MC402 Boost/Overdrive Info
The MC402 Boost/Overdrive offers the combination of a simple dynamic overdrive and an independent clean boost circuitall in one compact pedal. The overdrive section is truly "classic", adding warmth, sustain and punch, without coloring your sound. It can go from a bluesy, slightly overdriven sound to full-metal crunch with a twist of the gain knob. The MC402 also cleans up nicely when you roll back your guitar volume, making it extremely touch sensitive and responsive to picking dynamics, without becoming thin sounding. The boost circuit alone is a bonus, as it is the exact same circuit CAE has used for years to solve a wide variety of signal conditioning problems in major guitar systems. The MC402's high quality components provide quiet operation and trouble-free interaction with other pedals on your board. In keeping with the CAE tradition, the design is simple and straight forward, with a minimum of controlsonly what is necessary to do the job.

Power: Dunlop ECB003 AC Adapter or Single 9-volt battery

From classic rock and blues to modern metal, this pedal can produce a good sound for pretty much any genre. This pedal may be able to produce excellent tones, however, if you want to make humour for guitarists, you can also make it sound horrible if you want. An amazing pedal. I'd recommend getting it.

This pedal really rocks, I use it to drive my tube amp to add more color and a certain texture to it and it sounds phenomenal I don't really like the overdrive section of it as a stand alone but its great for driving tube amps. The boost section...well its a boost section 20 db of clean boost is just awesome for solos.
