Great overdrive, not distortion


from Morgantown, WV

Comments about MXR M-115 Distortion III Pedal:

This pedal does an amazing job at boosting your signal and adding a bit of a crunch to your guitar. I bought it with that in mind, I first tested it at a store to see if I'd like it as my main distortion but found out it wasn't too great. I then tried it out as an overdrive and realized there was no other overdrive I liked more than that one. So I bought it and I could never replace it. Great overdrive, but they missed the mark with trying to make it a distortion so I give it 4 stars.

Comments about MXR M-115 Distortion III Pedal:

They should call it Overdrive Pedal. It is a good overdrive. Slightly more than one of the Green Pedals and clones but not quite distortion. It is true by-pass and does not alter or color the amp tone. I AB'd it to test. The biggest negative is the screws removal needed to change batteries. To boost an amp without changeing tone it does a good job. All my tests were on tube amps. No comment on Solid States
