Product Description

The quintessential overdrive pedal - often imitated but never matched. Identical to the original circuit and featuring the JRC4558 IC chip, the OD808 reissue offers smooth, natural overdrive similar to a full-up tube amplifier. Incredibly transparent, the OD808 responds to individual playing dynamics and lets the true tone of your instrument shine through.


No matter how fast technology advances, some things just cannot be improved upon. The mark of true genius is the company that recognizes this fact and works to preserve tradition, rather than re-invent it.

Awesome tone.
Your general opinion of this product.
I bought both the Maxon 808 and OD9 from AMS. The 808 is for the studio, the OD9 is for the stage. The 808 has a smoother tone. Less aggressive upper mid range, a good thing, and a little more low end compared to the OD9. The difference is minor but there. The 808 is not true bypass and adds noise to your signal when it is off. On switch is a small button. The OD9 is true bypass, silent when off. It has a tool-less battery pack access, a larger stomp pedal, and painted markers on the nobs.
