    Well, the claim to fame to the Tube Screamers is as a boost for higher register solos on guitars. When I used it with a bass, it was pretty much useless.

    Instead of buying two pedals, why not but one good one?

    what does a TS9DX sound like without the mod from A.M.? its spose to have loads of bass in the turbo mode
  10. I actually have both the TS9DX & the Sparkle Drive on my pedal board right now. I use the Sparkle Drive for boosts. It will make my whole signal go up (or down, if you wanted) with a tiny touch of grit, without losing any highs or lows.

    The Tube Screamer on the other hand. I turn it on a very low OD setting & use it to emulate a tube head. Goes from bright & clear to rumbley. Very Allen Woody (Gov't Mule) sounding.

    Neither of my pedals have any mods, but if one of them were to be modded first... it would be the Sparkle Drive. The on/off button on it sucks big time. I have sent it in to be repaired once already..... very cool pedals, but worthless switches.
