    I've tried to use a script-logo D+ with my bass setup, but it didn't really work out. I think my G&L was too hot for the pedal, so it was just fizzy (even though it doesn't do that w/guitar), and had no low end or clarity unless both my bass and the pedal were turned way down. I've heard of people having good experiences with the blocked logo pedal's though, so give it a go.

    I restored a Block Logo from 1977, played it a while and it worked amazing. Only problem is the MXR D+ is almost identical to the DOD OD250 and a bunch of other overdrives out there. They all have their little advantages, so if the D+ doesn't QUITE have what you want, there's a lot else to try.

    so i tried it out. ive got they yellow one, the print is practically gone on it so i really dont know if its block or other. anyway, it sounded damn good. infact i was totally blown away by it. it really impressed me. i can get fuzz out o fit or balls the walls rat distortion on of it and anywhere in between.
