    I just picked one of these yesterday, and I am trying to date this pedal. I got these numbers off the pot inside... 1377833... D500 KRL . Thing is in mint condition, got it for $75. Any feedback would be great.

    That's a CTS pot from the 33rd week of 1978. How do you like the 401? I'm a big fan of the 201, myself.

    Hey thanks, I have not tried it yet. I am today though, I want to A/B it with my Phase 90. I heard something about a trim pot on the inside to adjust the depth of the phase. I'm not sure what I'm looking for if I think this needs tweaking.

    Holy crap!! This thing sounds fantastic!! Thick and juicy phase tones in this little red box! Built like a tank, heavy pedal. I love the old stuff. :drool

    That's the one that's based on the old Phase 45 isn't it?

    DOD 401 = MXR Phase 90
    DOD 201 = MXR Phase 45
    DOD 460 = MXR Micro-Chorus
    DOD 490 = Odd ball pedal. Sounds like a Phase 90 but with an added "Regen Control" which can turn this into a Univibe type sound.

    Love these old DODs, currently looking for a 401 but people have got wise and they aren't cheap anymore. Was hoping the new Whirwind Phaser would detract attention so I could snatch one up :)

    The DOD 201 - there's a blue one and a yellow one - what's the difference?

    The Blue one was the last production run. They were yellow before that and I think there might even have been another colour before that.
