    I'm selling my MXR MicroAmp that I've had for a little over a Month. It's like new, and will come in the original box with all of the manuals etc. (see pic). I used it on a couple of gigs, but left it on all of the time (with a passive bass), so the switch has probably been clicked less than 10 times. It works just fine, but I found I would like a boost pedal that provides some tonal shaping as well. This pedal puts out what you put in, only louder.

    The price is $55 shipped firm (in ConUS).

    I'll accept payment via PayPal or a USPS Money Order.

    The best way to contact me is probably with a TalkBass Private Message.

    Thanks for your interest! :)

    it's true bypass isn't it Slater?

    And one more....when the gain/knob is at it's lowest setting (almost off)...does the tone sound distorted or grinding at all?

    Reason I ask...I've used a Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster, works the same as the Micro but when it's clicked on, at it's lowest setting, it still sounds like it puts a little "dirt" into the tone as opposed to simply boosting the clean signal.

    The pedal in not true bypass. However, I didn't notice any change in tone or signal loss with the pedal in the off position. The Micro Amp and my Boss tuner were the only pedals I had in my signal path, and when I was on a gig with my passive P-Bass, I had the Micro Amp on all the time.

    Also, IME with the Micro Amp, the pedal provided a clean, tonally unchanged boost no matter where the level knob was set. The Micro Amp will overdrive your amplifier's preamp if the level is cranked.

    I've had a little experience with the SD pickup booster, and it seems that it was designed to "fatten-up" single-coil pickups, rather than just provide a clean boost. That may be why it put a little "dirt" into your tone at lower levels...

    Thanks for your interest, and the pedal is still available...
