Maxon Releases OD808X Overdrive Extreme

(PRESS RELEASE): 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.

Additional Features of the OD808X Overdrive Extreme are as follows:

•             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

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.
