5 from 5 Simple kit with a good sound

Good packaging, easy to assemble and ultimately a good overdrive pedal for less than 30 €.

5 from 5 Very Good

Excellent overdrive. Sounds very good, very transparent. From clean boost to crying drive.

5 from 5 Overdrive transparent

Le kit est facile à faire et de bonne qualité.
Attention sur la V2, la résistance 100R est notée R10 dans la liste des composants et R8 sur le PCB.
Loverdrive est bien équilibré, plutôt transparent, et va du presque clair au gros crunch.
Jadore !

5 from 5 Amazing overdrive

Easy to build, great price, love the tone! Really transparent, can go from clean boost to quite a heavy overdrive, while every note remains really recognizable. Recommended!

5 from 5 Amazing sound

This effect provides an amazing sound, from slightly crunch to strong distortion: excellent in its simplicity. Also excellent in combination with other overdrives, as solo booster.

5 from 5 Good pedal at a very good price

I purchased this pedal because Im a huge fan of the DOD 250 and wanted to try it.
Not very far to assamble, but you have to have some basics on soldering and have some tools in hands. Instructions easy to follow, exept a simple typo that I reported and a technician came to me in two days with the answer. All went well...

The sound is great, and respects perfectly the soul of the 250 preamp, though IMHO it is not exactly a 250, but something in the middle on the DOD 250 and the MXR Distortion +

It hasnt the volume of the DOD but way more than the MXR, indeed. For the overdrive, it is pretty transparent and the knob performs correctly. I use active pickups and eventually a booster before the 250 and it works perfect! Watch out the drive knob... it delivers a lot of drive!

Im very happy with the pedal at all... thank you for your great job.

Deliver to Spain in 4 days, perfect package. Thank you!
