Awesome Overdrive

Just bought this pedal and was blown away by it's sound. It made me get my sound that I've been wanting back again. Love the way it gives the smooth distortion/overdrive without being to muddy. I've also got my harmonic squeals back again too. Thanks MXR.

Criminally Underated Overdrive

When I got this pedal I thought that it would simply do what the tube screamer does, but I was completely wrong. It is both a better booster pedal and a pedal stand-alone drive pedal than most Overdrives in this price range. I found it really easy to get a variety of great gain sounds, and it boosted my amp well without coloring it in a bad way. If you're looking for a overdrive pedal that can do both, this is the one for you.

Astounding and overlooked

Totally cleans up mud, and boosts my Mk V with a good, clean signal. It doesn't add a ton of hiss as long as you don't abuse the level/output knob. Inside, there's a switch pn the PCB that allows you to change modes between it, and the Zakk Wylde OD. Just an amazingly flexible, and well made tool. I can't believe this thing hasn't been discovered yet. I have many ODs from Maxon and Ibanez, but I've actually purchased two more of these because I can't do without it if it dies.


Awesome pedal, better sounding than most boutique pedals. I highly recommend it. I run it through a Fender Supersonic 60 with some grit ( both gains at 12 o'clock ) EQ however I like at the time then run this pedal with the output and tone controls at 12 o'clock and the gain at 3 o'clock and I get a very punchy heavy tone that cuts right through the mix. Perfect!

Simple to operate and still the best of MXR drives.

I've had many an opportunity to demo this pedal. I like my gain high, but just on the verge of over clipping. If you go too hi gain on a gains amplifier that distortion can start to distort itself, which can kill note definition and create unwanted noise. You can have all the gain you want, but if it kills your dynamics and the character of your playing style it ain't worth it. That's where this green beauty comes in. It is completely transparent will adapt to any playing style. I like the gainy sounds of hair metal the most, it was not as gainy but retained character and dynamics at higher distortion levels. My personal tone taste is (as of late) a Hughes and Kettner Grand Meister 36 (which is worth well more than $1.2k) with the bass dialed at three o clock, the mid and treble at max and the distortion at high noon on the lead. I turn this green pedal on (I usually dig the output and tone maxed and the gain only at about nine o clock) and my guitar turns into a buzz saw of harmonics but without over distorting the amp beyond my taste. It adds muscle and harmonics to your tone that bring out the characteristics of your playing without coloring your tone, and that is why this is still (from my perspective) the best overdrive pedal MXR offers.
