Cliff Burton's Ibanez TS808 The Original Tube Screamer

This photo is taken from a magazine article shows the late bassist for Metallica, Trauma, and EZ-Street, Cliff Burton. Here we see him at a live performance while he was with Metallica. On the floor near the front of the stage we see his 3 pedals. The small, green pedal farthest left, next to the Morley Power Wah Fuzz Pedal is the Ibanez TS808 Original Tube Screamer. Cliff Burton enthusiasts are known to grab this piece of gear to replicate his historic tone.

I'm probably blind but I can't see a TS-808 anywhere. The TS-808 came out in the 90s I think.....

You'll have to see full size image and and then crtl+wheel up to zoom in on it. It's hard to see, but you can make out the big white button just below a row of black knobs.

Aye, that's a TS-9, not TS-808. Basically the same pedal though!

He did not use this. He switched from the Muff to a TS9, not a TS808. You can see the larger button in most descent photos of his pedalboard.
