The Original Overdrive! The OD808 is often imitated but never matched! Identical to the 1970s circuit and featuring the JRC4558 IC chip, it offers warm, smooth, transparent overdrive that'll make your rig scream!
The OD808's dynamically responsive circuitry reacts precisely to individual playing styles, letting the true voice of any instrument or artist shine through. Don't settle for copies when you can have the original.
The OD808 Reissue offers up all the warm, creamy, organic overdrive as the original and then some. Never one to rest on their laurels, Maxon has tweaked the current version ever so slightly to reduce noise level while retaining the legendary “808" tone.
The OD808 is the perfect pedal for adding smooth, tube-like overdrive to any clean amp – use it as a secondary dirt channel to beef up a song's chorus section, or keep it on all the time for the crunchy tone that has defined rock and roll.
Improved circuitry featuring the JRC4558 IC yields the ultra-smooth, creamy, dynamic overdrive so sought after by guitarists.
Overdrive and output level controls adjust the intensity of overdrive and output volume, while the Hi Boost/Hi Cut Tone control adjusts the brightness from warm and smooth to sizzling hot.
While the M-OD808 may have been the first overdrive circuit of its kind, it was the OD-9 that cemented this sound in the history of Rock & Roll guitar. Looking at the OD-9's circuit, you'll realize that this is not some redesign being cleverly marketed as a reissue – this is THE original OD-9 (TS-9) circuit, yet with the addition of true bypass switching.
