Who's digging their MXR Distortion+ ?!

Everyone needs a stompbox.

I'm still looking for a distortion. I really liked the MXR bass distortion m85 probably get that again (superb for guitar) but must compare the D+ or Badass side by side which means I have to go to a big store and do it--rushed, noisy, & annoying as hell.

For someone who dislikes the DOD 250 & the tubescreamer maybe the D+ ain't for me?
Do the DOD 250 or Tubescreamer use germanium diodes? I feel like that's really what's unique about the D+ sound.
Nope

@elektrovac: I love my RSH-02 but the more I play it, the more I find myself using only the Distortion+ part. It sounds fantastic and I always have the opportunity to go crazy with the Blue!

Here's a rather ridiculous demo I made of the Dist + 8 years ago.

I've found the setting that gets closest to emulating the Distortion+ with an entirely different pedal. I used an EHX Germanium 4 Big Muff Pi: Overdrive channel only: Volume-Max, Gain-Min, Tone-Max, Bias-Min.
