If a pedal could be a woman, this would be it

    I just recieved a dod 250 today and only after 5 minutes of playing with it I knew this pedal is great......for me. I use a usa fender jazz with flats. I play alt rock with a lot of 8th notes used (Pixie...sh). This should do a great job to greese up my tone.

    I find that it easly resembles Noel Redding's bass sound on Hendrix's song 'Hey Joe'. First song that came to my mind.

    -Smooth but gritty tone up to a mild Big Muff setting.

    -Keeps the low-end quite well, except when you crank up the gain.

    -very touch sensitive. (if a pedal could be a woman, this would be it).

    -she would have to be a cheap drunk too!!! (only cost me $30)

    I'm glad I get satisfied easly.......

    Anyone else have any comments?
     
  2. you like your women to be smooth yet gritty?

    anyways, yes the 250 is really a nice pedal!

    Sorry, but I think if a pedal could be a woman, it would be more like this:

    Yeah, it was Tecx who had the good clips. He may still have them on his computer.

    OTOH, I was very fond of the DOD 250, great for subtle fuzz on top of your signal, but anything boosted significantly sounded like poo.

    I did however get pretty decent distortion running two DOD 250's in series, one after the other, but sold both in a fit of "oh my God, I'm broke!"
