tc electronic MojoMojo

Guitar Effects

With the new generation of pedals and a plethora of digital gems, the tradition of good, old-fashioned analogue sounds is still preserved.

The Mojomojo is an overdrive that offers its own approach. Primarily intended for giving tube amps the desired touch "more", the Mojomojo is characterised by its unusual simultaneous combination of clarity and little compression. This means that the sound remains clear and dynamic, even when the amp is really made to sweat. In this sense, it is more like a good old tweed amp than a TS-type pedal. It is the perfect match for many blues players, but also for rockers who, despite a desire for substantial distortion, have no intention of producing a flat-ironed carpet of sound. An additional bass control (treble/tone is standard) prevents the thinning that is a well-known trait of green-coloured overdrives (which many also enjoy). Nice: turn down the volume control on your guitar, and the sound clears up as with a good amp.

MojoMojo: good overdrive pedal
Stephen6150, 18.07.2015
I use this pedal with a lap steel guitar and with my Tele and Strat. As the lap steel has a P90 pickup, and the Fenders obviously have single coils, I can't comment on how well this pedal suits instruments equipped with humbuckers.

The pedal is true by-pass, well-built and well-finished. The case is aluminium. The battery compartment is accessible by undoing a screw with the side of a coin, which is handy if you don't have a screwdriver to hand (but obviously not as handy as a Boss-type spring loaded compartment). The pedal can also be operated with any 9V (negative centre) mains adapter.

There are four knobs - drive, level, bass and treble - whose function is self-explanatory. They all offer a good range of adjustability. It's useful to have separate treble and bass controls instead of a single tone knob. In addition, there is a two-position mini-toggle switch to adjust the pedal's bass response.

How does is it sound? Well, if, like me, you dislike heavily distorted guitars, the MojoMojo offers a good level of overdrive that is not over-the-top. I play my lap steel through a transistor bass guitar amp with a 15-inch speaker, and the pedal allows me to add an appealing raunchiness when play blues riffs in Open E. My Strat and Tele go into a Vox AC15, and this pedal adds a great lead sound to the jangly tone of the latter amp. The pedal's bass response is good, although the mini-toggle switch is fairly subtle in its effect.

In conclusion, this is a good overdrive pedal, and excellent value for money, if you want an overdriven sound rather than heavy distortion. In my view, it is ideal for playing solos on single coil guitars while preserving the basic tone of those guitars.

Jack of all trades
Trey, 04.04.2020
Got this pedal after being a long time fan of Paul Gilbert, but was I surprised at its capabilities. To break it down:

I intended to use it mainly as an EQ/preamp almost at the start of my signal chain, to beef up the sound when needed, much like Gilbert does. After getting the pedal, I got to work with it for a few months and it has proven itself a real jack of all trades. Be it as boost, an od, bordering a distortion or simply an eq curving tool it was great.

Clarity-wise it can go from all out thick roaring sound, rich in low mids, to trasperent frequency boosting best for heating or melting a tube amp's front end. It could help to think of Godzilla by Racer X as its easy playground, when put in-front of a slightly cranked British amp. Riffs and leads alike can be worked out with this one.

Now one can not really fault anything at it at this price point. While the price would suggest poor construction it is totally NOT true. It is built like a tank, great casing, great switch.

To sum up, buy it. It is surely at a price point that it wont break the bank, and it will surprise you with its potential. In case mine got stolen or ever broke down, I would certainly replace it.

Competent but not my thing!
Dazmatron, 08.04.2020
This is an overdrive pedal that provides smooth but grainy, lower-mid boosted light driven tones. I'ts like a tube screamer with the mid boost but without the clarity at the top. I love the idea of a bass control on a pedal. However I found this not very responsive. I could not hear what the voice switch did either!! This pedal is for small amounts of drive - it will not go near distortion and will provide 75% of gain a tube screamer will. I found it boxy sounding but others might like it!

Pros:
- Price
- Brand
- Build Quality
- Very usable

Cons
- Voice switch inaudible
- Not versatile - small gain range
- Bass knob needs a lot of tweaking to engage

Mr Gilbert loves it and now me too... This pedal does exactly what it have to do, a reach and fat overdriven tone into a very solid metal case. For a fraction of the price the mojomojo destroys all the overdrive I've used in the past. Absolutely spot on!
