Great catch mate ! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it. I’ve never come across one of these.

This is the first Roland series peal I've ever seen in the flesh, and I've been on the look-out for 10 years.

Cleaning and testing tomorrow :)

This thing is pristine. All that was needed was to replace the batteries and tighten up the nuts. Works perfectly. Pots aren't even scratchy.

Oh, it takes two batteries! What are the 14-pin ICs? The same OP amps like in the first OD-1?

The most interesting part of this pedal is the lack of a depth knob. How do you like the overall sound and performance, Laurie?
