The FX102 Mystic Blues Overdrive was introduced at Winter NAMM 1998. Sharing the same basic circuit as the also-new FX91 Bass Overdrive, the FX102 Mystic Blues Overdrive was voiced as an overdrive for guitar. The FX102 appeared to directly succeed the FX51 Juice Box in DOD's lineup, and the text and content of its instruction manual was also largely identical to the FX51's manual. The FX102 was generally well-received, and was retained when production shifted to China with the VFX series.

  • Controls: Level, Low, High, Drive
  • From the manual: "The FX102 is designed to add the right amount of distortion to a guitar when it is already running into a distorted amplifier. By distorting the amp and kicking the FX102 on during solos or extra distorted songs, the FX102 adds more character without becoming harsh. The FX102's haromonics stand out, and EQ lets you achieve many different tones that you could only get with two distortions. From tube-like screams to rock-a-billy twang, it's all there."
  • MSRP (1998): $109.95

  • Notable IC chips: two 4560-type op-amps

DOD FX102 Mystic Blues Overdrive
It's an overdrive everything from the simplest to the classic format. For settings are available 4 knobs: volume, bass, treble, drive. Taking power supply is well placed and the battery hatch for easy and accessible.


No need to read the manual to understand what is happening is right with the ears (provided they are flexible enough lol)


Connected between my Gretsch Electromatic hollow-body and my Fender Blues Junior, I used to light cruncher. The color is quite transparent and does not alter at all my basic sound, bass and treble settings do not allow "Scult" sound but to correct it by finesse (for my part I decline a bit high).
By lowering the drive it can be used to boost, it's clean and dynamic sound. However when you push the drive back to a distortion gives a little stiff as I was not convinced it is better to stay in the crunch.


If you find an overdrive to use a Tube Screamer type but without the pervasive mediums (sorry for the fans of the TS ...) and with a little less drive. This is perfect for blues, especially if you have a good amp, the mystic swells and twists your signal without distorting it. It is perfect to boost an already present disto. Its only flaw is that it will not radically change the sound and it is interresting that if you have a good basic sound.
