Dunlop has released the first installment in a series of MXR Legacy mini documentaries commemorating MXR’s 40th anniversary. This first installment chronicles the story of one of MXR’s first employees, Ron Wilkerson.
"This year, MXR is celebrating 40 years of innovation with a series of mini documentary videos covering its history as well as the personal stories of the lives and music it affected.
This first installment helps paint a fuller picture of the beginnings of MXR as a young upstart company started in a New York basement through the stories of one of the first employees, Ron Wilkerson. In a few short years Ron went from being a struggling club musician just out of college to traveling the world selling MXR pedals and being the instrumental force in creating the look and identity for a brand that has become one of the most iconic in music gear history.”
