this pedal, the OD-9, which Ibanez calls the TS-9. What is the difference? Quality! Maxon uses the same, premium quality components they've always used and Ibanez uses cheaper, lesser quality and often different components that can be obtained for less cost then utilizes a cheaper build prices with low quality LED Lights that are hard to tell if they are even on where Maxon's shine bright like the premium star they are. If you want the real deal, you want a Maxon. Buy this pedal and you will never regret it. Maxon pedals cost more but there is a reason for that. They are much higher quality.
