Maxon OD808 40th Anniversary Overdrive

Maxon has announced the limited-edition 40th Anniversary OD808 Overdrive pedal.

Maxon was the original manufacturer of the OD808, which was later rebranded as the TS808 Tube Screamer by Ibanez. The OD808 features modifications by original designer Susumu Tamura, while the first 40 units will be hand-signed by Tamura himself.

Just 400 units will be produced, each of which comes with a signed certificate of authenticity.

Interestingly, the pedal will find itself in competition with Ibanez's own limited-edition 40th anniversary Tube Screamer, the Ruby Red Tube Screamer

The Maxon 40th Anniversary OD808 Overdrive will be available in late March for $199 (for the unsigned pedals) and $400 (for the signed pedals).
