MXR Micro Amp - Review – 18/12/2015

The MXR micro amp has been a standard on many a musicians pedal board for many years. Quite simply it features a gain control which allows you to add a set amount of gain to any guitar. This can be useful as a clean boost in a solo with adding anything to your tone or even to match guitars with an uneven output such as humbuckers and single coil equipped instruments.

In my view the most important “feature” in this pedal is the fact that the gain adjustment starts at zero. I have tried other boost pedals where the gain starts at 5 or 6 decibels and that on occasions maybe louder than what you want to achieve.

A simple sturdy pedal that should last for many years to come.
