I’ve had the MXR Custom Badass Modified O.D. in my arsenal for a while now, and thought it was finally time to get on to reviewing this brilliant noise maker. This pedal is based of a famous green overdrive pedal, albeit with a few bells and whistles added.
I’ve aimed to keep the overdrive as transparent as possible, demonstrating the gain stages at 9, 12, and 3 o’clock. on both clean and overdriven settings.
I’m using my custom Ibanez style guitar with alder body, maple neck/rosewood fretboard, Gotoh licensed Floyd Rose with FU-Tone brass block, and Seymour Duncan JB/59 Neck pickups. It’s being played through my Blackstar HT-5 head into a Celestion Vintage 30 loaded 1×12. I’m using the TC Electronic Flashback X 4 delay with the analog setting engaged for the lead boost demo.
Review will be coming soon.
