Two Styles of Epic Distortion for Your Bass Rig

When MXR decided to create an all-new M85 Bass Distortion pedal, they enlisted the help of Fuzzrocious Pedals founder Ryan Ratajski, one of the industry's premier authorities on grungy, dirty bass tone. The adventurous bass players at Sweetwater really dig their distortion effects, and this versatile stompbox is a real hit around here. For starters, the M85 gives you a choice between silicone diode or LED clipping, giving you a choice of seriously aggressive distortion or a more open distortion sound. But the distortion itself leaves your fundamental intact, so even without blending in much dry signal, you're left with intelligible tone. And if your highs start to get out of control, you can always tame them with the high-cut tone control.

MXR M85 Bass Distortion Effects Pedal Features:
  • A cool bass distortion co-designed with Fuzzrocious Pedals founder Ryan Ratajski
  • Two kinds of classic distortion (silicone diode or LED) in one pedal
  • Distortion affects only higher frequencies, leaving your fundamental full and punchy
  • Separate wet and dry level controls make it easy to dial in the perfect mix
  • Roll off unwanted harmonics and high-frequency overtones with the high cut filter
Get two killer bass distortion effects in the MXR M85 Bass Distortion stompbox!

I Have Only Started Using Bass Effects In The Last Year, SO, I'm Sort Of New To This. Amongst Several Pedals { Why Do They Call Them Peals?} I Purchased The MXR Distortion. First Off Let Me Say That I Use All My Effects,{ 10 And Counting} Subtly But YES !!!! I Have Found Them All Very Nice In Enhancing My Various Sounds. This Bass Distortion Is AWESOME With My MXR Overdrive. OVERALL If You Play Bass And Want To Use Effects, 3 Simple Letters MXR !!!!!!!
Music background: Played BIG In The 60s & 70's, Just Picke It Up Again After A 40 Year Hiatus !!
