I bought an ibanez tubescreamer yesterday to boost the gain on my mark IV, and it sounds pretty awesome with my mesa boogie and dimarzio PUPS, but i was wondering what are your guys' takes on it and if there is anything that will beat it........ I'm pretty happy with it as of yet, but i have 30 days to return it and i want the best bang for my buck.

It's an overdrive pedal used by many famous artists such as Stevie Ray Vaughan. It was said that blues players were not allowed to solo without one! :].

What if I already have an overdrive pedal should I get one for an Ibanez or is my Jackhammer ok?

Do you have soundlcips of the mark IV?? I really would love to hear them... Im thinking about getting the amp.. Is it good for shred sounding stuff?

Sorry to be off topic but Im trying to find a perfect am.

How much did you spend for yours? Was it used?

My jackhammer was luckily on sale for about a month for I think $80 but it's originally like $130-$140.
I was lucky to get that because I'm not rich at all. I'm more toward the poor side!
Hope it helps. Ask questions if needed!
