Godlyke, Inc. is proud to announce the release of the limited-edition Maxon 40th Anniversary OD808-40 Overdrive pedal.

Originally released in 1979, the Maxon OD808 Overdrive was designed to emulate the warm, natural sound of an overdriven tube-amp and was arguably the first pedal of its kind. Originally released by Maxon in the Japanese market, the OD808 circuit was then licensed by Ibanez and released worldwide as the TS808 Tubescreamer.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this iconic effect, Godlyke, Inc. has partnered with the OD808’s designer, former Maxon Engineer Susumu Tamura to release the limited-edition OD808-40 Anniversary model.

Featuring a circuit modified to Mr. Tamura’s specifications, the OD808-40 features more output with superior note articulation and an improved dynamic response.

Production of the OD808-40 will be limited to 400 pieces and each unit will be serial numbered and come with a certificate of authenticity. In addition, the first 40 units will be hand-signed by Mr. Tamura himself.

Street price for the OD808-40 is $199 for unsigned version and $400 for signed version.
