MXR | A Tasty Combination

Distortion, phase, and analog delay..three classic and essential building blocks for some of the most memorable electric guitar tones ever created.
For over four decades, MXR Innovations & Jim Dunlop have been striving to provide musicians with simple but effective tools to inspire their creativity and enhance their musical vision.
The Super Badass Distortion, Phase 90, and Carbon Copy Analog Delay are prime examples of this mission. These three pedals provide great sounding and versatile tones on their own or when used with other effects.
Guitarist Michael Abraham was asked to put his own musical ideas into this pedal combination to see what could be created while the cameras rolled.

SIGNAL CHAIN FOR DEMO:
Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster + Monster Coil Cable + MXR Phase 90 + MXR Super Badass Distortion + MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay + Suhr Badger 30 (EL34 tubes) + Mesa Boogie 2-12″ Vintage 30’s Cabinet
