Dunlop made a big splash at this year’s winter NAMM show. Introducing some great stompboxes ranging from distortion, noise gate, chorus, and, of course, Zakk Wylde Phase. See four pedals below.

MXR Custom Badass ‘78 Distortion

The MXR Custom Badass ’78 Distortion roars with huge amp stack tones and old school distortion. We took a classic distortion circuit and hot-rodded it to deliver over-the-top soaring leads and rich, saturated rhythms. With only three knobs, dialing in a badass tone is a cinch. Engage the CRUNCH button to boost the harmonic content of the distortion. Under the hood, this high performance machine features top notch circuitry and hardware meant for a lifetime of use.

MXR Noise Clamp

Crank your stomp pedals to the extremes without the fear of any hiss or excess noise with the MXR Noise Clamp. By sensing your guitar’s dry signal, The Noise Clamp reduces the noise level within the it’s effect loop, coming down hard on even the noisiest signals. A single Trigger knob allows you to set the volume threshold at which the pedal is active, and a green LED shows whether the gate is on/off. This bad boy is capable of reducing Noise up to 26dB, maintaining riff definition at extreme gain levels.

MXR Analog Chorus

This all-analog pedal uses bucket-brigade circuitry to create classically lush, liquid textures that you just can’t get with digital circuitry. Rate, Level, and Depth controls, as well as knobs for cutting High and Low frequencies allow ultimate tone control. Like all MXR pedals, the M-234 comes in a heavy-duty housing with durable jacks and switches for a lifetime on the road.

MXR Wylde Phase

Zakk Wylde uses the Wylde Phase to add dimension and dynamics to his legendary blazing solos and razor sharp leads. Use the single Rate knob to adjust the Speed of the warm analog phasing, from a slow grind to a jack hammering pulse; or use it as Zakk does, at the 9 o’clock position for a slow burning sweep. Best heard on songs like “Overlord” and “Parade of the Dead.”
