The Distortion + pedal from MXR loads magical classic distortion tones into a roadworthy, pedalboard-friendly enclosure. It bridges the realm between exaggerated fuzz tones and overdrive, making it a fundamental component of your tonal toolkit. With the Distortion +, it is amazingly convenient to find your ideal tones. Just roll the Distortion control to achieve your desired amount of crunch, and utilize the Output knob to dial in your preferred volume level. The Distortion + lets you add a delightful character to your amp tones.

Details: Controls can be set at minimum to produce low-volume controllable distortion or increased a bit to achieve a warm tube overdrive sound. Set to maximum, its pronounced fuzz-tone combines with long sustain. The Distortion plus may be powered by batteries or an optional ECB03 AC adapter. Within the central areas of the Output and Distortion controls of the M-104 are some soft, clipped distortions that sound truly authentic, especially with a splash of reverb. Pushing the Distortion level up high produces some classic fuzz tones that are finding their way onto an increasing number of albums, in line with the current retro fascination. This distortion is an enjoyable alternative from LA saturation and thick, British crunch. The distortion can be tamed by using it with a warm crunch/overdrive sound as a base for some hip Hendrix sounds, and also to emulate Randy Rhoads’ favorite deployment of his Distortion+.
