地铁令人惊叹的事

Ibanez TS9管尖叫超速踏板是那些吉他效果,已达到几乎神话地位之一. 这是一个不起眼的绿色脚盒,有三个小旋钮,但如果用对了人,它能带来巨大的冲击力. 蓝调传奇人物史蒂维·雷·沃恩和金属乐队首席吉他手柯克·哈密特等形形色色的吉他手都依赖它来创作他们的声音.

The first Tube Screamer was the TS808, produced in the 1970s. By the early ‘80s the TS9 was born, but it didn’t stick around long. From 1985 to 1992 Ibanez put out a few different Tube Screamers, but each was a shadow of the TS808 而且 TS9. I remember the TS5 Sound Tank in particular, an affordable little plastic version from the early '90s. The guitar world missed the classic, analog masterpiece. So, in 1992 Ibanez reissued the TS9, 而且 in 2004 the TS808.

As for me, I’ve had my TS9 reissue for over ten years. I’ve used it with various amplifiers, most recently my Marshall tube combo. 它的状态仍然很好,而且它是那种我根本无法放弃的踏板之一. 事实上,我把它列入了我的 基本吉他效果踏板. 如果你余生只能拥有一个扭曲踏板的话, there are good arguments it ought to be a Tube Screamer.

This article is intended to give a basic overview of the TS9 sound, its uses for different styles of music 而且 with different amps, as well as a look at the different options available today.

声音的特征

仅仅根据名字, 你会认为这是一个扭曲踏板,可以融化脸高增益的声音. 它可以帮助你, 这个CQ9电子游戏网站待会再讲, but the basic sound of the pedal is nothing of the sort. It’s a pretty simple design with three knobs:

  • 驱动: 控制增益的数量.
  • 基调: 调整调性字符.
  • 水平: 控制输出信号.
驱动,语气和水平. You can't get a whole lot simpler than that.

驱动,语气和水平. You can't get a whole lot simpler than that.

This is an overdrive pedal, not a heavy distortion pedal. The sound is crunchy, warm, midrange 而且 smooth. 这是甜蜜的超速声音,你得到时,你推动管放大器刚刚过去的断点. 如果我是一个蓝调,轻摇滚或乡村吉他手,这就是我要找的.

In fact, it was the sound a looked for when I was in a b而且 like that. 我把我的管尖叫前Traynor管组合放大器为一点额外的魅力. 这工作好. While I wasn’t looking for heavy distortion it gave me the crunch I needed, 这让我的语气变得更强硬了.

电子管尖叫器用固态放大器听起来很好,但它真的能让电子管放大器发光. Any distortion pedal will help push a tube amp harder into overdrive. 当然,声音很重要,有一些很好的选择可以达到这个目的. TS9是所有列表中的第一款, 对我来说, it has worked very well for everything from blues to extreme metal.

如果你演奏蓝调,乡村音乐或某些经典摇滚风格,这个踏板是很容易弄清楚的. 把它放入你的信号链中, 把你的扩音器设置成干净的声音,当你需要踢进嘎吱作响的声音时,就踩这个绿色的小盒子.

Using the Tube Screamer for 金属 而且 Hard 岩石

金属 而且 hard rock players have used the TS9 since the ‘80s, 而且 this obviously isn’t a metal distortion pedal. So, how do you use a Tube Screamer for metal? 你有几个选择. 记住,这两个例子都假设你是通过电子管放大器演奏.

这第一个想法是使用增益从踏板结合增益从你的放大器. This pushes your amp harder into overdrive, but it also colors the signal with the tone from the pedal. Since this is a great-sounding pedal you might not mind.

这里的关键是得到一个混合踏板和放大器失真,这是你喜欢的. 对我来说,我把我的马歇尔DSL设置为超增益频道,Lead 2,增益大约为6. This is already some decent heavy distortion. 然后,我把TS9设置为最高限速,并在中午前后分别设置了色调和电平. 我喜欢这个声音, 它保留了足够的马歇尔调子,同时增加了大量的增益,维持和收紧声音.

The second option is to use the TS9 as more of a boost. 这可能是玩家选择的方法与放大器已经推出高增益失真, 比如Peavey 6505. 在这种情况下, you leave the Drive at its lowest setting 而且 crank the Level, adjusting the Tone control as you wish.

This is an alternative method I sometimes use with my Marshall, 在这种情况下, I’d crank the amp’s gain control to the max. 踏板在这种设置的目的不是直接增加失真,但推动放大器更硬(间接创造更多失真),也要收紧和压缩声音.

So what about using the Tube Screamer for metal with a solid-state amp? 我玩了《CQ9电子游戏网站》(一款较早的美国版本)很长时间. 这个放大器已经有很多增益和压缩,我从来没有觉得需要增加一个踏板. But I did experiment from time to time, 尤其是清洁频道, 而且 with the Lead channel in vintage mode.

If you have a solid-state amp you don’t feel has enough firepower, you can certainly employ method one above. 当然没有管子来煮, 但你可以利用TS9的超速和音调堆一些厚厚的失真在你的放大器已经失真的声音.

变化

除了TS9,现在市场上还有很多类似的型号:

  • TS808: 根据伊巴内斯的说法,这是原来的伊巴内斯TS808的重新发行,完全是同一芯片. The 808 has a smoother sound than the TS9, 而且 some players prefer it.
  • TS迷你: 迷你版的吉他, 例如放大器头和踏板, are pretty popular today for some reason. 这是迷你管尖叫器,如果你用小号的话,你可以省下几美元.
  • TS9DX: The warm sound of the TS808 with additional modes for Turbo, Hot 而且 TS9. 这是一个管尖叫与更广泛的色调选择和一点更多的增益.
  • TS808DX: 这个双按钮踏板为您提供TS808的加速功能. 玩家使用Tube Screamer达到了这两种目的,所以这个踏板可以让你同时做到这两件事.
  • TS808HW: 这是一款限量生产的踏板,由手工挑选的优质组件制成. 它会让你花一些钱,但如果你需要一个顶级踏板,这肯定是符合要求的.
  • Maxon OD808: 这不是一个Ibanez的产品,但它是一些玩家的首选,作为一个出色的TS808补发. This company designed the original pedals for Ibanez back in the ‘70s.
地铁令人惊叹的事 TS9 runs off a 9-volt battery, but also gives you the option of plugging into a power source.

最终的想法

Ibanez Tube Screamer TS9是摇滚吉他历史上最受尊敬的踏板之一. 又热又脆, 而且 on its own can form a foundation of the sound for blues, 国家, 和摇滚吉他手. 它甚至对金属吉他手也适用, thickening 而且 tightening their sound 而且 adding a little more gain.

值得注意的是,这是吉他历史上最先进的踏板之一. 几乎所有的讨论都会有人建议你把它拆开,换掉一些组件. 这对我来说有点难, 但我很想在下面的评论中听到你对你的单位做的任何修改或改变.

Is it the best overdrive pedal for you? 谁知道? There are a lot of great distortion pedals, 而且 those by br而且s like 老板 而且 混频器 都值得考虑. 但毫无疑问,TS9是一个经典,对许多吉他手来说,它就是他们所需要的一切. 试一试,然后弄清楚. 我猜一旦你在你的踏板清单上增加了一个,你就再也不想摆脱它了.
