The widely-praised MXR Custom Badass team has added a groundbreaking new member to its ranks: the Super Badass Distortion. The Custom Badass line’s previous designs—the award-winning ’78 Distortion and Modified O.D.—are suped-up versions of classic circuits for players who want a premium, high quality take on those specific tones.
The Super Badass is a different beast entirely. With a completely new circuit design and specially-tuned Bass, Mid, and Treble controls, the Super Badass is a distortion pedal that provides unparalleled versatility to players who want a more personalized sound.
Designed by the award-winning MXR® Custom Badass™ team, the Super Badass Distortion puts decades of 100% analog distortion at your feet. With its highly responsive Distortion control, the Super Badass covers a full spectrum, from early ’70s low gain overdrive to modern “scooped” metal distortion and every shade of dirt in between. Once you’ve dialed in your desired amount of crunch, you can use the Bass, Mid, and Treble controls to finely sculpt your sound.
The Super Badass Distortion features true bypass switching and comes ready for the road with the sturdy housing and durable components that MXR is known for.
"Finally a distortion pedal right out of the box that has some balls, with clarity that I've been looking for in a dirty/crunch effect. Great warm crunch with lots of headroom!" – Bill Kelliher / Mastodon
