MXR and Custom Audio Electronics founder Bob Bradshaw—two names that have shaped the tones of the world’s greatest guitarists—join forces to bring you a dynamic line of pedals. The Boost/Overdrive and Boost pedals are the first offerings in the series produced by MXR, featuring the unique sonic stamp of legendary designer Bob Bradshaw. Since 1980, CAE’s innovative pedal designs were made in limited quantities only for his select clientele. When it was time to bring these pedals to the masses, there was only one name he could trust to deliver the same quality and standards that his customers demand—MXR.

The MC401 is simple in design but superbly effective in solving a variety of mismatched line level and signal conditioning problems that can occur when combining effects. The MC401's circuit design has been used for years by CAE in the world's best guitarist's rigs to remedy these problems and rejuvenate the sparkle, punch and brilliance that can be lost. It can also be used as an ultra-clean boost (up to +20dB) for solos or to drive effects for more dynamics and sensitivity.

  • Simple in design but superbly effective in solving a variety of mismatched line level and signal conditioning problems.
  • Used for years in the world's best guitarist's rigs to remedy level problems.

Power: Single 9 volt battery, ECB003 AC Adapter or ECB004 AC Adapter for 18 volt operation (for increased headroom)(not included)

    Comments about MXR Custom Audio Electronics MC401 Boost/Line Driver Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I'm getting one of these. I tried out a lot of boost pedals in the loop of my EVH head at a music store the other day, including the EP Booster, the Seymour Duncan pickup booster, etc. The salesman brought in his personal booster for me to try, and it was the MC401. Totally transparent, even boosting in the loop. I'm getting one. You should too.
