A New Take on a Classic: 3 Reasons You Want the Ibanez Nu Tube Screamer NTS

The Ibanez Tube Screamer is one of the most iconic guitar pedals ever created — countless players rely on it as a clean boost to push the front end of their tube amp harder, or as a mid-focused overdrive that will cut through any mix. And while there have been numerous variations on this legendary green pedal over the years, the Ibanez Nu Tube Screamer offers a few tricks that no other Tube Screamer has.
Nu Tube technology for amp-like response
Based around Nu Tube technology, the Nu Tube Screamer NTS delivers punchy tone with natural tube compression and amp-like response. At lower gain levels you’ll hear the subtle harmonic enhancement you’d expect from a tube amp, while higher gain levels give way to natural tube compression. Compared to a conventional Tube Screamer, the Nu Tube Screamer NTS sounds warmer and richer, with a more dynamic response.
Mix control for balancing clarity and drive
In addition to its Drive, Level, and Tone controls, the Nu Tube Screamer NTS offers a Mix control to blend your dry tone with the overdriven tone — or to completely remove the overdrive for use as a transparent clean boost. At higher gain settings, blending in some of your dry signal preserves the detail of your note attack for greater sonic definition.
Your choice of 9V or 18V operation
While the Nu Tube Screamer NTS can be powered with a 9V battery or power supply, you can also use an 18V power supply for greater gain and headroom. If you want maximum dynamic range and touch sensitivity, the Nu Tube Screamer running on 18V power won’t disappoint.
