Beef Up Your Bass Tone!

The MXR M89 Bass Overdrive pedal gives you the fat and gritty punch you want plus the control you need to make it work with the rest of your bass rig. Designed specifically to handle the added low frequency of your bass, the M89 Bass Overdrive just gets beefier the harder you hit in and will never get anemic the way a guitar overdrive pedal will. With a broad range of drive at your command, the M89 lets you dial in anything from a touch of grit to full-throttle fuzz. The Clean control lets you blend in as much clean sound as you like, allowing you to preserve your transients and fill out the bottom end. If you want punch, drive, grit, and control, then you'll be glad you grabbed an MXR M89 Bass Overdrive pedal from Sweetwater.

MXR OVERDRIVE!!

Great overdrive sounds right away!MXR has another great bass pedal. The drive is just enough w/o being in your face.I have the(other) yellow overdrive pedal and it has that ripping o/d that I grew to love ,but I think this one has just what I have been needing. Plenty of tweaking with CLEAN TONE & DRIVE controls.I'm using a Mesa tube head and they compliment each other.

Sooooo Pure!!

Warmest overdrive I've owned to date. Doesn't do the really heavy distortion stuff, but wow does that overdrive sound soooo pure!! The white LED is cool too, very distinct from my other pedals.

Amazing OD for feeding a tube amp

I tried out every Bass OD I could get my hands on and this was the CLEAR winner. The clean knob was the biggest reason, it allow you to dial in just the right amount of your clean tone, which in turn means a fantastic OD sound, without loosing your bottom end at all. I play mine through a custom hand made Class A tube amp, and digital pedals just don't cut it, they loose that warmth. This pedal however sounds and acts 100% analog.

MXR Does it again!!!

This pedal is one of the best overdrives I've tried. I've played MXR's Blowtorch and several other ones by numerous companies that didn't do it for me, but this one NAILS it. What I was going for was a Mel Schacher (Grand Funk) meets Jack Bruce (Cream) kind of sound. Totally over driven tubes and speakers yelling "help" sound. This pedal does it and more. I've also noticed you could use it along with an MXR Bass Fuzz Deluxe and get some really out of control distortion that is focused and perfect for a metal player. If you want subtle distortion to over the top uncontrolled amp blowing overdrive, this IS the pedal. I can sum it up in one word, "BAD***!!!"
