FX80B Compressor Sustainer

Three 'original series' cosmetic variants of the FX80B,
from early 1986, mid 1987, and late 1988 (left to right)

The FX80B Compressor Sustainer was introduced in mid-1985, and replaced the FX80 in DOD's FX-series lineup. The FX80B added a third knob to control how quickly the signal is compressed, allowing the user to have more dynamic control of the effect. With the introduction of the FX84 Milk Box in 1996, DOD effectively discontinued production of the FX80B, although one FX80B has been seen with a serial number corresponding to early 1998.
