Introducing the MXR Prime Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal, with 100% analogue circuitry that produces hard-hitting amp-like distortion in a compact stompbox; a perfect addition to any guitarist's tonal arsenal. Whether you're practising, laying down a recording, or wowing adoring crowds, the Prime Distortion is a force to be reckoned with.
The MXR Prime Distortion pedal produces a range of raw, powerful tones with a hefty (controllable) level of distortion. Boasting incredible response times, much like the kind you may find on a quality tube amp, and its 100% analogue circuitry, the pedal is designed with low noise op amps, allowing you to increase the gain without any unwanted noise added to your signal.
The three-knob control layout if delightfully easy to use. The Distortion knob allows you to dictate how much distortion is introduced into your signal. Tone focuses attention on a specific frequency band, emphasises that tonal range so that you can tweak you tone and take it anywhere from a thickened low-end, through fat and chunky mids, to wailing highs. The Output knob allows you to control the signal level post-effect, enabling you to create an understated introduction or a huge 'in your face' impact.
By incorporating your guitar's volume and tone controls alongside the pedal's, you have even more tones to play with. Rolling back the pickup volume and tease out a little fizzy, grittiness from the Prime Distortion. Throw up the pickup volume and let rip with a tsunami of sound. If you're a fan of classic '80s inspired metal and heavy rock, then you're going to love this awesome little unit.
Like all MXR pedals, the Prime Distortion wears a heavy-duty outer shell with road-worthy jacks and a footswitch that is designed with extreme durability in mind. With its modest footprint, you can slip it discreetly into your gig bag or case with ease. All you need is a 9-Volt battery or power supply and you're good to go!
