I need to get myself a distortion pedal that's small and compact, doesn't alter my amp's natural tone, and just gives me pure gain distortion. Something affordable is ideal as well. So I'm down pretty much to the DOD 250 reissue and the MXR Distortion Plus. Possibly thinking of doing a BYOC project as well, but I'm afraid it might be too much hassle. In any case, I know electronically speaking, there isn't much of a difference between these two pedals, but what are their difference in tone and performance? Anyone used both side to side? Anyone have some sound clips of these two pedals side to side?
