I think we should limit this thread to "what gutshots have you already searched for an not found on FSB..."

Any of these would be nice ... particularly the compressor.
Still analog and probably contain most of SMD inside, but I'm curious :wink:

+1

I had one in my shopping cart at Musician's Friend... but decided on 3 other EHX pedals instead.

That's my way of showing restraint. I almost bought all four... :slap:

:lol:

I realise these are hardly Boutique pedals, but I'm very taken by these old 80's DOD pedals that I've been collecting.

Image

Not having any experience with PCB soldering or traces etc, it would be some learning curve to attempt to clone these as a project so I'd be more than happy to take detailed photos, draw sketches etc (or as Dirk said, even desolder the pots as long as I get some guidance....don't want to lift those traces!).

Ideally I'd like someone to produce a layout / schematic for these so I could be free to sell them at some point, cash is getting a bit tight at the moment having overspent on a few guitar essentials and although these pedals are personal faves, I don't use them for my band at the moment.

There has been some discussion already on another thread about the practicalities of reproducing the Chorus as it uses the SAD512 chip.

I have taken some detailed pics of most of them (linked below). If anyone wants to reverse engineer these then I'm ready with the screwdriver and soldering iron :D :

DOD 490 Phasor: https://s721.photobucket.com/albums/ww21 ... %20Phasor/
DOD 201 (schematic already exists on the net, basically an MXR Phase 45 with some component changes)
DOD 401 Phasor: https://s721.photobucket.com/albums/ww21 ... %20Phasor/

Just for clarity, I don't mean to sell the layout / schematics! I mean the pedals!

Can't seem to edit posts on this forum?

I know the schematic is posted here. I just wanted to see the guts of this particular unit on my workbench. :lol:

I can't believe the price tag that old beast went for. :blackeye
