I have gigged the MXR M80 DI in a variety of settings and scenarios: straight into front of house PA using regular onstage monitors, as a preamp into a Laney poweramp, as a distortion/eq into a Ampeg PF500 amp, straight into recording desk and a few more I can't remember..

I use it with a regular boss power supply, or occasionally with phantom power, but I have never used a battery.

This DI has never failed me, and is always with me on gigs as a backup. It has a very rugged design, and has withstood general handling and even a few nasty drops.

The distortion is really nice, with the blend control ensuring that you don't lose out on the low end - a problem quite common with bass distortion pedals.

It would be nice to have a parametric eq control on the mids, instead of the "colour" setting which I rarely, if ever, use.

The parallel output is a nice touch, allowing you to send your signal to the desk or PA and to also take another line out for headphones or similar monitoring.

The noise gate is quite good, filtering out unwanted artifacts whilst not playing (in between songs for example)

Overall, the MXR M80 DI is a great preamp and DI. Great value for money!

Great improvement
dnOleg, 26.06.2019
Since I got this thingy, all my other pedals are retired. I play punk rock music, mostly I use a pick but from time to time I use my fingers and this proved great in both applications. Also, it saved the day when I arrived to a festival gig and found out that the bass amp that was promised wasn't there - I simply plugged through this DI directly in the PA and the sound was perfect.
Sturdy, rugged casing is very reassuring, this looks like it will last forever. And if I ever manage to destroy it, I will purchase a new one, without a second thought.
So to summarize, great sound for a relatively small price - all pros, no cons.

Excellent DI BOX
20.01.2016
Great DI box, I use this exclusively for all my gigs. I use it with a Boss Tuner and send one signal from the DI to my amp, which I use as a monitor, and other other to the desk.

Activating the 'color' button really brings my bass to life, adjusting the Bass/Mid/Treble to suit means you can get a variety of tones out of the box. In large rooms I typically boost the Mid to about 2 o'clock, cut the Treble to 10/11 o'clock and leave the bass at 12 o'clock. I can then adjust my bass amp to compensate if I'm not happy with the on stage sound.

Phantom power can also be sent to the MXR from the desk which is very useful.

I don't use the distortion much but you can use it as a second channel without distortion by turning the distortion 'blend' completely down, could be useful for some volume amplification if you are slapping or tapping.

Best bass DI on the market!
Benni D., 03.10.2015
I've used one in the studio more times than I can count, but never owned one, it was always bassists bringing them in and swearing by them. I finally decided to buy an M80 when my Laney RB4 died. It was a bit depressing replacing a big 160 watt bass amp with a tiny metal box, but I am glad I did.

Simply put, the MXR M80 Bass DI Plus, is amazing. It sounds fantastic, and it's palette of bass tones is vast. Whether you want a massive boomy low end, or a scratchy mid and top focused bass sound, the M80 delivers it.

It's feature set is impressive. It has a colour switch which adds a rich thickness to the low end of the bass tones, a seperate distortion channel which can be mixed in (and also sounds great!), a noise gate, and 3 outputs!

If you're interested in buying a bass preamp / DI, look no further.
