Tried several other 'names' to improve my sound, some more expensive, and some cheaper. Although this is not the cheapest, it ROCKS !

This is some powerfull piece of kit. Took a coupla days to find my way around it, but it is the best deal going for $ value. Easy to read knobs on dark stage. Incredible boost and distortion, light, small, and TOUGH built. One note of caution, the damn thing EATS batterys, so get yourself a mains converter for about $19

I tried the Sansamp D.I. pedal which I thought sounded great but it has a compressor(which I cant stand on my live rig) and you cant turn it off and you cant adjust it(BIG MINUS!). Then I tried this pedal with its clean channel and distortion, found it is just a freeking MONSTER!!! I dont really use the D.I. but I LOVE the distortion and sustain are beautiful, quality and totally lives up to the Dunlop MXR heritage, a great addition. Built like a tank this thing WILL survive a full nuke strike(or equally devastating; a good and liquored-up drmmr). Buttons and knobs are sturdy and unlike the Sansamp it has a mid control(BIG PLUS) and a noise gate which is essential if your pushing the distortion. In a world of multi-programmable/multi-effect/multi-patch/multi-parameter/diameter nightmares, this little box is the epitome of Keep It Simple Stupid! 10mins straight outta the box and with a little tweaking this thing will ROAR!!!

I liked both of my SansAmp Bass Driver DIs. But I always struggled with the EQ. They had great sound, but the mids were kind of scooped and there was no real way to get them back. I sold them and decided to look for dirt elsewhere. This led me to falling in love with the Source Audio Multiwave. It's just incredible and I'm still in love with it...but the one thing I struggled with IT about was getting a simple overdriven rock sound. That led me to researching other analog dirt pedals, preferably ones with a good EQ and possibly a DI.

I looked at the Aguilar Tone Hammer, the Darkglass B7K, the Hartke Bass Attack and the Tech 21 VT Bass. Here's what's what.

The Tone Hammer is nice, but it's pricey and the overdrive sounds flatulent to me. The Darkglass sounds great, but is far too expensive. The Hartke Bass Attack is a remarkable bargain and sounds great, too. The VT Bass may be the true winner in terms of rock tones, but it's expensive especially when you consider it has no DI.

Then there's the MXR M80. Better dirt than the Tone Hammer. Smaller and built more solidly than the Hartke. Priced far lower than most of the others. And it has a flexible EQ and a quality DI.

Put simply: it's the best bang for your buck if you're looking for an overdriven rock sound in your DI.

Caveat: I strongly recommend doing some research on youtube with good headphones on. There are demos of each of these units if you search for them. It'll let you know if you like the dirt flavor or not.

Not much to say really... other than the pedal does what MXR claims it to do. I Like it!

Built Like a tank and nice finish!

The two channels are nice and the distortion can be thin to fat and grungy.

It will also sightly fatten your tone with or without distortion.

Only note of warning is it does sound differently on various amps. I did use it on an
SWR 550X and it did not sound as good as it does on my Traynor Dyna Bass 800H. It also
sound great on the Bugera BVP5500 and MarkBass LMT 800.

I bought this DI box and EQ/Distortion pedal because I often play through unfamiliar and older amps when I travel by air to venues. This box allows me to emulate the two channels I have on my Aguilar head at home by providing clean and distorted channels. Including the Bypass option, I have three sounds accessible by footswitch.

When playing through an amp with no DI, this gives me the option to DI into the board rather than mic the amp. All the EQ, color and noise gate controls work as advertised. This box allows me to pack light and know I will get the sound I want regardless of the amp or bass (active or passive) that I will use at the venue (we usually rent rather than ship equipment).

One note: If you use effects they have to be connected ahead of this pedal otherwise they will not be available via the DI to the board. To round out my travel kit I use a Boss TU-3 Chromatic Pedal Tuner which allows me to mute while tuning, a MXR Bass Envelope Filter Effect Pedal and an old Digitech Chorus.

1 Si buscas un super hierro para tocar en vivo este mismo es.

2 El pre amp es mas que excelente para mi jazz bass pasivo. Y el botón de color da un sonido espectacular

3 La distorsión es bien pesada, ideal para música fuerte, aunque la puedes manipular a tu gusto con el botón de blend y gain.

4 Por ese precio no consigues nada asi de bueno. mas barato que un sansamp y con funciones adicionales como el control de medios.

1 if you want play live this is the pedal

2 pre amp is perfect for my pasive jazz bass

3 the price is incredible, cheaper than sansamp and you get beter functions like mid control

4 distortion is very powerfull, perfect for metal music

5 sorry for my bad english. I hope to help you with this review.
