DOD 680 Analog Delay

DOD started it's effect line-up in the mid 70's by sporting the same look as rival MXR. These units were much more impressive than the less expensive commercial effects like Boss. The big blue units were replaced by the Performer series in the early 80's which were much more compact and then later by the cheaper FX series to compete with Boss. When this unit arrived it was an analog beast complete with 3 prong power cord to belt out a pulsing delay. When maxed out, it has a voltage controlled oscillation that no digital could ever replicate. These units are a lot more noisy than digital but then again a lot more warm, organic and natural sounding. The BBD chips in this device could only produce 550 ms of delay but what a beautiful sounding echo. For more info on the current DOD line-up please visit...
