I ran this little monster through an original 1965 Fender Pro Reverb while hosting a blues jam. I not only got to hear myself through it at stage volume, but I was also able to hear a number of great guitarists playing through it. With my trusty Peavey HP Special CT, I dialed in the “Up Jimmy 84” setting, one of the suggested settings that came with the unit. After some level adjustments it yielded gobs of creamy sustain. The buzzword for the evening was “lush!”
The TS9DX Flexi-4X2 is true bypass, built like a tank and takes a 9V battery or adapter. The knobs consist of Drive, Level, Mode and Tone, along with the added toggle switch. My solos sliced through the mix with a luscious warmth, and the lack of harsh tones was amazing. It offered a variety of tonal colors and received the distinction of being one of the few stompboxes that will remain on my pedalboard for a very long time.
