I think I might have read something about which circuit revision / original OR year they were based on before, but I'm not recalling where at the moment. Does anyone remember?

Well, my OR80M OVERDRIVE reissue is pretty much an exact copy of my 1978 OR80M OVERDRIVE...

Cool. Sound-wise as well as circuit-wise? Do you have a preference for one or the other for any reason?

I believe that they have different output transformers - not sure if the transformers they used in the 70's were still available.

They sound pretty close - I always attributed the differences up to different tubes...
