MXR M104 Distortion + Distortion Pedal
In the middle ranges of the Output and Distortion controls, you'll find soft-clipped distortion tones that sound truly retro-authentic, especially when they're mixed with a splash of reverb. Pushing Distortion up higher produces classic fuzz tones that are finding their way onto an increasing number of albums. A welcome, enjoyable alternative to LA saturation and British crunch
This little yellow box is responsible for those great distortion sounds heard on so many classic recordings. Set the Distortion control low and crank the Output knob to drive the front end of your amp for cool blues tones, or max out the Distortion knob for the tone that made Randy Rhoads famous. There still isn't any distortion unit on the market that sounds like the Distortion+.
"When I was 15, I first arrived at my potential sound with an MXR Distortion+, a Memphis LP copy and a Fender Princeton amp." - Slash

* Overdrive with just the right flavor of non-brittle signal breakup
* Germanium-powered clipping emulates classic tube amp crunch
* Crank the Distortion for fuzz that simulates extreme overdrive
If the distortion tones are unpleasant or breaking up, it is possible that you've set the Output knob too high on the M-104. Try backing the Distortion knob all the way down (counterclockwise). If the unpleasant distortion persists, it's because you're overdriving your pre-amp with too hot a signal. Turn the Output knob down, then re-introduce the desirable distortion into the effect with the Distortion knob. Try combining the M-104's distortion effect with reverb, for pleasant, classic lead guitar tones that dominate the mix!
The M104 Distortion + can be powered by a single 9 volt alkaline battery or AMS EPMRPC921R 9V c- power supply.
* Footswitch toggles effect on/bypass (red LED indicates on)
* Output knob sets total output gain
* Distortion knob adjusts ratio of clean signal mixed with distorted effect
