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?  
 
Thanks

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.
