A circuit and component
replica of what's now universally recognized as the most popular
overdrive ever produced. Its signature sound of mid-boosted tone,
still popular with blues and rock players alike, is often imitated
but rarely cloned to such an exacting standard. The original JRC4558D
opamp chip is just one of the key ingredients in re-creating this
legendary pedal's classic tone and it's certainly no wonder why
our Tube 808 continues to be our number-one best-seller.

Ben Poole is a longtime
friend of Big Knob Pedals and uses our Tube808 to
kick his amazing solos into overdrive. He also keeps our Tone Boner, Vibe Tone, Octavius,
and Color Jumbo Fuzz as critical components to his current onstage and studio rig.
Check out this live video of Ben doing what he does best at this
year's Sierre Blues Festival in Switzerland. His 808 kicks in at the 4:32 mark. Ben's debut album "Let's Go
Upstairs" features some of the best new blues guitar performances along
with astonishing tone! If you haven't already, go check it out!
