Product Description for the MXR M80 Bass Direct Box with Distortion

The Bass D.I.+ features a D.I., separate clean and distortion channels, an array of controls to fine-tune your sound, an a noise gate trigger control to eliminate hum and hiss.

Finally, all the essentials in one tough little box. You need a serious D.I. for playing live and laying down killer tracks. You've got to have a preamp and finely tuned EQ to add punch to your tones. And you definitely can't do without some rich, custom distortion. This one-of-a-kind pedal gives you the whole deal in a bomb-proof enclosure that will survive even the most out of control gigs-and players. Built with the highest quality components, the M-80 can give you eve everything from warmth and transparency to a volcanic roar, without making you scroll through menu screens or an indecipherable manual. Engage the color switch for some sweet preset EQ, then tweak your tone with three band control. Dial in your ideal distortion with the gain knob and blend just the right amount into your clean signal, then kick it on and off at will. The adjustable noise gate pours on the sustain and cuts out hum and hiss. With XLR and parallel 1/4 outputs and a phantom power switch, you'll never have a problem delivering your choice new tones.



  • An incredibly flexible Bass D.I.+, Clean and Distortion effects
  • Run direct to the PA or straight to the mixing board for pure tone
  • A smart “noise gate” and optimized EQ help you find the sweetspot in the mix!


  • Set all controls to their middle position and set switches to their off position (all LEDs unlit).
  • Run a cable from your bass to the Input jack of the Bass D.I.and run another cable from the Bass D.I.+ Output jack to your amplifier.
  • To use the D.I. (Direct Input) function, run a balanced line (microphone cable) from the Bass D.I.+ Direct Output to your mixing board or PA input.
  • Turn on the Bass D.I.+ Clean channel effect by depressing the Effect footswitch (Effect LED lit).
  • Adjust the Clean Volume to the desired level, such as to match or boost your bypassed, effect off signal.
  • Push in the Color switch to engage a clean preset EQ designed to color your bass tone with added punch, definition and clarity.
  • Depress the Distortion footswitch to engage the Distortion channel (Distortion LED lit).
  • Use the Gain control to set the amount of distortion, the Blend control to set a mix between the clean preset EQ and distortion effects, and Volume control to set the distortion channel’s output level.
  • Push in the Gate switch to activate the adjustable noise gate with Smart Gate technology. Set the Trigger knob threshold low (counter-clockwise) to kill hum and hiss from the distortion signal while sustaining desired signals without premature, audible cutoff. To create a dynamic distortion effect, set the Trigger to higher (clockwise) Trigger threshold settings so that the gate only opens during loud passages. The Gate’s yellow status LED turns off when the gate is opened and on when the gate is closed.
  • Use the Bass, Mid and Treble controls to shape Clean and Distortion effect tones.
  • The Parallel Output can be used to connect to a tuner or any other parallel processing device.
  • The Bass D.I.+ can be phantompowered through its Direct Output jack from a phantom powercapable mixing console. Push the Phantom/Ground switch to its down position to enable phantom power or up position to ground lift the Direct Output connection and remove noisy ground loops.
