Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Not bad"

MXR M182 El Grande Bass Fuzz
Very robust case.
Volume control, tone, fuzz and a boost switch gravesappelé of "Deep".
The latter has a selectable frequency between 85 and 110Hz, thanks to a small switch inside the box.


conventional pedal.


This is generally a good Fuzz with character and especially a broad sound palette.
When you do not push the Fuzz, the sound is very warm.

I do not push against by the latter setting, where I find the sound too synthetic and compressed removing a lot of definition.


I'm quite a fan of this Fuzz brings me what I was looking for sounds slightly filthy stoner.
Its a very warm and good sound palette with Tone and Boost.

MXR M182 El Grande Bass Fuzz
Features already stated before. Simple enough, it's a very well made pedal, very solid, very compact size and connectivity standard for this type of pedal (input and output jack and plug for 9v industry)


Setup is fairly easy although it will take some practice to master the beast! the manual is clear though useless so the settings are natural and standard.


The sound is terrible and sounds very natural. The Fuzz is really wild so you have to tame it before  you can have fun with it. Otherwise it quickly becomes anything you want. It's super easy to get  low feedback  with the Fuzz engaged. Personally, I play with the Fuzz knob bottom or zero, but between the two, it looks like the pedal really hard (with a Stingray has a large volume as most active basses) When I play with my Ibanez which is passive, I can play with the Fuzz knob while not a huge influence on the sound. The tone is quite effective, I usually put 1 / 3 of its travel for a deep desert / stoner rock volume, bah is a volume, we will adjust the volume of his bass at all. A small lot is combined to trigger the deepswitch and tone up the last third of his race to keep the depth but also a few slam but it causes more waste and a sound faster feedback. The best is still to test the pedal to get an idea! I compared it to a big muff bass (same config bass / amp) the big muff is still more accurate but less character. It sounds really soft next to the MXR is a real pocket rocket!


I use the MXR Bass Fuzz for the past few months and I am really happy. It's really what I wanted to play in my group of desert rock.

The bass is really preserved and guitarists do not cover me when I'm Fuzz. I miss him more than just a good overdrive slamming and bright lines for more metal. But for fans of stoner, it's just the foot of hell!

I would do this choice a thousand times! But as I said, it can quickly go on a lollipop So, prudence on the set if it ensured the cacophony!
