Joe Bochar MxD is the most complete and comprehensive Overdrive pedal we have ever played! This pedal is incredibly well designed and executed and covers the range from early JTM45 to JCM800 to modded JCM800, for modern and heavier styles. The MxD does all of this, while being truly dynamic and maintaining the character of your guitar and amp. Playing the MxD, feels like you're plugged into an amp, not a pedal. Besides the normal Level, Drive and Tone controls, the MxD adds SAT, MAX, SHIFT, and CLIP controls. SAT
determines how saturated your signal will be. Like turning up a tube amp, SAT adds levels of thickness, gain, and sustain. SAT works independently of the DRIVE control, to give you the ultimate in tonal flexibility. Higher levels of SAT and lower levels of DRIVE deliver "pushed" Vintage amp tones; lower levels of SAT and Higher levels of DRIVE let you crank out great Classic Rock tones. Raising both the SAT and Drive controls will put you in Metal heaven! MAX
, when selected, sets the DRIVE and SAT controls to their maximum value (regardless of their knob settings); this is ideal for a Solo/Gain boost. The MAX feature can also be set to only affect the DRIVE control. SHIFT
, in the Modern position, is perfect for adding that tight low end bass boost. Select the Classic position, for a non-boosted bass response. CLIP
gives you even more tone options. This feature allows you to switch in Diode Clipping, for even more levels of Overdrive. With CLIP turned off, the MxD sounds a little less compressed and more open.
Each MxD pedal is hand wired/assembled in the USA, using the highest quality parts and is built for Real-World use. The MxD comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty. The MxD features True Bypass switching.
