Maxon OD808 Overdrive

Comments about Maxon OD808 Guitar Overdrive Pedal:

The Maxon OD808 is the best Tubescreamer style overdrive pedal currently on the market. The circuit is identical to the vintage Ibanez TS-808 Tube Screamer, but packed in a smaller MXR style enclosure, which is great because it takes up much less valuable real estate on your pedalboard. Since Maxon is the company that manufactured the vintage Tubescreamers for Ibanez back in the day, the OD808 is the real deal. It produces the smoothest overdrive sound that I have yet heard . It is not at all a "hairy" or "buzzy" sound. There is also a distinct midrange boost present when the pedal is engaged. This combination of smooth overdrive and boosted midrange makes the OD-808 the pedal of choice for creating a singing, sustaining blues lead tone. It also works great for boosting the output, sustain and distortion of a lower gain vintage style amplifier. All-in-all this is my favorite overdrive pedal of the many that I own!
