Product Description

The Whirlwind Gold Box Distortion pedal is a classic handwired tank of a box that delivers a wide range of sonic distortions. The Gold Box distortion pedal of the Rochester series provides distortions from a subtle warm tube driven tone to a balls-to-the-wall searing hot overdrive with that vintage sustain and classic tone you grew up with.

"As one of the original founders of MXR, I first brought these effects pedals to guitarists almost 40 years ago. They were the ones that started a revolution and no one has made them quite the same since . . . hand-wired, American made, built to last forever and with the exact same circuits and quality components.

It's the way we did it back then and it's the way we've approached everything we've done since. With this new line of vintage pedals, the ONLY things we changed are the addition of true-bypass, a 9 Volt power inlet and an LED to indicate when they're active.

To celebrate 40 years in rock-n-roll, we're proud to release the Rochester Series pedals. You're gonna love 'em."

- Michael Laiacona, President and owner of Whirlwind
