Maxon was the originator. Maxon is still the king of the 808 design. This pedal brings you all of the classic tones, plus some modifications that many players want in a very flexible overdrive. Works well with box tube and solid state amps, this pedal provides you with everything thing from subtle break up to searing lead tones. The mid boost switch is a big key in this pedals tonal qualities. Don't let anyone tell you mids are not important.. mids are where where tone is shaped.. and creates cutting power through a mix of instruments. This pedal has it in spades.
