The Eight-0-Eight OVERDRIVE is a faithful recreation of the original TS-808 Tube Screamer circuit and features the JRC4558D op-amp. Its overdrive circuit provides the same tone as a vintage ‘808, noted to provide tube like overdrive effects while retaining the guitars original tone.
Being a ground up build rather than a modified pedal has allowed us to provide some feature benefits up front.
– The unit is built with metal film resistors and caps for the best fidelity possible.
– True bypass switching.
– The opamp is mounted in a socket so that you can swap in alternates….
– An internal trimpot allows for adjustment to the amount of bottom end content present. The range is from stock TS to nearly flat (no flaby-ness wanted). The mids are not taken away, the bottom is brought up. A nice feature that lets you decide what the right amount of low end is.
