FX86B Death Metal Distortion

U.S.-made (late 1997) and Chinese-made (VFX-series) FX86B pedals

DOD introduced the FX86B Death Metal Distortion in 1998, replacing the FX86 in DOD's lineup. Although its circuit was updated for the final chassis design, there was little difference between the two versions (and early ad copy simply referred to the new pedal as the "FX86", without the "B" designation). The vast majority of FX86B Death Metal Distortion pedals were made in China as part of the "VFX" series, but at least the very first production run was made in the U.S.A.
