The Seymour Duncan 805 Overdrive pedal utilizes the infamous green overdrive chip to generate a rich and velvety breakup that just oozes from your axe to your amplifier. You have a dynamic gain control, a powerful level control, and active three-band EQ control at your disposal to craft your sonic signature to your heart's desire. True-bypass circuitry preserves the original character of your signal even when this pedal is disengaged, and a compact size won't eat up space on your pedalboard during your set. This little overdrive pedal pushes your signal to its max in warm tube-like overdriven fashion.
The Legendary Green Overdrive Chip
Your Seymour Duncan 805 Overdrive pedal is built with that irresistible green overdrive chip to forge a screaming output that simply will not be ignored. When you play around with your gain and level controls, you'll notice how quickly the overdrive begins to trickle in through your amplifier. You'll also notice how well this pedal responds to the subtleness of your performance and your guitar's volume/tone settings. Play around with each dial to hear your axe's natural character flow through in a rich and silky distortion.
The Power of Active Three-Band EQ Control
Many effects pedals fail to go the extra mile due to their passive EQ control design. The active design on your 805 Overdrive pedal boasts powerful EQ manipulation for your rocking pleasure. You have +/-11 dB of movement at 90 Hz, +/-11 dB of movement at 750 Hz, and +/-12 dB of movement at 2.1 kHz. You'll struggle to find another "screaming" overdrive pedal that commands EQ movement as skillfully as this compact companion does.
Massive Gain and Level Range
Because this pedal can take up to 18 volts of power, it boasts a lot of headroom via its level control. If you keep your gain settings low, you can use your 805 Overdrive pedal as a clean signal boost. Even at low settings, the gain control really fuels your signal with an addicting tube-amp-like color. You can also "stack" the overdrive on this pedal with your amplifier's overdrive setting for a flood of fat breakup -just the ticket for any metal or hard rock enthusiast.
