Maxon has collaborated with master pedal engineer Jamie Stillman of Earthquaker Devices to bring you the limited edition 40th Anniversary Earthquaker Devices-modded OD808.
As with the OD808-40K and OD808-40C, the OD808-40E will be limited to a production of individually numbered units, each with its own signed certificate of authenticity. The unit begins shipping in late November.
The OD808-40E features Earthquaker Devices’ “Signal Shredder” Mod which lends a more open feel to the classic OD808 sound, with more clarity and punch thanks to an enhanced upper midrange, alternate clipping diodes, and increased output volume.

More on EarthQuaker Devices:
Akron, Ohio-based, hand-crafted effects pedal manufacturer EarthQuaker Devices have had an unprecedented 2019 so far. In addition to receiving Exporter of the Year 2019 from the U.S. Small Business Administration in May, sponsoring a tour of Japan featuring the legendary Boris later that month, releasing their first ever artist sponsored collaboration pedal (Life Pedal) with Sunn O))) in June (and selling out in five hours), they launched the lauded Plumes Small Signal Shredder in August, and then a second run of their Life Pedal (which sold out in minutes). In late August, the street where the company resides was renamed, EarthQuaker Drive. Watch the unveiling here.
For the unindoctrinated, EarthQuaker Devices, top-six in the U.S. and one of the top-10 in the world, create products that are available in over 865 retail locations in approximately 50 countries. Its key retailers include Guitar Center, Sam Ash, Sweetwater and Thomann. The company has sold approximately 250,000 units.
Additionally, Stillman also holds a U.S. patent (Patent no: US9,.899.013BI, issued February 20, 2018) pertaining to an effects pedal implementing a switching mechanism between forward and reverse delay effects.
