Machine Head Pedals / 72 Degrees Overdrive / 2010's / Gold Powder Coat / Effect Pedal For Sale
The MHP 72° is an OD pedal that seasoned guitar players of all stripes will appreciate. At minimum drive settings, it has all of the clarity and presence that you'd expect from a great OD. But it couples a glassy attack with a soft compression as the note decays, providing you with warm and carefully colored overdriven tones in the light to medium gain ranges. Fantastic balanced harmonic content, and tones that you'd swear are coming from your amp, and not a box on the floor!
While the MHP 72° is an absolute killer with single coils into clean tube amps, it's at home with crunchy amps and higher output pickups, too. Try one and experience it for yourself, and prepare to be pleasantly surprised! Completely wired by hand, with a handmade overbuilt circuitboard. Gold powdercoat finish.

Who And What We Are MHP is Keith Aviles. But the old saying that no man is an island is truly appropriate, as the "MHP Unofficial Roster" is so responsible in many ways for helping to ensure that the pedals and mods really perform, that you receive them quickly, and that there is no need to outsource (even locally), to ensure that Keith's ideas, vision, personal building style, and picky quality control process are never compromised. For this reason, the plural references in regards to MHP will stay as they are. Everything is done in house and entirely by hand, including drilling and powdercoating enclosures, 100% hand wiring, design and implementation of enclosure graphics, and even etching of the circuit boards.
Why Choose A Pedal From MHP? That is the big question, and can really only be answered by the individual guitarist. The needs of any two are rarely the same. And no amount of mass advertising and self touted credentials will ever truly communicate that, either. So we are counting on the "MHP Recipe" to make true believers out of you, if we have to do it one email at a time, one phone conversation at a time, one sale at a time. This recipe combines a knowledge of technology, design, production, creativity, research, and a true desire to communicate with you. There's a touch of bravado as well, as Keith is not one to simply replicate classic designs. Some unusual techniques are used to reach goals as well, along with a 21st century mindset.
...But what is obviously important is how MHP pedals sound and perform. You will most likely be pleasantly surprised. Very surprised. This is backed up by the "one week deal" with standard MHP hand built pedals.
