I have had one of these for 25 years. Laying around forgotten in a drawer. I put in my chain today and couldn't believe how well it fattens things up. A poor man's Klon. No switch, you can't shut it off, but you won't want or need to. Just use the guitar vol. This is really a gem. It's a gray pedal with white graphics, no model number, just the name.

I bought a FX-10 BiFet on a whim & its become my fave clean booster (i've bought a BUNCH of different boutique boosts over the years!). It & the Arion SCH-1 are the only pedals I keep multiple copies of!

I had one of those bi-fet preamps in the 80's, it was the schizzle back then, as I remember...

Thats the FX10 Bi-Fet , black with an on/off footswitch, a vol and TONE! The FET preamp is the one the OP is talking about. Just one level knob. I didn't see any FX10's on the bay and one FET that was at $150.00 buy it now!! The FX10's are getting up there in price too.

I've got a DOD black Studio Bi-Fet 401.
Volume and tone.
Tone is more like a subtle parametric.
Had it since 1974.
Has an XLR and a 1/4" jack on output side.
Anyone got one of these?

Good luck,
DanD

Never seen one but I can see where it would be cool in the studio. I use my FX10 in line on a snare sometimes to fatten it up and it sounds killer. I could easily put that 401 to use.

OK, haow many DOD FET preamp owners out there? I see a lot of Bi-Fet, FX10 etc. The one I'm refering to is a gray with ONE level knob and NO switch

Btw, the pedal Tuberoast is talking about is the single FET version of the preamp- the 210- while the dual-FET version was originally the 410 (also lacked a footswitch, but had an XLR out) and became the FX-10. The two-stage version has about half again the clean headroom.
Also, the 210 is a close cousin of the Alembic Stratoblaster.
