Maxon Releases the OD808X Overdrive Extreme

The OD808X offers a wider frequency response with an extended hi-frequency range.

Clifton, NJ (October 24, 2014) -- Godlyke, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of the Maxon OD808X Overdrive Extreme.

Based on the classic “808” circuit that Maxon invented over 30 years ago, the OD808X offers a wider frequency response with an extended hi-frequency range. This added tonal range has been carefully tuned to provide additional clarity without becoming harsh, and will also accentuate high-gain settings.

The Overdrive Extreme also offers more gain and harder clipping than the standard OD808, creating amp-like distortion with excellent note definition. An increased output level allows the OD808X to be used as a semi-dirty booster to drive an amp.

Features:

  • Drive, Tone and Level Controls
  • Buffered bypass switching with low impedance output to drive long cable lengths without loss of signal.
  • Status LED indicates bypass/effect and battery condition for trouble-free performance.
  • 9V battery or AC adaptor operation
  • 3-Year Limited Warranty
  • Made in Japan

List Price $209 / Street Price $159

Rig Rundown: Wolf Alice's Joff Oddie

Joff Oddie shows PG his own Jag-Master creation and then plasters it with pedals bending (and distorting) space and time.

Listening to the tidal wave in “Giant Peach,” the riotous “Moaning Lisa Smile,” or the punked-up “Play the Greatest Hits,” it’s hard to imagine Wolf Alice as an acoustic duo. Then talk to Joff Oddie about his integral use of effects—“These pedals can do such crazy things; to not do crazy things with things that can do crazy things seems odd”—and the band’s origin story becomes even more improbable. But it’s true: Wolf Alice started with guitarist/singer Ellie Rowsell and guitarist Oddie playing acoustic-folk music during open-mic nights in North London pubs.
