Product Description

The DOD YJM308 Yngwie Malmsteen Overdrive delivers unmatched powerhouse shredder tone!
To meet the exacting sound requirements of Yngwie Malmsteen, DOD worked with the virtuoso himself and created the amazing tone and overdrive qualities of the YJM308. The basis for this tone is a vintage DOD 250 that Yngwie has used for years. The development process required rigorous electronic testing and real-time analysis of various overdrive and EQ combinations before they finally were able to match Yngwie's signature sound. The YJM308 features Gain and Level controls and a bypass footswitch.

When I was a kid in Sweden back in 1978, I bought my first DOD 250 pedal. This preamp overdrive pushing the front end of my tube amps has been a key element to my tone ever since. Like most handwired vintage equipment of the era, there is some variety in the sound between my different old gray pedals. DOD took my favorite pedal and used that as the reference to create the YJM308. Now I can always get my trademark tone and keep my original vintage gear safe at home. More than that, this new pedal sounds so good it is what I am using these days. I have not hooked up my old 250s at all recently. I am using the YJM308 for everything, including my new album. Not to mention it looks cool.

No LED, But Really Good Otherwise

Nice metal box. Feels heavy, seems tough.
I haven't owned the pedal long enough to comment on the reliability.
Your general opinion of this product.
As far as $30 stomp boxes go, you are definitely getting more than your money's worth with this guy. My only complaint is that it doesn't have an LED to indicate whether it is on or off.
Maybe a little on the brighter side on tone.
Looks great. Better than I expected for a $30 pedal.

Excellent overdrive.
Great quality, but I wish they'd have made a battery door...
It's a DOD... It's gonna last a while, and so far it has.
Your general opinion of this product.
Like I said, excellent pedal, amazing sound.
Extremely easy to use, just step on the button and you have instant overdrive. And the knobs are large enough that you can change em while playing.
Thick, punchy, metallic sound. Great OD sound.
...Good?

Great for light bass overdrive!
Very well made for $30. It's good to see companies putting out low budget quality stuff!
I've only had it a few weeks, but the construction seems solid. Metal casing and jacks.
Your general opinion of this product.
For the price you can't complain. If it were true bypass and had an LED I'd be willing to pay double for it.

I use it for subtle breakup. It can get heavier, but I like a low noise signal and just want it to bring out the higher harmonics.

Good, but not perfect
Your general opinion of this product.
It gave me a much better sound than my reverb. Note: This made my volume very low and I had to boost my volume up all the way to hear it. This may be that the battery included is old or weak.

Great product but cuts too much low end for an overdrive
Simple all metal construction and a classic switch make this a very dependable pedal.
I've been using this for a month now and it's built like a tank. I'm so glad DOD is done with their 90's footswitch design. I used to go through those regularly. Solid metal construction, simple.
Your general opinion of this product.
I'm no Yngwie fan and I don't play metal but I originally bought this after reading reviews as a main overdrive. Although it sounds great, it cuts out too much low end, but I'm now using it as a lead booster and it serves fantastically for that. Amazing price for the construction quality, sound and true bypass wiring.
You'd think that most pedal controls are easy to get to, but I use a Danelectro Cool Cat with some of the hardest to reach knobs I've ever seen in a pedal, so kudos to DOD for not straying from simplicity.
If this didn't cut out so many lows, it would be the world's perfect overdrive pedal. Maybe put a tone knob on this thing and it would have sealed the deal. Still a great overdrive/lead booster for the price.
I prefer my gear to look classic rather than pointy/heavy metal, so I'm surprised the Yngwie designed pedal actually looks good and not like a Yngwie hairstylist got a hold of it. Solid, simple, black, and love those classic knobs. Seeing Yngwie's signature on the side brings a good chuckle to me every time I see it.
Pedal comes with optional rubber feet in the box - you'll want to put those puppies on if you're not using a pedal board.

Best overdrive pedal on the market dollar for dollar!
Steel enclosure. Old-school metal switch. Built like a tank for $30.
I've only had it for a couple of weeks, but I've had many DOD products over the years. I've never had a problem with any DOD pedal.
Your general opinion of this product.
You can't beat it for the price.
If you can't figure out how to work this pedal go jump off a tall building. My 2 year old son already knows how to work it.
I use it mainly as a boost for my solos. I probably wouldn't use it as my main source of distortion. The tone seems a little 'thin' for my tastes, but everybody likes a little different sound. Try it out, you may love the tone.
Clean and simple.
Switch works great, how can you screw that up?
