Anyone tried the MXR MX-81 Bass Preamp?
« on: August 30, 2020, 09:57:15 PM »

Has anyone tried the MXR MX-81 Bass Preamp with a Rhodes stage piano?

On paper and in the movies, this unit looks pretty good:  2.2MΩ input impedance, *sweepable* midrange EQ, treble EQ at 4KHz instead of 12KHz, a little bit of gain, convenient power options (9V battery, wall-wart, or phantom), 1/4" and XLR DI output.

The only two bad things about it are the blue LED and the pricetag.

Has anybody seen one in person and played with it?
