MXR M80 Bass DI Plus

Bass Di Plus

The Bass D.I. + combines all the requirements a modern bass player has in a DI box in one device. A preamplifier and a specially designed EQ make a start and a switchable distortion with faders and a switchable gate as well as XLR and 6.3mm outputs complete the picture.

I have gigged the MXR M80 DI in a variety of settings and scenarios: straight into front of house PA using regular onstage monitors, as a preamp into a Laney poweramp, as a distortion/eq into a Ampeg PF500 amp, straight into recording desk and a few more I can't remember..

I use it with a regular boss power supply, or occasionally with phantom power, but I have never used a battery.

This DI has never failed me, and is always with me on gigs as a backup. It has a very rugged design, and has withstood general handling and even a few nasty drops.

The distortion is really nice, with the blend control ensuring that you don't lose out on the low end - a problem quite common with bass distortion pedals.

It would be nice to have a parametric eq control on the mids, instead of the "colour" setting which I rarely, if ever, use.

The parallel output is a nice touch, allowing you to send your signal to the desk or PA and to also take another line out for headphones or similar monitoring.

The noise gate is quite good, filtering out unwanted artifacts whilst not playing (in between songs for example)

Overall, the MXR M80 DI is a great preamp and DI. Great value for money!

Great improvement
dnOleg, 26.06.2019
Since I got this thingy, all my other pedals are retired. I play punk rock music, mostly I use a pick but from time to time I use my fingers and this proved great in both applications. Also, it saved the day when I arrived to a festival gig and found out that the bass amp that was promised wasn't there - I simply plugged through this DI directly in the PA and the sound was perfect.
Sturdy, rugged casing is very reassuring, this looks like it will last forever. And if I ever manage to destroy it, I will purchase a new one, without a second thought.
So to summarize, great sound for a relatively small price - all pros, no cons.
