MXR Custom Badass Modified Overdrive

Stupid name, great sound. A TS clone basically with 100hz knob to dial in bass. Really makes the pedal. Tone control is also excellent. Has a boost button, but don't use it that much. Lots of gain on tap, but works as an-almost clean boost as well.

I think the name suits this pedal perfectly, it is in fact pretty badass.

That's button actually boosts the low mids specifically. I've got one - very nice take of the TS circuit. Pairs well with the Bad Ass '78 Distortion (a Distortion + mod), fancy that.

I also have a ts-9. Which one should go first in line or does it matter?

I like it! It's a great pedal. The '78 is a DS-1 modified though, not a D+ or a RAT (I've heard people say all three). It was reverse engineered to be a Keeley modified BOSS DS-1 with a couple small changes (probably to keep from being sued!). I use both pedals ('78 and Modified) on my board.

Head to head I liked the 78 better compared to the Hyde side of the J&H. Tonally they are both similar, but the 78 has a more open sound.

I didn't care for the OD. It had a harshness to it that I couldn't dial out.

I finally had a chance to try one yesterday.
Dumb name, i mean really dumb. But as much
as I've grown tired of the TS sound, I really
liked the BA OD. It seems that Dunlop\MXR
managed to keep everything cool about the
TS, and eliminate everything that makes a TS
get under my skin.

I've owned the '78 Distortion for over a year now and loved it. Immediately sold my RAT and older Dist + pedals. Thought I'd give the Modified O.D. a try. LOVE IT! It will now replace my Way Huge Green Rhino (see ebay for this one!!).

So impressed. YEs, it's a TS type circuit but it's got something I can't seem to put my finger on. It's got loads of touch and this sound that is just better than any TS/green box I've ever owned. It works so great with the '78 Distortion too. they are a perfect pair!

Whats wrong with the name? I like MXR pedals, should test drive this one but got the TS sound covered. I have their Carbon Copy delay and Micro Amp boost pedal they are both great pedals!

Sounds wonderful with buckers. Wide range of tones available from Tweed to Blackface. For single coils (Tele & Reverend Jetstream 390) I prefer my Bad Monkey.
