Tube Screamer TS808 / TS9

All-time classic overdrive circuit. Love it or hate it, you can't ignore it. Thoroughly ripped off time and time again for 'boutique' pedals - it must be doing something right.

Kit comes with the parts to make a TS808 or TS9.

Extra pads to allow standard symetrical or optional asymetrical clipping.

Optional board-mounted SPDT toggle switch for a 'more bass' mod. This can be ON-ON for one extra setting, or ON-OFF-ON for two.

Supplied with the correct W-taper tone pot with centre detent (or 'snook' as one customer described it).

Kit includes: PCB, all components, hook-up wire, 3PDT footswitch for true bypass, jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, LED. Enclosure (pre-drilled) is optional and will take a battery. Does not include knobs.

Difficulty: Medium

PCB size: 50 x 37mm

Knobs required: 3

Enclosure: 1590B

Power and Signal pads match the Direct Connect 3PDT Daughterboard

Check Specials for powder-coated enclosure availability.

Rewarding build 5 product stars
"I had never used a soldering iron or gone near any electrical components until this build but I managed to complete the build and learn useful information. It was not as easy as some reviews suggested but I love using a pedal that I built! I will be doing more and it has gotten me thinking about building my own." Matthew McGeechan - 08/12/2014
Super tone 5 product stars
"Great pedal. Just the perfect tone, much nicer than a digital effects unit. Quite easy to build - haven't touched a soldering iron for many years but no problems if you're patient! Good support for the couple of questions I had! For the money, you can't go wrong." Iain - 02/24/2013

High Quality, Low Noise Success 5 product stars
"Granted, this is not my first build as I have a degree in electronics and have been modding pedals for years. I wanted a Tube Screamer clone with flexibility and options and this one delivered. High quality components, straight fwd instructions and great results. I will be ordering another kit soon!" JCM - 11/18/2012
