FX51 Juice Box

Both cosmetic versions of the FX51 Juice Box,
from early (left) and late 1996

The FX51 Juice Box was introduced at the Winter 1996 NAMM meeting. Featuring independent controls for low and high e.q., the FX51 was the first overdrive pedal introduced by DOD since the FX53 Classic Tube in 1990 (although the FX53 was not immediately replaced by the FX51). While reviews of the FX51 were generally favorable, it was apparently discontinued by early 1998, following the announcements of the re-issue DOD 250 in December 1997 and the FX102 Mystic Blues Overdrive at Winter NAMM 1998.
