OVERVIEW

For more than 20 years, the MXR Micro Amp has been a staple among the world's top artists because of its ability to boost and sweeten up your guitar or bass tone and drive the front of your amp. The MXR Custom Shop team has combined those features with a specially-tuned EQ section and low-noise op-amps to create the Micro Amp+.

With its Gain knob, the Micro Amp+ allows you to dial up just as much gain as the original-up to +26dB-but with added EQ controls, you can now finely sculpt your boosted signal. For the classic Micro Amp sound, set the Bass and Treble controls to noon.

Along with these upgrades, the MXR Custom Shop team added low-noise op amps-so you don't get any extra noise at super high levels-and true bypass switching. With the sturdy housing and durable components that MXR is known for, this pedal is ready for the road.

MXR Custom Shop effects are designed for discerning players with unique and specific needs-players who know their gear inside and out and carefully consider every part of their signal chain, from guitar output to amplifier input. Likewise, the Custom Shop's master pedal builders consider every component and circuit board layout choice with the same discretion, ensuring players with refined tastes and finely tuned ears get the tools they need for their own sonic exploration.

Boost your sound.

FEATURES
  • Up to +26dB clean boost
  • Specially-tuned Bass and Treble controls for fine tonal shaping
  • Low noise circuitry

    Comments about MXR Custom Shop Micro Amp+ Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I have another one of these without the treble and bass controls, like this one for my acoustic guitar running direct to the board to get more bass response and a boost when you need it going up against the electric guitars. Nice unit.

      Comments about MXR Custom Shop Micro Amp+ Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I use the micro amp + as a pre-amp for the guitar tracks on my Fender Passport Venue. Without the pedal the signal is a little bit weak. The micro amp + fixes that problem. I do NOT need a separate amp for the guitar. (I still can use one, though, but it's now optional.

      Comments about MXR Custom Shop Micro Amp+ Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I play though Egnater and Mesa amps. I find myself using this pedal more then the OD808 on my board. I used to own the original micro amps. This is so much better with the 2 band eq. I now own two of these.. I use one in the effects loop as a lead boost and another in front as a transparent overdrive, and trust me this is more transparent than any of the so called transparent overdrives on the market today. If you have a great sounding amp that only goes to ten, this would be your eleven !

        Comments about MXR Custom Shop Micro Amp+ Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This pedal can act as a tone shaping tool as well as a boost. Since my small tube amp is rather dark-sounding this pedal helps me tweak the EQ for more clarity without losing presence and without adding harshness. Then I can set the gain to push the amp hard and get great overdrive. I had looked for a long time for a simple yet usable boost and I definitely found it. By adding boost/cut bass and treble controls to the classic Micro Amp design MXR made this a much more flexible tool. If transparency is something you need then you're in luck; the Micro Amp+ keeps your guitar sounding like your guitar. It's wired for true bypass and the casing finish is an attractive pearl color. This pedal will be staying on my pedal board for a while. Nice job, MXR.
