Today I was reading a blog post by Fat Tone Guitars where Phil goes into Distortion and Overdrives and mentions the MJM Phantom Overdrive. I remember looking at this 808 overdrive based overdrive a bit ago, but sort of forgot about it until reading the post. I thought I would feature it today.
Here is the official description by Fat Tone:
If youâ€™re in love with the classic 808 overdrive tone but sick of sorting through all the clones and mods on the market, stop! The MJM Phantom Overdrive Pedal is here. The Phantom gives you the warm, sweet 808 tone that you crave with some improvements. The selector switch lets you go from a traditional screamer tone to a higher gain overdrive with some added low end. Now everything that you didnâ€™t like about the screamer has been taken care of and there is clearly no other choice than the MJM Phantom Overdrive.
I found this video by rasomaso which shows what this pedal is all about:
You can pick up the MJM Phantom Overdrive for $165.00 at Fat Tone Guitars.

This pedal is fantastic. SRV tone lives inside this box. It should be more popular than it is. THE BEST 808 I’ve ever played and I’ve played TONS of them.Reply
