Do you wish the Tubescreamer had more gain, less mids, and more low end? If so, you will love the
BYOC 855 Drive. The Ibanez & Maxon OD-855 is a close cousin of the Ibanez TS808. While the circuits are
very similar, the OD855 is more than just a modified Tubescreamer. The BYOC 855 Drive kit is
almost spot on to the original. We use the 4558D chip, 1N60 germanium clipping diodes, and
tantalum caps in all the same places as the original. The only difference between the BYOC 855
Drive and the original OD855 is that we got rid of the FET bypass circuit and replaced it with true
mechanical bypass, and we replaced the 1uf electrolytic caps in the signal path with higher quality
The originals are selling for insane amounts of money now. Here's your chance to try out this other
legendary Ibanez effect for a fraction of the cost.
