New Maxon Overdrive

The new Maxon Apex808, designed by Tubescreamer creator Susumu Tamura, allows the user to capture the sounds and feel of the best vintage Tubescreamer without having to play through or pay thousands to do so.

He developed the Apex808 after meticulous analysis of over 100 vintage and current production Tubescreamer/808 variants over a period of 3 years, to find the best sounding IC’s.

This hand-selected IC offers the added benefit of changing the overtone components of the signal based on input level.

At low levels, the Apex808 generates primarily even-order harmonics. When the input level is increased, the Apex808 generates a blend of even- and odd-order harmonics, creating an overtone series that imitates the preamp and power sections of a tube amp with remarkable accuracy.

We can’t wait to play one…
