Video: Jim Dunlop Introduces MXR Prime Distortion Pedal

May 17th, 2013

Dunlop Manufacturing, in partnership with Guitar Center, has announced the new MXR Prime Distortion pedal.

It is available exclusively at Guitar Center stores, Guitar Center online and Musicians Friend online. This new pedal will be available for purchase on May 22.

The new MXR Prime Distortion conjures vintage hard clipping that’s raw, powerful and highly responsive to the guitar player’s attack. With its classic Output, Tone and Distortion control setup, this pedal’s huge, articulate sound is easy to dial in. The Prime Distortion packs a huge punch when you dig in, but it also cleans up when you pull back.

This 100 percent analog distortion uses low-noise op amps, so you don’t get any extra noise when the gain levels soar.

Features:

• Responsive to attack
• Output, Tone and Distortion controls
• Low noise op amps
• 100 percent analog
• Street price: $49.99.
