NEW - MXR Super Badass Distortion custom thru Gibson Traditional Les Paul and Fender Eric Johnson - Two Rock and Carr Impala
Jim Dunlop has just released a new pedal that sounds mighty nice and has a lot of zombie killing range. In one of the videos below they have couple the pedal to the Carr Impala amp to get a wide range of pedal distortion. The Amp is set to a low volume clean setting and the pedal is run up, down and sideways to mutate the signal from ear love to impending doom. You can hear the classic 80's crunch, scooped out mids, or heavy sustain distortion. Supposedly this pedal is to be the jack of all trades, mulit-trick pony, and as cliche' as it may sound, MXR just may have pulled one out of their hat. The box is a sturdy unit that won't take up too much room on your pedal board and will run on AC/DC. The output is super responsive to the tiniest of tweaks. The unit is very dynamic and allows you to turn down your guitar volume and get slightly distorted bluesy grit and grime while allowing you to spin your guitar volume and feel the burn with it's touch sensitive electronics. Turn down the mids and up the distortion and hello evil vampire runs...... Wha Hooo! This pedal is just in time for summer and once you get it the neighbors are going to reach for the phone to call up the technology police because this thing is going to burn up the electrons and maybe cause a local sonic power outage. It's your turn to burn, check this pedal out and bring a fire extinguisher and some ice. Flame on brothers and sisters!
