    Comments about Ibanez TK999HT Tube King Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    That 12ax7 really makes a huge difference when you compare it to traditional pedals. Take your time to dial in the sound. You won't be disappointed. I use this at the front end of a Line6 POD HD500 for some songs in a set and then directly from the POD into a PA.

    There are only two downsides that I've noted. First, it's large and heavy, but I'd actually expect that out of a pedal like this, so, while I'd love it to be smaller and lighter, I accept the bulk as necessary to get the 12AX7 in there. Second, the design of the Ins/Outs really require you to place the pedal so that it forms a diamond shape in order to keep it on a pedal board, which doesn't work for as many pedals as I have. It really eats up a lot of real estate with that orientation. Those two things are relatively insignificant cons to the pedal.

    It's the best pedal out of about a dozen distortions I've owned over the years.

    Comments about Ibanez TK999HT Tube King Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I run my SG gothic through a tube king into a 1988 Laney pt-100 head/marshall 1960BV cab. People usually say that these are suited to augmenting solid state heads, and I'm sure they do that wonderfully, but the sound through my 100w tube head can only be described as mean. The distortion is natural sounding, as it should be from a tube pedal, and goes from a overdriven sound on the low end of the dial, to a blown out Japanese crusty hardcore tone on the high end. in between there should be a setting to suit any style of heavy/fast/thrashy/hard guitar playing. really accentuates harmonics, and the guitar's natural tone still shines through the distortion. just take your time playing around with settings.

    what is that stupid void control for? even as noise gates go, it is total garbage. good thing you can just switch it off.
