Big Knob Pedals Tube 808 - Classic Amp Boost


Big Knob Pedals

An exact circuit and component replica of what's been hailed by most experts as the "Holy Grail" of overdrive/distortion pedals. 100% hand-wired and made with all quality components including a solid die-cast Hammond case, Electro-Harmonix heavy-duty 3PDT true bypass footswitch and, last but not least, the original JRC4558D opamp chip used in the original Tube Screamer models. The only addition to the original circuit is a mini-toggle switch that adds the popular "fat mod" boost. Like all my "Big Knob" branded pedals I produce, these are created first and foremost for my own use as a gigging guitarist, and this particular one is without a doubt, my favorite distortion unit. I guarantee the quality in all my pedals, no questions asked.

Big Knob Pedals

A circuit and component replica of what's now universally recognized as the most popular overdrive ever produced. Its signature sound of mid-boosted tone, still popular with blues and rock players alike, is often imitated but rarely cloned to such an exacting standard. The original JRC4558D opamp chip is just one of the key ingredients in re-creating this legendary pedal's classic tone and it's certainly no wonder why our Tube 808 continues to be our number-one best-seller.
