« great pedal, big sound good vintage »Published on 11/09/14 at 09:19
Please note, that says not told of vintage LED power supply or 9V DC jack, but battery lasts a long time on this kind of effect. For the LED means anyway when the distortion is on ... guaranteed!
control volume and distortion, that's enough. no true bypass, the sound through the circuit before being bypassed. It all acute food on a pedalboard when it is not activated. Changing stomp and rewiring required if it remains in the closet and it would be a shame.
So as MXR distortion + clone of the old, it looks like him a lot, volume and drive highly interactive, but in general we remain faithful to one position, volume and max 50% and 95% distortion.
The sound? a killer. it's a bit more powerful and more compressed than the MXR (former), the texture is thicker, and if you push the mids on the amp is super hairy, fat and it rocks like never before. all guitars go well. Large siicone diodes are the job well and musclent sound compared to germanium diodes. Excellent distortion on the bridge pickups in general. It is a sound old-fashioned, not to the metal style but for rock, blues rock and hard rock late 70's, hard to beat.
I have a good dozen OD, modified, old, made myself or bought secondhand, I'm pretty vintage oriented and it is high on the price of a change in mandatory switch and it will pierce the shell to the led. It will make it unsaleable as collector ... but I have no intention of selling it!
