    Style of Music: Heavy rock and stylin' blues

    "Awesome pedal!"

    Sound:
    This pedal sounds great. It can do so much more than just throw that insane amount of top end gain the master uses on your sound. Though it may seem like it is made solely for that, this baby can also produce some of the dirtiest yet clearest blues tones I've ever heard. The only complaint is that the pedal does make some noise. But listen to Yngwie's recordings and you'll see why! GREAT!
    Feature:
    The only thing it is missing is and led to let the user know when it is and isnt on. But if you are playing you'll definitely be able to tell.
    Quality:
    Complete steel housing and knobs and foot switch. It can stand up to anything.
    Manufacturer Support:
    Don't know. I have 3 DOD pedals and have never had any problems. I guess that is a good thing.
    Value:
    For 50 bucks. Heck yes.
    The Wow Factor:
    The way it looks and sounds says it all!
    Overall:
    A great pedal for the money. Absolutely a must have for any YNGWIE FANS!

    Style of Music: Stoner Rock, Blues, Punk, Psychedelia

    Experience: Active Musician, Tech

    "Mixed feelings, but I'm still with her."

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    This is a great pre-gain pedal. It's deceptively versatile in that it can be used both as a slightly dirty boost and an all-out overdrive sound. It's obviously not a universal pedal, but it's pretty neat for blues and stoner rock using more of a boost balance. On the overdrive settings, a gritty old-school punk sound is probably the most useful.
    Feature:
    For this pedal's intended purpose, the features are more than adequate. The enclosure will almost certainly never fail, and the limitations of only having two knobs don't even apply. The only missing features are an LED and true-bypass switching (there's no reason a pedal with a mechanical switch shouldn't have true-bypass). Lastly, the pedal is made in China which I feel is a step backwards for DOD (formerly known as "America's Pedal).
    Ease of Use:
    For a pedal with only two knobs and a switch, some tinkering is still required to sculpt a usable tone. Aside from getting to know the pedal's sound, it's a breeze to set up.
    Quality:
    There isn't much to it, but what parts are there look to be of a decent quality. The PCB seems like overkill for the
    Manufacturer Support:
    I only called them to clarify part of the registration process, and they pretty quickly answered my question. I work on all of my own gear, so I don't really foresee needing any help with it. Plus, the pedal wasn't made here, so I could only guess what their physical service is like.
    Value:
    Like I mentioned in the previous sections, I'd like to see simple things like this being made State-side. There are a couple components that I see myself updating before this pedal gets regular use (True-Bypass DPDT switch, new jacks). On the other hand, this beats the pants off a Boss DS-1 and even out-shoots the MXR distortion+ on which the original was at least partially based. Good luck finding a pedal like this for less than Same Day's $30 (though I wouldn't pay much more in its current state).
    The Wow Factor:
    This is a pretty cool pedal despite its shreddy connections. Very usable tones in a cheap package is the standout feature. The semi-gloss black finish looks pretty neat (though not as neat as the old grey or color-coded boxes DOD used to make). My "I Want It" factor was simply spending $30 on a different voice of distortion/boost to compare with the others in my stable. As it turned out, I actually use it regularly.
    Overall:
    I'll definitely be keeping this one, and if it ever goes down it's simple enough for a novice to fix. I'd be much more apt to recommend this pedal if my complaints about features and country of origin would be addressed. For being made in China, the price could go even lower in my opinion. Would I replace it if it were no longer with me? At $30, why not?

    Style of Music: classic rock, gospel, smooth jazz & a little bit o' country

    Experience: active musician

    "Solid, dependable."

    Sound:
    Just like the old days. It's designed to push your preamp tubes into distorting earlier, which in turn overdrives the amps power tubes. Don't buy this pedal if you don't use a tube amp. This pedal only magnifies your particular amp's personal sound. (i.e. Marshall is still going to sound like a Marshall only louder). This pedal was designed to work with all non master volume amps. This is why you continually see this pedal in so many professional rigs. If you use the pedal on a digital, tube hybred or tranny amp, then you'll have a mismatch. And your amp's tone can quickly change for the worst. Because it is not a distortion pedal in the truest scents of the word, only a preamp with clipping diodes on the output.
    Feature:
    You don't need an LED. Your supposed to dime both controls! You'll definitely know if it's on, your neighbors across the street will be able to hear the difference!
    Ease of Use:
    If you like the old Nugent, Aerosmith, Montrose, ZZ Top, Who, Frank Marino, Pat Travers, Triumph, early Dokken, Ratt, Quiet Riot and use old style non master volume amps (Marshall, Hiwatt, Laney, Fender) then you'll love this pedal.
    Quality:
    True bypass! Bulletproof construction. Roadie proof. Not have an led almost double the battery's life! Works great before and after chorus, wah and EQ pedals. Enjoy.
    Manufacturer Support:
    DOD has always taken really good care of me.
    Value:
    Can't beat the price! A lot of newbees just don't know what it's exactly for.
