Tom Morello Has A Signature MXR Overdrive Pedal Now

Rage Against The Machine guitarist (and solo artist, etc.) Tom Morello is giving you the keys to his crunchy tone with the brand new MXR Power 50 Overdrive.


The Power 50 Overdrive employs MOSFET technology to bring you the preamp stages of Morello’s amplifier, getting you as close to his tone as possible. The Power 50 Overdrive offers Gain, Bass, Middle, Treble, Volume, and Presence controls, and also features an FX loop to emulate Morello running all of his effects pedals through his amp’s FX loop.

“The Power 50 Overdrive emulates the amp setup that I’ve used since 1988,” said Morello. “I’ve made 21 studio albums, and that amp, that head, and that speaker, and that tone has been on 21 of them. It’s been my signature identifiable sound since Day One of my career.

“If you want to have the sound that has been on those records, you don’t need to find an amp and speaker cabinet from 1988. You can get that sound with the Power 50 Overdrive, no matter what your setup is.”

The Power 50 Overdrive is available here for $189.99.
