Hot-rodded circuit gives you big-time distortion tones, from a road-friendly box

MXR knows their pedals. They also know how to get the absolute most out of the insides of those pedals. They took a classic distortion circuit, hot-rodded it, and housed it in a rock-solid metal housing. The result? You can stomp on a Custom Badass '78 Distortion for tour after tour and it'll keep on pumping out massive distortion tones.

Get rich, massive rhythm tones and over-the-top leads

The Custom Badass '78 Distortion delivers everything from auditorium-rocking stack tones to totally classic pedal sounds. It's perfect for both chunky rhythm work and show-stopping lead parts. Best of all, MXR made it very easy to coax a range of distortion tones out of the Custom Badass '78 Distortion using just three simple knobs: tone, distortion, and output. Crank the distortion and cut through any mix. Turn that output knob to the right and hit your amp's input hard. This pedal's not afraid to bring the rock.

CRUNCH button boosts the harmonic content

MXR lets you take the Custom Badass '78 Distortion's crunch factor up even another notch, with the CRUNCH button. Hit this button and the distortion's harmonic content is increased - and you get even thicker, richer distortion tones. You won't believe how huge your guitar sounds when you plug it into this stompbox!
