Dating mxr pedal

Tends to be noisy if you push the EQ bands far, but that noise is relatively reduced when you raise the output gain.The Boss has no problem with very high-impedance signal, as well. MXR has two versions that both look good - a ten-band/two-output box and a six-band/one-output box.

The main limitation to such an approach is that the date of assembly of the complete pedal would necessarily lag the newest component date code, perhaps by 2-8 weeks.

Because the exact lag time is unknown, we decided not to include a "fudge factor" in our plot below: One caveat when using this plot is that when DOD rolled over from serial number 999999 to 1000000, the leading "1" was included in smaller text in the line above the rest of the serial number.

That might make a difference in where I place it and how I hook it up to the PA. 10DB boost switch, a treble control which the designer calls the dead string knob, and that's it. You can get a Red Eye twin, but you would need two. Attach it to a mic stand and everything would be at your fingertips. It has a boost so that eliminates that problem, I put a mute on mine and you could plug and unplug with a mute silently as you change instruments.

If it turns out that (a) it's not balance and (b) that means the TRS/XLR cable with it, I'll put it in front of the preamp, instead, either after the AB box to boost both instruments or before it to boost one. The Red Eye has only a volume for the boost and a treble control, doesn't need anything else as it sounds good with just a small tweek on the highs at the board, but doesn't need it on every sound system. The BBE pre is over the recommended input impedance from K&K. I have seen some pres that have 10M input impedance so the 2.2M on the BBE is better.

There is almost no way you are going to go into an EQ (basically a 10 frequency tone stack) and NOT color the sound. the MXR pedals are unbalanced in and optimized for the output of electric guitar. is is piezo optimized, or is it something that an electric bass would likely use. If it's not balanced, I'll put it in front of the DI and use a TRS/MXR cable. I don't know whether it's piezo-optimized, but since I don't use piezos and don't plan to, it doesn't matter. As I've said elsewhere on this thread, it's no Redeye. My favorite thing about is that it's heavy and doesn't bounce all over the place.

a DI should be balanced out and optimized to drive a PA. I've looked at the DI carefully and often and have gigged with it three times so far. The boost: Just tried a BBE Boosta Grande after the preamp.

For an effect, parametric or semi parametric is MUCH better. I use an active direct box optimized for piezo, with NO controls. the MXR pedals are unbalanced in and optimized for the output of electric guitar. is is piezo optimized, or is it something that an electric bass would likely use. People who've used both say they both do the same thing, but the BG gets slightly higher marks. If it were up to me, I'd just mic everything and be done with it.

Do some research and learn the difference and it will make more sense. a DI should be balanced out and optimized to drive a PA. There are some companies (TC electronics I think) that make a simple boost switch. And since my preamp is a BBE, it seemed to make sense to swing that way. But my bandmates (a trio and a six-piece) don't like miking instruments - and they have the PAs. The instruments: A folk guitar, a squareneck reso, a roundneck reso, and a mando. (Right now, the folk guitar has a soundhole single-coil pickup, the mando has a stick-on pickup, the squareneck has a K&K spider, and the roundneck has nada.

We had never seen a DOD FX-series pedal with a serial number between 117k and 200k, until Jeff Kehoe sent us photos of his FX25 (SN 118400).
