Soft Clipping Distortion Pedal

One of the first good sounding distortions ever - thanks to soft clipping, a truly harmonious, never unpleasant yet biting sound is achieved. Is very well suited to elicit from tube amps the last bit of bite (from traces of sawtooth to delightful tube overdrive). In such way did Ozzy's favourite guitarist - Randy Rhoads - run a part of his black tower.

  • A real alternative to the typical British or West Coast sounds
  • Bypass switch with operating LED
  • Controls for output and distortion
  • Powered via battery or external power supply

To be honest I first bought that one because it was similar to the one that Randy Rhoads had .But after testing it , it is just a glorious piece of metal .I play my marshall in the clean channel and with this pedal alongside my Ibanez tubescreamer and the mxr eq and reverb you would think that heavy metal is here more than ever. Can't get enough of it. No regrets.

Good distortion, with some weaknesses for synths
Bjørnar 08.11.2019
Pros: This is a very nice sounding distortion if you want that classic distorted 303 acid vibe with an analog synth. It's built like a tank, and I can imagine it will survive a lot.

Cons. The output volume is a bit on the low side for a synth, even when the input signal is high. You also need to turn down the output volume of your synth to get the right sound. Also, the output volume is way too low to loop it back into your modular with a "eurorack" 5V signal level.

Really nice unit!
Brian5879 12.04.2016
I have a script logo from 1977 to compare this new 2016 MXR Distortion + and it is spot on. It is very difficult to hear the difference between the two unit. MXR has done a stellar job with this effect. It's as good as the original! Seriously, if you ever owned one of these and remember the fantastic sound of it, you won't be disappointed.

Tout est parfait.
Par contre ils auraient pu fournir l'adaptateur secteur 9V ou une pile... J'ai dû repasser une commande car je ne savais pas.
