DOD FX53 Classic Tube
Overdrive / Booster
3 knobs Anyway ...


Simple, only the Tone knob of surprises as we explik bruitdefond but gives a soft and round it is far from the screaming boss ..

10 c for use very simple ...


Its level should not buy this pedal in the hope of obtaining his lamp better vo ... a rat or a TS9 ... c instead, the last I used as a Bosst for its clean and my rat.
I put this pedal in front of my rat ca rounded sound c exellent! ! and then I use to improve the clean sound again ca ca softened and I rounded the CRADA a little hair.

What makes my palette ranges from barely audible through the saturated overdrive of the rat and gross saturation of my marshall.

The gain knob goes from clean to fuzzy the boost is still too prone to feedback! but it becomes controllable by single coil.

A model fairly typ forcment which will please no, fat, round see very dull ...


I find the sound of this pedal very particular as in some opinions Previous Big muffien some overdrive, but still very round and very sweet.

I recommend this pedal to anyone who wants a barely saturated his or her another boost pedals or even the distortion of the amp.
The sound is unique is very sympathik adds a touch to my pedalboard and which I never thought no avai.
In short good Pedal low saturation (not low) even with single coil.

DOD FX53 Classic Tube
Solid box, switch off and flexible, 3 knobs, level, tone, gain, config basic, but simple and effective
battery compartment on the front (no need to return it!)
Sector 9 v power supply plug in mini jack. I have the cord that goes to a CIOK Big John


If someone has difficulty in using this pedal is that it is reversed the direction of jacks, or that it is inappropriate ... lol


Niche: Hendrix, Cream fuzz, garage, Big Muff and well filthy, can also go on a low

this pedal was designed to imitate the sound of the saturation of tube amps.

it delivers a fairly saturated fat, low current, not obvious a fit in your sound palette
they go best with a sharp guitar SG type or TV, strato
however, the last two graduations of the gain, called "boost", literally unleash the horses and there's a fuzz in a 3 body marshall, it screams, it's thick, tough, bitter and sweet!
However this pressure with a ... c normal, but given the level of gain it sends
with the setting in this area, it was really his 60's, very close to hendrix, not be comparable to what you get with an upgraded original stuff, but not c the same price either. who loves it without having the means c'st a good compromise

it might as well do it on a low, one side pti Big Muff, or riffs garage, well ... yuck

Note the tone is not a boost but a frequency filter. ie instead of missing the entire signal and boost certain frequencies, he cut and lets those that remain, as it is softer tone.


IF you want to get furious and do a solo wailing guitar, no one can ignore that you're there, you need it!

DOD FX53 Classic Tube
- What are the effects, types of effects available?
The classic tube overdrive
- What technology is used? (Analog, numrique, lamp ...)


- Configuration Gnrale Is it easy?
config super simple, volume, treble-bass button, gain + boost at the end of the race ....
- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
Manual simple but adequate


- Effects are they effective, adaptable and sufficiently GPs?
Then the effect, I do not know if he imitates to perfection the amps of the 60s (it is written on the record ...), it should first know what exactly it is amp hundred but this pedal has a particular grain, GPs and natural point negatives is that the sound is quite bizarre in serious whatsoever with any guitar (tlcaster, the pauls, sg ...) and micro acute, this gives a hard boiled exploitable to use it properly, you must adjust the amp from it and of course, leave it according to what ... 'one who uses only one sound overdrive why not me is not the case ....
and boost (gain knob at the end ...) is super intrssant also limit fuzz, but again difficelement exploitable breath ca, ca buzz, etc. ...
- Which instruments do you use?
Tlcaster, SG and Lespaul


- For how long have you been using it?
a must do 15 years
- What is the specific feature you like best, the least?
the particular grain + sound
the - difficult to use,
- Lots of background noise gain
- The battery cover breaks easily (or you lose all the dod as of the time ...)
- Compared to other pedal the switch is not really top, too sensitive

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
No, This is my first overdrive, affordable era for me was the low wages
- How do you report qualitprix?
In the era, I think a c'tait very good report quality price.? I think the price is very good opportunity 35 is also a first for overdrive is very good Verily
- With the exprience, you do again this election? ...
I tried several times will integrate into my pedalboard, but every time I have I withdrawn RPTE, he needs a rglage specifiers it on amp cons but I keep it because its grain is particularly intrssant and I did not find the grain on another pedal ... in fact I use quend I need a simple config, just with a TS9 for boost ....

I post this review because 5 star for this pedal, I think it's probably a bit much EXAGRES notices seller!
