i borrowed my bros maxon 808 and ran it as a gain boost in front of my B-52 at100
and made a big difference in my tone. but money is tight these days , so anyone know of a cheaper od that sounds really similar to the 808?

green screamer or bad monkey, try those 2 and see which you like best. Screamer should be around $50, Bad Monkey around $40.

the tonelok series? no. It's got vaguely similar circuitry and plastic housing. Doesn't sound nearly as good.

The BBE Green Screamer is my suggestion, it's actually got true bypass, which I like. The Boss OD-1 and Digitech Bad Monkey would be two other suggestions. They're all similar to tubescreamers, though not exactly on the money for an 808. I actually prefer the Green Screamer, it's very dynamic and sounds better imo.

The Green Screamer is actually on sale this weekend for only $30 at guitar center. I heard it on the radio.

TS9; Mine gives a remarkably similar tone to my Blues Junior driven, especially for a 9V solid-state overdrive pedal.
