The new "Engine of Ruin" Dylan Carlson signature distortion is based on Dylans favourite distortion, the classic MXR Dist+. This uses the classic 741 IC, just like the originals and the two silicon diodes for clipping, give a slightly clearer and crisper distortion than the earlier germanium based units. Component values are based on my two favorites with some very slight changes in a couple of component values to fine tune it to these two units.
The pedal has the typical volume and gain as is standard on all these units and is powered by a standard Boss style 9V adaptor jack with no option for battery like all my pedals. Artwork and details were sorted out and a package includes the pedal and certificate like my other signature pedals.
