    It svre crunch!
    It respects the sound of your guitar that we recognize.
    It is dynamic and responds your attack style.
    Easily found (s) sound (s) that is sought, me anyway - the sharpness of Blood Sugar Red Hot!
    I play on a strat.

    USE

    This is not a Big Disto!
    Overdrive, Crunch and Disto.
    For me, it's a Idale pedal for rhythm.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Buy 110 without battery, adapter possibilities. (9v)
    Very good sound quality.
    The accuracy of all Tone is, like the rest.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I do not know what to say, go try it!
    Completely satisfied.
    Simple and effective, it is worth more than the 100.

    I hesitated with RAT, the MXR is me and my Start breathable.

    analog distortion
    potentiometers gain, level and tone.

    UTILIZATION

    very easy to use because you only have to increase the gain to such background and gradually raise the level or do the opposite and you get a huge sound that "inflates" substantially a single coil is simple, when I use my telecaster with, it sounds huge, like a Les Paul. really good, the sound is not distorted, signal very well respected, dynamic, beautiful, warm and well defined.
    but I take a point because this pedal is more akin to a (large) overdrive, beautiful indeed, but lacking a bit of saturation

    Analog effect, advertised as distortion. 3 control knobs: level, tone and gain. The ultra classic that has been proven!
    Indestructible case, usual in MXR.

    UTILIZATION

    Simple but very effective and incremental adjustments. Manuel minimalist dispensable.

    SOUND QUALITY

    So here's a pedal announced as a distortion. Either I'm deaf and I do not think either my pedal has different characteristics from any other MXR M115-I do not believe-or MXR guys are mistaken in calling it. For me, it is probably not an overdrive and a distortion. But whatever! the effect is stunning. Okay, I concede that it is better to know before you buy if you can try ...

    This MXR offers typed vintage sounds: warm, generous and soft in the low mids in the bass. The tone plays primarily on the register and even push 17h does not change drastically the overall sound. It is better to know and appreciate this temperament immediately!

    OVERALL OPINION

    As I explained in my opinion on the MC402, the Disto III goes perfectly with it. It enjoys the best of both worlds: the vintage character of the Disto III and modern character of the 402. And most importantly, we get endless sustain (with Les Paul) without any breath (well, do not mount the amp volume to 10 or 12!). The residual noise of these two pedals used simultaneously is therefore at an incredibly low and even inaudible volume apartment or recording level.
    Used alone, the Disto III shows excellent when taken for what it really is: an overdrive. I appreciate his somewhat dark character that captures solo. It is above all in this application that I also advise. No it is not in good rhythm but I prefer other models, always with MXR.

    UTILIZATION

    very simple. I wanted a distortion that sounded better than a boss and I realized that this was the best result with little gain for another boost pedal or drive the amp.

    will gain crunch "means" good little distortion to the 70's. Do not expect to find a huge reserve of gain. Distortion III the name is misleading, here we are in the presence of a muscular overdrive.

    knob the tone and gain are very progressive but I missed the closeness of the beach (not enough substance and too mini), which reduces its capabilities. to the volume when it makes a big jump to 13h (where we find the volume bypassed) which makes it difficult to adjust.

    SOUND QUALITY

    one of which has his hand to a bit of tone and gain.

    Its vintage style 70's, it smells the led zep. the grain is nice, plus a super overdrive Boss but cooler than the drive channel of my amp (lionheart lamp).
    according regulate according to him you can even find a bluesy side very nice. (I have a P90 handle that love it!)

    For my part, I used to have a grain different from the amp (it is set to have pretty nearly the same gain) and I boost Fulltone OCD with one to give it a modern and acidity that demand contemporary music.

    therefore giving the MXR for the 70's, 80's for ocd, and 2 for the 90's and 2000.

    OVERALL OPINION

    used for 1 year, this is the pedal + "cheap" my PB but it remains. Bosses, they have been less fortunate. the Bypass is true for many.

    In short: a very good alternative to sd2 a 2nd channel to a small single-channel all-tube, a drive to boost, it will delight lovers of blues and 70's rock, but do not expect a plant to gain her dress roge and his name foreshadowed.

    The MXR M115 Distortion III has a really nice tone quality to it and is usable for other genres besides blues. I have only use this with guitar and I probably wouldn't recommend it for use with any other instrument, although it would work fine. I just think the specific tone this has it probably best with guitar. It is great for playing blues lead lines and also works great as an all around rhythm guitar overdrive.

    UTILIZATION

    The general configuration and set of the M115’s couldn't be easier. It has three knobs - one for level, one for tone, and one for gain. After a few minutes of playing around with this, you should be able to figure out what everything does exactly and get a quick good sound from it. It is easy to get a light, subtle overdrive or to get a nice thick tone. I don't have a manual for this, but like most MXR manuals, it is probably pretty thorough. This being said, the pedal is easy to figure out and most probably won't need a manual.

    SOUND QUALITY

    very very clean sounding.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've been using the M115 for about four or five years. While I don't use it all the time, when I am looking for a specific type of overdrive, this can work like a charm. Boss has a reputation for make quality products, and this pedal definitely fits that bill. It would be hard to break and has a great overall tone quality. The price, like most Boss pedals like this one, is quite cheap and players on all budgets could probably afford one of they wanted it. If you play blues and are looking for an overdrive that isn't too heavy, I definitely recommend taking a look at this. They aren’t expensive and they sound great, that’s a definite buy right there in my opinion.

    CHAC battery is under the pedals, you must disassemble the plate bottom with a screwdriver, too bad. On the same plate there are 4 rubber feet not very big but they seem to hold good.

    I put 9 because it's right what I wanted, those who want an equalizer paramtrique and others go your way ... Least one battery.

    UTILIZATION

    The 3 knobs are pedals that is by design simplicity of a job that will most.
    For rgler sound, a is between the "output" and "gain", and it carves all with the "tone" has to switch over the mix in a solo instance or to stay further back to ensure a rhythm. To find the sound is a fast, it's effective.
    Er's manual, wait ... I look There's a good mini manual in the box, that of indoor uses the same thing, and in addition provides the technical data and information for ceusses who know nothing about anything like that can put a battery or power supply, and especially how to use it (!) with a, 3 rglages types are indicated.
    I put 10 because the knobs are really something, was quick to correct the sound and get whatever you want.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The PDAL is trs versatile, it offers more or less supported crunch according to the employe guitar up a little more than half of the race of Cain, APRS ca saturates frankly, my Les Paul spits fire! For a stratum as it works pretty good, frankly, I love it!
    Saturations do not dteriorent the nature of the instrument and are super cool prcises without ringing.
    This can be used MXR either boost or distortion.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I tried several times with a flopped others (Ibanez TS 808, rat, big muff, line 6 (erk) and so on ...) and I confess to having t u by the M104 (boost / overdrive) of the same brand. In short, this one stood out as easy to use, and a sound which I really liked (it's still done for the base!)

    I like everything in the pedals, the look, sound, simplicity.
    What I like least is the CASC the stack, but do not care I always pass by a power supply, so there!

    I paid 82, and is, as I think it will make me for years ...
    And yes I would do DEFINITIONS choice. (For those who did not follow ;-)

    For the pedal expresses its full power (so as not to be violent, it asks you sound in the face) I have to put the volume pedal has a little over 2 / 3, below it odd it sounds feeble, So when we move from the saturated its clear we have a lower noise level important ... not great ... but hey it tears

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have the last 2 years and I m more separated, I have taken time to find the pedal that I wanted, but's it, and I perceived that I hated the distortion from a boss mt2
    the +: the sounds, the ease of adjustment, strength, and mouth (she has)
