More about MXR

MXR, a renowned brand in the world of guitar effects, started in the early '70s when founders Keith Barr and Terry Sherwood began selling innovative pedals out of their car trunk. The company's commitment to creativity, reliability, and affordability quickly made it a popular choice among guitarists.

Barr and Sherwood, two audio repair shop owners, were driven by dissatisfaction with existing guitar effects. They created Phase 90, which quickly gained popularity, followed by other early successes like the Distortion +, Dyna Comp, and Blue Box Octave Fuzz. When Jim Dunlop acquired MXR in 1987, the brand continued to thrive, launching new pedals such as the Carbon Copy and Fullbore Metal, as well as a line of bass effects.

MXR pedals are known for their remarkable durability, as they were designed by professionals who understood the importance of reliable gear. Guitarists worldwide, including iconic artists like David Gilmour, Randy Rhoades, Eddie Van Halen, Joe Bonamassa and Marcus Miller, have embraced MXR's effects for their signature sounds. With a legacy of innovation and a growing lineup, MXR remains a driving force in the future of guitar effects technology.
