Check out Guitar World’s review of the MXR Custom Badass ’78 Distortion.

This pedal will complement the sound of any amp with its responsive, natural dynamics while still offering the versatility and low-noise performance that today’s players demand.

“I believe this pedal will become legendary.”–Paul Riario, Guitar World Magazine


The first in a line from the MXR Custom Badass design team, the MXR Custom Badass ’78 Distortion is a factory-modded pedal that roars with huge amp stack tones and old school tube amp-like distortion. The ’78 Distortion’s wide open amp-like tone sounds great whether it’s in front of a clean amp, a slightly dirty amp, or a full on overdriven amp. Under the hood, this high performance machine features top notch circuitry and hardware meant for a lifetime of use.
