http://www.ProGuitarShop.com - Here it is, the Maxon OD-808 Overdrive pedal! This was one of the first overdrive pedals to emulate tube amp overdrive with a solid state circuit. The OD-808 is also one of the most imitated pedals in stompbox history. The Maxon OD-808 Overdrive is one of Maxon's Reissue series. The only difference between this one and the original is a change in output resistors in order to reduce noise from static electricity buildup. Otherwise, the OD-808 is true to the original, featuring a signal distorting diode in the negative feedback loop which causes the signal to distort in the amplifier circuit instead of after. The Maxon OD-808 Overdrive pedal also features the infamous JRC4558 (of course!).

Smooth and creamy. That's the tone of the Maxon OD-808 Overdrive pedal. That sought after sound that everyone and their sister has tried to imitate and improve on is contained in the OD-808. This pedal needs no improvements, the overdrive is thick and creamy with singing sustain. The harmonically rich tone is easily cleaned up with a roll of the guitar's volume knob. If the search for the perfect tube screamer has got you down, the Maxon OD-808 Overdrive pedal will lift you back up and end that pesky nagging in the back of your head that your tone could be better.
