Add Tube-like Distortion to Your Amp with the Gunslinger

The DOD Gunslinger MOSFET Distortion Pedal gives you tube-inspired distortion and sensitivity in a compact stompbox. The Gunslinger's tube-like harmonics deliver detailed and complex overdrive and distortion tones. You can dial in your ideal sound thanks to the 2-band EQ. And by rolling back your guitar's volume, the Gunslinger cleans up just like a tube amplifier. You can run this pedal using 9 or 18-volt power supplies. In 18V mode the Gunslinger gives you more headroom with less compression and a tight, more open tone. Get the tube-like gain you want with the DOD Gunslinger MOSFET Distortion pedal.

Just got mine today and I recommend anyone interested in this pedal to try it out before buying it. It's got some good features and some bad ones. My impression is that it is a little too mid rangey for rhythm guitar but great for high note solos. I got it with intention of using it for rhythm guitar but it's much better for solo work. Power chords have a little bit of a big muff character to them but with plenty of attack which is something the big muff doesn't have. Wish it had a mid control so I could tame the mid range for rhythm guitar work. Very well built but careful when stomping on it or you'll move the control knobs. Plenty of volume and gain that doesn't get muddy. Great pinch harmonics and sustain but feeds back a little too easy although not out of control. All in all a great pedal to have for huge sounding high note solo work.

I Really Wanted To Like This.

I have a couple of the 90's DOD dirt boxes that I still rotate onto my pedalboard (the FX56 & FX66). I had the reissue 201 Phasor for a month or so (Pedal Genie). I didn't hold on to it (PG is a rental/try & before-you-buy thing). I already have the HardWire phaser (same parent company as DOD) & that sound is one of the 7 settings. Why I bother to mention the phasor is that it was my first acquaintance with the DOD redesign. The 201 sounds very musical & with extremely low noise. What made a bigger impression on me was that the form factor & build quality were impeccable. On to the Gunslinger. I saw the ads & watched the demo videos. No one around here had one in stock. Sweetwater had one as a demo. The reduced price got my attention. I bought it. As with the 201, the design & build are top notch. For a high gain pedal, pretty low noise. My rig: I don't play out. Just home studio & weekend jamming with friends. Both my guitars have ceramic humbuckers. I play through a Bugera V22 head, a Carl's Speaker Soak, & a 1x12 cab with a ceramic magnet speaker. I love the results, but like to throw in a fuzz or an OD for the same reasons anyone else does. As I stated earlier, I really wanted to like this thing. I just couldn't get a good sound out of it. I'm sure it was designed with a certain type of amplifier in mind (the V22 is somewhere between a Blues Junior and an AC15). I read in an interview with one of Harman's designers that's a limited production run. Maybe they could target the player who uses the rig that this was designed to enhance. Who knows. Anyway, I used a battery, & both a 9vt & an 18vt power supply. The resulting tone was really thin, brittle, & nasal; Mid-range heavy but in a totally different way than a Tube Screamer. With the 18vt I did get more headroom, but that's not really something I'm looking for. It was in no way touch sensitive. I returned it after about a week & a half. Of course Sweetwater was totally cool about it.
