Overview

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of ‘Dookie’ by Green Day, Billie Joe Armstrong has collaborated with MXR to capture the iconic sound of the seminal album in one pedal board friendly unit.

The sound of an era

The MXR Dookie Drive captures the sound of the album that propelled Green Day and punk rock into the mainstream, effectively recreating the sound of Billie Joe Armstrong’s amp which is widely believed to have been two heavily modified amplifiers, one being a modded Marshall Plexi 1959SLP reissue that he had affectionately nicknamed ‘Pete’.

According to the team at Dunlop, the classic Dookie tone was achieved by “running his signal through two heavily modified amplifiers—one scooped with a ton of gain and the other with a well-defined and articulate midrange. When it came time to mix the record, the band blended the two signals together in different ratios to match the vibe of each track.”

With this in mind, the team at MXR borrowed and analysed the two different amplifiers and rebuilt them from the ground up in pedal circuit form and placed them into a single housing, adorning the pedal with the classic Dookie artwork. This resulted in a lively pedal with a full harmonic range for an overdriven sound that is full of depth and dimension.

Total control over your sound

The MXR Dookie Drive pedal provides that signature Billie Joe Armstrong sound, but also allows you to sculpt it to your needs thanks to the fact both the High Gain and Clean Gain sections both have independent controls. The Blend control allows you to blend the two just like Green Day did when recording Dookie. In addition, you can also scoop out the midrange from the output signal by hitting the Scoop switch.
