    Pros and Cons of each. I've looked at some reviews but would like to hear it from a few more of you!

    I really love my MXR M80. The distortion is killer and it's an awesome preamp. The big muff is really loud but overall I think the m80 is way more versitile.

    Thanks for your input! I'm looking at some new distortion pedals and would like to get one with a built in noise gate

    M80 for me.
    Owning both, the versatility offered by the two extra channels given by the mxr is the winner for me

    Not sure whether I am a fan of the di out on the dbbm yet

    I own the M80 and the standard Bass big Muff pi. They give me different, useful sounds - if you can afford to, get them both!

    Thank you all for your input it is much appreciated! Wish I had money for both right now but I may have to wait to add the Big Muff later on.

    I own both, versatility + great distortion and tone then mxr di not the mention it can be used all the time. For sheer distortion/fuzz and a great heavy dirty sound then big muff. Both will be awesome together
