Since it's a clone, I'd imagin it'd be almost the same size as the original. The original DOD 250 looks to me like a compact pedal and most compact pedals are in the area of 2"-3".
I have a DOD Death Metal(not in use) and it's 3" wide.
Judging by this and the original pedal, it's approximately 2-3/4"x2-5/8".
This is just my assumption based on intuition.
If you are looking for what size of enclosure you'd need this should help.

If you want the actual dimensions, contact PigeonFX and ask them.

I doubt it will be the exact same size, while most schematics cannot be copyrighted, the layout can be, and typically are. However, contacting the company is a good idea.

It most likely will not be the same size, but it will be within half of an inch. Anything bigger and it's not really so much of a clone of the PCB anymore, it'd be more of an oversized knockoff of a DOD 250 PCB.

It's not a clone of the PCB, but of the schematic. .5" can be a big difference inside certain enclosures.

It says specifically "Vintage PCB Clone".
Anyways, enough arguing. It's very silly to argue over something like this.

TS, contact PigeonFX. That's the only way unless by chance someone who purchased this PCB comes along and posts here which I believe is unlikely.

It is indeed an exact clone of the DOD250 board. That's PigeonFX's niche. They also sell PCBs for a Tonebender MK III, Fuzz Face, Supa Fuzz, Big Muff, etc. He started off over on FSB.

It's probably something around 2"x2" since it's square and fits in a 1590B. For exact measurements, Brook's quick to reply and I'd just ask him.

It was my understanding of copyright that the PCB artwork is considered art and falls under that copyright. Interesting.

As for the size of the PCB. Print out the PCB and resize it so the IC fits the pads.

And copyrights on PCB designs expire just like every other copyright. Since EHX/Marshall/DOD never attempted to renew those designs, they're now in the public domain.

How long is a copyright good for?

Mind you I'm not trying to start an argument. Just curious.

I'm not sure what it was at the time but now I believe it's 70 years or something similar. However, if a company disbands or doesn't pursue anyone infringing on their copyrights, it becomes near impossible to enforce.

Sure it has to be enforced by the original "artist" or property owner which is unlikely to happen. It then becomes a question of ethics.

Anyway, this has strayed off topic and I apologize. At least I offered a solution to size the board in an earlier post.

The DOD boards are 500x550mm (give or take 5mm as they are hand cut).

Hope this helps?
