Maxon has collaborated with master pedal engineer Jamie Stillman of Earthquaker Devices to bring you the limited edition 40th Anniversary Earthquaker Devices-modded OD808.
Stillman had this to say, “The limited mod for 1-40 features higher gain, more low end and a different EQ curve which focuses more on the midrange while leaving the lows and highs intact. I’ve been calling it the ‘Mosfet signal shredder’.”
As with the OD808-40K and OD808-40C, the OD808-40E will be limited to a production of individually numbered units, each with its own signed certificate of authenticity. The unit begins shipping in late November.
The OD808-40E features Earthquaker Devices’ “Signal Shredder” Mod which lends a more open feel to the classic OD808 sound, with more clarity and punch thanks to an enhanced upper midrange, alternate clipping diodes, and increased output volume.
