Overview

Whether you’re looking to give your sound a bit of a boost or trying to find harmonically rich heavy gain with warm tube character, the 805 Overdrive provides the versatility needed for any type of music – blues, country, rock, metal, and everything in between. The 3-band active EQ, delivers unprecedented control–you can have a smooth, lyrical bluesy tone one minute, and crushing modern metal crunch the next.

The 805 is designed to be the perfect overdrive for pushing the front end of an already distorted amp, giving you plenty of output and tone-shaping capability, but can also give your clean tone a controlled boost. Scoop your mids or tighten your hard rock/metal tone in front of a high-gain amplifier. Give that solo a searing boost that cuts perfectly through the mix and give your low end rhythm parts controlled crunch.

The 805 is capable of any of these and more. Being a true-bypass pedal, it will feel at home on whatever pedal board you choose.

        Comments about Seymour Duncan 805 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I have 2 of these on my board. It is simply the best overdrive pedal ever. Seymour Duncan knows tone. I've been playing for 39 years so I know a thing or two about tone myself. It's built with top notch quality parts. I've been playing through the 805 for several years now and it has not let me down once. This will be my overdrive of choice from now on. I've been telling everyone I know about the 805. I would recommend this product to any serious player. Thanks Seymour Duncan. You are the best of the best.

        Comments about Seymour Duncan 805 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This pedal is everything the description says it is! I mostly use it to push a clean channel into light distortion, or boost and tighten high-gain sounds from the distortion pedal behind it. The EQ controls offer a lot of versatility and have kept me occupied for hours experimenting with sounds. It hasn't failed me in any function, from EQ'd clean boost to pushing solos into scorching lead sounds. I would recommend this to anyone who plays any style. After 10 years of playing and tons of pedals, I believe it's that versatile.

              Comments about Seymour Duncan 805 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

              Amazing Sound, you can really shape your tone with this reasonable priced pedal.

              My only negative comment is subjective: The pedal is quite light weighted (I`m talking about mass here), weights about 70% of a TS-808.
