Kowloon Walled Bunny? or talk to me about yer Distortion +!

Postby Zounds Perspex » Sun May 20, 2012 10:01 am

it's weird, I've had this pedal since the beginning of the year and never used it much,
but I just tried it out with my new Super Reverb clone and yarrrowwwgaaah shit this thing rules.
I know there aren't many out there, but this is the ILF, so maybe someone else has one?

here's what Mr. Ben Adrian, maker of said pedal, has to say about it-

"Back in the late 90's, Russell Hall of Pound, WI (now of United Sons of Toil) introduced me to the Ross Distortion pedal. Soon thereafter, I found out that the Ross Distortion, the DOD Overdrive 250, and the MXR Distortion + were all essentially the same circuit. They all had aspects about them which I enjoyed, but they also had aspects that I found displeasing. I got it into my head to someday make my ultimate version.

In 2007 I found myself with Scott Evans and his three Distortion + pedals. He liked one unit much more than the other two. After diagnosis, we found that a clipping diode was broken in the pedal that he preferred. That inspired me to create the ultimate circuit for both Scott and me. I used big coupling caps to let through the low end that Scott uses in his band Kowloon Walled City. I used the chip that I liked. I put the diodes on sockets so the user can voice their own clipping. Most importantly, I added the Clip knob to adjust the amount of "broken-ness" of one of the clipping diodes. The result is the Kowloon Walled Bunny; an elegant take on the standard rock distortion."

anyway, yeah...killer! I'm not sure dude is making 'em any more since he's now working for a giganto fx company.
any Distortion+, DOD 250 love here? holler!

I've got a Ross Distortion. Love it. That thing has potential to be an always on pedal. Solid distortion.

I haven't played with it much lately though because that's just not the sound I'm going for at the moment.

I like my old Distortion +
If you want one though, grab the Whirlwind Gold Box --- sounds the same, but I think I got mine for $40 off ebay.
Good deals done with all these guys

yeah, we chatted about it a bit when I was "eh" about it but figured it merited further testing...now...uh, it's mine. MINE.

ha, I've heard about folks grabbing the Yngwie pedal - basically a Distortion + - for super cheap too. Options are always good...

Not to hijack this thread, but the Tokai distortions dev has in B/S/T right now sound pretty nice too.

If you got the time or resources, I'd love to hear a demo Zounds. KWB sounds like a neat pedal.

I use a modded Dist + (for more volume and a smoother sound) as my "clean" tone, and use an And Aardvarks to boost the hell out of it to get a really nice distortion sound.
