The 4558 opamp chip and the Malaysia story As we was before ,the circuit of this pedal was conceived around the 4558 operational amplifier issued by Texas Instrument in the ‘70s.By all means this opamp was not targeting high-end audio but meant to be a more modern 741, and then received the modest ‘ general purpose ‘ sticker. Mini-jack power supply All original ts808 pedals had mini-jack positive tip power supply plug input.First experiences While Boss OD-1 was already there when the Ibanez ts808 came out, it somehow flew under the radar.Some would argue the MXR distortion could be near, but as we used it only completely cranked up, we totally missed the point.Collector-wise : is it right to spend so much money on an original ts808 ?
Of course, it was always possible to roll-off our guitar volume knob when engaged in a fuzz pedal to obtain something more coherent for rhythm—and then of course go full volume for fire-breathing solo.
As far as I can remember, the first time I heard this tone was from a Stevie Ray Vaughan track and it changed everything.
So don’t take for granted this tone has always been here : most classic rock album , the foundation of our music , did without.
