Go direct, sound great!
The MXR M-80 Bass Direct Box with Distortion is more than just a direct box. It's got so many features, you may wonder how you ever did without it! It includes a distortion channel with gain, volume, and blend controls; a noise gate to help keep it clean; a Color control; and 3-band EQ control that lets you dial in any tone you need. It also provides phantom power, and sports a parallel output jack for flexibility in routing. Whether you like it sweet and clean or hot and nasty, this DI does it all!
with a 3 band EQ, gate-able distortion channel, adjustable clean volume with a 'color' switch, can be used as a DI, in-line, or both with a phantom and ground switch... a price of 150$ is MORE than reasonable for this pedal.
This has been in my arsenal for 10 years, and has been the most badass pedal I have ever had. Durable as a tank, and full of features, I always tell bassists they need this pedal.
For about seven years now this pedal has been the base of my bass sound. Excellent tone, very easy to set, nice equalization, lots of different possibilities and great performanace with any amp. Also to gate and distorted channel are very usefull. Nowadays I use the distorted channel only as a clean boost, since I have a dedicated distortion pedal on my board. Must have for any bassist.
For my bass guitar. Includes EQ, distortion, and noise gate. I try not to pile many extra effects on this just to keep the bass sound simple and consistent, bus sometimes I will add a little reverb or chorus.
