OVERVIEW

Expanded gain range with 3-band active EQ for a better boost.

Whether you’re looking to give your sound a bit of a boost or trying to find harmonically rich heavy gain with warm tube character, the 805 Overdrive provides the versatility needed for any type of music – blues, country, rock, metal, and everything in between. The 3-band active EQ, delivers unprecedented control–you can have a smooth, lyrical bluesy tone one minute, and crushing modern metal crunch the next.

The 805 is designed to be the perfect overdrive for pushing the front end of an already distorted amp, giving you plenty of output and tone-shaping capability, but can also give your clean tone a controlled boost. Scoop your mids or tighten your hard rock/metal tone in front of a high-gain amplifier. Give that solo a searing boost that cuts perfectly through the mix and give your low end rhythm parts controlled crunch.

The 805 is capable of any of these and more. Being a true-bypass pedal, it will feel at home on whatever pedal board you choose.

    I use it for boost primarily on an acoustic setup. It gives the added volume without coloring the sound.

      Add some flavor to your board, not disappointed w/purchase.. Everyone's taste/hearing is different, new version of color than anything else I had, and those are mainly WAMPLER.

        Comments about Seymour Duncan 805 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Takes the tube screamer up a notch! Similar at the core, but the 3band EQ truly adds a level of adjustability and tone shaping not seen on the standard TS models. Highly recommended
