I know Tym at Tym Guitars makes/has made a bunch of Distortion + variations, including three different Bob Mould signature pedals (The St Paul, Beauty and Ruin, Sky Patch) and two different Ed Kuepper/Saints boxes! Then there's a bunch of different "Tymexar" boxes.
Plenty of blog pots from him but maybe start here: https://tymguitars.com.au/blogs/blog/th ... distortion

My favorite is MXR M169 simply because of the bass range.
Here is the video to learn more:

yeah that’s the carbon copy delay... i think we got spammed by MXR! the “here’s the video to learn more” part is kinda a giveaway... :banger:

And why bass pedals? That wasn't even the discussion.

Is the MXR Bass Distortion based on a souped-up/modded Distortion+ circuit?

Is the DOD 250 the same as the MXR Dist?
Smooth, dynamic, fluid violin like sustain, amp like characteristics, warm organic tonez - nope. A blind wolverine on PCP flying a fully loaded B-52 into the side of a volcano, the soundtrack to said event would be Stand Up and Shout by Dio - yes.

yep... pretty much the only dif is silicon diodes in the dod, germanium diodes in the mxr. which makes the dod louder...
