DOD VINTAGE 70s Overdrive Preamp 250 Guitar Distortion Fuzz Pedal Gray Box

Sale price $499 Regular price


 Vintage DOD distortion with all the beautiful grit you've dreamed of

--40 years young and goin' strong!


This is an amazing little box--vintage 70s DOD Overdrive Preamp 250 in the gray box with original knobs and plastic grommets on the bottom. I had never owned one until this and it really delivers on the hype. For years I swore by a 70s Ibanez Overdrive II green box, but this DOD is at least as good, probably better sounding. Pure transparent fuzz distortion, meaning your tone, chords and all notes shine through but with a beautiful warm overdrive. It doesn't make a mess of your signal, it compresses it to a laser beam of great distorted sound. It's everything you've heard of and more. I want to keep it but I can't justify keeping two amazing vintage distortion pedals at the moment. I will think of this fondly once its gone, and then probably turn around and start searching for another! Thanks for looking.

Guitar Setup
My setup on guitars includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. Thanks!

I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
