Well yeah the trouble is finding a proper replacement. This one was made back in the mid 90s by Maxon and relabeled Ibanez. Looking into replacements I considered the Maxon OD9 and Ibanez TS mini but overlooked the the fact that they werent buffer bypass like mine is and are true bypass. Never something I really considered but having a couple pedals in the chain a buffer output makes sure the pedals play together. Thankfully the Ibanez TS9 current production is still made with a buffer bypass and much the same the older ones were even though its no longer made by Maxon so I dont have to worry about the pedals not playing well together or mismatching ohms that cause splatter and oscilation.
