      Comments about MXR Custom Shop LA Machine Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

      To my ear it's not quite a bigmuff or a fuzzface, but overall it's awesome thick fuzz with globs of sustain. The octave effect is absolutely killer; when I first turned it on I was blown away. It's very pronounced compared to others I've tried, and I like how it can be turned on and off.

      If you are seeing the other review here: perhaps the reviewer got a bogus unit. It's also worth noting that the octave effect sounds better on higher frets. This is just how fuzz octave effects work.

      Dunlop/MXR have stepped up their game big time in the last couple of years, particularly with their "custom shop" stuff. Before you buy that "boutique" pedal, checkout MXR!

      Comments about MXR Custom Shop LA Machine Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Not like the MXR video. I wanted a raw and killer fuzz, this ain't it. Octave button does nothing. I pick up our local Catholic radio station on AM radio very clearly! Way too expensive. My EHX big pi nano is 50 times better.

      Awesome

      By No one

      from Pandem

      Comments about MXR Custom Shop LA Machine Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This is an awesome pedal. Adds a little noise but oh well. I've never left a review for anything. My feeling is find your sound, write a song or two and let this quest for tone go. No one cares about tone but you. Write a song. Or play in your bedroom all your life and review pedals.

      Comments about MXR Custom Shop LA Machine Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

      very good quality, vintage fuzz tones, well made pedal , easy to use , but octave effect needs to be footswitchable, on for solos, off for power cords and regular chords. also noticed that not much of the guitar or amp character is able to come through when the fuzz effect is on. Alot of fun to solo with octave up effect, and the fuzz is massive saturation.

          Comments about MXR Custom Shop LA Machine Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

          This is, yet isn't, your average fuzz pedal.

          Its got more gain than will ever be necessary on tap, when the distortion is dimed, it sounds and acts like a really high quality fuzz. When it rolled back it seems to act a lot more like a heavy distortion. There is no glitchyness, its smooth and very full with great bottom, but not muddy.The octave function tracks single notes extremely well, not so great with chords.

          Mxr makes some of the most rugged, nearly indestructable pedals known to man, and this is no exception.

          If you're in the market for a GREAT fuzz, this is a solid option. Ive tried everything from the stuff Devi Ever makes all the way to the classics like the Fuzzface and The BigMuff. I went with this one. I have no reason to ever regret that decision.
