    I've heard unconfirmed reports that the fulltone OCD is loosely based on the yellow box.

    Better question: which distortion pedal (boutique or not) ISN'T based on the MXR Distortion +?

    The rat is basically a Dist + that uses an interesting form of op amp distortion for its unique sound.

    So Keely Rat or BYOC mighty mouse. The new Mighty Mouse looks awesome btw. It has a 6 position rotary switch to change various diode clipping methods in and out.

    I think you can turn the BYOC (buildyourownclone.com) screamer or 250+ into a booteek MXR Dist +.

    Nice playing, man! I checked out some of the other ones you did too. Not enough tasteful players out there these days. Its' either "speed frenzy, smash and burn" mode or "lifeless body floating in water" mode. It's nice to see some dynamic, "from the heart" players once in a while.
    :JAM

    Yeah Baby!! 100 posts!!!
