MXR

MXR, also known as MXR Innovations, was a manufacturer of guitar effects units, co-founded in 1973 by Keith Barr (who went on to found Alesis) Michael Laiacona (who went on to found Whirlwind USA) and Terry Sherwood (who went on to co-found Applied Research & Technology). MXR is famous for their MXR dyna comp, phase 45, phase 90, distortion + and carbon copy guitar pedals. The MXR trademark is now owned by Jim Dunlop, which continues to produce the original effects units along with new additions to the line.
