JHS Overdrive preamp based on the classic DOD 250.
In great condition, no original box and does have velcro on the base so is pedalboard ready!
Here is the info!
The JHS Pedals Overdrive Preamp is JHS’ take on one of the absolute holy-grails of pedaldom, the legendary, almost mythical, DOD Overdrive Preamp.
In 2019, JHS head honcho Josh Scott stumbled across one of these rarified unicorns, and couldn’t believe what he’d found. DOD’s Overdrive Preamp predates their legendary DOD 250 pedal and represents almost a prototype stage to that beast. Josh set to recreate this circuit and in the process bought another one – which had a completely different clipping stage! So he figured, let’s put both in one box!
This JHS pedal is a highly faithful recreation of those very circuits, with extremely simple controls that belie the sheer wealth of stunning tone you can coax out of this unassuming box. The Level control adjusts the output level of the pedal, Gain adjusts the level of Gain in the selected clipping circuit and the slider switches between the two clipping circuits in the pedal. Simple, intuitive, with stunning results.
Features We Love:
Based On A Legend
The DOD 250 itself is rightly one of the classic overdrive pedals, but THIS pedal is based on its nigh-on unfindable predecessor, the mythical DOD Overdrive Preamp. This extremely simple circuit provides buckets of sensitive clipping to take you all the way from subtle warmth to stunning, saturated overdrive.
2 Circuits In One
In his quest to better understand this beast, Josh from JHS actually found 2 different DODs with 2 completely different clipping circuits, and figured “Hey! Let’s include them both!” The net result is this stunning, easy-to-use pedal boasts a pair of clipping modes with subtly different tones and responses – both equally satisfying to hear.
The JHS Overdrive Preamp may be a recreation of an ancient, hallowed legend, but like all JHS pedals this one is built tough to handle all the stompings your gigs, sessions, and practices can throw at it.
Who Is It For?
Tone hounds and pedal lovers looking to get their ears around one of the absolute holy-grail overdrive sounds of the 70s.
