Product Description

Featuring a simple three-knob setup and an MXR mini housing, the M294 Sugar Drive is the overdrive pedal to bring out the best of your rig and make it come alive. It’s versatile and it saves space, and unlike the original pedals it’s based on, it won’t cost you thousands of dollars.

MXR M294 Sugar Drive Pedal Features
  • Brings out the best of your guitar and amp sound
  • Based on a rare & elusive overdrive circuit
  • Diverse range of tones, from boosting to overdrive
  • Blends in clean signal to maintain your guitar’s personality
  • Buffer switch toggles between true & buffered bypass switching
  • Clear & transparent performance
  • Increased headroom for dynamic, wide open sound 
The MXR Sugar Drive is for players who love the sonic synergy of their guitar and amplifier but want even more of that sound. You spent years chasing it, and now you need a way to make it more focused and more robust. A way to make it that much sweeter. Look no further than the Sugar Drive.

It’s based on a rare pedal that has acquired a mythical reputation among fanatical tone-seekers thanks to its unique circuit design. Key elements of that design are its Drive control and voltage doubler. The Drive control replicates the smooth transition of an amplifier going from clean to dirty by blending the overdrive effect with your clean signal as you turn it up. The voltage doubler increases overall headroom, which opens everything up nicely for a clear and transparent range of tones that you can dial in depending on what you need from your rig, from uncolored boosting to rich, smooth overdrive.

Of course, we had to give this circuit the MXR touch. If you’re all about true bypass, then you’re in luck—this pedal uses it by default. The original used buffered bypass, though, and we know there’s a lot of players out there who don’t want to fix something that isn’t broken. They’re in luck, too—just flick the Buffer switch on the side of the pedal to enable buffered bypassing.

Excellent little pedal!

Product Review

I'm stoked! It's so tiny! This is an incredibly useful pedal for its size and price. Its perfectly capable of many overdrive tones, from a little breakup to a crisp, yet smooth vintage style overdrive. I use it as a boost pedal mostly, just to add some sparkle and volume to my solos. It puts you right there where you want to be in the mix. Buy it, it's worth it! I've put it through some pretty heavy use on stage, so far so good with a nice quiet switch and no extra noise.
