    Hey, who loves the pedals from MXR’s Custom Shop. I got one last week and have another on the way.

    The La Machine is MXR’s modernization of the classic Foxx Tone Machine, the gnarly ‘70s octave fuzz. As much dirt as a Big Muff, but nastier, and with a switchable octave-up.

    Incoming, I have a Custom Comp, which started as a Dyna Comp including the old, discontinued metal-can IC that made the originals special. Since then, they’ve updated it with internal trim pots to adjust the attack and treble. So, it’s like a classic Dyna Comp that can be adjusted to be slightly less so.

    I love how MXR takes these classic designs and then makes them more versatile and more user-friendly to meet 21st-century demands. In both cases, they’ve added 9-volt power jacks and LEDs that the originals never had. They shrank the Tone Machine down to a pedalboard-friendly size. Classic-pedal sound-alikes without the cost, size, or reliability issues of true classics.

    Does the Custom Bad*** 78 distortion pedal count? Its the only MXR I have. Its a nice well built pedal that really livens up the Blues jr.

    Anything MXR makes with "Custom" in its name counts.

    Here are my two, side-by-side. Now, if I could only find the time to play them.

    Phase 99 here. I use it as the basis of my stereo acoustic rig. They were discontinued for a while (gone everywhere for months when I got mine--- I got lucky when a store found an extra in their warehouse.), but it seems that as of this month they're back, so I might pick up another for my Keys rig

    The Il Diavolo is my new "automatic Tubescreamer recommendation". Stack it with something Bluesbreaker-based like a Butah and you've got it all.

    Lots of gain available, responsiveness to dynamics and volume knob activity, hearty mids without a chopped-off low end. It's just so good.
