Godlyke Unveils New TS808-TMv.2 Pedal: A Game-Changer in Overdrive Tone? Or an Expensive Tube Screamer?

Revolutionizing the Classic Overdrive Pedal: Godlyke’s TS808-TMv.2 Delivers Unparalleled Tone. The TS808 pedal’s original designer, Susumu Tamura has been perfecting his design once more.


In the realm of electric guitar, the overdrive pedal is a staple for musicians. The latest to hit the market is Godlyke’s TS808-TMv.2, a unique collaboration with Susumu Tamura, the original designer of the iconic Ibanez Tube Screamer. This second iteration of the Tamura-modded series promises to redefine overdrive tone, offering a distinctive blend of “more hair” and a “bottom-heavy thump”.

Tamura’s Magic Touch

Building on the success of 2021’s limited-run TS808-TMv.1, the TS808-TMv.2 elevates the classic overdrive experience. While the first mod aimed to balance the 808’s frequency response, the TS808-TMv.2 takes a bold step by replacing the midrange hump with a more robust, bass-focused tone, ideal for a more impactful sound. At its core, the pedal retains the “magic” IC chip, a hallmark of the original, complemented by NOS Toshiba 1S1588 clipping diodes for a unique sonic profile.

Design and Feature

The TS808-TMv.2 isn’t just about sound; its design speaks volumes too. It flaunts an ultra-bright gold status LED and a Tamura-Mod gold anodized aluminum faceplate. Each baseplate bears Susumu Tamura’s signature, adding a personal touch to the device. The pedal features a standard Carling SPST plunger footswitch, differentiating it from the classic square and rectangular switches of traditional Maxon and Ibanez models.

Pricing and Availability

This cutting-edge pedal is available initially at an introductory price of $299 for the first 50 units. Subsequent sales will see the price rise to $349. While not the most budget-friendly option, the TS808-TMv.2 offers unparalleled quality and innovation in its field. Unlike the 2021 model, there’s no mention of limited quantities for this release.

Godlyke asserts that the TS808-TMv.2 is the culmination of “countless hours of research and development,” marking a high point in their pedal-modding journey.
