Output knob is not completely functional, cuts out about a 1/3 of the way.

In mid 1981, MXR updated most of their effects pedal and added a 1/8" DC power input jack, and utilized a DPDT footswitch as well as a red LED indicator. The components on the circuit board are mostly the same as in the pre-LED block logo version (UA741CP opamp). Some components seem to be from different manufacturers, although the values are still the same. Soundwise the difference of the two vintage block logo versions are quite small.
