Maxon OD-808 Overdrive - Vintage-Style Overdrive Pedal for Guitar

When is a clone not really a clone? Simple: when it's designed and built by the original pedal's creators, making it more of a reissue than a generic clone. Which is exactly what you get with the Maxon OD808!

A New Take on the World's Most Popular Overdrive Pedal

During the late 1970's, Maxon designed and created the original OD808 overdrive circuit, which later found fame as the legendary Ibanez TS808 Tubescreamer. Cut to the modern day, and Maxon have decided to re-release the OD808 circuit under their own name once more, but have improved upon it to make it more suitable for the modern guitarist.

Rock and Roll Classic

Made famous by the early 90's, the original Tubescreamer is regarded as an absolute must-have for multitudes of guitar players the world over. With the OD808 Reissue you get all of the same warm, creamy, organic overdrive tones as the original, but the circuitry has now been improved to slightly reduce noise level without compromising any of that vintage rock and blues sound.

Versatile Drive Pedal

Use the OD808 as a standalone effect going through a clean channel, use it to boost your overdrive channel even further into filthy saturation territory, or even go the way of using two of the pedals together to help you blast out those dynamic riffs with conviction.
