The M78 Custom Badass '78 Distortion from MXR is a factory-modded pedal that has amp-stack tones and old-school tube amp-like distortion. It can be used in front of a clean amp to add distorted tones, or to enhance the gain of a slightly dirty amp, or add even more intensity to a full-on overdriven amp.

The M78 Custom Badass '78 features a classic distortion circuit that has been hot-rodded for over-the-top lead tones, and rich, saturated rhythms. It is built with three rotary control knobs (Distortion, Tone, and Output) to dial in your desired tone, and a Crunch button, which allows you to choose between two different modes of diode and LED clipping to boost the dynamic range and harmonic content of the distortion. A blue LED illuminates when the Crunch button has been engaged. A footswitch toggles the effect on and off, and a red LED indicates when the effect is on.

Additionally, the MXR Custom Badass '78 is powered by one 9V battery or a 9 VAC adapter such as the Dunlop ECB003/ECB003E, or a DC Brick power supply (sold separately).
