Badass Modified Overdrive - Quick Review
I got this pedal to replace my
yellow MXR Distortion+ on my board which, to be honest I found
a bit fizzy and thin for my own taste and style. The newly
released MXR Badass Overdrive comes in a sturdy brushed metal
case and is just the ticket to perform a clean boost, mild
overdrive or to take your already overdrive amp to eleven.
I tried it with a Gibson Les Paul
and a Marshall DSL valve amplifier and it provides thick creamy
overdrive which can be dialled back if required by rolling
down the volume on your guitar.
Engage the bump switch and low
and mid frequencies are boosted for another type of thicker
tone as well.
As with most high end pedals the
Badass is true bypass and quiet in operation.
Definitely a pedal to keep on
