I finally found a deal I couldn't pass up on the "new" OD 250 RI. SMD is like the new goop for me but it does have a few more components on the board than an old one and quite a bit more volume. I'm guessing they've added a boost or recovery stage. The range of the gain pot seems about the same and it's got still got the tone and feel of a good 250. I've been leaning hard on a modded SD-1 and a vintage Dist+ for a fuzzier drive. I think I'm gonna sub the 250 into the SD-1's slot next time out. Sure sounds good at home. Thanks to MilwMark for pointing this one out.
