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.
