MXR Super Badass Dynamic Overdrive

MXR just unveiled this short video of the Super Badass Dynamic Overdrive, without having a web page for the item and with very little info to support it. The Super Badass line already includes a very popular distortion pedal (that made our list of the best 10 distortions of all time) and a fuzz.

A Guitar Center exclusive, the MXR Super Badass Dynamic Overdrive is presented as a touch-sensitive overdrive that sounds like a revved-up tube amp with a”Cut” voice that can make it sound smoother and warmer when needed, and a “Boost” voice that pushes the volume without losing definition.

Here’s the video of it.

The MXR Super Badass Dynamic O.D. will give any rig as much extra bite as you need while preserving your existing tonal dynamics. With MOSFET clipping diodes under the hood, this pedal’s overdrive is a smooth purr that can be pulled back for a nice, clean boost or cranked into full gear for vintage high-gain grind. On the dashboard, a simple set of controls allows you to dial in the right sound for your setup, feature your classic Output, Tone, and Gain controls along with a Boost/Cut switch that allows you to bump up the overall level with a little extra midrange or drop everything down a notch. This pedal sounds killer on its own, but we think it sounds simply sublime when used to rev up a tube amp that’s just about to cross the line.
