I recently acquired an Solec DO-131 St. Dist. + O. D. (horrendous name) as a defunct unit and fixed it up. I found the sound very pleasing and versatile. Apparently this taiwanese pedal has been sold originally as Electra 600D, then as Omnifex 700D(?) and as Solec name monster among others. As topology goes, i found this rather interesting as well. Dist+/OD250 style gain stage, followed by switchable hard clipping and a Big Muff style tone stack. Loud and versatile dirt design. The tone control and clippers are easily made to suit one's taste. This is why i thought this was worth a post... Couldn't find other demos, but for Omnifex.
