"Jeremy and I set up some pedals and auditioned the various guitars. BTW, I broke out the old MXR distortion plus from REVENGE! The wah was my GEEK modified Hendrix pedal, and plugged into my old Marshall head." - also, when clicked on a photo, vintage MXR Distortion + can be seen indeed.more
I use it as an overdrive, as it has a really smooth fuzz character to it when backed up. Totally matched my Fender setup. Must add that I put in a new OP amp some day or age ago. Cleaned it up some bit, but nothing major.
I don't like this as much as the OD250. If I didn't have both of these already I would build one with a switch to go between silicon and germainium diodes... maybe throw in some LEDs and msofets too.This pedal is more distorted then the DOD, but the germanium diodes are really comrepssed right away and the bandwidth is so limited that whe you put it enct to a 250it doesn't have the muscle. it does sound quite good for 80s elads into a marshall... I'm told its great on a TB303 but have enver tried it. I didn't even know I had one of these until recently. I think I may have inadvertetly stolen this from a rehearsal space 10 years ago. It was there and someone thew it in my bag of tricks thinking it was mine and then I never bothered to give it back. Sorry if I have your distortion+ but you shouldn't leave shit laying around in a public space without your name on the baseplate!
