From Maxon:

In the year 1979, Japanese electronics engineer Susumu Tamura unknowingly started a sonic revolution. 

Seeking to create a circuit to compete with the Boss OD-1, he inadvertently developed a pedal that would go on to become the most copied, cloned and modified guitar effect of all time.

That pedal was the Maxon OD808, which was then rebranded for Ibanez as the TS808 Tubescreamer.

Known for its incredible warmth and organic, tube-like quality, the “808” quickly became the go-to amp-pushing pedal for countless guitarists around the globe, including a little-known blues player from Texas named Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Over the past four decades, the 808 has taken on a variety of incarnations and launched the careers of many aspiring pedal designers looking to build a better mouse trap.  But as the saying goes, there ain’t nothing like the real thing.

2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the release of this iconic overdrive, and to celebrate Maxon is releasing a limited-edition OD808 model in collaboration with Godlyke, Inc.

Using the current-production OD808 as a launch pad, Mr. Tamura provided specific modifications to the pedals’ circuitry that provide a more open, articulate sound with improved dynamic response.

There will be a limited production of 400 units of the OD808-40, and each will come with a signed certificate of authenticity.  In addition, the first 40 units of the pedal will be hand-signed by Mr. Tamura himself.

With it's unique tonal characteristics and undeniable collectible appeal, The Maxon 40th Anniversary OD808 is destined to take its place alongside the legendary pedals it has descended from.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!
