A great distortion to add to your chain to get huge tones and tons of sustain.

The MXR Prime Distortion conjures up vintage hard-clipping distortion. This pedal's warm, articulate sound is easy to dial in with a classic Output, Tone, Distortion control setup. The Prime Distortion is highly responsive to the intensity of your attack, cleaning up when you pull back and packing a huge punch when you dig in. We designed this 100% analog distortion with low noise op amps, so you won't get any extra noise added to your signal. Like all MXR pedals, the Prime Distortion comes in a heavy-duty housing with durable jacks and switches for a lifetime on the road.

  • Amazingly Good!

    As reviewed by Todd Zimmerman on 5/24/2013

    I loved the MXR Custom Bad Ass 78' Distortion, maybe I will again some day, but it has been usurped by the Prime Distortion. It is even better than the demos imply. Fat to Furry, Dark with mud, Bright without being harsh, loud with being noisy. Loads of drive, sustain, without the odd self modulation some distortion pedals create when pushed to the extreme. All that for an amazingly low price. For me it really shines on Telecasters. Hands done a fantastic pedal!

  • Wicked Li'l Critter!

    As reviewed by JEFFREY TRIBBY on 12/30/2013

    I'd been trying to find a certain kinda bluesy, sustained sound with some smooth grit to it. I heard that sound on demos of this little pedal and got one. Yessir, that's what I needed all along, and I didn't have to pay big bucks to get that sound from an expensive rack-mount system. Ever try this pedal through a 12-string Ricky or an Omen-8? I even put it to an 8-string bass and a 7-string bass that goes down to a low F#. The tone and everything held up nicely. Now that's a versatile little box, especially for the price. I can reproduce every sound I heard in the demos, so that pretty much says it. Newbies to the guitar scene can get great enjoyment out of it without going broke. I highly recommend it.

  • Very responsive

    As reviewed by Lee Dress on 7/1/2013

    if you play anything that requires you to go from clean to dirty quickly, you will love this pedal. the pedal is very responsive to your guitar's volume input. I set my rhythm pickup to a low volume and my lead pickup to full on, then I can switch back and forth between clean and dirty. it works very well at holding a steady volume when i switch. Love it so far!
