Without a doubt, one of the most popular bands of the 90's and 2000's has been Green Day. The album that put Green Day on the map, Dookie is now getting its own signature stompbox.
MXR revealed the "Dookie Drive" at NAMM. Here's what MXR had to say about the pedal:
-To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Dookie, we’re releasing the MXR Dookie Drive. It captures the sound of both of Billie Joe’s amps in a single pedal so that you can dial in your own variations of that famous Dookie sound. We borrowed the amps themselves so that the MXR team could carefully analyze all the sonic qualities that make them sound so darn good. After much analysis and A/B testing, our engineers rebuilt the amps from scratch in pedal circuit form and fit them into a single housing. The High Gain and Clean Gain sections each have their own controls, while the Blend control allows you to mix them together just like Green Day did in the studio. If you want some extra scoop in the midrange of the overall output signal, just hit the Scoop switch.
-The Dookie Drive isn’t just for Green Day fans—this totally unique pedal provides a full harmonic range of overdriven tones for a playing experience that is full of depth and dimension.
I'm sure this pedal is going to be sougth after by tons of punk rock fans. The street price clocks in at just under 200 bucks.
