Behringer TO800 Vintage Tube Overdrive

Overdrive Floor Effect DeviceNow you can enjoy biting, tube-like distortion, creamy sustain and super-fat sounds modeled after the legendary green magic box under the effect pedals.

With the goal of reproducing the authentic vintage sound, we used Original 4558 operational amplifiers and the legendary MA150 distortion diodes. Separate drive, tone and level controls offer you extensive sound design options. Operation without noises is ensured by a first-class on / off switch. A status LED for effect activation and battery check provides additional ease of use. Power is supplied by a 9-volt battery or a DC adapter (not included).

A bargain Tube screamer that rivals the original!
Vepar, 06.09.2019
This is the tube screamer, and not just any tube screamer, but the original one! There is literally no difference in sound whatsoever! The controls are familliar, and it works the same. Gain on minimum, level at maximum, tone in the middle for a boost, everything else for a good overdrive.

The build quality is like any other Behringer pedal of this range however and that means plastic all over with wonky connectors. The knobs are ok though. But for a approx. $20 pedal, it's no surprise, nor does it matter in this case because most people will have it on all the time without stomping on it too much (as a boost).

If you never tried a Tube screamer as a boost, this is the best one to get to see if you like/need a tube screamer in your life. It's affordable and the sound is (at least to me) indistinguishable from the real thing. Later, you might want to upgrade to a real one in case you need a sturdier pedal, but for a pedal that stays on and isn't stomped on, this one will last a while too!

It's amazing value for the price!

This pedal survived years of abuse
Press K, 02.07.2020
I've had this little pedal for years now. Its coloring has faded from being exposed to the sun for too long, its rubber cover on the step portion has fallen off...

But the thing still works. For the money I paid for it years ago, I've gotten a ton of value back.

Its pots do feel wonky and it's sometimes hard to get the tone you are looking for out of it. Stepping on the pedal will sometimes turn it on and off as the button below it is not super-reliable. Replacing the battery is always an annoyance due to how the thing is put together — you need to push a spring mechanism in from both ends, then do the same when putting it back together.

I've mainly been using it as a booster for my distortion channels, and it served its purpose just fine for that.

In fact, it still does — it's hooked to my bedroom amp right now.

It?s green :-)
NigelT, 20.05.2020
Yes, it?s green, it has a T and 80 in the model name... Just missing 1 letter and one number! ;-)

What it isn?t missing is the tone of another green pedal has! This really is as close as it gets to another pedal without calling itself the same name!

Want to boost your signal? Done! Want to drive the amp a bit harder? Done! Want to really gun your amp? Done!

This does everything the rather more expensive pedal does for a fraction of the price and, really, I cannot tell much tonal difference!

Great Value for Money
Robert924, 01.07.2013
As you would expect, it isn't as well made as more expensive pedals. The construction is fairly solid but I doubt it would stand up to much abuse. The knobs on mine are a bit odd too. The level knob is very tight and considerably more difficult to turn than the drive knob, which seems loose by comparison. The tone knob seems to be somewhere in between the two in terms of resistance. This isn't a major issue but it does raise some questions about the construction quality. For home or studio use it shouldn't be a problem but I wouldn't use it for playing live unless I had a backup.

That aside, it sounds great. It's pretty much identical to a tubescreamer. I use it infront of a 6505 as a boost and it performs it's job of tightening up the low end and adding saturation perfectly. Considering it costs a small fraction of what you would pay for the tubescreamer it's modeled on it really is a bargain.
