The MXR Custom Audio Electronics Boost/Overdrive pedal offers a powerful combination of a dynamic overdrive and an independent clean boost circuit, all housed within a compact pedal design. The overdrive section delivers a classic and versatile tone, adding warmth, sustain, and punch to your sound without coloration. With a simple twist of the gain knob, you can go from a bluesy, slightly overdriven sound to a full-metal crunch, making it suitable for a wide range of playing styles.

One of the standout features of the MC402 is its exceptional touch sensitivity and responsiveness to picking dynamics. When you roll back your guitar volume, the pedal cleans up nicely without losing its fullness, allowing for expressive and nuanced playing. This level of sensitivity makes the MC402 a highly dynamic overdrive, ensuring that your playing style is accurately translated through the pedal.

The independent boost circuit of the MC402 is the exact same circuit used by Custom Audio Electronics (CAE) for years to address various signal conditioning issues in major guitar systems. This means that the boost function provides a clean and powerful volume boost to enhance your signal without adding unwanted noise or color to your tone.

Built with high-quality components, the MXR Custom Audio Electronics Boost/Overdrive ensures quiet operation and trouble-free interaction with other pedals on your pedalboard. Staying true to the CAE tradition, the design is straightforward and minimalist, featuring only the necessary controls for achieving the desired boost and overdrive tones.

This pedal can be powered using a 9-volt battery. Alternatively, it is compatible with the Dunlop ECB003 9-volt adapter, as well as MXR's DC Brick, Iso-Brick, and Mini Iso-Brick power supplies (though these are not included with the pedal).

For guitarists seeking a versatile and powerful pedal that combines a clean boost circuit with a punchy overdrive, the MXR Custom Audio Electronics Boost/Overdrive is an excellent choice. Its simple and efficient design, touch sensitivity, and wide range of tones make it a valuable addition to any pedalboard setup.
