    MXR has been on fire lately with the releases of the Carbon Copy Delay, '78 Distortion, and Modified O.D. This new MXR distortion (released in 2013 without a ton of fanfare) may quickly become known as one of their best distortion pedals offered to-date.

    The key to this pedal is how hard it is to get a bad sound out of it, despite a great deal of customization. From 8:00 to 10:00 on the Distortion knob, it remains almost completely clean, reminiscent of a mild overdrive or clean boost. There are Marshall flavored tones around 12:00, and it becomes even more saturated and compressed beyond that.

    Unlike other boutiques with complicated multi-knobs and mod switches, the 3-band EQ is as simple to use as an amplifier, but also incredibly versatile. You can cut the mids to make it sound mean, or boost them for a Tubescreamer-like effect.

    This is an excellent new offering on a variety of classic sounds, and at this price, there is a ton of value in this simple-looking little box.

    I purchased this pedal to replace an old distortion pedal with less features and an odd pedal board footprint. The M75 has a good sound, very "British" in character, throaty and deep, but beyond that sound I don't find it as versatile as some other reviewers. It's a little overly compressed and not as responsive to picking and input volume as my previous pedal. Overall not a bad effect, but it could be improved.

      Comments about MXR M75 Super Badass Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This was not my first choice. I was looking at another MXR distortion pedal but the Musicians Friend sale rep was very knowledgable about the new product and on his recommendation, I took a chance. I'm glad I did. This pedal does everything MXR says it will do. It holds its own at both performance and bed room levels. Great for recording and playing live.

      Very happy with the pedal.

        Comments about MXR M75 Super Badass Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

        A distortion pedal with a mid knob! What a concept!
        I have tried Boss, Hardwire, and Seymour Duncan distortion pedals...only the SD Lava Box is usable to my ears. The M75 can do low-gain to High-gain from classic rock to metal, all with an over-drive-like smoothness to it, especially compared to the scratchiness of other pedals by companies noted above. RECOGNIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF THE MID KNOB! Versatility in this distortion pedal comes from, not only its smoothness, but also from the tweaking of the mids which makes it usable beyond just Metal. It CAN be a bit noisy on some eq settings when notes aren't being played, but that is a minor complaint. Great for soloing, low-gain for rhythm parts mmm...mmm...good.

              I got this pedal because I broke the pedal on my Mesa Express 550. I had gigs, so I had a Fender Blues Deluxe and needed a distortion in order to use it. I love all MXR pedals, and this seemed they way to go. I can get sounds similar to my Mesa, but this is more versatile. Great sub harmonics, and the 3 tone knobs give me the sound I want. It adds more power than I need.
              Very happy with this pedal.

              pretty heavy sounding pedal. it has a really surprising amount of distortion, up to around 3 o clock to 5 o clock positions it gets really crunchy, almost like a really nice solid state marshall maxed out.

                    I feel that this is a decent pedal. MXR has a few distortion pedals, the bad A series and also the fullbore metal pedal. I spent a lot of time reviewing this paddle and I have come to the conclusion that it is pretty nice. It can give you a wide variety of different tones. I personally use it with a TS808 tube screamer and would highly recommend using this to warm up the tone. What I mean by that is the tone can come off as scratchy and harsh. If you warm it up with some overdrive it sounds really good.

                    Very Nice pedal to have on a pedal board. This pedal is very versatile... It can used as a distortion, an overdrive, or a three band parametric EQ. Plenty of gain so if I am using rehearsal studio supplied amps and I am not sure what I will be playing out of, I know I can count on this to get a good dirty tone out of a clean amp. I have tried all three bad a$$es.. IMO this is the one that lives up to that title !

                        Keeping in mind that my standards are very high, I should say that this pedal is good, just not up to the standards of the FullTone PlimSoul or the Bogner Ecstacy Red. The complex harmonics and big wide sound just aren't there. But it is very good for the price.
