What Ryan says about the MXR Custom Badass ’78 Distortion:

A great spiky distortion that does everything from low gain growl to full-bodied roar. I’ve used this pedal live and in the studio and it remains a mainstay on my pedal board.

What MXR says:

This pedal features a hot-rodded classic circuit that roars with huge amp stack tones and old school distortion with a Crunch switch to boost harmonic content.

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, dialling 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.
