Ibanez Launches the Nu Tube Screamer

The very first compact guitar effect pedals to incorporate a Nutube directly into its circuitry.

Bensalem, PA (January 12, 2018) -- New for 2018, Ibanez is pleased to announce the release of the Nu Tube Screamer. This pairing of Ibanez’s Tube Screamer with Korg’s Nutube technology, has produced an overdrive with exceptional dynamics, improved sensitivity, and natural tube-like compression. For those familiar with the conventional TS808, the added warmth and amp-like quality of the Nu Tube Screamer will be immediately apparent.

The Ibanez Nu Tube Screamer is the very first compact guitar effects pedals to incorporate a Nutube directly into its circuitry. The Nutube is a revolutionary new take on the preamp tube that will allow for next level possibilities in the world of electronics. A Nutube draws far less power than a traditional vacuum tube and has a much longer lifespan of 30,000 hours. It accomplishes all of this while providing the same warmth and dynamics of conventional tubes.

Beyond the incorporation of the Nutube, the Nu Tube Screamer includes several new features designed to vastly widen the pedal’s tonal potential. A “mix” control was included to allow for balancing the clean and overdriven signal. With the “Mix” control rolled totally counter-clockwise, only the dry signal will be present making the Nu Tube Screamer ideal for double duty as a clean boost. The unit can also be run with either 9 or 18V power; 18V allows for increased headroom and gain.

The development of the Nu Tube Screamer involved a year of close collaboration with Korg, as well as our Artists, in order to ensure we created something with new tonal dimensions that also stays true to Tube Screamer’s legacy

Here’s a different way to unleash the beast within your tracks.

Welcome to another Dojo. Last month I explained in detail how to set up and use sidechain compression techniques to get that classic pop/EDM pumping sound on your rhythm guitar parts and other instruments in your mix. This time, we’ll use the same setup techniques but, instead of sidechaining a compressor, I’m going to show you the benefits of using a gate.
