Video Review: Seymour Duncan 805 Overdrive Guitar Pedal


Review the Video Review of the Seymour Duncan 805 Overdrive Guitar Pedal below. The Seymour Duncan 805 Overdrive Pedal has been designed to create those iconic vintage distortion and fuzz guitar tones. Overdrive pedals can be used to get a crunchy amp sound or to boost the signal on an already overdriven amplifier, the most popular being the Ibanez TS808 Tube Screamer.  With this in mind Seymour Duncan engineers developed the MC33178 chip with superior sound characteristics, lower noise level and a longer battery life. The Seymour Duncan 805 Overdrive was designed with those classic tones in mind but due to the chip that powers the sound the pedal has significant differences from the Tube Screamer. 

While most overdrive pedals have three controls, level, gain and tone, the Seymour Duncan 805 has five controls. Level, Drive, Bass, Mid and Treble. The additional three-band EQ is the key to 805’s unique sound. While the gain range is higher than most traditional overdrives (8dB to 36db) the EQ section allows a great range of clean tones as well. The unit is powered by a 9V battery or a separate power supply can be used. The Seymour Duncan 805 is reported to be flexible to set up allowing you to choose a wide range of sounds, from basic clean, boost, extreme distortion, tone shaping to rock crunch.
