    Selling my MXR M85 Bass Distortion. Light wear, works perfectly. This pedal was designed in collaboration with Ryan Ratajski from Fuzzrocious.
    I liked this pedal so much I went and got a Rat King from the man himself and now this guy isn't seeing much playtime.

    Pedal is in pretty good shape almost mint. I had it in my pedal board so there's some light paint scratches, and has a little leftover adhesive from the double loop velcro. Which can be taken off with a little alcohol and a little elbow grease.
    Comes in original packaging and all paperwork.

    Price is $90 with shipping included within the continental US only.
    PayPay Preferred.

    Wanted to give you guys a flavor of how this pedal sounds in case you've been on the fence about it.

    So on this tone test I start with the bass clean (Rickenbacker 4003S), then I add a little grind with the M85, and then it goes into a more fuzzed out grindy tone with the clipping diode set to Silicon, and finally same fuzzed out grindy setting but with the clipping set to LED. And this is still not pushing the pedal to all it's gain. But I dialed tones I digged and would use with it. It can also get some pretty nice Doom-esque dark tones if I set it to the Rick's neck pickup and adjust the tone on the pedal.

    NOTE: I recorded this through my HX Stop using their Ampeg SVT+B-15 emulations with some custom IR's.
