Effects PedalThe MXR Distortion + was in the 70's one of the first good sounding distortion pedals (the name distortion is actually misleading, it is more like one of the first overdrives). The MXR 78 Custom Badass Distortion combines good old tradition with new, sensible features. For example, a tone control for tonal flexibility and a crunch switch provide the possibility to choose between two different distortion characteristics. The Badass always sounds rude and musical!

  • Analog distortion pedal for electric guitar
  • Controls for output, tone and distortion
  • Selector switch for crunch mode
  • 2 Status LED
  • Robust metal housing
  • Operation with 9V battery or Dunlop ECB-003 AC adapter (optional)
  • Made in the USA

I find this to be an excellent pedal. With controls set at 12 o'clock, I get just a classic rock sound, powerful, warm yet with a treble end - as I like it. I play a Fender Am Tele through a Bugera valve amp.
The construction looks solid, yet it is lightweight and small. Controls are fine. One minor detail, the foot switch could be smoother: it requires some force to engage and produces an audible click.

Great!
