RetroSonic Vintage Vibes Eight-0-Eight Overdrive Effects Pedal

The RetroSonic Eight-0-Eight Overdrive is a faithful recreation of the original Ibanez TS-808 Tube Screamer circuit and features the much lauded JRC4558D op-amp. Its overdrive circuit provides the same tone as a vintage '808.  It provides tube like overdrive effects while retaining the guitars original tone.

 Being a ground up build rather than a modified pedal has allowed Retro-sonic to provide some feature benefits up front:

- The unit is built with metal film resistors and caps for the best fidelity possible.

- The opamp is mounted in a socket so that you can swap chips easily.

- An internal trimpot allows for adjustment to the amount of bottom end content present. The range is from stock TS-808 to nearly flat response. The mids are not taken away, the bottom is brought up. It is a nice feature that lets you decide what the right amount of low end is.
