MXR Distortion + chips

Postby Russian Guy » Wed Jun 13, 2012 1:30 am

Hello! Vadim here from Russia. Thank you for very informative articles on MXR pedals.

I was just wondering, there are a couple of vintage MXR Script logo Distortion + pedals listed on Ebay (here - dseffects Distortion + and here - gearseller2011 Distortion + ).

The writings on both chip say 741CP which leads me to believe they are UA741CP chips used in block versions. The LM prefix could've faded but the leters CP are as clear as day.

What might explain this? Somebody resoldered later block version chips to script version pedals or MXR was just using whatever chips they had in stock at the moment?

Sincerely,
Vadim
