Hot-rodded circuit gives you big-time distortion tones, from a road-friendly box

MXR knows their pedals. They also know how to get the absolute most out of the insides of those pedals. They took a classic distortion circuit, hot-rodded it, and housed it in a rock-solid metal housing. The result? You can stomp on a Custom Badass '78 Distortion for tour after tour and it'll keep on pumping out massive distortion tones.

Get rich, massive rhythm tones and over-the-top leads

The Custom Badass '78 Distortion delivers everything from auditorium-rocking stack tones to totally classic pedal sounds. It's perfect for both chunky rhythm work and show-stopping lead parts. Best of all, MXR made it very easy to coax a range of distortion tones out of the Custom Badass '78 Distortion using just three simple knobs: tone, distortion, and output. Crank the distortion and cut through any mix. Turn that output knob to the right and hit your amp's input hard. This pedal's not afraid to bring the rock.

CRUNCH button boosts the harmonic content

MXR lets you take the Custom Badass '78 Distortion's crunch factor up even another notch, with the CRUNCH button. Hit this button and the distortion's harmonic content is increased - and you get even thicker, richer distortion tones. You won't believe how huge your guitar sounds when you plug it into this stompbox!

      What MXR Says...

      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, dialing 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.
