Nothing beats the sound of tubes — it’s what real-deal distortion is made of. That’s why the Fender MTG:LA Tube Distortion comes loaded with a genuine, US-made NOS 6205 preamp tube. And once the tube starts cooking, you can shape your tone to perfection with Tone, Bass, Treble, and Tight controls. The MTG:LA differs from the MTG Tube Distortion with the inclusion of the Tone control, which lets you tame the highs. With the Treble and Bass controls at 12 o'clock, you can tap into the MTG:LA’s naturally punchier sound, and adding in the Tone control dials in an even fatter sound. Want more? How about a Boost footswitch? This function is great for giving solos an extra kick to make them stand out. The MTG:LA Tube Distortion features a one-of-a-kind sound based on an all-original Fender circuit. Guitarists looking for an ultra-flexible, tube-driven distortion owe it to themselves to check it out.
Beyond its wide-ranging distortion, the Fender MTG:LA Tube Distortion pedal is tailored for live performers. LED-backlit knobs show you your settings at a glance, even on a dark stage. With all this packed into a rugged anodized aluminum enclosure, Music Experience can confirm that this pedal will stand up to regular use and abuse.

The heart of the MTG:LA is a genuine vacuum tube, in this case a NOS (New Old Stock) 6205 preamp tube.
The secondary footswitch can be configured to add extra volume or gain, giving your sound a kick in the ass when you need it.
Not only does the EQ section sport Tone, Bass and Treble controls, it also has a Tight control so you can contour the low end to taste.
The Boost has its own Level and Gain controls—Level controls the master output level when the Boost circuit is engaged, while the Gain control affects how much gain is introduced.
The MTG:LA uses a typical 9V center-negative power supply, making it easy to integrate into any rig. Internally, a switch-mode power supply converts the incoming 9 volts to 55 volts and applies that higher voltage to the tube’s plate—just like an amplifier.
Every Fender effects pedal is crafted from lightweight, durable anodized aluminum and includes switchable LED-illuminated controls.
