Dexter Mods Ibanez TS-9 ‘Dexter’s Flood’ Vintage Mod

TS9 Tube Screamer

TS9 Tube Screamer

When we think of the tubescreamer we cannot help but think of Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Stevie used an original TS9 and today we can all buy the re-issue TS9, but it’s different in many ways the SRV TS9.

The popular TS9 mod is the Dexter Mods 808 mod which recreates the vintage TS808 pedal in the TS9 and I have several happy customers who swear by this mod.

However, this does not accurately replicate SRV’s vintage pedal and I decided to find out why.

I recently got my hands on a stock original TS9 and went over each component to find which ones needed to be changed to best recapture the sound of the original.

I found the answer after much trial and error on my own re-issue TS9 and have come up with a pedal that almost exactly replicates the tone of the vintage original.

The mod consists of replacing key components of the re-issue with parts that were in the vintage TS9s.

The mod includes a 4558D op amp that is fitted in a socket so that it can be swapped with a 4558P op amp (supplied free with this mod).

As an option I can also do the 808 mod on your pedal – at present it will be fitted with the stock vintage settings but the winner of this auction can opt for the 808 mod AT NO CHARGE.

The mod includes an extra bright Green LED and a brand new 9 volt battery.

The mod is guaranteed. If there are any problems when you receive the pedal simply return to me, I’ll service it, send it back and refund your shipping costs.

Questions are welcome but please check the Dexter Mods FAQ here first.
