The FX92 Bass Grunge pedal was DOD's first overdrive/distortion pedal developed for bass guitar. Given the print date of its instruction manual (2/94), the FX92 probably debuted in early 1994 (although the oldest FX92 serial number we have seen corresponds to August 1994), which would have beat the Boss ODB-3 to the market by less than a year. While its instruction manual featured sample settings for Melvins, Prong, and Exit 13 sounds, as well as a suggested setting for vocals, the verbiage used in the manual implied that this pedal was not aimed at professional or even semi-pro musicians. The FX92 was discontinued with the introduction of the FX91 Bass Overdrive in 1998.

  • Controls: More (clean/distortion blend), Zip (hi eq), Stupid (distortion), Juice (level); the FX92 also features a "dry out" jack
  • From the manual: "The FX92 Bass Grunge is a special distortion box designed for bass guitar that allows you to mix distorted bass with your original sound. It gives you thunderous low-end power while retaining the punch you need to cut through even the most obnoxious band. You could use a normal guitar distortion box, but not only do they not have the bottom-end punch you need, but they'll even roll off the low end, giving it a wimpy "squished" sound."

DOD FX92 Bass Grunge
It is on a fairly robust and heavy enough pedal without battery: for example, I have a bass synth of EHX more serious penalty, which is nevertheless twice as large.

89-91 years very design with its green lines that go in all directions, one would almost want to press it only with Reebok Pump and personal, I found a cool.

Possibility to supply the sector or via a 9V battery, it has an output DRY intressante rather well.

The one I possde date several years (she tranait in store inventory since X time), small nuts for tightening tend d-shake (it's bte). Basically, I ressers a quarter turn before playing, but does not move after.

The pedal has four knobs with strange and funny names, but If you are not habitus of pedals, you will swim a little before to understand what button is what; because the knob "stupid. has not help you know exactly what it is ...
That said, you will find the description of the above buttons.

Finally, activation is quite hard plate button whose pressure is quite low. Fortunately the pedal is equipped with a red LED that lets you know when it is active. No I was always afraid of not having to press the button so the "margin of crushing" is very small (I'm not sure that we understand the me is ....)


Basically I love its appearance, its design, I find it terrible the activation button, the LED is thought (it's a must for me on a pedal), but I understand that is not done not unanimously.

USE

As I mentioned above with the knobs MORE, ZIP, STUPID and JUICE, you'll spend a little time to understand who does what.

Audiofanzine thank you, the rglages are: Breakdown Clean / distortion, high Eq (tone), power the distortion and output volume.

So in the end, a simple and efficient handling almost identical that of ODB (except for the tone that the little yellow Boss pedal is rpartie two areas frequencies).

SOUND QUALITY

Phew.

This pedal is capable of giving a support lgere distortion (call it a hi-gain like!) And another cluck sound supersaturated (call it a jigsaw on a can mlang a locomotive). L in the range is very open thanks to the rpartiteur clean / drive, and you can end up with a distorted intensity your taste.

The tone is the richest I've seen thus giving a fatty or high-pitched distortion and yet the palette between the two is full of nuances.

But beware, this pedal is meant when mchante same. You always find some aggressive fishing, and the distortion can quickly become "scabby".

NOTICE GLOBAL

I possde a RAT, and I had an ODB.

That l had my favors for its rich palette. His cot Orangina red ("but why does it also mchante?") Conquered me, especially as my various training I also found a sound that would not surexcit.

Even when it keeps a good batch of low frequencies! the tone gre only the high frequencies, the bass are "still", just as it should be enriched.

I advise and reconseille, people I play with are impressionns made by its amazing fishing and it gives. Other bassists also found that full pedal resource, but his cot Crazy Horse is a modrer.


In conclusion: I rachterais 10 times or 100 times if necessary. Yes I recommend this pedal, but take the time to tame and explore its potential.

I really find a similar ODB who, I think, the same sound possible luggage (after I'm not ing its this comparison is only my feeling), but its price completely shine and the fact that few people know the intressante makes my eyes.

It is a fairly robust and quite heavy pedal without battery: for example, I have a bass synth and EHX barely heavier, which is nevertheless twice as large.

To design very year 89-91 with green lines that go in all directions, you would almost want to support it only with Reebok Pump and personal, I think it's cool.

Ability to power sector or through a 9V battery, it has a rather interesting DRY output well.

The one I have is several years old (she was lying in the store stock for X time), small nuts tightening tend to de-squeeze (it's stupid). Basically, I ressers a quarter turn before playing, but it does not move after.

The pedal has four knobs with strange and funny names, but if you're not used to the pedals, you swim a bit before understanding what button is for what, because the knob "stupid does not help you know exactly. what it is ...

Basically I love the look, the design, I think not terrible the activation, the LED is well thought out (this is a must for me on a pedal) button, but I understand that it does not unanimous .

UTILIZATION

As I said above with the knobs MORE, ZIP, STUPID, and JUICE, you will spend a little time to understand who does what.

Audiofanzine thank you, the settings are as follows: Distribution clean / distortion, high EQ (tone), powerful distortion and output volume.

So in the end, a simple and efficient handling, almost identical to that of ODB (except for the tone that the little yellow pedal Boss is divided into two frequency ranges).

SOUND QUALITY

Phew.

This pedal is capable of giving a slight distortion of support (call it a hi-gain like!) And on the other hand sound oversaturated (call it a jigsaw on a mixed one locomotive can). Once inside the range is very open with the dispatcher clean / drive, and you can end up with an intensity of distortion to your taste.

The tone is richer than I have seen giving a fat or high-pitched distortion, and again the range between the two is full of nuances.

But beware, this pedal still wants nasty. You always find some aggressive fish, and the distortion can quickly become "scabby".

OVERALL OPINION

I own a RAT, and I had an ODB.

This one was my favors for its rich palette. His next Orangina Red ("but why does it also mean?") Won me over, especially in my various courses I also found a sound that would not be excited.

It still retains a lot of good bass! the tone is that manages the high frequency, low they are "still", just as it should be fortified.

I advise and reconseille people I play with are impressed by its amazing and made fishing it gives. Other bassists have also found this pedal full of resource, but its part Crazy Horse is a moderate.


In conclusion, I would buy 10 times or 100 times if you must. Yes I recommend this pedal, but take the time to tame and explore its potential.

I find it very similar to ODB who, I think, the same baggage of possible sounds (after I'm not sound engineer this comparison is only my feeling), but its price completely broke, and the fact that few the people know makes it more interesting to me.
