MXR Custom Shop CSP-210 Sub Machine


The MXR Custom Shop Sub Machine is an octave fuzz pedal similar to the MXR La Machine but includes a new sub octave control. Select octave up from either a foot switch or smaller button, and roll in a sub octave using one of the four knobs on the front of the pedal; just roll the sub control up and you will gradually introduce a sub effect into your signal giving you a much larger sound. Choose if you want the sub effect in series or parallel, meaning you can decide if it runs alongside the fuzz so you have a clean octave below, or set it to enter the effect, allowing for a normal sound plus an octave above and below with a fuzz effect.

The MXR Custom Shop Sub Machine Fuzz kicks open the door to epic and unbridled sonic exploration. This mean little box combines the shaggy vintage tones of the La Machine Fuzz with a growling sub octave circuit, giving you a one way ticket to the sonic frontiers of heavy.

The Sub Machine Fuzz features the La Machine Fuzz’s circuitry and all of its functions, from its Volume, Tone, and Fuzz controls to its electrifying octave up mode. The MXR Custom Shop team upped the ante by adding an old school sub octave circuit with its own level control, so you can dial in just the right mix of fuzz and sub octave signals.

To further broaden the Sub Machine Fuzz’s thunderous tonal palette, the Custom Shop team added a Series switch so you can run the sub octave signal straight into the fuzz for subterranean saturation, or alongside the fuzz for a split channel effect.

The Sub Machine Fuzz features true bypass switching and comes in a sturdy, road-ready housing with components to match.
