News MXR M78 Custom Badass '78 Distortion

At NAMM, Dunlop unveiled the '78 Custom Badass Distortion, the Bass Compressor, the Noise Clamp, the Analog Chorus and the Wylde Phase.


The '78 Custom Badass Distortion uses a hot-rodded classic distortion circuit for gnarly amp stack tones, designed for both “biting leads and chugging rhythms, ” according to Dunlop. The Crunch button expands the dynamic range of the distortion.


The Bass Compressor is based on a classic studio compressor, into a stompbox the size of a Phase 90. Constant Headroom Technology is designed to keep your performance clear and clean, with 10 gain-reduction stage LEDs. The Bass Compressor is described as transparent, so you don’t have to worry about tone loss.


The Noise Clamp is designed to get rid of hiss and excess noise from your effects loop using side-chaining and reducing gain levels up to 26dB with the Trigger knob. At extreme levels of gain, you are able to maintain definition and clarity, Dunlop assures.


The Analog Chorus is built from all-analog bucket brigade circuitry for “organic, fluid texture.” It allows you to cut High and Low frequencies separately for control over your tone.


Zakk Wylde uses the Wylde Phase for his solos and leads, most recently heard on Black Label Society’s single “Overlord” from their album Order of the Black. They’re making a limited number in 2011.
