MXR bass dedicated pedals....

I just thought that, as the MXR/Dunlop importer, I would let people know what's available now for bass. Moderators, if this topic is inappropriate please delete. Most stores do not carry these as they are not high movers, being bass, but just ask your favourite store about them and they should get them in for you.
Dunlop... 105Q, bass wah with Q control.
MXR..... M182, bass fuzz. Think Pretty Things.
M188 bass auto Q, think Bootsy Collins!
M80 preamp/DI, MXR's version of the Sansamp.
M82 Bass Envelope Filter, More Bootsy and more booty.
M83 Bass Chorus Deluxe. Pino!
M84 Bass Fuzz Deluxe, bass fuzz on steroids.
M87 Bass Compressor, got a huge rap from the bass print magazines.
M89 Bass Overdrive. Think JJ Burnel!
M288 bass octave deluxe, tracks way lower than a guitar octaver.

These pedals are all dedicated to bass, and work by splitting the signal, letting one side through clean and one side effected, then joining them up. This retains the depth and integrity of the bass signal, unlike using guitar effects, which tend to lose the bottom end as a rule. Also, they are analogue, which tends to offer a warmer and fatter signal than digital.
