MXR pedals have been the industry leader in guitar effects pedals since the early 1970s. These pedals are on countless hit records spanning all musical styles. Super build quality and innovative sounds has made these the market leader.
The MXR Sugar Drive Pedal provides a diverse range of clear and transparent overdrive tones, from sauced up boosting to blown tube distortion. It is based on a rare Klon style overdrive pedal thanks to its unique circuit design.

The key elements of that circuit design are the Drive control and something called a voltage doubler. First, the Drive control on this pedal doesn't just increase the intensity of the overdrive pedal. It starts with your clean signal and then blends it with the overdrive effect as you turn it up, replicating the smooth transition of an amplifier going from clean to dirty. The voltage doubler increases overall headroom, which opens everything up nicely.

If you are into true bypass, then this pedal uses it by default. The original used buffered bypass, though, and we know there is a lot of players out there who do not want to fix something that is not broken. Then the Sugar drive has this option just flick the Buffer switch on the side of the pedal to enable buffered bypassing.

With a simple three knob setup and an MXR mini housing, this is the go to overdrive to have on your pedalboard. It's versatile and it saves space, and unlike the original pedals it's based on, it won't cost you an arm and a leg.
