Dunlop Releases MXR Super Badass Distortion

MXR has released the Super Badass Distortion, a 100% analog pedal with a completely new circuit.


Benicia, CA (June 18, 2013) -- Designed by the award-winning MXR Custom Badass team, the Super Badass Distortion puts decades of 100% analog distortion at your feet.

With a completely new circuit design and specially-tuned EQ section, the Super Badass delivers unparalleled versatility for players who want a more personalized distortion sound. Its highly responsive Distortion control covers a full spectrum, from early ’70s low gain overdrive to modern high gain saturation and every shade of dirt in between. Once you’ve dialed in your desired crunch level, you can use the Bass, Mid, and Treble controls to finely sculpt your sound.

The Super Badass Distortion features true bypass switching and comes ready for the road with the sturdy housing and durable components that MXR is known for.
