MXR M89 Bass Overdrive Now Shipping

April 9, 2013
Put some snarl into your bass tone with the MXR Bass Overdrive, the latest offering from the award-winning MXR Bass Innovations team. This stompbox delivers warm, harmonically rich overdrive while keeping your low end deep and focused.

Dialing in a big and burly sound with the Bass Overdrive’s four controls is fast and simple. Use the Clean control to blend in a clean signal tuned to bring out the organic richness of the overdrive across the tonal spectrum. Crank the Drive control for an aggressive, cut-through-the-mix sound, or dial it back for a subtle growl to use like a second channel. The Tone control only affects the overdrive signal, and the Volume control sets the pedal’s overall output level.

The MXR Bass Overdrive comes housed in a sturdy, lightweight housing and features true bypass switching.
