Great array of tones, from light overdrive to extreme high gain metal sounds
I used it with my little "toy" practice amp Orange Micro Crush and, when the pedal was on, I could play anything with it. I think that this speaks volumes about the quality of the effect and the amounts of gain that this pedal is able to produce. When playing through better amps, I engage it when using TC Quintessence harmonizer, as harmonizer shoul go into clean amp and after dirt (distortion pedal). Look no further - it is the ultimate distortion pedal.
Great for classic rock
I like this pedal mainly because it sounds good and it says "badass". Well mainly the first reason. It is a great sounding pedal if you are looking to play classic rock such as KISS, I usually play KISS songs with it and it has that tone to me pretty well. A way it doesn't like it Metal. To me it doesn't seem to take a huge amount of distortion if your trying to go for hard and heavy distortion. I have a Metal Zone for that and honestly I like the Metal Zone better. Either way this is a useful pedal if your going for a nice Classic Rock sound.
Best distortion pedal I've ever used
Got this to beef up single coil guitars through my Marshall and was blown away. Gain and volume at about 11 o'clock give a fantastic tight over driven sound and the eq isn't just for show as it really allows you to tweak the sound you want. Highly recommended and great value pedal.
I absolutely love the range this pedal has. I can use it for a lower gain overdrive, classic rock distortion, nasty medal pedal. Stacked with an overdrive it can even fuzz a little. The tone controls are very responsive and can make magic happen. The clipping style is one of my favorites for distortion. I highly recommend this pedal.
MXR SUPER BADASS DISTORTION
"Just like what I said, I like dirty sounds that has a 3 band EQ on it. I am more of a tweaker. I like to tweak and to shape my sound according on what I want. This is really badass! This is really producing a heavy and massive sound. The unique thing about this pedal, it is very versatile. I am not the type of guy relying on the amp's distortion. As much as possible I want my original sound that's why I prefer using the clean side of my amp because you can easily notice your tone."
That was actually the distortion pedal I was looking for, Well, I've tried few disto pedals, more expensive and so, But this little affordable one is giving me exactly the sound I want, I'm playing a strat with SC, it gives enough power as I wish I have, That's my fav one,
