MXR M80 dIST./dI BOX QUERY...

  1. Will this pedal do anything for me to use running into an amp,or is it really only any good if I NEED a direct box?

    Dozens. Most of them about the exact same thing.

    Not saying you should go read all of them, but if you want to know what the M80 will do, then that is well covered. Do you have a more specific question regarding your rig that might not be addressed in those other threads?
     
  4. That's really not
     
  5. Well, since that was "really not" maybe this will "really be".

    I use it often as a tone shaping tool/distortion box. I've actually only ever used it once as a DI box, and it wasn't even for my bass. I let my buddy use it for recording his guitar. Sounded awesome though.

    Anyway, it's a decent pedal. Tone shaping is good, the distortion cuts through in a mix and it has the added benefits of having a noise gate and a DI box.

    Try the search next time though, it's a wonderful feature.
