tjon901's review"Bland OD"

TC Electronic MojoMojo Overdrive
TC Electronics has been around for a long time. They are not that popular among guitar players but they have a wide range of effects they offer. The Mojomojo is supposed to be kind of an old school overdrive pedal. The pedal certainly has old school looks. In this pedal you get a slim chassis. The pedal has a brown sparky finish. The controls are simple and clearly labeled. There are 4 knobs on the face with a mini switch and a large single footswitch. The 4 knobs are large and clearly labeled. The top two knobs are Drive and Level. The knobs below them are Bass and Treble. The mini switch in the middle is a voice switch. In the middle of the pedal is a bright red switch that tells you when the thing is activated.

UTILIZATION

This pedal has good simple and rugged construction like most metal pedals. There is not much to go wrong on a simple analog overdrive pedal like this. The knobs are big enough that you can adjust them with your foot. The LED is bright so you have no excuse for not knowing if you are on or off. The pedal offers true bypass switching which should be standard nowadays.

SOUND QUALITY

The OD sound from this pedal is alright. It is not anything very special. You can really kick an amp over the top with the sound from the pedal but the sound itself is not that unique. The pedal offers a pretty vintage overdrive tone but you can get a similar tone from many other pedals. With the drive all the way up the gain is not that much. It is like a thick classic rock gain tone. This pedal does not pack much of a punch. This is more of a sizzle on top pedal than a really thick tone pedal. With the voice switch up you get more midrange in the tone. This sounds good for cleans but it can also give you a really honky annoying sound if you are running more drive.

OVERALL OPINION

The sound from this pedal is not that unique. It sounds like just about any decent old amp at the edge of break up. There is not a lot of gain or tone to be had with this pedal. If you are looking for a classic distortion sound but for some reason do not want to get it from an amp this is a good pedal. Otherwise all the tones you can get form this pedal you can pretty much get from any decent amp or any other overdrive pedal.

TC Electronic MojoMojo Overdrive
See previous opinion, is already was said!

UTILIZATION

It is relatively simple, a drive button, a level, a bass and treble (handy that way)!
I did not read the manual, in fact I wonder if it y one!
I find it completely unnecessary voice button that adds / takes nothing!

SOUND QUALITY

The ovredrive is hot and creamy to perfection, nothing to do with overdrive MXR or Ibanez guy who will certainly be more accurate but much cooler.
For blues or arpeggios radiohead is perfect.
Be careful not to overextend the drive so that the sound remains audible.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 1 year, I have at home MXR GT OD and Ibanez TS 808 that have nothing to do, they are different pedals.
Over time, of course I would do this choice because this pedal sounds great!

MacB's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)"MOJO WORKING GOT MY friends!"

TC Electronic MojoMojo Overdrive
- Not only overdrive distortion or fuzz.
- 1 button "DRIVE" = to give more warmth and crunch to your tone.
- 1 button "LEVEL" = to magnify the effect of drive
- 1 button switch "voice" = which is a button making your bass sound more present and adding heat advantage.
- 1 button "BASS" = removed or added to the bass drive effect.
- 1 button "TREBLE" = removed or added to the acute effect of drive.
- 1 trigger button says "true bypass".
- No rack
- Technology to analog priori.
- Connection to transformer or power supply 9V battery back, close by a large screw.
- Made in USA (American-Asian components), pedal machine, no hand wiring!

UTILIZATION

5 simple configuration buttons, LEVEL, DRIVE, BASS, TREBLE, VOICE SWITCH.
No manual for me.
The sound editing is simple plug and play, turn left and this is what more.

SOUND QUALITY

Effects are realistic enough, however limited to certain genres and not others. This is a perfect pedal for blues rock, country, rock'n'roll and all that is in the universe even modern rock. Metalleuse metalheads and go your way!

Level so overall its next configuration of your instrument and amp settings bass and treble will be different from one individual to the other.

- Regarding the drive, we begin to have the gain around 12:00.
- To what level is the same at about 12:00.

- To Drive, around 11:00, we get a crunch shy.
- For Level less than 12:00, it has no real impact on the drive = normal reation to me as it does not distortion or fuzz like its cousins ​​in Fulltone, it is normal that the crunch is done later on button DRIVE and LEVEL

- To switch the voice, for me the pedal is fabulous with the switch down so engaged. Upwards, the sounds of the pedals are colder trend leaning towards a BOSS SD1, Ibanez TS9 or, MAXON OD9.

My personal configuration: TELECASTER AMERICAN STANDARD 2012 / MXR BOOST LINE DRIVER / TC ELECTRONIC MOJO MOJO / BIG MUFF PI / FENDER PRINCETON REVERB 1965.

Settings OD: DRIVE bottom / LEVEL between 12:00 and background / 12:00 BASS / TREBLE 12:00 / VOICE engaged.

For me this is a real hot overdrive as the old one should be in my OD and more transparent. It is not as compressed as the star od market as MAXON OD808 or Ibanez, MXR CUSTOM BADASS 78; saturation is natural to desire as if you pushed the amp thoroughly.

It is perfect for the old school rock like modern blues rock, Hard & Heavy, Grunge (and music related to punk) it gives the most natural saturation of the amp, especially if the amp very clean and very little to drive.

