MXR M77 Custom Badass Modified O.D

Effect Pedal

The MXR Distortion+ was one of the first good sounding distortion pedals in the 70s (the name distortion is actually misleading - it was one of the first overdrives).

With the MXR 78 Custom Badass Distortion, the good old tradition was combined with new, sensible features. For example, a tone control for tonal flexibility and a crunch switch provide the possibility of choosing between two different distortion characteristics.

The MXR 77 is an even more advanced version, with a 100 Hz controller that can make the sound thinner or ensure stacking wumms. The Badass always sounds tube-like and musical!

  • Analogue distortion pedal
  • Modified M78 pedal with additional 100 Hz cut and boost control

  • "Bumb" switch for alternative voicing with bass and mid-boost

A versatile kickass pedal

John aus G., 03.03.2016
This is just one of many distortion pedals I have and I find myself using this one more and more. You can get some great creamy rocky blues licks out of it, as well as some deep, heavy low chugging rythms with it.
The 100HZ bass control and the bass booster really adds some nice crunchy tones.
This pedal can be used from country leads, to 60s/70s rocky rythms to modern heavy tones.

As always, MXR has placed this tones in a really strong, vintage looking housing.

This is probably my new favorite overdrive pedal. MXR, you've done it again!

Great overdrive pedal!

12.11.2016
Hello!

I always wanted this pedal, and I use it in conjuction with my MXR '78 Badass Distortion, when I want tons of gain or sustain, or with MXR Carbon Copy delay for soloing.

This is my 10th MXR pedal, and it's awesome like all my MXRs. Thanks to its small size it's great for padalboards. It's built like a tank and I believe that it will last for maaaaaaany years! The jack placement is ideal. The quality of the knobs and of the switch is great.

It has four adjustment knobs for tone, output, gain and the level of 100Hz signal. It has also a "Bump" switch which boosts mids ad lows. That means a plethora of tones while it still remains an easy to use pedal.

The sound of this pedal is awesome for Hard Rock and Heavy Metal that I usually play. For higher gain, use it in front of a '78 Custom Badass Distortion, also by MXR. With the proper adjustments you'll get a killer sound with massive gain and sustain!

I strongly recomment this great pedal. The quality and the sound of MXR pedals is excellent! I hope you will find my review helpful.

Thanks!
