Loosely based on the 1978 Distortion plus and the 1977 DOD 250 grey box, the YellowJacket is a must-have.
I initially had the idea for this pedal when i needed to free up some space on my board. I have always stacked two distortion plus pedals, so i decided to make one pedal with both. Since i was doing that, i decided to take it further & put my own twist on it.
The yellow side has germanium diodes, which give you the warmer sound. the red side has silicon, which give you more crunch.
When both sides are activated, the red side's volume control will act as a master volume, so you can increase the yellow side's gain even further, by cranking the volume as well.
Additionally, there are two trim pots inside. These are clean boosts, for up to 20db for each side. Out of the box, they are set at unity, but you can easily open the back up & experiment.
There are many different flavors of the DOD250/Dist+ & I could have included different toggles, or order switching... but i wanted something simple. something you would mess with for a few seconds & just play. Sometimes, I find myself playing with the pedal more than the guitar, and i wanted to avoid that.
