A modified version of the classic OD808 overdrive.
Yet for all its legendary status, there are some who wish the 808 offered just a little bit more - and for those players obsessed with excess, Maxon has created the OD808X Overdrive Extreme. The Extreme shares the same basic circuit architecture as the OD808. However, several key component values have been altered to achieve what may be the ultimate overdrive tone.
The OD808X offers a wider frequency response than a stock OD808, with an extended hi-frequency tonal range that offers additional clarity without becoming harsh. It also features a harder clipping pattern than the standard model, creating a searing, full-bodied drive tone that helps chords ring and notes sing.
An additional +5 dB of output level assures that the OD808X will punch through the densest of mixes with an authority that most OD's just can't match. Its additional level and top-end also allows the X to be stacked in a chain of pedals without getting buried under other Dirt boxes.
The OD808X offers the same "feel" and amazing transparency that the 808 is famous for - digging in you'll get more break-up; rolling back your volume will clean things up and you're guitar will sound like your guitar.
Beyond that, all similarities end and all bets are off. Comparing the X to a stock OD808 is kind of like bringing a gun a knife fight - it's excessive, but you know it will get the job done!
When even legendary overdrives just aren't enough, it's time to go to the extreme - the OD808X Overdrive Extreme.
- Modified version of classic OD808 Overdrive
- Extended frequency response improves note definition and clarity
- Increased Output (+5 dB over OD808) for extra Volume Boost
- Harder clipping yields more aggressive, amp-like Distortion
- Buffered Bypass Switching
- Free Standard Ground shipping (48 contiguous states, some overweight and Used/Vintage items excluded).
- Orders placed before 3 p.m. ET usually ship the same business day.
