Une pédale pour le stoner et le hard rock

AlexandreM, 21.06.2011
Custom Audio Electronic, c'est la marque de Bob Bradshaw créé grâce au succès de deux petites merveilles d'electronique made in California. Il y a d'abord le système RSP18 aujourd'hui décliné à travers tout une gamme de switcher-loopers, et son fameux préampli à lampes 3 canaux en rack 19''2U : le CAE 3+ qu'utilisent Steve Lukather et Steve Vai.

Soyons bien clair: il n'est pas possible de comparer cette MC-402 à ce préampli légendaire facturé aux alentours de 3000 euros. Le logo CAE est donc une bonne idée du marketing de chez MXR pour habiller joliment ce boitier en métal peint de manière à simuler de l'alu brossé noir. Mais la comparaison s'arrête là.
Il s'agit donc d'une bonne pédale d'overdrive mais pas d'une machine fabriquée artisanalement pour attendre des sommets de qualité.

Cette MXR sera parfaite pour ceux qui veulent salir le son d'un ampli à lampes et/ou obtenir un gain de volume au moment de passer en solo grâce à la redoutable fonction boost, réglable à souhait. Elle se destine donc aux rockers et non aux shredders.

Sur un JCM800 et avec une LesPaul Standard, je l'utilise pour un son très rond dans le style stoner metal. Les fans de Monster Magnet, Kyuss et autres Queen Of The Stone Age devraient donc l'apprécier.
Le guitariste qui accompagne Duff MacKagan dans son groupe Loaded l'utilise actuellement en tournée (printemps-été 2011) avec un Carbon Copy MXR. On peut donc aussi l'utiliser dans un registre hard rock.

Cette MXR MC-402 ne souffle pas, la qualité de fabrication est bonne (assemblage et qualité des matériaux) pour un prix correct. C'est donc une très bonne pédale pour salir le son.

Mais pour ceux qui cherchent le high-gain précis, la mention Custom Audio Electronic peut s'avérer trompeuse. Il leur faudra débourser beaucoup plus dans un véritable système Bradshaw.

Esta pequeña caja del demonio es una autentica gozada.

La compré para hacer compañía a un Big Muff y un Whammy y darle así aun mas fuerza a mi guitarra, no quede decepcionado. Puede utilizarse como pedal único o en compañía de otros distorsionadores, eso si, la guitarra se te va a acoplar cada vez que pases mas de dos segundos sin pulsar una nueva nota :D

Su construcción salta a la vista por su calidad, robustez y simplicidad. Puedes darle mala vida y seguirá sin caerse a cachos como otros.

Sus funciones Boost y Overdrive son de calidad por separado y crean un sonido demoledor cuando las unes.

Si buscas un pedal para darle mas fuerza e impacto a tu guitarra, o conseguir ese ultimo empujón a una guitarra ya distorsionada, este aparato conseguirá maravillas.
