Great Valve Style OverdriveAfter buying several TC Electronic pedals, I recieved the Mojo Mojo Overdrive through a promotion offered by Sweetwater in conjunction with TC Electronic.
I love the Mojo Mojo Overdrive. This pedal offers a nice overdriven tone similar to a cranked tube amp. It is a responsive pedal that adjusts to how hard or soft you play, much like you would get from a tube amp. In addition, the sound and tone can be adjusted on the pedal itself allowing for many different tones.
This is a nice addition to my pedalboard. Highly recommended!

Great Pedal!I own a TC Electronic rack mount processor and use a variety of the TC Powercore plugins. I have always been impressed with the depth and richness they bring to the mix. Being a guitar player with a limited budget for pedals I had to give the TC MojoMojo a try. I have a blues
ock\jazz style and often finger pick and slap notes trying to get a subtle, yet in your face vibe. This pedal hits the bulls eye and I'm 100% happy with my purchase. It also can rock and make your amp sing with no fizzy-fuzzy overtones, but also disappear to an almost clean sound when you back off the strings. Having separate bass and treble controls lets you have complete control for whatever type of guitar you plug in. True bypass is there and it takes up a small space on my pedal board This would not be a good fit for Shred\Metal but will handle anything else with TC quality and great tone.

love this pedal!!!I just got the MojoMojo from Sweetwater by a recommendation from the staff and I have not been disappointed! I play a Fender Tele Deluxe with two humbuckers through a Vox AC 15 w/ a blue speaker. The amp already has an amazing overdriven tone and I was concerned about coloring the already great sounding tone, just using a compressor to push the amp into overdrive. But with the MojoMojo I retain the low end warmth without all the fuzz on top and it really complements the source with a clear, tube sounding overdrive. It just plays beautifully and is wonderfully compact. It's also true-bypass, eliminating any line noise. I've played through modded Tube Screamers and Blues Drivers and a few boutique pedals but this one stands out!

Keyboard ApplicationI play a Nord Electro 2. Having a mobile clonewheel organ is awesome! However, compared to a real hammond, it was a little thin and not gritty enough for what I wanted. The stock overdrive built in is ok, but wanted a little more grit in the line to create a more realistic and unique sound.
This little brown box brought the heat!
I had heard a lot of audio clips online and I really appreciated how it didn't take way from the low end when it was switched on.
With the tone controls dialed in, I am able to recreate the organ sound I want with out taking out the mid range. You can hear the compression that this little baby simulates too.
***This thing is a great investment and keyboardists looking for something special to add to their rig should really check out this pedal!

A real nice overdrive pedalI bought this and a Corona chorus and a Flashback x4. The combination offers a a very sweet ability to develop a number of luscious tones that fit in well with my style of blues and rock. TC is supposed to mail me my free Spark Booster as part of a promotion. The Mojomojo can go from subtle distortion to not so subtle, but TC suggests getting other pedals if you are looking for heavy fuzz distortion. There is a bit of noise from the Mojomojo that I believe is fairly common with all overdrive pedals and anything else that offers gain. It does not go away when I use the battery, hence I am not convinced I need to buy an expensive power supply over my One Spot. I am still using my Boss ME 70 and I pug the guitar (Tele, Strat or ES 137) into the Mojomojo then the Corona, and then the Flashback and then into the Boss. It works well and I can still use the Wah and other effects in the ME 70. I have to admit that pedals are addictive but they do give me some very cool sounds.

Can't Go Wrong with TC ElectronicMy position has always been "If you need a distortion pedel, then you probably bought the wrong amp...". Needless to say, this is the only overdrive in my collection.
I bought it because a buddy recently let me borrow his 1968 Fender Super Reverb for a classic rock gig. The Super has tone to die for, but no gain structure. The MojoMojo perfectly complimented the natural tones of the Super and let me push it anywhere from "slight breakup" to full-on Crazy Horse saturation. Afterwards, I received several compliments on my tone.
This is the fourth TC Electronic pedal (Flashback, Hall of Fame, Polytune) in my collection and I'm very happy with them all.
