Ready To Get SRV’S Trademark Tone?

You only need a few seconds into the song and there’s immediately that distinctive, easily recognizable Stevie Ray Vaughan sound — it’s unmistakable, loud, massive and all too clear. What sorcery is that? The mere hands of a guitar god at work? We sorely wish that was so but like every legendary player, there’s a great instrument behind what makes their music immortal too. In this case, SRV and his Ibanez TS-808 Tube Screamer — yup, that small, green box.

Perhaps Premier Guitar magazine described it best:

“The essence of the Tube Screamer’s appeal — what multitudes of similar designs that it has inspired over the years aim to capture — are the subtly pleasing qualities it induces as it interacts with a tube amp: As you increase the amplitude of an input signal to overload a tube amp’s preamp, it distorts the signal in a way that adds sustain, edge, and harmonic liveliness, while preserving the innate tonal characteristics of the guitar and amp — and without obscuring the player’s dynamics.”

This is currently on sale at Emerald City Guitars for the price of $11,000.
