Old Marshall shred master pedal question?

Munk Old Marshall shred master pedal question?
I've been looking to find one of these pedals but really seems scarce these dayz.  
Where could I find a schemo for this pedal, it's the one with the black case, I believe was the original design.  
Also anyone own one of these and what did they think of the distortion quality and the low and on this pedal?

Schemo is here:  
Scroll down to 'Marshall'.  
I have one and the distortion was pretty good for the particular sound it had. It's kind of a high-gain tone but not like a Mesa. Not as 'heavy'. They are kind of noisy (mostly hiss) and tend to squeal at higher volumes/gain. I have one with a bad/intermittent switch (common with all of those older Marshall black boxes) and some scratchy pots. I even have the original box. Lemme know if you want it. I don't use it anymore and don't really feel like replacing the switch.  
Oh yea, they have a decent amount of low-end. Most of those old black Marshall pedals had a bass control and that helps. They don't castrate the low end like some pedals do.
