Distortion ++
« on: July 28, 2014, 06:31:16 AM »
Here is my weekend build of the Distortion ++.  It is said that on Springsteen's '78 tour, he had two Distortion+'s in his rig into a Bassman, one for a base tone, one to kick in for solo's.  This pedal has two GuitarPCB Distortion+ boards in one enclose to get the same effect.  Pretty basic 2-in-1 build.

Looks like you've got room for a third one in there. Nice build!

I would love to build this....I'm just not quite sure how to wire them together?  Beautiful build and great idea. Steve.

Cool idea, nice build!  Wouldn't expect that from the boss, but I know I'll always have a little soft spot for the dist plus-  one of my first pedals.
always the beautiful answer who asks a more beautiful question.

The two pedals are wired in series.  The output of the first into the input of the second.
