I've owned a lot of pedals over the years... too many that did the same thing.... i keep trying new builds hoping to find the "one", rarely getting impressed beyond a mild " that's kinda cool" After an hour of getting nothing but useable sounds with the Super Badass, i realized one thing was clear. I need to buy a few more for spares... just in case... good job MXR! Blown away....

When I first ran my Epi Les Paul through the Super Badass into the dirty channel of my 90's solid state Princeton Chorus I was disappointed to say the least. Even with the amp's gain all the way off, the pedal was muddy and flacid. I briefly thought of returning it, until I figured I'd run it through the amp's clean channel. Wow, what a difference! I'm not sure about the claims for modern metal sounds (not my deal anyway), but it certainly does everything else..... And does it amazingly well. The sound is very tunable, and gives tube-like organic warmth through my solid-state amp. Like a good tube amp, the Super Badass gives decent pick responsiveness, especially with the guitar volume rolled back. Pick softly, and there's a clean overdrive sound.... Play more aggressively at the same volume, and the SBA barks it out! Love the versatility! Only peev is the power jack located on the right side, far too close to the input jack for me.

Probably the best distortion I've ever heard. Especially for the money! Been on the chase to add a second drive/distortion pedal on my board for a year, and I believe that I may have found it. It's on the board with a TS9 playing a strat through a deluxe reverb. All tube. Tried an OCD, RAT as well going with the 2 TS9 set-up....The MXR Superbadass allows for loads of a volume push, but the tone is buttery smooth. I couldn't contain a tinny almost digital sound off of the OCD and RAT. the 2xTS9 was close, but the MXR Superbadass distortion is fantastic. If you're trying the OCD - Test this baby. Very Nice....Read all the reviews out there. It was a big help

I'm "super" impressed by this "badass" pedal!!! Very good gain on tap to get the meat and potatoes of your sound. I nail Van Halen tones with ease, thanks to the musical way this pedal works with your fingers and guitar. Cleans up when you roll off the volume, and growls when you turn it up. The eq section is very dynamic and has a wide range of options. The best distortion pedal I've ever used!!! Going to buy another one as a backup..., just in case.

This thing emulates marshall or even heavier metal tones perfectly. I play it through a vox ac15 and on my friends solid state but it sounds amazing on any amp based on the fact that you get can get 100% of your tone through the pedal and almost no original sound of the amp. So with that, basically no matter what it will sound good. The output knob on this pedal is insane. It is like injecting thunder and lightning into your tube amp. This pedal has more volume potential than any other. I usually run the eq at 12 oclock, output at 9 oclock and distortion at 12 oclock. With this setting i can play anything just based on how i pick because the pedal reacts so well. - Bottom line - Nothing is better than carrying my usa strat with single coils and this pedal anywhere and being able to play anything through any amp.

This pedal mixed with a tube amp of any kind (or any amp for that matter really) can pretty much produce any rock tone you are looking for. I couldn't believe my ears for the price. All sounds are crisp and up front. Goes from classic to modern sounds. Fat overdrive. Singing sustain. Rich harmonics. Hard to find bad sounds on it.

Over the years I have owned over 10 different distortion pedals and none of them even come remotely close to how awesome and versatile this pedal is! I owned the '78 distortion and loved it! But this is that pedal and more. With more control and more room to mould your crunch, overdrive, distortion what ever you want! Buy this pedal you will not be disappointed

This is by far the best distortion pedal I've used. The 3 band eq is where it's at to shape and sculpt the distortion to your liking. The distortion itself sounds very smooth and when cranked does not sound "tinny and thin" I've since retired the MXR '78 distortion as this pedal does that and more. With the gain rolled back it yeilds some sweet and chiming overdriven tones. All in all, there are so many sounds/tones that can come out of this box so it is very versatile. Excellent job from the MXR custom shop team.
