Big White Monkey Spider 808 vs the Ibanez TS9DX Turbo Tube Screamer

The other day while I was at Darren’s doing some videos, I thought I would like to see how the Big White Monkey Spider 808 Overdrive Pedal fared when it was put up against the much higher priced Ibanez TS9DX Turbo Tube Screamer.

Before we did this A/B comparison, I personally thought this might be an easy win for the Ibanez, but boy was I surprised at the results…

Okay, so enough talk, here’s the video… Darren is playing his MIJ Fender Stratocaster into a Peavey Delta Blues amplifier, the Spider 808 in the video is the newer version with the Hi Fi OP chip.

Ibanez TS9DX Turbo Tube Screamer – The Classic Reincarnated!

The Ibanez tube screamer is a classic, and could be called the ‘Father’ of overdrive pedals. Now this pedal, the Ibanez TS9DX Turbo Tube Screamer, is a made in Japan reissue and brings with it some new features that the original standard tube-screamer didn’t have, although I do like how it’s retained the traditional green and style of the original so you know immediately what it is.

So lets have a listen as Darren puts it through it’s paces. Playing his custom modified made in Japan E serial Fender Stratocaster through a Peavey Delta Blues amp.
