The DOD FX 55 Supra Distortion is an analog based distortion pedal that has a 1/4 inch input for your instrument and a 1/4 inch output for your amp or console. It has a compartment for a nine volt battery and also has a power supply jack on it. It is not a rack mountable unit, as it is a stomp box. It is made out of cheap plastic and I could definitely see it being prone to be broken easily.


The configuration of the DOD FX 55 Supra Distortion is really easy to follow as it only has three knobs - one for level, one for tone, and one for gain. These are pretty basic parameters that you would find on a lot of different distortion pedals, so if you have any experience with distortion pedals you won't have too much trouble learning this pedal. It is easy to get a number of different tones on this pedal and while I don't have the manual, it is easy enough to use that you don't need it.


The sound quality of the DOD FX 55 Supra Distortion isn't all that great in my opinion. The sound comes off tinny and isn't full enough for my taste. I have only used this with guitar - a Fender Strat and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb, but it is possible to use it with any electronic instrument. I'm really not a huge fan of the distortion on this pedal and I can't say that I would use it for anything as I have other option when it comes to overdrive and distortion.


I first used the DOD FX 55 Supra Distortion about two years ago, and since then I don't use this much or ever. While it is easy to use, the sound quality isn't all that usable. If you are looking for a good distortion pedal that is cheap, I would recommend the Boss DS-1, as it has the same exact parameters, sounds way better and is comparable in price. Overall, I would stay away from the DOD FX 55 Supra Distortion and look elsewhere for distortion.
