MXR M115 Distortion III-Classic Rock players will Love this pedal

Declan C., 22.07.2013
This little gem delivers everything from crunchy overdrive to smooth distortion.
easy to use and the accompanying guide is actually an excellent starting point to sounds with this pedal. Easy to use and fast to acquire sounds even if just twiddling the knobs randomly.

Overall a classic rock lovers pedal
The only downside I would give is that when its on,a distinctive drop in the low mids can be heard,but thats down to style and preference

Completely different

Patrick W. 456, 31.01.2013
The MXR Distortion III is for those looking for an extremely creamy and creamy lead sound. The operation is child-friendly, without much frills and adjustment possibilities. There is a Tone control, which is above all a bit more altitudes and centers, the more you turn it up. Furthermore, there is the drive controller to control the proportion of the distortion, and the controller for the output. As with any MXR-pedal, the processing is absolutely great.

The sound is very special, and in my opinion it deserves cult status, which is, of course, the intention of the manufacturer. As I said, the distortion III is very creamy and American. Who likes the British sound, will not be really happy here. I play the pedal before nem self-made clean amp and have been looking for eternity for a sound of this kind. With the Distoirtion III I finally found it :-)

The distortion of this pedal is not just for metal lovers, but rather for soloists, who prefer an extremely warm, soft, creamy and very overtone sound. The pedal does not have so much Gain from home (one would have to test before a nem tamped amp), but for example with the Micro Amp of MXR before it in the signal path can one again ne whole portion with draufpacken. This makes the sound a lot more fat and with a lot more gain. So then also legato runs ala Satriani insane horny and especially always very transparent. Furthermore, the padal very much rides on the volume poti of the guitar and you get only by turning back the potis a nearly clean sound.

Otherwise I play Himmelstrutz pedals. And even in connection with these, the Distortion III works perfectly. So I have many different sound variants available.

This pedal is what the price / performance ratio concerns in my opinion absolutely unbeatable. But you have to be on the American sound, in the category I have not yet a better rumble pedal.

Absolutely the best!
