Looking for a nice distortion pedal? If you are then I highly recommend the MXR distortion pedal. In my opinion, this is so far the best distortion pedal. Very simple and effective, you can get some awesome tone with this pedal — rock, metal, punk, etc. It can do anything! All you need is this pedal and a good tube amp and then you are all set. I consider it a solid pre-amp, but don’t expect to sound like Zakk Wylde without hot pickups, some solid tube crunch and a good reverb and chorus to match. All in all a good bang for your buck if you are looking for a mid-range distortion pedal.
