Home Recording Made Easy with the Guitar2USB Lead

When home recording is mentioned in conversations between musicians, microphones, mixers, Macs, tons of cables and complicated software often come to mind. All of these items are expensive and time consuming to set up for the guitarist who just wants to plug in and play without any hassle, so I was excited to be able to try a product that would make this long process simpler.

The MXR Custom Badass ‘78 Distortion pedal is the first in a line from MXR that is designed to roar like a huge stack as well as sound like a worn-in vintage tube amp. MXR claim to have hot-rodded this distortion pedal for over-the-top soaring leads and rich saturated rhythms. I think they succeed. This pedal packs quite a punch!

NAMM 2012, like most years, has failed to disappoint in unveiling new and exciting guitars and in my opinion Epiphone have produced this years must have guitar.
