Honestly incredible for £65
I have used both the TS9 and TS808 along with this and this is the pick of the bunch in my opinion. It has a bit of a rawer feel to it with a good amount of drive and full volume. It is honestly fantastic and if you don't want to stump up double for a TS9 or risk spending less on a cheap copy, this is the choice!

Bang for Buck
My first tubescreamer, now I understand all the fuss. Lovely mid hump, I used it before other drives to turn a rhythm tone into a lead one, not really my kind of overdrive, but still awesome. As a standalone drive is best to have your amp cranked on the edge of breakup, as it's tone seems to have some dry signla in it like a parallel overdrive, which makes it great for stacking with other pedals. For 65€ it's hard not to give this pedal 5 stars. Very raw sounding and instant "vintagizer".
You'd be surprised.
I bought this 3 months ago. Almost never recorded anything without it, even with close to no drive whatsoever, it really brings a big sound to average crunchy amp channels. And a real nice distorted rhythm tone with the drive at 2 or 3 o'clock, which is WAY better than those front-page distortion pedals, like the Boss DS-2, or MetalZone, sh*t like that.
BUT, What really makes this pedal great, is it's orgasmic clean boost. Sh*t mate, the clean tones this pedal has. Over a nice clean channel from your amp, you put this little guy at no drive and 10 o'clock tone, and he will make you question your clean playing before you met him. Terrific with arpeggios. And hey, if you want a nice bright crunchy sound but your amps crunch tone is some boring and the-exact-opposite-of-bright piece of shit (wouldn't surprise me), cranck the tone all the way with just a little bit drive. It will be way way better. Plus the true bypass helps a lot too. And it small, so it's easy to carry around and doesn't take loads of space. Seriously, this pedal is so good. 10/10 would recommend.
I've been hearing about how Ibanez Tube Screamers were a common staple in everyone's pedalboard. My first experience with trying one out was this past weekend. This is so worth the price. I wanted something that could be subtle or be pushed to a great rock tone. With my humbuckers, though I'm sure it's quite the same, to a degree with single coil pickups, this was exactly what I was looking for.
The Legend, Modernized.
The Ibanez Tube Screamer is probably one of the most legendary and iconic pedals of all time, you don't need to read a review about it in so much as you need to throw your money at your local gear shop and take one of these home with you. The Mini is a great option for crowded pedal boards and it doesn't seem to suffer from its weight loss. You're sacrificing the use of a 9-Volt battery and need to keep it plugged in, but on powered boards that isn't an issue. I use this pedal to enhance pretty much all of my other pedals when I need that extra dirt and bite. So good. Butter on a Pop-Tart good.
100% pure TS tone in a small box
This small green box will give you everything you could ever expect from a regular TS-9 / TS-808. Either you are boosting your tubes to get more grit or use it as a standalone drive you will find it fantastic! It's true bypass, takes very little precious space on pedalboard and what is even more important TS mini costs a half of a price of a regular tubescreamers.
This is THE overdrive for me
I listened to a ton of overdrives before deciding to get a Tube Screamer. My budget is never too big neither, so this mini version saves me money AND looks cute. And it's not any worse than it's big brothers. I often use it as a boost and it works great in that role.
You'll need to paint the grooves on the smaller knobs if you want to see them from further than 10 centimeters.
Great little pedal
While building my pedalboard I had a massive issue deciding between an Ibanez TS9 and a Maxon OD9. After spending hours watching videos of the two, comparing and contrasting tones, I finally came across the TS mini. This little pedal packs a punch and easily matches- maybe even surpasses the tone of the TS9.
