Me neither. I liked the demos, seems about as transparent as possible. Cant wait to test it out.
Mxr 10 band can be handy,but you will notice some coloration of your original tone even with the sliders neutral.I run it into the front of the 1987.I think my old tried and true sd-1 might be my all time fav clean boost.Set the level way up and bring the gain almost all the way down.But the mxr can be handy if you want to add or subtract from a certain frquency.
So should I place the Jim Dunlop MXR MC-401 before or after my pedals? Before meaning after my tuner and wah but before my OD, chorus, reverb and pitchfork or after all of them, last pedal on the board?
Try it first and last, they are both noticeably different if you use other pedals. I have my Underdrive first, but I'm cutting, youre gonna be boosting I presume so put it last, you should try cutting and boosting with it to see what you like best.
It all depends on what pedals are before and after it, you gotta try it all over the place.
Sounds like a plan..thanks!
Err... That demo was no demo!
All cut scene "YOOOUF" appealing graphics and sound manipulation.
There was no actual evidence of a signal chain. How do you know the "sound" of the MXR wasn't enhanced by some means in a mixing desk? Not a real world demo at all.
I'm not saying that it can't do what they claim, but do not go off just that promo vid alone.
I also looked at several other demos along with many reviews from players that have bought it, it was all good. I never go on just a couple reviews or demos.
I think my local store has one in stock, I hope I have time to go there today and can borrow it during the evening, otherwise I will do it tomorrow and comeback to you with my conclusions
That would be excellent and much appreciated Tce63!! Thanks
@MarshallDog, have you had any experience of the MXR M133 Micro Amp?
One has just come up second hand at my LGS.
Unfortunately no! My MC 401 arrived today but I had no time to test it out...errr!
I was at the shop this afternoon , but the pedal was sold, sorry to say
Bummer!! Oh well hopefully Ill have time to hook mine up and test it tonight?! Thanks Anyway!
Tested her out a bit. Sounds great! It does not color the tone at all until you get up past 3/4 boost and then it is ever sooo slight which I guess would make sense due to the added input volume. Any coloration it does add at those boost volumes is a really nice not thin, not thick just beautiful colloration IMO and could also be used at those boost levels as a nice tone additional pedal IMO. Right now I have it set about 65/75%.
I tested in the front and at the end of the pedal chain and I didn't really notice a big difference so I THINK I am putting right after the tuner and wah just for easy mounting and so I can get at it easily with my right foot which is my stronger pedal foot seeing as I think I will be using this baby a lot for solo boost and so it will boost any and all signals throughout the pedal chain equally.
Looking forward to that in your next live video!
I find the purpose for adding an equalizer is to color what you have at present. If you did not need colorization then you would not require the EQ. The EQ can add or subtract. There is no loosing.
If I decide to keep on playing and expanding I might even invest in a programmable multi-EQ situation. You change presets/program and bam, everything is equalized appropriately.
I’m trying to sell a boss RV6 to get a mxr eq. Prefer a newer one but local offered to trade me an older vintage 80’s one. Anyone have any experience with the older blue ones?
Mine is the newer grey one but Derek S here on the forum, thought mine was the vintage blue one, so apparently they are keepers.
I have no personal experience with the vintage ones!
I’m trying like hell to sell this reverb pedal with no luck!
I'd buy it.
But I'm in the UK. Shipping would double the cost!
