MXR pedals are in my opinion the most underrated pedals on the market by tone snobs: FOR ABSOLUTELY NO REASON!!!!!!!!!!! MXR pedals are always bullet proof and provide easy to tweak tone. Germanium based distortion pedals have always been my favorite due to the responsiveness to pick attack and crunchy awesomeness. Plus anyone can afford this pedal. Try it out, then take it home. *Hands on review by Christopher M. from store 57 in Indianapolis.
