Didnt Last

Comments about MXR M-80 Bass Direct Box with Distortion:

At first when I got this I really thought I got a real high quality piece of equipment. It seemed well constructed and hard to break. The first thing that happened to me was when I was putting my first battery in, the cover broke right off the bat. Ok, I can live with it but that seemed pretty crappy considering the amount I paid for this pedal. Ive had it about two years now and it recently burnt out on me. So that indicated to me that these things are not built to last. And the repair, now that my warranty is up, is nearly half of what I paid for for this item. Im a big fan of MXR products but I was pretty dissatisfied this the quality of the M-80. As far as sound, it is right up there with the higher grade stuff but I would recommend shelling out the funds for the Sansamp...

killer

Comments about MXR M-80 Bass Direct Box with Distortion:

Before I got the M-80, my whole rig was having problems. I'm a big fan slapping, but I also love a warm sound walking my fingers, so when I dialed in a warm sound, my slap sound was awful, and vice versa. When I got the M-80, I could go from a warm sound from my amp, to a killer slap sound with the press of a switch, and with more tweaking I found that I could get both without having to switch it. The distortion is good for for that cliff sound, and it's pretty good for a Claypool sound too. Bottom line: Buy this, it will make your sound 100 times better, I promise.

fine...but...

Comments about MXR M-80 Bass Direct Box with Distortion:

The box is fine if using on the stage. You don't need any amps with this d.i. playing live. On the other hand, don't consider plugging it to an amp. You will get a huge low-end sound that you wouldn't prefer playing live. The main problem is the distortion. Unfortunately it's extremely difficult to level the sounds of clean and distortion and I don't think the distortion effects that much. I'd rather buy a separate pedal.But generally if you are playing live on stage,you have to have one.
