Featuring an octave up switch, controls for output, tone, and distortion and rounded out with an eye-catching purple sparkle finish, the MXR La Machine is designed to run the gamut of vintage fuzz tones. Designed with circuitry emulating the designs of vintage pedals but built with modern appointments and standards, this effect works well in garage rock, psychedelia, or stoner metal.
