All clips made using TS808 True-Bypass. PLEASE, PLEASE, listen to the TS9 page clips as well! Those are really the same pedal in a different case! The only difference is the chip and true-bypass (both small differences to the sound).

The legendary 808 with the finest, most popular set of tone mods you could dream of, The Keeley Plus Mod and True-Bypass clarity and fidelity.
The new TS808 offers a vintage look and sound. Many people are wondering if it needs mods since it's the Holy Grail TS808 with the new JRC chip installed. Sure it does! If you look at the board, it's the exact same as the TS9 and has the same "faults," if you will. Areas that need improvement are limited bass response that cuts so much that it appears as a huge midrange hump in the sound. There is also a limited gain range which means it doesn't get clean enough or on the other hand, doesn't get enough distortion. So to combat these issues we increased the gain range allowing it to get cleaner and more distorted through the range of the drive control. Also, the lack of transparency or muddiness becomes a problem for many users. All these things are fixed with our mods. Our approach is to give you the most out of this classic pedal.
