Spiral Electric FX Releases the Yellow Spiral Drive

Designed to be a versatile distortion, it's based on the DOD 250 but with some choice alterations.

Murruy, UT (March 19, 2019) -- Let’s get this out of the way: Tom Cram was responsible for creating pedalboard mainstays such as The Carcosa, Rubberneck, FreqOut, and many more during his time at DOD/Digitech. Tom is back at it and at the helm of Spiral Electric FX; the Yellow Spiral Drive is his latest offering.

The Yellow Spiral Overdrive is truly the swiss-army knife of overdrive pedals. It covers your “always on” tone sweetener, clean boost, dirty boost, low-gain distortion, mid-gain distortion, amp input punisher, and “unleashing the fury, everything on 10” lead shred-o-rama.

The circuit is based on the DOD 250 Overdrive Pre-Amp with choice alterations. The addition of the Nanolog N2 Quantum Junction, the Girth control, as well as selectable clipping sections adds a useful and modern spin to this classic circuit. The Yellow Spiral sounds fantastic on bass with none of the low-end loss commonly associated with this circuit.


  • 6-Position rotary tone network retains your highs but increases low-end “Girth.”
  • Very touch-sensitive, goes from chime to grind with just an increase in pick attack.
  • Excellent clean-up with guitar volume knob.
  • Circuit Based on DOD 250 Overdrive Pre-Amp with choice alterations.
  • Nanolog N2 Molecular Junction

$249 street
