MXR Joe Bonamassa FET Driver

Editor Brands, General News, MXR

The MXR Custom Shop FET Driver is available now in the UK!

Featuring a unique circuit design, the MXR Custom Shop Joe Bonamassa FET Driver captures the rich, creamy sound of an overdriven tube amplifier by cascading an op-amp gain stage into a FET stage. Step on the FET Driver to thicken up your lead tone with musical, amp-like distortion and sustain without the fragility and inconsistency associated with tubes.

The FET Driver features a simple but responsive set of controls. Set your volume level with the Output control, and then use the Drive control to dial in the grit, from subtle soft-clipping to early stage distortion. Fine tune the FET Driver’s sound by tweaking Hi and Lo boost/cut controls, and push the Hi Cut switch to roll off high end frequencies when playing in high volume situations where excess noise is apparent.

“This pedal glued the loose ends of my rig together,” Joe says. “It’s very focused and very fat, and it cuts through without being too bright. That’s a hard sound to achieve.”
