Product Description


MXR M280 Vintage Bass Octave

Bring the bass. Bring it bigger than ever before. Bring it now. The MXR M280 Vintage Bass Octave is the pedal you need to give unparalleled depth to your music. This magnificent sub-octave unit lets you drop one or two octaves down, meaning you can add a matchless, roaring bellow to your music.

Let your bass playing benefit from its richest tones ever. Don't settle for the weak, lightweight bass sound. The M280 will give you the power to make your thumping basslines be heard in any mix. There's even a volume boost for your clean signal, meaning your bass will always take center stage, even in the most crowded songs. Or use it to add low-end depth to your 6-string!

Extremely user-friendly

No one wants a pedal that's hard to use. You don't want to be encountering difficulty when you're trying to dial in your perfect effect-driven tones. MXR have made sure that the M280 is a simple-to-use bass octave, so you can find your ideal booming sound with ease. Basic controls for one octave down, two octaves down, and your dry signal make the unit perfect for use on stage when you need to alter your sound quickly and with simplicity.

Ideal for pedalboards

Slot the M280 Vintage Bass Octave onto even the most packed of pedalboards. Its small, compact size means it won't take up much room on your board, giving you the space to expand your collection further. Unbelievable power in a tiny unit.

Boost your sound

The M280 features a "Mid" switch, which lets you boost your mid-range tones. You can play with an extra six decibels, giving you more headroom to let your basslines soar. Ramp up your output even further by adjusting the pedal's internal trimpot, giving you up to a whopping 13dB boost. Unrestrained sound.
