MXR M116 Fullbore MetalPublished on 02/07/10 at 20:09
The MXR M-116 Fullbore Metal is a distortion pedal designed for use with electric guitar. The pedal is made up of analog parts, with standard 1/4" connections and 9 volt power requirements. The pedal is built extremely well and sturdy, and isn't rackable as it is stomp box.

UTILIZATION

While the MXR M-116 Fullbore Metal definitely has more parameters to work with than your average distortion or overdrive pedal, this is still a very simple pedal to use. The pedal has parameters for volume, gain, low, mid, and high, as well as one to set the frequency for the mid gain. In addition, it also has buttons for gate and 'scoop' which will cut out the mid frequencies. I didn't find that...…

UTILIZATION

While the MXR M-116 Fullbore Metal definitely has more parameters to work with than your average distortion or overdrive pedal, this is still a very simple pedal to use. The pedal has parameters for volume, gain, low, mid, and high, as well as one to set the frequency for the mid gain. In addition, it also has buttons for gate and 'scoop' which will cut out the mid frequencies. I didn't find that using the pedal was hard at all, so I don't believe that you need a manual to use it.

SOUND QUALITY

Like the name hints, the MXR M-116 Fullbore Metal is definitely a high gain distortion pedal, offering up a lot of thickness and a ton of gain. While I will say that you can use it beyond just the genre of metal, it will definitely work best within this confine. I've used the pedal with a Fender Telecaster and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb, which has no built in distortion or overdrive. I get a pretty good idea of what this pedal sounds like within this configuration, and the main thing that I want to get across is that this pedal really gives you a thick distortion sound, with endless amounts of gain!

OVERALL OPINION

MXR wouldn't be the company that I would think of if I was going to buy a 'metal' oriented distortion pedal, but they have definitely done a nice job here with the M-116. While I don't play too much hard rock or metal, this is certainly suitable for other genres in situations where you would want some heavy, high gain distortion. MXR is a company that I trust to make high quality pedals, and this one is certainly reasonably priced at around $100 USD. I wouldn't necessarily recommend this to everyone, but if you're looking for a super high gain distortion pedal, definitely at least give this one a try.

OVERALL OPINION

about 1 year

What thing do you like most and least?
the scoop

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
mt2, ds2, Tubeman 2 and other distortion Ina ....

How would you rate the quality / price?
departing a little tank because I wanted THE big sound via the scoop "on" but not impossible to have (too death / black), in the end I am delivered and I have "exploded" the medium (yes I am 10) to have a nice bump and a cozy well with my vai sound. it is clear, precise cutting on a mesa recto say (hey I'm plugged into the clean of a peavey Rockmaster preamp with mxr distortion and go out on guitar rigg with a pair of speakers jbl lsr 2300 monitoring it helps ^^ ) day I frankly all I want and I love this potato straighter and net it gives me the 2 mt seems bland next to, opposite the al Rondat LNA allows me to put me in a register more rock " satrianesque "qand I want to do" simple "

With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Yes twice that a meme, although the noise gate serve me anything (I have a decimator upstream) I find it frankly more interesting than its sister the mt2 that it actually remains bland and "muscle" next to. my config allowed to think that I will play on a true mesa head if I unveiled my not "secret", a very nice surprise when trying to do simple and effective, is more than a test with JP50 to see the grain and rendering with crunch lab and LiquiFire.


great stuff if you have what it takes upstream!

o damn!!!

then it is a distortion; this there is a noise gate and included a boost.
this is pure analog and hard.

editable: What????

classic pedal jack in, out and power supply

UTILIZATION

So as they all say it does not like extremes. No knob thoroughly this is the only thing to know her. Otherwise there is a demonic distortion playing around with.

A manual or ca? But as soon as it is really useful for this type of pedal.

SOUND QUALITY

Effective, responsive and realistic enough? GRAVE!!!!!!

So I use it with my lag Arkane (micro DiMarzio Super Distortion)

And watch Vantage (upgrade with a seymour duncan distortion Mayem kit)

Hard to find things that I do not like it....…

Hard to find things that I do not like it. After the knobs to the background sound becomes very runny thus avoided.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had a month and I just do without. MXR is good.

Yes eyes closed I would do the same choice.

Bluffing ...

Type Metal distortion pedal (no kidding)

Small, light, with a scoop (which boost here and compresses the sound advantageously) and a noise gate
It is analog and short, it has 6 knobs: Volume, Frequency, Gain, Low, Medium, High

What I was looking, comprehensive, compact and simple.

UTILIZATION

The manual ... But what manual?

If we know what are the knobs and if we know that we must open the pedal to adjust the noisegate (not practice) bah now ... Ya just plug in!

But takes a little practice to find exactly THE sound.

The noisegate're really breaks sweets set, but when it's done you come back more. Activation as well as the boost can not be foot ... Being a guy with...…

But takes a little practice to find exactly THE sound.

The noisegate're really breaks sweets set, but when it's done you come back more. Activation as well as the boost can not be foot ... Being a guy with fingers princess I can push it ... But some of my friends with their socks not successful ... End brief c is very small!

I take off points for that but it is not so disturbing that ...

SOUND QUALITY

So there nano 1 cm rotation not change a lot of things ... The pedal has a tendency to sound synthetic active if not boost the mids and if you put at noon. Acute bleeding, contrast ... But no panic! A little fiddling we get to a balanced palm mutes its huge ... And that is my foot. The sound may be warm while keeping the edge and dynamism

All distos from punk to death are in this tiny box, the settings are infinite, the pedal a huge gain ... So be sure you like the radical distos!

I use it with a Peavey Bandit 112 and an Ibanez RGA32 ... And wow ... It's broke! I tried the dark matter, the metal muff, the mt2 ... And the MXR outperforms all. Because you can find a specific sound, balanced while all other synthetic sound (especially mt2, which is heavier).

This pedal is the sharp metal distos Swiss Army knife.

OVERALL OPINION

I for one and a half years.
Above I could find a sound I was looking and I found nowhere else despite tested models mentioned above.

A 90 € go for it ... She really is. I have no regrets, everything I asked her she did (except cappuccino but ... I have tried).

If you try it do not stop at the first impression is that of coldness when we begin to understand we rediscovered! So for your test, try and explore long, I highly recommend to lovers of big sound!
