Precisely replicates the tone of Yngwie's favorite vintage DOD 250 pedal.

The DOD YJM308 Yngwie J Malmsteen Signature Overdrive Pedal delivers tone, tone and more tone from fat to harsh. The master of shred has always used a DOD pre-amp overdrive pushing the front end of his tube amps to generate his signature tone. Now he has joined with DOD to design a full-bodied distortion effect pedal that maintains definition even at the highest gain, so you can hear every note of Yngwie-fast runs. At mid-gain it provides a throaty, warm edge. Super-sturdy box from DOD has big knobs and silky-feeling gain and level pots.

  • Precise sound-replica of Yngwie's favorite pedal
  • Super-sturdy box
  • Big knobs

Awesome tone

By JR-9AtUl

from Edmond, OK

I have to say, I was a little skeptical about this pedal. But at for the price, I couldn't go wrong. Indeed. Yes the pedal is very trebley, BUT, with my JSX all I did was lower the high on my amp to about 2 and raise my mids to about 7 or 8 and BAM, super tone. Great classic rock ala Ritchie Blackmore Burn and Man on the Silver Mountain, also awesome for blues as it cleans up nicely. I love it. I bought about ten pedals at once here to compare and sent them all back but this one. I tried the Marshall Guvnor and bluesbreaker, HAO Rust Driver, MXR Dist+, Both Krank pedals, etc etc, This one was the winner for me

Great Pedal

By ibanezman_98

from Chicago, IL

To be honest, I have ordered this pedal at fist because I am a huge Yngwie fan, and for this money, I didn?t really care if it?s gonna work or not.I didn?t even use the pedal at all, until I have started recording after a couple of weeks. I was working with GT-8, trying to find a good lead patch for my upcoming CD recording session. I have a small home-project studio, so I have used GT-8?s digital outputs to get the cleanest possible sound and good signal to noise ratio. Enormous problem with digital technology is that it sounds too clean, particularly with distortion sounds (distortion sometimes sounds too synthetic).At that moment I have realized that GT-8 has external FX loop inserts, so I have decided to give DOD YJM308 a chance here. UNBELIEVABLE DIFFERENCE!!!!!! YJM308 added a whole new dimension to this Marshall patch on GT-8. This lead patch sounds way dirtier now, and YJM308 transforms digital sound into pure analog. Now, all my guitar lead tracks sound like I have miked 2 Marshall stacks.I also applied the same thing live. I use 50W Marshall Valvestate Combo, and YJM308 as the first effect in chain. I use it to boost solo sections. Again, unbelievable difference.YJM308 by it self doesn?t do much though; you have to use it in addition to your existing gear to reveal its real charm and potential. Now, YJM308 is a crucial part of my recording and live gear ? I never go anywhere without it.

Good with other OD's, horrible on own.

By Wes-1wbK-

from Michigan

All right, the DOD YJM308 is a great pedal. Only problem is... it has WAY too much treble. It was designed like this. The whole point of the pedal is to give you definition and a treble/gain boost. This is why you need another OD pedal pushing your amp. I have a Dano FAB OD (don't laugh) right after the DOD and it balances it out nice. I get screaming highs and all the while having a thumping low end. And all the notes are very clear and articulate.This thing can get a little noisy at high settings, but it's not made to be cranked high. This should be used as as boost.Overall however, this is the perfect pedal for your board if you lack definition or just need some high end in your tone.Great value too! Scoop one up while you still can!!

Perfect overdrive

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Don't forget, this is NOT a distortion pedal. But use it as a boost to your natural tube distortion from your amp and it is awesome. AND don't forget that Yngwie doesn't use SINGLE coil pickups in his strat, he uses HUMBUCKERS in the single coil size. I say this because if you use this pedal with a single coil pickup, you get too much feedback.

very good sounding pedal

By PLIWGuitarist

from Cloverdale, IN

I bought this pedal a couple of months ago and have loved it. It's got a great sound and it doesn't suck tone at all. The only thing I don't like is the odd power supply. I just use batteries on it. It actually does suck a tiny bit of a charge from the battery when disconnected because of an electronics flaw. But overall this is a really good pedal.

the worst pedal ever

By stringsjunkie3213

from Hubertus, WI

This pedal sucks. When i first got it it was great. After awhile when i turned it on the would squeal like crazy...not that feedback kinda crazy, it just screams...the first couple times it worked it didnt do that.

from Charlotte

well, when i purchased this i knew it wasnt gonna be crazy good but i was wrong. I happen to play in a blues band and a metal band. Anyway my blues band plays pretty fair gigs at ur average local bars and coffee shops, but during most of my solos i will stomp on this box to actually get a boost of volume and drive. It works like a charm, this is fair pedal and i like it

Pure Great Overdrive. Just what vintage amps need.

By Bob

from Hesperia, Cal

Ask me a question

I love my Fender Twin with the 15" speaker. Absolutely Clean pure sounds. But I wanted to overdrive the preamp section for lower level punch and this unit does the job. They are not being made anymore so buy yours now!

This is a great pedal that makes your tone almost exactly match "the man's", but it gives you tons of feedback at high volume levels. Only buy if you're going to use a noise gate or play low volume.

Definetly grows on you

By MillerTime

from Kennesaw, GA

I bought one of these a year ago when I first started really getting in to Yngwie. I was slightly disapointed at first, because I could not get that Yngwie sound out of it. I came to realize I really didn't know how to use it properly, just putting it on my board and playing my strat through it in to a Crate solid state. I imagine this would sound much better through a tube. It gave me a nice overdrive sound, but never really the Yngwie sound. I tried mixing it with distortion, and with the knobs on the pedal cranked, you could begin hearing that Yngwie sound. Problem was, the feedback was HORRIBLE. I finally gave up on it and took it off my board.A few months ago I was sorting through my pedals to see what I could get rid of, and ran across this. I decided to give it one more try, and I'm glad I did. I've never been able to get a perfect YJM sound from it, but I got pretty close by putting this with my Metal Muff, and keeping the setting real low on the YJM. I also decided I'd keep it, because it had a great overdrive sound for some of those RHCP and White Stripes sounds. I now have it in front of my Russian Big Muff, and it really brings out the character in that pedal, and gives it a sound I didn't think was possible.Overall, not what I was looking for at the time, but became an important effect in my repertoir. Also, if you buy it, it doesn't fit standard AC adapters, so you'll have to go through batteries, or get a smaller tipped adapter. If you use a one spot, you can just buy an adapter for really cheap.
