MXR™ Distortion Plus™

The Distortion Plus pedal is very popular and good sounding distortion. It is strikingly similar to the DOD Overdrive 250 distortion pedal. This project uses the same Ready-For-Transfer Printed Circuit Board Layout file that is used in the DOD 250 Overdrive Project on this site.


Buy a DIST Complete Kit. Includes all the parts and materials you need to build one, all for about the price you would pay for a PCB and parts.


Would you like a Ready to Solder Circuit Board for this project?  Note: If you buy the kit, the Ready-to-Solder Circuit Board (RTS PCB) is included in the kit.  You do not need to purchase this RTS PCB if you buy the kit.


The following distortions can be built with the DIST Complete Kit or the Read-to-Solder Printed Circuit Board.  The kit includes all parts for any of these versions!

  • MXR Distortion Plus
  • DOD 250 Overdrive
