MXR Custom Badass '78 Distortion Effect Pedal

When I think of the MXR Custom Badass '78 Distortion, I think of Eddy Van Halen. The '78 distortion is a factory-modded pedal that immulates large tube amp stack distortion. They started with a classic distortion circuit and hot-rodded it to the next level for over-the-top soaring leads and rich, saturated rhythms. With only three knobs, dialing in Badass tone is a cinch. The CRUNCH button allows you to choose between two different modes of diode and LED clipping, boosting the harmonic content of the distortion.

The '78 Distortion's wide open amp-like sound 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.
