Founded in 1973 by David Oreste DiFrancesco and John Johnson, DOD Electronics was later purchased by Harman, the parent company of DigiTech. DOD effects are popular within the experimental/noise music community, and are prized for their unique sounds. In 2013, the DOD brand was revived with a number of re-releases of classic effects.

The Performer 555 is a simple distortion stompbox, featuring gain, tone and output controls. The unit was discontinued some time in the mid 90s and replaced by the 555-A.
