DOD Overdrive Preamp 250 Reissue with Charlie O’Neal


collapse expand iconDescription

The legendary analog DOD Overdrive Preamp 250 is back, with over 40 years of history and experience behind it. The 2013 version of the legendary DOD 250 captures of the classic tone and wild heart of the original but in no way tames its performance. The 250 is better than ever before with true-bypass, a crisp, blue LED indicator, gobs of output, and modern 9V DC power supply input. Redesigned with a lighter aluminum chassis, sleek yellow metallic flake and flat black matte bottom paint job, the 2013 DOD Overdrive Preamp 250 pedal is the perfect sonic foundation to carry on the legacy of DOD.

The DOD Overdrive Preamp 250 has Gain and Level controls, like its predecessors. Gain controls the amount of distortion, from just a touch of grit to all-out grind. Level dials in some subtle body for "always on" performance or huge amounts of boost for boosting solos above a dense stage mix. With the Gain all the way down, crank up the Level to boost your sound and cut through during your solos. True-bypass allows your guitar tone to remain pristine even when the DOD 250 is off. This is a big difference from the original which would color your bypassed tone. The modern 9V DC power supply input make the pedal more pedal board friendly.
