The MXR Custom Badass ’78 Distortion roars with huge amp stack tones and old school distortion. We took a classic distortion circuit and hot-rodded it to deliver over-the-top soaring leads and rich, saturated rhythms. With only three knobs, dialing in a badass tone is a cinch. Engage the CRUNCH button to boost the harmonic content of the distortion. Under the hood, this high performance machine features top notch circuitry and hardware meant for a lifetime of use.

What a great little pedal, firstly, it looks stunning, the hot rod red and classy cream writing really helps this stick out on your pedal board and it's built like a tank! Initially I didn't get on with the pedal using extreme EQ settings on my amp but found it best to get a good clean tone then use this pedal like an amp itself. Push the Output and back off the Distortion for great Fender type punch and clarity and push that Distortion for vintage Marshall like tones. It's extremely useful if you're going out playing on other peoples amplifiers, use this to get your tone! Overall a great pedal on many levels. Definite purchase for anybody looking for great vintage/modern rock sounds.
