Maxon OD808 Overdrive Pedal

Details
The Maxon OD808 Overdrive Pedal is the reissue of the legendary TS808 tubescreamer that was the world's first tube-amp overdrive simulator, using the same circuitry Maxon used for the original, but with a few tweaks to make it stand up to modern standards. Delivering a warm, creamy, organic overdrive, the pedal can add a smooth, tube-like overdrive to any clean amp or be used to push an already overdriven amp to the limit. Its small and rugged enclosure ensures the pedal is portable while keeping everything safe whilst on the road. Offering the legendary "808" tone that set the standard for the rock and roll sound, the OD808 Overdrive is perfect for any musician who favours the classic sound or wants to infuse their playing with attitude.

The World’s First Tube-Amp Overdrive Simulator

Maxon’s OD808 pedal is a reissue of the legendary TS808 Tubescreamer, which Maxon designed themselves when they were an OEM manufacturer. The original OD808 circuitry was considered unique at the time, being an industry first as it offered a tube-like overdrive that would go on to reinvent the guitar sound repeatedly in the following years. Still used over 30 years later, Maxon has updated the 808 circuit to reduce the noise level for a cleaner tone whilst still retaining its legendary 808 tone.

A Powerful Overdrive Pedal

The OD808 overdrive produces a warm, creamy tone that has an organic feel to it, with a singing sustain that adds a layer of depth to your tone. Use the pedal to add smooth, tube-like overdrive to clean amps, or push an already overdriven amp over the edge for powerful distorted sounds. The mild compression and slight low-end cut is perfect for tightening up high gain amps, letting fast notes stand out and making rhymes tight and punchy.

About Maxon

Maxon started out in Japan in 1965 under the name Nisshin Onpa, manufacturing guitar pickups before producing OEM products for other companies. Nisshin Onpa was responsible for designing and manufacturing many legendary pedals while working in partnership with Ibanez, including the TS-808/TS808 and TS9 tube screamers. Although many of the pedals Maxon created were released under the Ibanez name, Maxon was producing pedals under their own name, and in 2002 when the two companies parted way, Maxon began to push its name as a manufacturer of high-quality effects pedals. Today Maxon produce "hard-to-find" vintage type effects pedals, and are used by many artists such as Pearl Jam, Troy Van Leeuwen, Steve Stevens, Brad Whitford, and many more.
