Ibanez OD-850
« on: June 11, 2016, 08:44:12 PM »
Just when I think I just about got it figured out, here comes something else! Anybody heard of an Ibanez OD-850? In a world of  TS-808's and TS-9's, here comes this animal! I couldn't believe what I saw! Never seen one before today (6/11/2016) and I didn't believe what this thing's goin' for!

Reverb.com, has th' 1974 version of this pedal with an estimated "used" value range at $225-$400! This one here's askin' $595 for this uh, well go figure! I thought maybe demand dictated some factors, but there's obviously a hell of a lot more to this than meets the eye. Sheeesh!

I can think of a lot of other items to spend that dough on............but that's just me. I gotta remember that.

$500 for a 40 year old pedal?  like them 'doctor and lawyer' guitars.

if i buy it, will it make me sing good and hit every note on the guitar that i should?  bs.

just like antique furniture, it's 'an idea', all in the mind.

I've seen my share of oldies, but every once in a while one flies under th' radar I guess. This one did as far as I'm concerned. I've heard some say it sounded like a Big Muff.

Anyway, I HAVE heard of a Ibanez OD-855 Overdrive II, so check out this vid with that, a OD-850 Overdrive aaaaand a TS-808 Tube Screamer! Interesting demo! Share ya thoughts!

i put youbute on 144p, and skipped around. now, my ears are clogged up with a cold today, but really...none of these sounded that 'special' to me.  a boss ds-1 will get the 'jagged' stuff, and an sd-1 will get the 'other'. put 'em together, you better turn yer amp down. no one can tell the difference in a mix anyway....at least, i sure can't. the premier guitar guy, joe gore, says-to the point of irritation-it depends on the context. yeah. does.

i got to get me a set of 'golden ears'.

although i did like the guy's technique...little hints of hendrix in some of his playing.
