Ultimate riff power is yours.

This compact but powerful MXR guitar pedal is all you need to unleash the most devastating contemporary metal guitar tones ever heard.

The effect pedal's extensive EQ controls, with Bass, Mid, sweepable Mid-Freq and Treble knobs let you sculpt your tone with fiendish precision. The additional Scoop switch provides an instant high and low frequency boost that'll rumble the room while also adding clarity. Available from MXR, the world leader in analog pedal technology.

  • Fullbore

    As reviewed by Steven Wimer on 2/8/2010

    Alot of knobs, but they all serve a purpose. The Frequency knob adds 'grit' to your tone. The noise gate feature is cool if you play at freakishly high volume settings. Oh, and ungodly amounts of gain. True bypass, gotta love it. Average battery life and built like a tank. Easily does any form of metal.

    As reviewed by Carlos on 10/16/2010

    This's pedal it's the best for riff's or even with a overdrive to use for solos, this baby makes even a fender strat cry like a little an ESP ("like"). This pedal will be a classic of MXR pedals, thanks.

  • Excellent tone!

    As reviewed by Matthew Boyagian on 6/11/2010

    I've owned this pedal for about three months now and I just can't get enough of the versatality offered with this pedal. MXR should have named it "M-60"'s big bore gun! Very well made. The scoop feature is great for enhancing my personal tone, I think you'll find the same to be true. The gate I can't say too much as I haven't been able to thoroughly test it at high volumes. A fellow guitarist buddy of mine loves it more than his metal muff!! An EXCELLENT value! Guitar Center & MXR rock!
