MXR M104 Distortion+ Distortion Pedal

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+.

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