Product Description

Controls can be set to produce low-volume, controllable distortion or increased to achieve a warm, tube overdrive sound. Set to maximum, its pronounced fuzztone combines with long sustain. Within the central areas of the Output and Distortion controls of the M104 are some soft, clipped distortions that sound truly authentic, especially with a splash of reverb.

Pushing the Distortion level up high produces some classic fuzz tones that are finding their way onto an increasing number of albums, in line with the current retro fascination. This distortion is an enjoyable alternative from L.A. saturation and thick, British crunch. The distortion can also be tamed by using it with a warm crunch/overdrive sound as a base for some hip Hendrix sounds, and also to emulate Randy Rhoads' favorite deployment of his Distortion+.

Features:

- Output and fuzz foot control knob
- LED on/off indicator
- Powered by the Dunlop ECB03 (earlier versions use ECB02) AC Adapter and/or 9 volt battery

MXR M104 Distortion+ Customer Review
Sound: The sound is real warm, unlike alot of other pedals. It doesnt require an Eq to shape it either. Feature: Only having two knobs doesn't seem like alot but its enough for this pedal. Quality: Built like a tank, havent had a scratch on mine and its been all over the place. Value: I got mine for $99.00 Cdn. Worth it. Alot cheaper than most distortion pedals.

Thank you. Your vote has been counted. Could you briefly tell us why the review was or was not helpful?

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Reverse Retro Rocker..."
Sound: I love this latest addition to my arsenal of pedals! It's so innocent looking but if you really open it up you'll find out there's a whole palette of different sounds & textures at your disposal. It's an all around great pedal, that can hang in the arenas of garage rock, punk, grunge, metal, and blues,...yes even the blues! It's got this "grit" to it that just makes a Telecaster sing, through a tweed amp! But it also has the "rocks" to allow a Les Paul to blow a hole through the wall of the house four houses down! Feature: not a lot of features on this baby, but what's there is perfect! There's an "Output" knob and a "Distortion" knob, and then there's the footswitch, other than that, there's not much else, but these few devices seem to make this pedal become a tone machine, as you can go from soft, clipping, just about to breakup, gritty, smooth, overdriven, all the way to completely fuzzed our, metal, grunge,wailing and so on. Ease of Use: It don't get any easier than this! Output & Distortion....and that's IT! You should be able to find a sound in this thing that's usable for whatever style of music you play. Quality: I've dropped this thing over 100 times and the only sign of damage is the few scratch marks to the paint job, (I'm actually thinking about repainting it in a custom color!) Other than that and having it fall from the 4th floor of an apartment in the Bronx, onto the concrete, and STILL it works, there's nothing left to say....can you say "M-1 Abrams Tank"?? Value: Are you kidding me?...you'd better buy these BEFORE someone wises up and starts charging 3 to 4 times what it's going for NOW! Like I said before I own quite a few pedals, some "boutique" and some just "fillers" but this one actually sounds better than some of the boutique pedals that go for $200 - $400!!! Manufacturer Support: I've never had to deal with them so I don't rightly know if they're good or not, but I'm going to give it a ten, because anyone who builds pedals like THIS must SURELY have a great Customer Support Department....no? The Wow Factor: I like the "vintage" look of the pedal, the color yellow actually helps give it a more 60's - 70's -ish kind of vibe, very retro looking knobs and the size & shape also help to contribute to it's "old-ness" factor, all in all it's VERY desirable!!! Overall: I love this pedal, its perfect for the beginner, or the seasoned veteran looking to broaden their palette. It's not too deep in your pockets, and it's easy on the eyes, if mine were lost or stolen I would replace it immediately! It's THAT good...do yourself a favor, and before you go and drop some serious cash for any other pedal, give this one a demo at your local dealer, I PROMISE you, you WON'T be disappointed!
