DOD 250 Overdrive Preamp ReissuePublished on 11/08/09 at 20:22
The DOD 250 is an overdrive pedal designed for use with electric guitar but suitable for any electronic instrument.  It is an analog pedal that has a 1/4 inch input and a 1/4 inch output.  It can be powered by either a nine volt battery or power supply and isn't rack mountable as it is a foot pedal.

UTILIZATION

Using the DOD 250 couldn't be any easier than it is as it only has two parameters in total.  The pedal simply has a knob for gain and a knob for level and that is all of the parameters that the pedal has to offer.  Even though this makes it an extremely easy pedal to use, it does take away from the versatility of the pedal in terms of different tones.  I don't believe that a......

SOUND QUALITY

The sounds that are possible with the DOD 250 are pretty cool overall.  While I'm not blown away by the sound of this pedal, it is usable pedal and does have a vintage overdrive vibe to it.  It is definitely better suited as a pedal for live shows rather than in the studio because it isn't all that expensive and can take some wear and tear and is probably best suited for a simple boost of overdrive.  I've used the pedal mostly with a Fender Strat and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb, so I think I'm getting an accurate depiction of what this pedal sounds like.  There are definitely some better sounding overdrive pedals out there, but if you are looking for a good sound overdrive pedal that won't cost you too much money, the DOD 250 will definitely get the job done.


OVERALL OPINION

All in all, the DOD 250 isn't my favorite overdrive pedal but definitely isn't bad and is useful to have around.  I would definitely recommend an Ibanez Tube Screamer over this pedal, but I would encourage those interested to try out a few of the top overdrive pedals out there to see what will work best for you and the sound that you are going for.  The reissue of this pedal is a bit cheaper than the older one, but both won't cost you too much money and are definitely a good deal for an overdrive pedal.

" The sound of a good distortion"

Pedal overdrive / distortion modified by Analogman. Here the components are changed to the original, where the price of the change.

UTILIZATION

Two buttons to adjust the level of distortion (gain) and output level (Level). Simple and precise use. No dial tone, you have to play with the tone of the guitar.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound resembles quite closely to my MXR distortion + period rather than an overdrive, but less fat. This pedal is very responsive to attack, very clear to the chords, in the fine nuances. She starts in overdrive to finish on a distortion. As it is difficult to find the distortion sound you want, we are forced to have several. This one is very clean, it can also......

She starts in overdrive to finish on a distortion. As it is difficult to find the distortion sound you want, we are forced to have several. This one is very clean, it can also serve as a booster if the distortion is adjusted to zero. Analogman also proposes to add a diode that lights up when switching the pedal. Mine does not have one, it's not embarrassing. I also have an MXR overdrive, it's not the same thing.

OVERALL OPINION

A very nice little pretty heavy still pedal. We feel the quality of the housing. She is special, as its color, and this version "prepared" is a good answer. The price meets the requirements.

Little yellow pedal (size of a MXR), enough to look vintage.
Knobs on, there are not many, of a "gain" and "volume".
The rest is simple, one input, one output and a power supply 9v format mini-jack (Grrr)
7 / 10 format for power ...

UTILIZATION

I bought this for me as a clean boost with my Telecaster and crunch to my other guitars.

In my line of effect:
Guitar -> Dunlop Cry Baby -> DOD OD250 -> Electro-Harmonix Big Muff (Russian) -> DOD FX87 "The Edge" -> MXR M134 Stereo Chorus -> Guyatone 107 "Moving Box" -> Amp

SOUND QUALITY

My settings are used regardless of the guitar:
2 / 3 of the gain and volume at noon.

SOUND QUALITY

My settings are used regardless of the guitar:
2 / 3 of the gain and volume at noon.
With the Telecaster, it can boost the volume of clean with a very light crunch if you really attack the strings (in a very nice solo ...).
Lead to a channel, it really boosts the gain, we see the difference altogether, it really gives a grain "70 Rock" '.
Indeed, this pedal is not very neutral, but its texture is quite nice, it amplifies a lot mids and bass and treble makes it less aggressive, more whistled.
With my ESP EC-1000, the 250 allows for a super good bluesy crunch when it is switched on clean, a crunch that responds well to attack the game really well.
The lead, it's downright huge, to make a heavy amp JCM800 this type should be the ideal ...

In short, I really appreciate this little pedal, I thought it would be against by far more neutral than that ... but hey, its texture does not displease me.

OVERALL OPINION

Just fine for the use I want to do ... a bit feeble to be used as a clean OD ...
I think it's a copy of the MXR Micro Amp (although the pattern is almost identical to that of a Dist +).
For the price it's worth (€ 41 on some German sites VPC), there is not too much competition.
Its weak point, the power supply of P ***** format mini-jack ... but hey, it's not just making this DOD, Electro - Harmonix also ...
