What Jim Dunlop say.....
Next up in the MXR Custom Badass line is the Modified Overdrive—a classic overdrive circuit with modern modifications for improved performance and versatility.
For added flexibility, we’ve added a 100HZ cut and boost control that allows for a more focused EQ when cut, or a beefier tone when boosted. The Bump switch engages an alternate EQ voicing that boosts the lows and mids. Put it in front of the '78 Custom Badass Distortion for a slew of amp-like gain structures that won't mask your tone.

“My tone has never been better, and I ain't just sayin that. That Badass Overdrive is THE BEST distortion tone I’ve ever had. Its amazing!” - Nashville session ace Chuck Ward.
