Overdrive and Output Level controls adjust the intensity of overdrive and output volume, while the Hi Boost/Hi Cut Tone control adjusts the brightness from warm and smooth to sizzling hot. From subtle boosts to outrageous roars, the OD9 provides the artist with the widest range of usable, distinctly tube sounds available.

GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE June 2003:
"Based on the Ibanez TS-9 Tube Screamer, the OD-9 ($180 retail/$145 street) features the famous JRC4558 dual op-amp— the same chip used in the original TS-9. An all-purpose overdriver designed to deliver warm, tube-flavored grind, the OD-9 is well-suited for blues and other styles that don’t require blistering levels of gain. Evaluated against a reissue Ibanez TS-9, the OD-9 pumped out nearly identical-sounding distortion, with punchy mids and nicely detailed treble. Turning the OD-9’s Tone control to zero yields buttery tones that stand out well in a band mix. The only faults with this pedal were also present on the original TS-9—a lack of low-end and a tendency to instill a heavy midrange mantra on guitar tones. Still, unless you’re a metal maniac, it would be awfully hard to go wrong with the OD-9."
