Here at Andertons, we were all unanimous in agreeing that the MXR Dookie Drive was, undoubtedly, the coolest pedal released in 2019. Maybe we're all a bunch of Green Day fanboys, but it just looked and sounded awesome! A year later, and MXR has unveiled the Dookie Drive V2, featuring special edition artwork that contrasts the most explosive element of the Dookie album cover with a brushed aluminium casting - for a look that’s sleek yet rugged.
Billie Joe Armstrong achieved his Dookie guitar tone by using two modded Marshall amps; one that was set with high-gain and a scooped mid-range, while the other was tweaked to sound cleaner and more punchy. The Dookie sound was ultimately achieved by combining the two, and this MXR pedal harnesses the character of both amps while allowing you to determine how much of each is heard - via the thoughtful 'Blend' control.
