There are a group of pedals from DOD, manufactured decades ago that have been making a resurgence as of late, and we’ve got one of ’em for you today. The 490 Phasor doesn’t have a ton of information on it, but we have narrowed the production date down to around 1978 (we think), making it a vintage classic that features some wild tones that ooze out of this effect. Can’t get much simpler than two knobs, but...

There was a period of time in the early-mid ’90’s where DOD was putting out some really experimental effects, and we were able to track one of them down for today’s featured pedal. The DFX94 is a digital delay, but it’s also a sampler as well, and boasts a full FOUR SECONDS of delay time, which was pretty unheard of at the time it was introduced, and is still pretty lengthy even by today’s modern...

FUNK. You may dig it, you may not, but no one can deny the effects it has had on pretty much all genres of music, and musicians from said genres as well. One of the key tools in this head-bobbing odyssey of slap bass and synth-ish bliss is the beloved Envelope Filter effect, made popular by a list of artists too long to name at the moment (just Google it, k?). One of the most revered of these filters is the classic 440 from DOD, who...

There’s been a streak recently here at Pedal of the Day where we’ve been able to test and review some awesome old analog delay pedals, and today we bring you yet another gem in this prestigious list of warm and warbly delays of old. This 680 Analog Delay from DOD dates to late 1980, and has had a bunch of updates, upgrades and improvements done to it recently, making it sound like it did right off the shelf more than 35...

Flanging can be an excellent effect when used right, and can really ruin a tone or song when used wrong. In general, most flangers I’ve come across have been fairly complex machines, often requiring lots of manual reading and experimentation. The FX747 Supersonic Stereo Flange pedal from DOD, made from 1996-1998, features 4 simple knobs, and is as easy to dial in a great sound as it is fun to experiment with. One thing...

With so many new effects with so many functions and big learning curves, it’s nice to come across an older pedal that has a couple simple knobs and sounds just fantastic, without having a bunch of bells and whistles. Today’s featured pedal, the FX96 Echo FX Analog Delay from DOD was produced way back in the ancient year of 1997, and was billed as a modern improvement on classic tape echo machines like the Binson Echorec...
