What's inside a T-rex? (Mudhoney pics)

OK. So I thought I'd do some tracing. But look at this. No goop - but I can't help wondering if this really isn't worse.

Me too. They are extremely well made and sound quite nice. But clearly the PCB mounting makes the pedals very bothersome to trace and/or mod.  ;)

They make good stuff and the build quality is 10/10
Mudhoney seemed to be a Big Muff with a few tweaks, I tried one out but didn't buy
for that reason.

Yes, as many "boutique" pedals are hand made - including this one. And sure it's an overdrive - in my ears a fuzzy overdrive with a boost setting that reminds me of big muff. I've read that it has similarities with both a TS and a BMP.