- The style to me or excel the more the blues, blues rock, rock'n'roll, country with the voice activated switch course.

- Amps with which it may associate are really amps with a strong clean appearance (eg FENDER BASSMAN, TWIN REVERB 65 etc) and amps with drive (ex: PEAVEY CLASSIC 30, 50, the classic range of brand, ORANGE, MESA BOOGIE LONESTAR, TRANSATLANTIC, MARSHALL). I had the opportunity to try it also with a PEAVEY CLASSIC 30, the sound was warm, bold, generous wish, essait made with a telecaster american standard 2012.

- It combines beautifully with fuzz pedals BIG MUFF PI as a fuzz or type VISUAL SOUND ANGRY FUZZ, it complements this kind of grain fuzz or what are it's fuzz who complements.

- However, I think that combining a distortion that is not necessarily the most optimal use of the pedal.



OVERALL OPINION

- I use it for 1 month.
- I tried the following models: FULLTONE OCD, MOSFET, Maxon OD808, CALIFORNIA TECH 21, Ibanez TS808, MAXON OD9 is the MOJO MOJO won the challenge. Knowing that I was part iniatialement for MAXON OD808, but I found that the TC had much less compressed sound much more natural.

- Highlights: - natural saturation, transparent soyant while warm.
- Switch the "voice" that really plays its role, which strengthens the warmth mentioned previously.
- The BASS and TREBLE knobs very responsive in sound.
- The buttons and LEVEL DRIVE does not cut, the signal amp and guitar is preserved, which is rare on other pedals competing store today. The signal remains as it is neither doped nor less than the sound of the amp.
- Strength of housing

- Weaknesses: - slight play in the true bypass, a point which I think manufacturing remains fragile in terms of design. At the same time I had this problem already on a pedal shop, and true bypass is not known so far detached. However, the Board normally go, just not the "barbaric". Finally, this kind of play is changed easily with a professional, so no real concern.

To finish the question I remake this choice, my answer is obviously yes!

TC Electronic MojoMojo Overdrive
Analog Overdrive. No editing on a PC, it's the only pedal format TonePrint who does not have USB. At the same time, it's not rocket science to solve!
Connections: in / out and 9v

UTILIZATION

Extremely easy configuration. The manual is useless. You turn it sounds!

SOUND QUALITY

The pedal gives a second life to a rather cold amp (Vox AD50VT for my part). The pickups on my Ibanez S540 are having heart's content. Double, split ... It's all good!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 months. It pretty well complete my MXR GT-OD. The TC Electronic is more subtle than the MXR. It allows me to have something light and drive harder to reach on foot.
I tried a trick blues thing at Boss, cold and boring to die (in my opinion).
Most: simplicity, sound, look. Cons: the switch voicing seems little influence on the sound.
The quality / price is right. I would do probably the choice. I plan to take an all-tube amp, I hope not be disappointed by this pedal ...

Kokito's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" TC Electronics has invented the MG Marshall in a pedal ..."

TC Electronic MojoMojo Overdrive
As everyone knows, is an Overdrive pedal format standard TC Electronics.

Features:
- TonePrint: Instant access the settings via a computer
- Voicing Switch: Boost the bass in an extraordinary way
- Mono In & Out
- Controls: Drive, Bass, Treble and Level
- True Bypass
- ToneLock: Backing up your presets

Short on paper, it looks pretty!

UTILIZATION

Back point by point on the features of this pedal:
- TonePrint: Instant access the settings via a computer
So there I confess I have not taken the time to look into it ... but is it worth it really interested?

- Voicing Switch: Boost the bass in an extraordinary way
Well then ... is the joke of the year ... it cuts squarely rather low yeah ... 2 position in the switch, there's no boost.

- Mono In & Out
So it at least, it's great! :-P

- Controls: Drive, Bass, Treble and Level
Pout bof ... the knobs are not very effective ... it's like a Marshall amp head: -]
The Level knob 15h was to find a consistent volume level ... great range of use ...

- True Bypass
Wow top ... Finally something that works!

- ToneLock: Backing up your presets
Such, I have not taken the time to watch!

SOUND QUALITY

So there ... we really reached the heights with this pedal.
It's foutage of mouth altogether.

I plugged my Soldano HotRod 50 XL + and a Gibson Les Paul mounted BKP + a Fender Telecaster Blackout.

If you want an even worse than the Marshall MG, this pedal is for you ... no heat, no presence, no draft as possible ... it's ugly ... it's frankly indescribable. Unable to come out of the mix, even increasing the volume!

I felt like I have some stuff very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very low end ...

I still can not get over it! I'm chamboullé this morning ...

OVERALL OPINION

To answer question:

I used it once again.
I tried many overdrive pedals ... and I will continue, I seek the holy grail.
There is nothing special that I like about this pedal.
Value for money: to shit!
With experience, I will not go that choice.

This is the second time I buy TC Electronics ... it's over you'll catch me doing. (Well I've said for another brand to another opinion: D).
The first was a TC Nova Repeater ... bypass was not really top by the effects cons really interesting ... damage: - /. I thought that with a true bypass on Mojomojo, I do not risked much! Charles you speak!

Anyway ... pity, then try before you buy ... or do like me, Thomann and presto, money back guarantee for 30 days!

Arf ...
