Built like a tank that has Killer sound!

i've always been interested in trying to get Randy Rhoads sound, and this was a major improvement going for a Zw-44 overdrive to this, but i use both in my pedalboard and still get a great sound! the footswitch is durable to an extent, i'm thinking about modding the switch to somthing a little more durable such as the berserker switch on the ZW-44. but otherwise its an amazing pedal!

Excellent Distortion

I found this pedal to be very durable and high quality. In my opinion this unit adds just enough distortion to make your tone sweeter without being too fuzzy with variation. If you want fuzzy you will probably want something else. It really just adds to your tone. I was very pleased with this distortion pedal.

Best pedal ever

I have a MXR distorion + my dad used in a grunge in the 90's. He bought it used in 1985 so I knew it was old but recently I did so reserch and they only sold the model of distortion + I have in 1981. I was blown away at how long it had lasted. My pedal had lasted more than 30 years. MXR makes quality pedals that will last lifetime the distorion + has great tone great look and a over all great sound. If your looking for a cheap distortion pedal the distortion pedal is the way to go.

For the money and most forms of music, this is the distortion pedal to get. Most cheap pedals sound cheap on nice amps. This one holds up. Are there better high end models for professional tone tweakers? Sure, but this works for most. Check it out.

MXR Distortion +

I think this pedal remains a good basic distortion pedal for rock players. In the end, paint jobs and endorsements aren't very important as its all about tone.
