    Today i'm running into the city to hit up Rudy's for the MXR bass di, but like anythign i buy for my bass over 100 bucks, i'm already doubting if i need it (which i surely do...who doesn't need one more stomp box?) and it is killing me inside.

    words of encouragement would be realy appreciated. :help:

    I use it as an EQ for my passive J. Love it! The word about is, it's the box to bring if you don't know what gear they're going to have @ your gig site. Like the Sansamp I guess.

    Hope this helps you buy an eq pedal that is way better than the sansamp IMO

    See if you can play a gig with just the bass and the DI - no amp. If it works, it's worth the 100 bucks.

    Great little box- I use mine for pre-amp back up and distortion.

    yeah, so i wanted it for a gig tomorrow, figured i'd figure it out at practice tonight, so i've spent the past 2 days calling like every music store within 20 miles of me, no one carries/had it in stock. so i went into the city cause i've tried it at rudy's but it was gone, manny's almost had one, but their inventory was messed up, long story short, i was pissed off and just ordered it off musiciansfriend... and still no free shipping. but i had chipotle so that was cool. thanks :bag:

    hey man just a heads up but next time you should check out samedaymusic.com i think they're the same company as musicians friend but they ship out within 24 hours and ahve free shipping on almost everything i think with no minimum purchase. ive used them a couple times and had smooth experiences. they have the mxr di also

    that';s insane, is there a way for me to cancel my musician's friend order?
  12. I don't know about that but I did want to jump in and tell you that I take my pedal board including the M80 and plug into a PA once a week at a friends house and I get a great tone from my rig minus amp. I have dialed in my sound and now wish I could play through a PA all of the time.
