This is the General Guitar Gadgets replica of the famed 808™ Tube Screamer™. This build is the "Expensive Boutique" mod that includes a number of vital value changes such as a pot value, resistors, diodes, and capacitors, etc.

The toggle switch enables switching between diode clipping options. Far right utilizes red LEDs for clipping. The middle position utilizes standard diode clipping while the left position is asymmetrical diode clipping.

All clipping options are not created equal in output volume but that is of little matter as a slight adjustment to the volume knob makes up for this. Each option, however, has a unique tonal quality allowing this pedal to become very versatile.

If you'd like to try your hand at building this pedal, go to http://www.generalguitargadgets.com and purchase the complete mod kit (which includes all the parts for several options) or have Jason at StompTone build you one. Contact Jason at http://www.StompTone.com for a pre-built pedal.

In this video, the pedal was demonstrated using a 1983 Les Paul Deluxe through a Carvin Vintage 50 amp on the clean channel into an Carvin Vintage 4x10 cabinet. One George Ls™ and one Monster Rock™ cable were used.
