In 1998, the new TS-9DX was introduced, which included a 4-way switch for capacitor changes and changes in the clipping section. Around 2000 came the Tone Lok series, and the TS-7, which included a switch for added gain. In the early 90's, Ibanez released the Soundtank series, which, except for the first run which was metal, had cheap plastic enclosures and like the Power Series before it, used less expensive parts.
Then in 1996, Ibanez added a CE mark to the back of the pedal, which is required for it to be sold in Europe. In 1992, Ibanez began re-issuing the TS-9. To make production cheaper, these pedals used circuit board-mounted potentiometers (pots) and jacks. Like many of the Master and Power Series pedals, there were not many differences in the circuitry between these and their 9-series counterparts.
Based on the Master series but with slight changes in in housing in 1986, the Power Series were introduced, which included the TS-10. The name change was most likely for marketing reasons. Looking closer circuitwise shows that there is one but in the disguise of the Metal Screamer with slightly changed component values. Many claim that in this series there's no Tubescreamer.
In 1985 the Master or L series were introduced and sold only for a year. The first was the TS-9 Tube Screamer, which included only a few component changes and often, but not always, different IC's. Over the years, Ibanez released many different kinds of pedals bearing the Tube Screamer name. Many players consider this one of the best solid state pedals to emulate the sound produced by an overdriven vacuum tube guitar amplifier.
These contained the famed JRC4558D integrated circuit (IC). Tube Screamers - Based on the earlier Overdrive I and II pedals, Ibanez began releasing the first Tube Screamer, the TS-808 in the late 1970's. The two companies eventually began doing less and less business together until Maxon ceased manufacting the TS-9 reissue for Ibanez in 2002. Ibanez licensed these for sale under their name outside of Japan.
In the 1970's, the Maxon company developed and began selling a series of effect pedals in Japan. The company also began an extensive program of consulting with well-known guitar players and creating signature models made to the players' specifications. This led to an increasing popularity with heavy metal musicians. Abandoning the strategy of copying "classic" electric guitar designs, the newer models began incorporating more modern elements into their design, such as radical body shapes, slimmer necks and flatter fingerboards (which allowed for faster playing), higher-output electronics and colorful finishes.
Ibanez settled out of court, and by 1978 had begun making guitars from their own designs. The actual lawsuit referred to was brought by the Norlin Corporation, the parent company of Gibson guitars, in 1977, and was based on an Ibanez headstock design that had been discontinued by 1976. These guitars have become known as "lawsuit" guitars and have become somewhat collectible. Many guitar aficionados feel that the early- and mid-70s mark a low point in the quality of guitars from the major manufacturers, which helped contribute to the popularity of the Ibanez copies.
The low price combined with the relatively high quality of the guitars made these models very popular. Using somewhat cheaper materials and greater automation in manufacturing, they were able to sell these guitars for a significantly lower price than the originals. In the early 1970s Ibanez began making guitars that were almost exact copies of popular models by Gibson, Fender and Rickenbacker. In 1971 Hoshino purchased Elger Guitars, renaming the company "Ibanez U.S.A." and retaining the company headquarters in Bensalem, Pennsylvania as a distribution and quality-control center.
Hoshino had recently acquired a small Spanish guitar company named Ibanez, and it was decided to market the instruments under this brand name. At the time, the phrase "made in Japan" was considered to have negative connotations of low quality, so Hoshino Gakki and Rosenbloom wanted to distribute the instruments under a "non-Japanese" name. By 1965 Rosenbloom had decided to stop manufacturing guitars and chose to become the exclusive North American distributor for Hoshino Gakki instruments. The Elger Guitar company made a relatively small number of hand-built, high quality guitars through the early 1960s.
Due to the post-World War II music boom, his sales soon outstripped his inventory, and he began a company called Elger Guitars in an attempt to manufacture enough guitars to fill his needs. In 1954, Harry Rosenbloom opened a music store in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, northwest of Philadelphia. The company had little presence in the Western world until the mid-1960s. In 1935 they began manufacturing their own stringed instruments.
The Hoshino Gakki company began in 1908 as a musical instrument sales division of the Hoshino Shoten bookstore company. Ibanez is a guitar company in Nagoya, Japan, the company was started by Hoshino Gakki. Ibanez History - Ibanez History. Ibanez JS Site - Ibanez Joe Satriani fansite.
