NAMM '11-Ibanez TS9B Bass Tube Screamer & More FX
January 24, 2011
PG's Chris Kies is On Location at the 2011 NAMM Show where he visits the Ibanez booth. In this segment, we get to hear about the new 9-series pedals--TS9B Bass Tube Screamer, BB9 Bottom Booster, JD9 Jet Driver.
The TS9B is equipped with controls to allow bassists to produce the sound they want while still maintaining the feel of the Tubescreamer. Experimenting with the mix and tone controls allows for creation of a limitless number of sounds. Players can get a tight, fuzzy sound with mix control or a mid-scooped, funky sound with 2-band control.
The Ibanez BB9 is a booster that provides a fat bottom end and a powerful sound. This pedal is designed to help clean tones reverberate even more and bring more intensity to a player's sound. It is a true bypass stompbox.
The Ibanez JD9 produces a unique sound reminiscent of a high-grade handcrafted effects pedal. From piercing distortion to the warm crunch of a tube amp, this pedal features a wide variety of drive control options. The mid control is capable of producing a vast range of sounds from American hard rock to British heavy metal. The pedal is also designed with True Bypass to keep changes in sound when the pedal is off to a minimum.
