What exactly are the differences between the SD2 and SD1? I can't seem to find any schematics..

Hmmm - more than a little different to an SD-1.

I owned this pedal in the past. Despite the fact the lead channel is very high gain (I hate high gain overdrive and distortion boxes, I'm in love with the use of more overdrives in series), this pedal is very usable.

Is there any reason for gutshots of this? I see the schematic up there so no need for a trace. But I have one of these on loan if anybody feels a need.

Hey guys, I need a little help. I have one of those clickless true bypass relay modules. In normal pedals, you'd remove the wires going to the anode and cathode of the indicator LED and wire it to the + and - terminals on the board the the module, but in the case of the SD-2 im not entirely sure. Based on the schematic above, it seems that there are transistors (?) on the anode side of the bi color LED. Basically, I'm not sure where to wire the (+) side of the bicolor LED because If I do so, it could skip the part of the circuit that switches between Lead and Crunch. The wiring on the anode side of the bi color LEDs seem to pass through a network of other sub circuits, but I'm sure somehwere along the line they unify to tell whether the FX circuit is switched on. Im wondering where that point is exactly because I think thats where I can tap the (+) LED of the relay model.

Please advise!

Thanks!
