Surprising box

cue.big, 06.01.2016
Whether the M69 now the 80s sound is, I do not know and was for me with the order also not decisive. I stand on analog signal paths, in any case before the amp, and had on my board still bissl place. My evaluation is not oriented at the price of a product ("for the price really good ..."), but solely on the question, whether it sounds good or not. The M69 had to prove alongside significantly more expensive colleagues such as Baldinger Dual Drive and Okko Diablo as well as Dominator. Tested in front of a clean Fender Blues Deluxe and a clean Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, each with a Fender USA Standard Strat HSS.

Decisive for keeping the crate is a very good dynamic behavior in the above setup. And the pedal already has a bit of a "own" sound, it is neither the (felt) 300th clone of the green treble nor immitates it convulsively another pedal or even a certain amp. So it stings to my feeling something from the Mass in this price class. The described positive properties I calculate the analog signal path.

Stylistically, I use it on the one hand for crunchy solo sounds and on the other as an alternative for full chords such as Fly Away from the Kravitz. The whole in the classical rock area.

Processing is MXR-typical. Pretty tough. The tone control is completely sufficient for my needs. Well, the LED is in terms of brightness to my taste somewhat weak on the chest.

I would not go so far that I prefer or even equate this pedal to the Baldinger or the Okkos, but I appreciate it because it simply has a slightly different sound color and a dynamic in the price class. Whether the exact 80s sound is, I leave times adjusted.

Great overdrive

31.05.2016
A great overdrive pedal, it does not get high gain distortions but I did not buy it for that. It has a punchy sound and perfect for the rhythmic Mötley Crüe style and other groups of the time, and also serves as a boost if you want to give a boost to your amp. Like all MXR pedals, rugged and made of quality materials. And all this at a very tight price. The best you can find for that price. Note: I like the sound more simply than with humbuckers, but this is a matter of taste.
As always Thomann of the most efficient, I made the order and in 4 days I had it in Spain, a 10.
