    I've built a DOD OD 250, the MXR distortion Plus, Devi Ever Sodameiser, and a Triangle Muff. The Muff was on a purchased PCB, the rest are veroboard. I'd like to build another OD, maybe something to replace my tube screamer. What's a good choice here? Could the OD 250/ Distortion + be modified for a mid boost, or is there another circuit I should be looking at? I'd prefer to build something with the components I've got, but certainly can make an order if I need a particular chip, or different value caps.

    Take a look at how the high pass/low pass filtering and gain are done in a TS and Rat and try some similar things in the OD250.

    For lower gain, try a Barber LTD Silver. For higher gain, try a Fulltone Plimsoul. Both have lovely mids.

    If I were to build from scratch, I believe I'd want a 3 channel low volt tube pedal that afforded me 3 distinct and accurate tones.......1. Blackface clean 2. Tweed 3. high gain Marshall.
