fetRe: MXR Dist+
I owned an original MXR Distortion+ for a short while in the mid-'70's. I bought it with an inadequate audition 'cause I loved my Phase 90 and DynaComp so much. But this thing was harsh, raspy, but non-sustaining - I couldn't use it - but it wasn't ugly enough to be interesting, like a Bosstone. Your description ofthe tone indicates that you probably built this thing correctly... seems to me that a treble-cut circuit might be your best bet to improve the sound (as I remember it).
