Retro-Sonic Eight-O-Eight Overdrive


Retro-Sonic (2006-2007)

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.

Standard Equipment: These are the features that the pedal will have as shipped to dealers.

  • 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.

Optional Equipment: (These options will only be available through direct orders)

  • Tone control enhancement (enhances tonal range)
  • Audio Quality Op-amp
  • Increased gain range (less gain at min setting, more gain at Max)
