    I have a 1979 tan germainium Ross Distortion that I'd sell. Pretty much the same pedal as the Distortion+. I'm in Canada, so shipping would be fast and easy.

    Q: Are there any sources for 1N270s? (I've heard 1N34s don't sound the same.) I have an original, so it's academic for me.

    Oh yeah; these MXRs are a little quiet - especially with the spec diodes. Unity gain is only achieved about 3/4s of the way through the output pot's traverse. Replacing the 10K audio output pot with a 100K audio pot can give you a bit more volume.
