    It actually was, at one point. They've built it in a number of iterations

      Got my 805 just yesterday. Very very happy! Aside from the applications mentioned in the manual, I really dig it as a bedroom tone-enhancer for a powerful amp played with MV very low.

        Yeah, it does that very well. This is one of the ways I use mine. I also use mine in my teaching studio, as the sole source of distortion, and it works well for that, too. It is my current favorite overdrive.

          I haven't try a lot OD's but I have a strong feeling that I'll keep 805 for long. I think it can be only beaten by Misha Mansour's Precision Drive, at least as regards heavy applications. But I don't wanna go down this road.
