The Seymour Duncan 805 Overdrive pedal. FREE shipping in the USA!

The 805 OD is a very transparent, classic Overdrive pedal designed using the legendary 808 chip as a starting point, but with an expanded gain range and a 3-band ACTIVE EQ that isn't commonly found in 808 style overdrive pedals.

The gain range extends from 8dB to 36dB, allowing for a wide range of overdrive options from mild boost to saturated lead gain. The active EQ circuit is designed to allow players full access to be able to fine-tune all elements of the low, mid and high frequency content.

Typical applications for the 805 OD include:
- Use for frequency contouring. Set up a frequency response that works well for saturated overdrive sounds.
- Use to boost level into single channel or clean amps to push them into overdrive and create essentially two channels.
- Use the pedal's own smooth distortion to create a rich, saturated tone even at lower volume levels, with amps that don't have a separate gain or master knobs.
