Product Description

Celebrating 40 years of the most iconic overdrive pedal, or any pedal for that matter, ever made! In the year 1979, Japanese electronics engineer Susumu Tamura unknowingly started a sonic revolution. Seeking to create a circuit to compete with the Boss OD-1, he inadvertently developed a pedal that would go on to become the most copied, cloned and modified guitar effect of all time.

That pedal was the Maxon OD808, which was then rebranded for Ibanez as the TS808 Tubescreamer. Known for its incredible warmth and organic, tube-like quality, the ‘808’ quickly became the go-to amp-pushing pedal for countless guitarists around the globe, including a little-known blues player from Texas named Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Over the past four decades, the 808 has taken on a variety of incarnations and launched the careers of many aspiring pedal designers looking to build a better mouse trap. But as the saying goes, there ain’t nothing like the real thing.

2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the release of this iconic overdrive, and to celebrate Maxon is releasing a limited-edition OD808 model in collaboration with Godlyke, Inc. Using the current-production OD808 as a launch pad, Mr. Tamura provided specific modifications to the pedals’ circuitry that provide a more open, articulate sound with improved dynamic response.

With a limited production of 400 units, the Maxon 40th Anniversary OD808 is destined to take its place among the legendary pedals it has descended from.
