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

A maze of modulation and reverberations leads down many colorful tone vortices.

Deep clanging reverb tones. Unexpected reverb/modulation combinations.

Steep learning curve for a superficially simple pedal.

A lot of cruel fates can befall a gig. But unless you’re a complete pedal addict or live in high-gain-only realms, doing a gig with just a reverb- and tremolo-equipped amp is not one of them. Usually a nice splash of reverb makes the lamest tone pretty okay. Add a little tremolo on top and you have to work to not be at least a little funky, surfy, or spacy. You see, reverb and modulation go together like beans and rice. That truth, it seems, extends even to maximalist expressions of that formula—like the SolidGold FX Ether.
