MXR M-80 Bass D.I.+ distortion/preamp

Discussion in 'For Sale: Effects and Pedals' started by c-ba55, Nov 28, 2010.

  1. Incredibly useful pedal / pre-amp. It is nominally a distortion pedal for bass. The nice thing about it is it has both a gain control and a blend knob to mix your clean signal back in. Between these two, you can really control the amount of grit. Also, it has a 3-band EQ, so you can shape the tone quite a bit. Some other nice features are a noise gate, a D.I. (so you can actually run straight to the PA using nothing but this - can even work off phantom power from the board). Comes in original box with manual.
    The distortion sound itself is a real crisp / crunchy / spanky one at low gain, and goes up to crazy overload fuzz (but can still keep the bass underneath).
    Another nice thing is you can turn on the distortion separate from engaging the pedal, so you can use the clean channel as an EQ shift and/or volume boost (it also has volume knobs for the clean and dirty, so you can equalize your dry/pre-amp only/distortion volumes or set up a boost)
    Also has parallel (clean) output so you can do intricate things with your signal chain if you want.
