MBB (Marshall BluesBreaker Replica)
This is a Vintage Marshall BluesBreaker replica pedal project. All trademarks mentioned here belong to their owners and not to General Guitar Gadgets. This is the circuit for the original black unit from the 1980’s, not any of the later (thought to be inferior) versions. It’s a classic pedal and, as the name implies, a great tone for blues players.
