Dunlop: MXR ZW44 Zakk Wylde Overdrive Pedal

Price paid: $ 89.99

Purchased from: Guitar Center

Sound — 10
The sound is the best I've ever gotten from a distorion pedal and you arn't limited to sounding like Zakk with the right adjustment I sounded alot like Page and Vai. The pedal was made for the enhancement of Marshalls which is the amp on which this pedal sounds best on.

Overall Impression — 8
I have been playing classic rock for four years and this distortion goes great with my Marshall. It is the best distortion pedal I have ever used. I highly recomend buying it.

Reliability & Durability — 8
I would defenently use this because distortion pedals were ment to last and this one defenently does. I'd use it with a backup, defenentely.

Ease of Use — 8
This has to be the simplest way to get a great sound out of a distortion pedal. It's as simple as walking over to the box and stomping on it and when the light is red then let it rip with awesome Zakk sound. Wylde has a good sound but I prefer Rhodes. Either way easy way to get great sound.
