All DCW "Flight Series" pedals are authentic, vintage-based recreations of classic designs. Yet another Tubecreamer! While I offer the Tradition Overdrive, which is my version of the Tubesreamer circuit with my favorite mods, I have had many requests for a high quality, vintage correct TS808. Some players don't want clipping switches and extra knobs for more of this or that... they just want the real deal! This is everything you love in a more compact package. Some builders strip out the input and output buffers on their TS pedals, but I leave both of these in place and use 2SC1815 transistors. I also use the original G/W/S tapered tone pot. This pot allows for greater control over the middle of the sweep, the part that you actually end up using. You will find the legendary 4558 chip under the hood (and yes it is socketed in case you like to experiment without needing to solder). Many people eventually send their 808's to get modded to be true bypass. This does not change the tone of the pedal when it is engaged, but it does keep your bypassed signal from being changed when the pedal is turned off. The hand crafted Flight 808 is already wired for true bypass and that is the only change from that old vintage Tubescreamer you fell in love with.
All DCW "Flight Series" pedals are authentic, vintage-based recreations of classic designs. The Flight 250 is a recreation of the original DOD 250 circuit with all the vintage "grey box" specs you are looking for. The original 250 circuit has been tweaked through the years, but the Flight 250 is a hand built replication of that discontinued original box from the 70's that so many fell in love with. Some of the yellow reissues and later boxes moved to a 4558 dual op amp chip, while the original boxes used a single op amp 741 chip. Some other part values in the later units were tweaked to try to regain the character of the original unit while using the new chip, but the difference is noticeable. The Flight 250 uses the original 741 chip and the original circuit design. The only changes that have been made from the original unit is that the pedal has been made true bypass (which makes NO change to the actual tone of the pedal, but does improve the bypassed tone while the pedal is turned off), the power connection is now a standard Boss style center negative 9V barrel connection (No battery connection), and a status LED has been added for ease of use.
