http://www.ProGuitarShop.com - The Ibanez TK999HT Tube King Distortion Pedal - A regal name in distortion pedals, the Tube King returns to the Ibanez lineup. While the name and purpose of the Ibanez distortion pedal is the same as the original '90s models, this version of Tube King, the TK999HT, differs from its two predecessors in that it features internal high voltage DC circuitry instead of previous "starved plate" low voltage circuitry. Ibanez says that makes a significant difference.

With the TK999HT the 12AX7 gets normal DC high voltage, allowing total linear operation of the tube. It works just like a tube preamp because it effectively is one! The result is that the TK999HT distortion pedal makes any solid-state amp sound like a tube amp. The distortion is massive yet tight.

Ibanez TK999HT Tube King Distortion Pedal Features: * Genuine High Voltage Tube Distortion Pedal * 12AX7 Tube * 3-Band Active EQ plus Presence Switch for Exacting Tone Control * VOID Control for Sharp Rhythmic Dynamics * Rigid Zinc Die-cast Case * 12-Volt AC Adaptor Included * Controls: * Drive * Level * Three Bands of Active EQ (LO/MID/HI) * Presence Switch * VOID (adjustable noise gate - can also used for "machine gun" riff effects favored by metal players.)

I've always loved the sound of this pedal, but I'll never understand why they redesigned the chassis to look like a construction sign.

I think my guitar has too high output, because my Tube King never sounded so "crunchy", not even if I turn down the gain at the minimum :D

don't hear anything all that 'heavy' about the tone. sounds like it could get an ok harder rock tone, but not really anything one would use for heavy palm muting and thick distorted rhythm for metal. and I don't mean "metal" like 80s, or ozzy. I mean METAL

Best pedal on the market can make even crappy gear sounf great. I am surpised it remains as a sleeper in the degment. The TS-808 and TS-9 get all the attention, but this is the one to own.

Tube distortion pedals are so much better than anything else. Crank the amp all the way up and you are in the tone of the gods.
