Big Tone Music Brewery EQ'd Vintage Series Gray Box Overdrive


The original gray box version of the DOD Preamp 250 is perhaps one of the simplest overdrive circuits ever designed, but it is also one of the most beloved. The Gray Box Overdrive is a perfect recreation of the original, including the U741CP chip. “Vintage” mode offers the same small signal diode clipping as the original. “Dist+” mode switches to Germanium diode clipping which essentially turns the pedal into a clone of the vintage MXR Distortion +.

As with all EQ’d Vintage Series pedals, the Gray Box Overdrive features a powerful 3-­band EQ with a sweepable or parametric midrange. The concentric knobs keep everything compact, yet easy to use. The soft-‐touch relay switching system offers reliable pop-­free true bypass switching. The through‐hole (not surface mount) PCB is assembled entirely by hand in their shop in Richland, WA.
