MXR MC-401

Custom Audio Electronics BoosterLA's Sound guru Bob Bradshaw, who developed the Custom Audio pedals, has married MXR and so its quality treasures now run under this Name. The MC-401 Custom Audio Electronics Booster is the right solution for guitarists whose amp actually already has an optimal sound but could just use a bit more gain. Overdrives and treble booster would bend the frequency response, which is not always a desirable effect. The MXR has been getting it right for years - without distorting the sound it gives the amp just the kick that it was missing; ideal for bringing out old Marshalls, Fenders and Voxes, creating a strong lead sound without bending their beloved signature sound. Adjustable from 0 to 20 d.

  • Adjustable from 0 to 20db boost
  • Stable housing
  • 1 Input and 1 output
  • Status LED (optional Dunlop ECB-003 AC power supply)

Amazingly clean booster + handy buffer all in one pedal

Cicco, 18.10.2018
I bought the MC-401 for my Bass pedal board, as I usually play clean bass sound and sometime add some colours i needed a very clean booster but... I was also looking for a buffer .. this pedal gave me all that i was looking in a sturdy well made pedal case. I run this pedal at the very end of my pedal board chain.... The sound in the output is very clean, when in true bypass its own buffer is very handy with long cable run (you can hear the difference bypassing this pedal).

The only two things I would change in this pedal (but only for personal feel) is the foot-switch which is kind of too hard and you have to step on on it fully to turn on the unit.. some people like to go hard on top and the light is too bright for my eyes (I`ve placed a white tape on top so I can still see the operation light)

Overall this booster is the cleanest I ever owned and I can enhance my runs or solos without any lost or change in my original Bass sound

Top Quality Kit

Tom2879, 22.02.2019
The MXR Line booster is a top quality pedal for guitarists who need a lift during a solo but you don't have a sound engineer to do that for you. It's real simple to use, just put it last in your amp effects loop, switch it on and boom, there's boost to lift your solo to the front of the mix.

Top quality. I have this in my board for the last six years.
