Dimebag Darrell’s MXR ZW-44 Zakk Wylde Overdrive

Dimebag used the MXR ZW-44 Zakk Wylde signature overdrive pedal extensively with Damageplan. It’s hard to find information online on when exactly this pedal came out, but it was likely sometime around 2000.

Most famously, Dimebag used this pedal during a demonstration of his effect in a short video recorded sometime in the early 2000s. He played a cover of Gary Moore’s “Still Got the Blues” to demonstrate the sustain that he gets from it.

It’s another overdrive. I grab it for sustain and stuff, you know.
