MXR Dookie Drive

It’s so popular that the MXR Dookie Drive pedal is never available for very long. If you’ve missed out on the previous two versions, make 2020 your year and get the fantastic version 3 MXR Dookie Drive DD25V3 – featuring unicorn graphic chassis.

Based on the iconic drive tones of Green Day’s seminal 1994 album Dookie, the Dookie Drive combines two flavours of overdrive to give you almost endless possibilities. The version 3 version of this pedal celebrates the 25th anniversary of Dookie, offering players the sounds from two of Billy Joe Armstrong’s favourite amps.

The Dookie Drive’s first overdrive sound is based on a scooped tone with high gain power. The second overdrive sound give you a mid-focussed sound for clarity and punch. Combine the two channels together with the blend dial and you’ll get the best of both worlds, with endless options for both lead and rhythm sounds.

MXR went to extremes to create these two sounds, borrowing Billy Joe’s own modded Marshall Plexi heads to capture his sound and make it available to everyone.

With its unique design and ever-popular overdrive circuits, we don’t imagine this pedal will be around for long. Make sure you get your order in soon!
