DOD: FX55 Supra Distortion

Sound — 8
At the moment I play through a Stratocaster and a Laney LC30. This pedal has an incredible sound once you've found your 'perfect tone' with it. The pedal slightly lacks bass, but an equaliser pedal, or even changing the tone dial and the amp equaliser easily fixes that. The pedal is fantastic for most styles of music, althouth it does feedback a lot if you turn the level/gain way up.

Overall Impression — 8
I play a mixture of blues, jazz and proggressive rock. As stated before, once I found my tone, this pedal was perfect. This pedal is perfect for proggressive rock, blues, jazz and is suitable for metal, punk and Grunge. Aside from the fact it's lacking slightly in a bassy tone, it's a perfect distortion pedal; easily a cheaper and equally as good replacement for a Boss. If this pedal were lost, I'd definately buy another one.

    It's good pedal, nice tone and everything you want. Just not that durable. Mine broke after about 2years of regular use!
