  • Cool MXR Feature

    Have you ever noticed that the stripe on MXR knobs is glow-in-the-dark?

    I was bringing my gear in from the car yesterday and left my pedals sitting in the sun for a minute. When I got to the jam room, I saw the knobs glowing in the dim light. I suppose this could be very helpful when bright stage lights go off.

    I've been playing MXR pedals forever, but somehow I've never noticed this until recently.

        I'm still surprised that no one makes pedals with knobs that light up.

          I like the one on the new SD Vapor Trail.



          I discovered the MXR glow in the dark knobs a few years ago, and couldn't believe I'd never noticed it before.

              I am surprised no one has come up with a locking knob. Sort of pull up to adjust, and then push down to lock. You see guys with tape all over the knobs, and I always think there has to be a way to lock them.

                    or at least very nice level marks on all knobs - 1 through 10 kinda thing then smaller 0.5 ones. I like to write down settings and it's hard with some pedals that have like no markers. and the pedals with 5 knobs and no labels on them...ugh, don't get me started.

                        I have been playing MXR since 1980 and I never noticed it. Freaky.

                          I noticed that on my Micro Chorus when I had it. The 10 Band EQ also lights up. And I loved the Tone Lok Echo that I had. It sounded okay, but the locking knobs was amazing.

                          I also like the Ler LaLonde method of putting arrows on the pedals. When all of them are facing up, then you know you've dialed in the tone again.

                            A little glow-in-the-dark nail polish or model paint goes a long way...
