MXR M78 Custom Badass 78 Distortion Pedal
This pedal features a hot-rodded classic circuit that roars with huge amp stack tones and old school distortion with a Crunch switch to boost harmonic content. This pedal can be powered by a 9-volt battery, a Dunlop ECB003 9-volt adapter, or the DC Brick™, Iso-Brick™, and Mini Iso-Brick™ power supplies (not included).
THE LONG STORY
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.
We took 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, dialling 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.
