JHS 808 Overdrive DIY Pedal Kit – Tracii Guns Demo

JHS 808 Overdrive DIY Pedal Kit

Build your own high quality pedal with genuine JHS circuits and components.

The JHS 808 improves on the TS-808 Tube Screamer. The most famous overdrive ever, the 808 was favored by discriminating guitarists including Joe Bonamassa, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Johnson.

Building on the classic 808 circuit, JHS Pedals added a three-way gain switch for more options:
Classic 808 sound that made this circuit famous
Open volume boost
Added LED-driven crunch
This is the genuine JHS 808 in kit form
Original quality components used by JHS
Genuine JHS circuit board
Sturdy cast metal case, predrilled
Step-by-step picture instructions from StewMac
JHS retired their hand-built JHS 808, so StewMac partnered with JHS to create this classic reissue kit.

True bypass: when the JHS 808 is switched off, it does not affect your signal chain.

This DIY pedal kit includes:
Metal pedal enclosure (4-13/16″ x 2-5/8″ x 1-3/8″)
Circuit board
Control knobs
Toggle switch
Stomp switch
Output jacks
Op-amp and socket
LED + LED mounting bezel

Detailed, easy-to-understand assembly instructions

This pedal requires a standard 9V DC center-negative power supply (not included) and consumes less than 100mA. There’s no battery option.
