The GoudieFX 808+ is clone of the ever popular (or infamous) Tube Screamer, the sound of this pedal is so popular that I left the frequency response and filters as they are (LPF/HPF right at 723Hz for that characteristic TS mid range honk). However, I did add the less/more mod, the mod doesn't affect the tone or frequency response but provides less gain at minimum settings (4 vs. 10) and twice the gain at maximum drive settings (200 vs. 100). This mod makes the pedal much more versatile allowing you to cover cleaner and more overdriven sounds without changing the signature sound of the 808, hence the 808 "plus" you get the classic tube screamer sound with less/more gain if you want to use it.

The signal path for this circuit implements the usual GoudieFX upgrades which consists of increased AC hum rejection caps, improved audio grade resistors and capacitors throughout. The old JRC4558D chip is socketed so you can experiment with different op-amps if you want, every op-amp has a slightly different feel/sound. When you purchase a GoudieFX 808+ I will provide a modern RC4558P op amp, this op-amp is low noise, audio grade with JFET inputs. The original JRC op-amp is from the 80s and has poor electrical properties compared to modern op-amps, personally I don't think it sounds as good as modern audio grade op-amp.


Features

Socketed NOS JRC4558D op amp used for the original TS sound


Modern low noise RC4558P op amp provided free of charge


Two diode clipping


For best results I recommend using with Tube Amplifiers, especially vintage 50s/60s era tube amps or their clones


Not recommended with solid state amplifiers or direct recording inputs, but feel free to experiment, it will work in a bind nonetheless.


1% metal film resistors


5% metallized film caps (high grade, audio quality)


3pdt True Bypass Switching


Double sided PCB using design techniques to minimize interference, noise and parasitic oscillations/interferences. Including routing power on one side, while routing guitar signals on the other

HubBub

“The HubBub” – The world’s first Dual Mode Cable Hub exclusively designed for OBEL equipped guitars. Built in a standard MXR style single aluminum box, The HubBub is hand wired using Switchcraft jacks. Just flip the toggle switch to the right, and the HubBub routes the signal from your OBEL equipped guitar thru your pedals, back to your guitar volume/tone controls and out to your amp. Flip the toggle to the left, and the The HubBub bypasses the OBEL circuit and routes a traditional signal from the guitar thru your effects and out to your amp. The HubBub is a passive system so no battery or power supply is necessary. The Hub Bub is made by Godfrey Daniels Guitar Works.

Dual TRS/TS OBEL Cable

The Dual TRS/TS Cable consists of 2x 12′ Mogami Black Cables (1 TRS stereo & 1 TS mono) both with one straight and one rt angle Black Neutrix Plug (most popular configuration). Bundled in a FlexoPet expandable sleeve and secured with Double Layered Adhesive Lined Shrink Wrap for easy cable management and neat appearance. The Dual TRS/TS OBEL Cable is made by Godfrey Daniels Guitar Works.

Compressor

The GoudieFX Compressor is faithful recreation of the popular Ross compressor, all components used are low noise/audio quality to ensure the best possible sound from the compressor. There are improvements to original design, mostly around the power supply filtering for increased AC ripple rejection and improved biasing. Q3/Q4 transistors are matched to 1% or better to ensure a symmetrical/balanced guitar signal from the output stage in the compressor and eliminate unwanted distortion.
