You can find all this information on the internet. There is a lot of information about vintage TS-9’s on Analogman.com. Look for yoursel but here's a brief summary.
On true vintage Ibanez Tube Screamer pedals. True vintage Ibanez TS-9’s from 81-85 are manufactured by Maxon and have a black label and are made in Japan. TS-9’s with a silver label are later year. The silver labels on the TS-9’s aren’t the same as the black label. The first number on the silver label IS NOT THE YEAR MANUFACTURED! The first number of the serial # on the black label of the TS-9’s is the year manufactured. Like #137118 the first number is a 1 so it was manufactured in 1981 and so on. The first number on the silver label is not the year manufactured. I don’t know why Ibanez (Maxon) changed this but, they did. True vintage TS-9’s have green resistors. If the TS-9 has brown resistors it’s a later model. The Japan Radio Co. JRC Op amp chips that were manufactured in the TS-9’s by Maxon the chips have a shinny gloss finish. Like the rare highly sought after JRC4558D Op amp chip. True vintage chips made by the Japan Radio Company have the glossy finish. If the Op amp chips have a gloss finish it’s a true 80’s vintage. The common and less desirable JRC2043DD have the gloss finish they are also vintage Op amp chips. If the JRC Op amp chip has a dull finish or has a letter after the number (4558D JRC 6482B) it is not a true vintage JRC4558D chip. It was manufactured later. Not in the 80’s. An original TS-9 was not manufactured with an Op Amp Chip Socket. So you can switch out chips. Not Vintage. True vintage TS-9’s the circuit board has Maxon printed at the top as well as on the battery cover and stamped on pedal itself under the foam for the battery. The blue capacitor in the circuit board of the TS-9’s have the year the pedal was manufactured. TS-9’s all have a 4 digit number on the blue capacitor. The first 2 numbers is the year the TS-9 was manufactured. That’s why I always take a picture of the blue compacitors to verify the year the TS-9 was manufactured in my listing photos. Like I said, look for yourself this info is easy to get on the internet.
