  • NPD: Seymour Duncan 805!

    A question before I chat about this.. What is the difference between mine and the one with the cream looking knobs? Made elsewhere? new parts?

    I recently got my hands on this SD 805 Overdrive pedal and I love how it sounds, is it my favourite overdrive? No, but boy is it damn good! Been using it with my PRS SE loaded with 59/JB tuned to Drop C with my Mesa Mark III Blue Stripe!

    Very cool, congrats! Great pedal.

    I think the color of the knob depends on the production year.

          It is easily my favorite overdrive...and I use mine as the only source of gain.

              I would vote for the JCM800 cranked hit with the 805

                    Congrats! I love mine. It is my favorite overdrive for tightening a high-gain amp, personally. What is yours, then?

                      Airis Effects makes my favorite stuff for tightening up high gain tones! www.airiseffects.com The Savage Boost is great for a budget, the Brutal Drive is an absolute gem with a bit more control! (ps: use code "wheelz" for 5% off when buying an Airis Effects pedal at checkout)

                            That is bold.

                            Let me guess, you hit it with a pickup booster when you need more juice?
