- Germanium-powered, soft-clipped distortion
- Go from warm, tubey overdrive to gnarly fuzz
- Classic early ’80s hard rock tone
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 classic early ’80s hard rock tone. There still isn’t any distortion unit on the market that sounds like the Distortion+.
Power: Dunlop ECB003 AC Adapter or Single 9 volt battery
“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
