Dunlop Releases the MXR Tom Morello Power 50 Overdrive

Tom Morello's signature amp and speaker voice are recreated in pedal form with the release of the MXR Tom Morello Power 50 Overdrive.

Coming off the heels of the popular Cry Baby Tom Morello Wah, Dunlop and Tom Morello have once again collaborated to create the MXR Power 50 Overdrive. For more than 30 years, the key component of Tom Morello’s sonic voice has been his amp setup. The MXR Power 50 Overdrive captures the sound and functionality of that setup for use with any rig.


  • A faithful recreation of Tom Morello’s raw, hard-hitting sound in pedal form
  • Amp-like performance and huge, wicked tones thanks to MOSFET technology
  • Dial in Tom’s exact settings with exact same control interface
  • FX loop offers harmonically rich path for unique FX coloring
  • Prefect complement to the Cry Baby Tom Morello Wah

The MXR Tom Morello Power 50 Overdrive is available for pre-order now at $189.99 street/$271.41 MSRP from retailers worldwide.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
