The MF5 Modern Fusion is a pretty bizarre slant on the Tube Screamer. The Ibanez marketing guys pretended that it would get you an instant "Fusion" tone with a soft and sustaining distortion. To be honest, it sounds pretty appalling on a clean setting but use it to push an overdriven amp and it becomes one of the best fuzz pedals ever: very fat, distorted and creamy while managing to remain dynamic.
