A surprising twist on distortion

By Chance

from Helena MT

Comments about MXR M-104 DISTORTION + Guitar Pedal:

At first I got this pedal and thought it sounded like crap. Luckily I soon realized that it was a poor quality battery which was immediately replaced. It sounds really good however boosts the highs too much. I have a strat and a Les Paul and the Les Paul sounds better. The strat is a little higher pitched but still sounds great. If you have used amp distortions this is a savior. It is much more active, the single notes sound much fuller. Its definitely no drone and made to withstand many years of torture. I would definitely recommend buying this if you want an alternative to the hum drum distortion.

Amazing

By Alex103188

from Beaverton, Or USA

Comments about MXR M-104 DISTORTION + Guitar Pedal:

When I first got this pedal last year, it took me a little while to develop the idea to mix both distortions and use the MXR + as a part of my rig. I crank the amp distortion, and crank the pedal. Not only does it shape my tone to an amazing degree, but it also tightens up the sound that is helpful for fast playing. Now my rig picks up even more notes and my playing has progressed an alarming rate. I HIGHLY recommend this pedal if you want distortion for ANYTHING.

MXR D+ is awesome

By fabledgarret

from Baltimore, MD

Comments about MXR M-104 DISTORTION + Guitar Pedal:

I just bought a re-issue MXR Distortion + and it rocks. I get to keep the overall characteristics of my guitar and rig, but still get a biting distortion that doesn't get muddy or sloppy. The test of a great distortion is one that lets you still hear the individual notes when you reign out chords, and this baby does the trick. I needed a real biting distortion for the more rocking tunes I play in my band. I have a Route 66 that gives me a real warm/bluesy overdrive, but I needed something with a bit more bite. The MXR D+ was perfect, and by using it along with the compressor side of my Route 66, I get a killer lead tone!

let your character shine

By aidan knight

from canada

Comments about MXR M-104 DISTORTION + Guitar Pedal:

I've owned a ridiculous amount of gain boxes, and the distortion+ has me coming back every time. I have an original 78 block logo, but have tried the new reissues. They sound fantastic, with slightly less output, but still retaining that great tone. The magic of the D+ is that it allows your guitar to sit in it's own tonal pocket, not altering it to sound like something it doesn't want to sound like. AND it sounds great no matter where you put the distortion knob. I love that. The construction is great, the layout is dead simple and the tone is_classic_.

A distinctive sounding distortion.

By Alan McCartney

from Northern Ireland

Comments about MXR M-104 DISTORTION + Guitar Pedal:

I fell in love with the sound of this pedal as soon as I plugged it in and played through it.It has a really tight and dry crunchy sound to it and gives your guitar a highly sensitive responsewith a tightly squeezed tone. Simple to achieve an excellent distortion sound with two controls only for output and distortion levels I highly recommend this effect!

good distortion

By dru

from Houston

Comments about MXR M-104 DISTORTION + Guitar Pedal:

i just got this pedal. its pretty nifty. I use a fender telecaster and a roland jazz chorus. With the distortion cranked and the middle position it has a rough rock sound. I picked this one over the others because it still keeps the tone characteristics of my tele, unlike the boss and digitech, which makes my guitar sound different.

Classic metal distortion.

By Rob-747-D

from Redondo Beach CA USA

Comments about MXR M-104 DISTORTION + Guitar Pedal:

Awesome for practice amps and Marshall's one of Randy Rhoades' favorites! It is awesome! I have used this one for over 26 years! I really recommend it! FIVE STARS!! A good deal too. The MXR is very good, still the same but with only a light in the middle. It ROCKS! One of the best choices. About 52 other people I know very well think so also. I think this is an awesome deal and the MXR is AWESOME too. It's the return of the classic. It's the ultimate distortion box almost ever made!
