The MXR doubleshot is an amazing pedal. Packed with features, this pedal includes two switches that control two different channels of distortion! There's the crunchy distortion and a warm sounding distortion, which you can switch easily by kicking the right switch! The amount of control on this pedal is incredible! You can change the Bass, the Mid, the Treble, the gain, and the output on this pedal! This is a huge advantage if your amp does not give you such control. As we all know, dunlop makes quality equipment, and this is definitely a prime example. Extremely rugged and sturdy, this pedal will last a life time. This is short of an expensive pedal, but believe me its worth it if your really want a pedal that'll give you any type of distortion you want!
For years I could never find a distortion pedal I was ever satisfied with. They never compared to the strength and power I could get from my 100watt amp head's natural distortion. Then I tried the MXR M-151 Doubleshot Distortion Pedal. One word says it all. Wow! This pedal is the total package as far as distortion boxes go. It's secret is it's 18volt operation. Having twice the power of a typical dist. pedal, it's capabilities are enhanced. With 2 channels of amazing drive and tone it's like taking two amp's big sound, and packing it in a box that you can hold in your hand. Each channel has a volume, bass, midrange, treble, and gain knobs, and both feature a focus control which acts like a midrange sweep, and has leds to show it's on. The bottom channel starts at a clean overdrive and ramps up to a raging growl with the increase of the gain. This channel is comparable to a vintage Marshall in my opinion. The top channel brings the cards to the table. With the same circuitry as the MXR "Dime Distortion" pedal, it starts at a light distortion and with the increase of the gain becomes a screaming machine capable of everything from bottom heavy nu-metal crunch to the cry of full lead tones. The M-151 was made for complete control of it's operation. It has one switch to turn it on and off, and a second switch to switch between the two channels. A red "on" led is present to let you know when the pedal is active, and separate led's are beside each channel showing which channel is selected, even when the pedal is not active for reference. Whether used for a main distion effect or a lead boost, this rugged, durable pedal is perfect. The MXR M-151 Doubleshot Distortion Pedal is the pedal all other distrortion boxes wish they could be.
The Positve first is,I am able to dial in 2 different distortion settings which is wonderful for switching from a rythym to a lead solo without disrupting the sound tech. or your amp settings. The negative on this it doesnt have a distortion level only a gain which is very touchy and throws lots of feedback. I would have given this a 5 if it had a distortion level along with the gain. I personally love this type of gain if you like that hendrix feedback this is for you.
this is the best distortion pedal ive ever used!the sounds u can get out of this pedal is amazing.you can get a hard metal sound out of it or just regular rock.the whole second channel thing is amazing, its like having two extra distorion channels on ur amp.THIS PEDAL ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bought this on sale and have had it for about a year and I love it. MXR pedals are very good and worth the price. It has all of the controls to tweak it for the sound you like and has 2 different types of distortion to keep you happy for a while and a strong tone. I enjoy it and would recommend it to anyone.
