Jim Dunlop Announces the MXR Custom Badass Modified Overdrive
The Modified Overdrive is a classic overdrive circuit with modern modifications for improved performance and versatility.
Benecia, CA (November 23, 2011) -- Last year, Dunlop unveiled the MXR Custom Badass line of classic circuits fine-tuned to deliver a wider tonal spectrum, more versatility and increased dynamic range, beginning with the '78 Distortion. This year, the Custom Badass team has announced the latest addition to the MXR Custom Badass line, the Modified Overdrive—a classic overdrive circuit with modern modifications for improved performance and versatility.
Dunlop added a 100HZ cut and boost control that allows for a more focused EQ when cut, or a beefier tone when boosted. The Bump switch engages an alternate EQ voicing that boosts the lows and mids. Dunlop recommends putting it in front of the '78 Custom Badass Distortion for a slew of amp-like gain structures that won't mask your tone.
