Reissue TS9 Question
Just wondering where guys are getting the JRC 4558 chips from for the TS9....Mine has the TA 75558 now and after modding it to the 808 it sounds really good,but I would still like to check out the 4558 chip since others tell me the pedal sounds even better....Thanks John S.

John, Mouser sells them for approximately 30 cents each. Although not a vintage chip,most ears can't tell the difference between them. There are other op-amps you may want to purchase while visiting Mouser.  
 
Of course no advice given would be complete without mentioning R.G.'s "Technology of the Tube Screamer". Please search for the link in the Ampage resource section.

John,  
Mouser rules. There is no minimum order :) Enjoy your pedal. Mark
