Build the pedal that redefined overdrive
From SRV to Trey Anastasio to John Petrucci, this game-changing Tube Screamer-style overdrive will turn your timid tube amp into the tone monster you know it can be.
What else can be said about the TS-808 Ibanez Tube Screamer? With simple controls and the mythical JRC-4558D chip, this pedal pushes your amp into great sounding overdrive, WITHOUT completely changing your tone. It's like the amp you love, but better, and at a volume that won't get you evicted.
Don't buy your next pedal—build it!
We love the original TS-808 circuit, so why mess with perfection? We include the same JRC-4558D chip that gives this pedal the perfect mix of grit and transparency. We improved the little things to make this pedal even better: we added true bypass, reduced the noise, and made sure all of the components were top quality from switch to jack.
With controls for volume, drive, and tone we've kept the simplicity that's made this pedal a classic. Just twist the knobs and this pedal will bring out the raunchy tones hidden in your amp. Because the circuit is so transparent, it will sound different depending on which amp you plug it into.
It's more than just a schematic
We include everything you need to build your new pedal:
- Top quality components from resistors to switch
- Road-worthy rugged metal enclosure with all holes pre-drilled
- Bare or powder coated white finish

- True bypass switch
- Custom printed labels
