Fender MTG LA Tube Distortion Pedal
Few things are as satisfying as the real-deal distortion sound of glowing glass. Yep, vacuum tubes are responsible for the tones you fell in love with. The Fender MTG LA is a tube distortion pedal based around a genuine, U.S.-made NOS 6205 preamp tube. Tone, Bass, Treble and Tight controls make it easy to shape your sound, while the distinctly Fender footswitchable Boost adds Volume, Gain or both to make your solos stand out.
Designed by our in-house team of experts, the MTG:LA® Tube Distortion is an all-original Fender circuit. The chassis is crafted from lightweight, durable anodized aluminum, and the Amp Jewel LED gives your pedalboard the classic Fender look. The switchable LED-backlit knobs show your control settings on a dark stage at a glance.

The heart of the MTG: LA is a genuine vacuum tube. In this case you’ll find a NOS (New Old Stock) 6205 preamp tube.
The secondary footswitch can be configured to add extra volume or gain, so you can give your sound a kick in the ass when you need it!
Not only does the EQ section sport Tone, Bass and Treble controls, but it also has a Tight control so you can contour the low end to taste.
The Boost has its own Level and Gain controls. Level controls the master output level when the Boost circuit is engaged, while the Gain control affects how much gain is introduced.
The MTG:LA uses a typical 9V center-negative power supply, making it easy to integrate into any rig. Internally, a switch-mode power supply converts the incoming 9 volts to 55 volts. It then applies that higher voltage to the tube’s plate, so it behaves just like an amplifier.
Crafted from lightweight, durable anodized aluminum, every Fender effects pedal includes switchable LED-illuminated controls.
