Earthquaker Devices Plumes vs Ibanez Tubescreamer

I've seen alot of comments online asking if the Earthquaker Devices Plumes is actually different than the Ibanez Tubescreamer. Well, I bought a Plumes and I can say that yes, they are very different in three ways: (1) The plumes is much brighter than the Tubescreamer, (2) The plumes has about 4x the volume of the tubescreamer (no joke), and (3) there is a little more gain and compression range available on the plumes.

I'll second the volume on the Plumes. I have to keep mine at 9 o'clock, even at low amp volumes, if i turn my plumes volume up to even noon, I blast my eardrums out. This also seems to vary by mode, mode 2 is the biggest offender.
