The MXR Tom Morello Power 50 Overdrive is designed to capture the raw, hard-hitting sonic voice of Tom Morello's amp setup, which has been a key component of his signature tone for over 30 years. Whether you have a simple combo amp or a high-end custom stack, this pedal can be integrated into your rig to replicate Tom's big, gnarly tones.
The Power 50 Overdrive utilizes MOSFET technology to emulate the preamp stages of Tom's amplifier, providing amp-like performance that faithfully reproduces his signature distortion tones. With Gain, Bass, Middle, Treble, Volume, and Presence knobs, the pedal features the same control interface as Tom's amp, allowing you to replicate his exact settings or tailor the sound to your preferences.
One unique aspect of Tom's setup is running all his effects pedals through his amp's FX loop, which gives his signal chain a distinct tonal character. The Power 50 Overdrive includes its own FX loop, tapping into the raw signal-clipping point prior to the Presence control and custom tone-shaping at the output. This allows you to place the Cry Baby Tom Morello Wah in the loop for precise control over the wah tone and to achieve Tom's aggressive yet tonally balanced voice-like sweeps.
The FX loop also proves beneficial for live performances, as you can keep the Power 50 Overdrive engaged for your "always on" sound and run your pedal chain through the loop. This way, you won't have to adjust levels for different pedals every time you play at a different venue, as you can simply adjust the Power 50 Overdrive's interface to accommodate the acoustics of the venue.
By using the MXR Tom Morello Power 50 Overdrive, you can faithfully recreate one of the most iconic guitar tones of the modern rock 'n' roll era without the need to find a vintage amp and speaker cabinet from 1988. This pedal allows you to have Tom's signature sound on your pedalboard, regardless of your setup.
The MXR Tom Morello Power 50 Overdrive can be powered by one 9-volt battery (accessed via the battery door on the bottom plate), a 9-volt AC adapter like the Dunlop ECB003/ECB003EU, or an MXR Brick Series power supply.
