In response to ongoing requests from discerning customers, Maxon Custom Shop is now offering True Bypass (TBS) modifications for the legendary OD808 Overdrive.

Developed by former Maxon® Chief Engineer Susumu Tamura (inventor of the Tubescreamer®*), MCS offers two variations of TBS modification to convert the OD808 from its factory-spec FET (electronic) switching format to a hard mechanical-bypass configuration.

Standard TBS:
The Standard TBS mod removes the stock SPDT/DPDT footswitch and replaces it with a high-quality “mini-3PDT” switch. This mini-3PDT has a smaller footprint than a standard 3PDT, providing enough room inside the chassis to still allow for installation of a 9-volt battery.

All wiring to the mini-3PDT switch is replaced with 26 AWG Mogami 2893 color-coded wire. A 1 Meg Ohm bleeder resistor is installed between the pedal input and ground in order to keep switching noise to a minimum.

S-TBS MODDED OD808 - $189.00
AFTER-MARKET S-TBS MOD - $40.00 plus shipping (buyer supplies OD808)
