The MXR M264 uses op-amp and FET stage circuitry to put tube amplifier tone and response at your feet. The guitar players here at Music Experience love the all-analog nature of this responsive, rich pedal. Use the drive control to dial in just the right amount of amp-like distortion - from barely there to the wait-for-it crackle of a tube amp on the edge! The Hi/Lo EQ controls give you power to define the tonal path your sound will take and you can engage the high cut if you need a little warmth. True bypass and a roadworthy metal chassis make the MXR M264 FET driver pedal the one you need.
The M264's unique, all-analog circuit design makes your pedal responsive and musical. With an op-amp gain stage that delivers your signal into a FET stage, you'll experience distortion and sustain usually native to pricey tube amplifiers. Being delicate and changing as they age, tube tone has at once always been desired and still sometimes more trouble than it's worth. This has driven the race to find an accurate digital model, but the race continues as most simply don't have the "tonal life" of the real deal. The M264 is here to answer your tube-tone-without-the-tube-amp needs!
Responsive and reactive, the M264 doesn't get lazy with your signal. Use the Output control to set your volume, dial in some crunch with the Drive, then tweak your new tone with the 2-band EQ. Got it? Now, turn up your guitar, feed the pedal a bit more signal, and let a whole new level of analog-goodness wash over your tone.

Featuring a unique circuit design, the MXR FET Driver captures the rich, creamy sound of an overdriven tube amplifier by cascading an op-amp gain stage into a FET stage. The FET Driver thickens up lead tones with musical, amp-like distortion and sustain without the fragility and inconsistency associated with tubes. The FET Driver features a simple but responsive set of controls. Set your volume level with the Output control, and then use the Drive control to dial in the grit, from subtle soft-clipping to early stage distortion. Fine tune the FET Driver's sound by tweaking Hi and Lo boost/cut controls, and push the Hi Cut switch to roll off high end frequencies when playing in high volume situations where excess noise is apparent. The FET Driver features true bypass switching and comes in a heavy duty metal housing that's ready for the road.
