Is the DOD 250 the same as the MXR Dist?
yep... pretty much the only dif is silicon diodes in the dod, germanium diodes in the mxr. which makes the dod louder...
Cool, reason I asked is I've one of these incoming from Tym Guitars :party:

I also remember the Captain telling me and innerflight that he once got a Cornish SS3 and cracked it open ( sacrilege to break those seals :paranoid: :hihi: ) to find its basically a Dist+ circuit :popcorn:
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.

Pretty sure my old Grey 250 had a 100k Level pot. Thought that was a stock thing on the 250's?! :hmm:
