With its Gain knob, the MXR Custom Shop 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 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.

Features:

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

Comments about Hal Leonard The New Imperial Edition Soprano Songs (2 Accomp CDs):

I have used the original Micro-Amp for a while, and I really like it, but the Micro-Amp Plus is a definite upgrade to a classic pedal. The tone controls are well suited to the guitar adding clarity or thump without being harsh or muddy. The gain control seems to be about the same as the original, which is a classic clean boost that can overdrive the preamp if pushed. The only minor downside is the weight of the body is about 1/3 of the original, so it doesn't feel as bullet-proof as the original to me, however the build quality is still very good. I guess if you carry your pedal board the lower weight would be a good thing.
