ESP MM-04 is a preamp booster that was originally custom designed for Alexi Laiho to his own specifications, and has since become an essential part of his trademark cutting edge guitar tone.
This sound is now available to all guitarists by joint development of the ESP Guitar Company and Musamaailma, ESP’s exclusive distributor in Alexi’s native Finland.

The boost level is controllable by adjusting the trimmer pot. Boost range is +4.5dB minimum and +18dB at the maximum setting. You can choose 7 different treble EQ presets by adjusting the 4 dip switches.
