M104

Germanium-powered, soft-clipped distortion.
Classic 70s distortion.
The tone that made Randy Rhoads famous.

This little yellow box is responsible for those great distortion sounds heard on so many classic recordings. Set the Distortion control low and crank the Output knob to drive the front end of your amp for cool blues tones, or max out the Distortion knob for the tone that made Randy Rhoads famous. There still isn't any distortion unit on the market that sounds like the Distortion+.

Power: Dunlop ECB003 AC Adapter or Single 9 volt battery

I have used this pedal for over 20 years, and I like it simple. No tone to wreak havoc on your amp's tone. Remember that the next time your pedal with E.Q. is now affecting your amp too!!!!

I needed a dirt box to go from clean on my fender style amp to somewhere between crunch and vintage punk with a single foot stomp. I don't like taking my vintage pedals out of the house. I didn't have much cash at the time and saw this at a good price in my local L&M. I have always liked MXR for their tried tested and true simple format and components. I probably would have preferred to grab an amp simulator type overdrive at the time but this has turned out to be a solid purchase. The tone of this dirt box is much more palatable than most boxes I have used that are labelled 'Distortion'. I mostly the first half of the drive knob range and goose the output level a bit to hit the amp harder, I find this gives me the vintage dirt sound I want. If you do happen to like classic metal type high gain sounds that is at the top half of the drive knob range (which I rarely use). This unit is less noisy than most other Distortion boxes I have tried. I'm not sure if this is the be all and end all for me but this allows me to keep my vintage pedals at home where they are safe. This MXR unit, a Boss Tuner and a cheap EHX LPB boost keep my risk level low on the floor at the gig.

This is such a great pedal to run into a tube amp. What it lacks in features it makes up for in tone.
