It’s been a while since I posted deals from Amazon, but I actually found a decent one today. It’s on the Jim Dunlop MC401 MXR Boost / Line Driver. This is the line driver developed by MXR and Custom Audio Electronics (Bob Bradshaw). If you’re looking for a clean boost for leads or to crush the preamp section of your tube amp or to drive pedals, this might be a great purchase. The MXR MC401 lists for $169.74, and is usually available for $100, but is currently on sale for $79.92 at Amazon. That’s saving $20 off the going rate for this pedal. This pedal also ships FREE with super saver shipping.
Here is the official description of the MXR MC401 Boost / Line Driver:
MXR and Custom Audio Electronics founder Bob Bradshaw – two names that have shaped the tones of the world’s greatest guitarists – join forces to bring you a dynamic new line of pedals. The Boost/Overdrive and Boost pedals are the first offerings in the series produced by MXR, featuring the unique sonic stamp of legendary designer Bob Bradshaw. Since 1980, CAE’s innovative pedal designs were made in limited quantities only for his select clientele. When it was time to bring these pedals to the masses, there was only one name he could trust to deliver the same quality and standards that his customers demand – MXR. Available only from Dunlop Manufacturing, Inc., the world’s leader in analog pedal technology. MC-401 Boost/Line Driver The MC-401 is simple in design but superbly effective in solving a variety of mis-matched line level and signal conditioning problems that can occur when combining effects. The MC-401’s circuit design has been used for years by CAE in the world’s best guitarist’s rigs to remedy these problems and rejuvenate the sparkle, punch and brilliance that can be lost. It can also be used as an ultra-clean boost for solos or to drive effects for more dynamics and sensitivity.
