  • ts-9 or 808

    Hi guys, I tried out a 808 today and I really liked it. However I got told the ts-9 is better and its cheaper.

    Which would work best with a engl fireball?

    I like the Boss SD-1 more than both of those.

      They're basically the same. The 808 is what SRV used so it's more expensive.

        See if you can find a Texas Deuce best 808 I have used with a boost.

          I have a fireball 100 and an 808 and they pair just fine. theyre both damn near the same thing though. I eally like the footswitch on the 808 if it means anything, very smooth, not a hard ass click. Although to be honest sometimes i feel like i dont even need the 808 on the fireball, its so tight!

            I think a TS9 has a little more gain than an 808. If price is a factor it's not hard to find an 808 clone for cheaps

              Oh yeah, what do you want it for? If you have a fireball im guessing you wanna just boost it hard. all volume little or no gain settings? In which case gain isnt really that important.

                  The only difference between the TS808 and TS9 is a couple of components in the output buffer, so is almost inconsequential. You could almost certainly find more of an audible difference between two TS808s because of normal part tolerances. Get the cheaper one and change two parts if you really feel the need.

                      Well I have a wylde over drive, and I feel it just isn't doing what I want it to, so I want to get one of these to push the tubes more and get a nice crisper sound.

                      On another site someone suggested the bad monkey.

                        I use a bad monkey with my overdrive channel. A ts just doesn't keep the bass up. Thoroughly recommend it, although its nothing like a ts really.

                            Is the bad money as good as the ts?

                              TS-9 has a little more gain. The 808 has more low end.
