Here is an Ibanez TS-5 Sound Tank Tubescreamer modded to 808 specs including a JRC4558D opamp.

Sounds samples are at

The TS5 has the same circuit as the sought after TS9 and is a very good pedal to mod to the vintage 808 spec.

The TS-5 has a bad op amp & some of the components are different and need changing/upgrading.

Now a player on a tight budget can get the classic 808 sound without spending $300.00 on an Ibanez 808 reissue or buying a TS9 for $200.00 and modding it to an 808.

Like all pedals Dexter Mods does that include an upgraded op amp this pedal has had an IC socket installed to allow the winner to change op amps and the auction includes a 4558P op amp as used in SRV's tubescreamers.

This TS5 has velcro on the footplate.

Comes with a green LED.

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

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

GST invoice available on request.
