What makes it super?
The MB-1 is based on Muse frontman Matt Bellamy’s own cracked mirror M1D1 with a slightly longer body to make space for the X-Y MIDI control pad behind the bridge. This is set up to use with both Korg's KP-3 Kaoss Pad and DigiTech's Whammy pedal straight out of the box.
Plug into the Kaoss Pad and you can expect to treat, effect, filter and sample any sound that you can get the guitar to make. Hook up to a DigiTech Whammy and, by moving your finger from treble to bass side on the screen, your finger effectively ‘moves’ the pedal’s treadle, while tapping two fingers on the screen creates pitch effects you just can’t get with your foot alone. The Fernandes Sustainer pickup in the neck adds another fun, futuristic dimension.
