It’s an undisputed fact that countless Metal & extreme music guitarists have used Tube Screamer-style overdrives to pummel their amps and sculpt their tones with surgical precision.
So who better to modify a Tube Screamer pedal for optimum performance with high-gain amps than one of the industry’s foremost amp designers?
We’re extremely stoked to announce the release of the Custom Shop, Fortin-modded TS-9 Tube Screamer.
For years, many of our friends and artists have been raving about Fortin Amplification and their monstrous tones. So, when we ran into Mike Fortin at the 2020 NAMM show, the first thing we did was pitch him on the idea of doing a pedal mod with us.
Mike enthusiastically agreed, and two pandemic-stricken years later, the Fortin-modded TS-9 has finally become a reality.
The first thing you’ll notice about the Fortin TS-9 is that it is LOUD. I mean, REALLY loud. Like, obscene, window-shattering, tinnitus-inducing, end-of-the-universe LOUD.
This excessive output level simply pulverizes the front-end of any amplifier, torturing tones out of tubes that must be heard to be believed.
The use of red LED’s in place of the standard clipping diodes allows the Fortin TS-9 to offer a fully clean boost when the Drive control is set to zero. When Drive is increased, these red LED’s also offer a more natural-sounding, tube-like clipping than standard diodes.
The Fortin TS-9 has also been voiced with an enhanced upper midrange, accentuating higher-order harmonics for more articulate pick attack
With a few simple yet strategic component swaps, Mike Fortin has taken a legendary overdrive and converted it into an essential component in the quest for crushing crunch. The Fortin-modded Ibanez TS-9 Tube Screamer — sheer brutality in a box.
Due to the limited availability of these pedals, a 20% restocking fee will be charged on all canceled orders.
