    ...the green one, 2nd row from the top all the way on the right...

    Serial #: 6

    Demeter FOD-1...oh, my, gosh.
    combines a mid-boost, switchable germanium/silicon diodes, and warm overdrive into one unit...

    MODS: i'll replace picture with a pedal specific one as soon as they send it to me...I don't like stealing bandwidth.

    Marvellous paint job. I always found the Demeter design a bit boring, but that looks good. Hard to decide which one to take, I guess.

    Tell us more about the sound once you got familiar with it!

    BTW, what does the little switch on the left side of the pedal do?

    i got one of the last 3....so...2 left...pedal will be released sometime in late august/september in the plain demeter box.

    the switch allows you to move between silicon and germanium transistors...hehehe...further tone shaping...should have it by friday or so.

    Thanks for the lead.....I've been out of town and thought I'd catch up on TGP and saw your post. I just bought the yellow/gold black one on the bottom right. This should sound killer!

    erff....$350.00

    of course, i'm doing this sound unseen....Adam @ Demeter stated that he A/B'd this against a Way Huge Camel Toe and ended up selling his camel toe to purchase one. *shrug*

    I told Adam that i was looking for a more toneful fulldrive 2 that would work with my hot cat (the fulldrive 2 sounds like cardboard with that amp...can't figure it out...) and give me some lower/midrange bite....the switchable transistors will also help 'cos there's something about a germanium "boost" that just sends me to heaven...

    lol...yeah, Adam told me...

    basically, i'm hoping this is going to be the FD2 killer...

    I have the mid boost in one of my strats and I had a Fuzzulator until a friend of mine got his hands on it..............so I'm sure this new combo unit will have the great Demeter quality, in a cool box as well.
    Enjoy,
    Rick

    yeah, never used any demeter products before (pedal-wise, that is) and this just was too good to pass up.

    heck, if i don't like it, someone else will!

    It's been 11 years, when are you going to replace the picture?
