With the MXR M78 Custom Badass '78 Distortion, the renowned MXR presents the first stompbox in a series of Custom Badass pedals. This red guitar effect pedal delivers old-fashioned tube amplifier distortion and the grand sounds of huge amplifier towers. Inside, we find a classic, analog, and high-quality distortion circuit that MXR has personally boosted, allowing you and your guitar to effortlessly produce those screaming leads and richly distorted rhythms!

The Badass sound of the M78
You need no more than three knobs to get that Badass sound. Turn the distortion knob of the M78 Custom Badass '78 and you immediately start to hear its raw, yet open sound. Further adjust the total volume with the output knob and the brightness with the tone knob. Engage the 'crunch' to boost the overtones for an even richer sound. The rugged construction of the M78 also ensures a lifetime of rock enjoyment.
