The FOD-1 has lots of output and can deliver it even at very low Gain settings. This pedal provides everything from vintage fuzz-type sounds to furious distortion textures that are vaguely reminiscent of the high-gain channel on Demeter’s own TGA-3 amplifier. The Tone control is the key to getting the most out of the FOD-1, as it has abundant range and can move the tones from densely round and womanly to supermodel skinny (thankfully without losing the bottom) in a quick twist. The dual footswitches make it easy to configure a grinding rhythm tone and then click into Fat mode for a scorching overdrive sound. The pedal responds well to changes in guitar volume, making both modes very useable for cleaner textures when you turn down.
Kudos: Tons of gain and output. Excellent dynamic response. Like having two pedals in one.
Concerns: Mini-jack for AC adapter is inconvenient.
