As you can see, the JRC chip was used throughout the life of the TS-808 and the TL4558P was used sometimes.
In AB tests, there is VERY little difference between the three chips, although the JRC gives the strongest CLASSIC tube screamer sound- the sweet vocal midrange.
Ibanez reissued the narrow TS-808 as the "35th Anniversary TS-808" in 2014.
It is a very accurate reissue except they used JRC4558D chips instead of the 1458 chips.
They have a little bit more grit which some people might like.
(R) means the trademark after Ibanez on the top of the pedal.

An Ibanez Tube Screamer is an overdrive/distortion pedal that is mild compared to many, but allows the true sound of the guitar and player's technique to come through.
The most popular use of a tube screamer is to push a tube amp to make it overdrive more, but they sound good through almost anything.
