MXR M251 FOD Overdrive Pedal

The Sounds of Two High-Octane Amps Combined in a Single Stompbox!

Written by

Elliot Stent

MXR is renowned for its gain pedals that can transform dull-sounding amps into flourishing fire-breathers! Their FOD Drive, however, goes one step further by supplying the overdriven power of two high-octane amp stacks - all from one compact stompbox.

For decades, fastidious tone-chasers have combined amplifiers in order to create thick, textured and harmonically-rich tones on-stage and in the studio. Thanks to MXR’s award-winning team of engineers, the FOD Drive lets you imitate a glorious blended amp sound right from your pedalboard!

Glorious Doubled-Up Drive

MXR's FOD Drive is based on a pair of heavily-customised amplifiers adored in the industry. The brand pulled these amps apart to see exactly which components help in forming their signature sounds, which MXR has painstakingly analysed for the design of their FOD Drive.

While one of the amps was modified to achieve scooped high-gain saturation, the other was tweaked to deliver a punchy mid-range crunch. Together, they create a gritty distortion sound filled to the brim with rich harmonic content and hair-raising aggression. MXR's FOD Drive makes it possible to experience what it's like playing through these two ripping amp stacks!

Tweak to Perfection

The MXR FOD Overdrive's 'Blend' control enables you to set the mix ratio of the two signals, which is just like having two separate amps running into a mixing box. The 'Tone' knob sets the EQ for the overall output signal, and the 'Scoop' switch allows you to choose between flat, scooped or boosted mid-range voices.
