The MXR Custom Badass ’78 Distortion is a factory-modded pedal that roars with huge amp stack tones and oldschool tube amp-like distortion.
We took a classic distortion circuit and hot-rodded it to the following level for over-the-best soaring leads and wealthy, saturated rhythms. With handiest three knobs, dialing in Badass tone is a cinch. The CRUNCH button allows you to choose from 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 is in front of a clean amp, a relatively dirty amp, or a full on overdriven amp. Under the hood, this high performance machine features best notch circuitry and hardware meant for an entire life of use.
