MXR M108S

Summary

Not all pedals provide you with the exact tone that you're looking for. If you want to find the perfect tone, you need to have the variability to help find the balance within unique frequencies. The MXR M108S is an EQ pedal with ten bands that offers a cut or boost of 12 dB in either direction. That's sufficient to give you the amount of control you need to find the perfect combination.


When you need to switch the high frequencies up and stand out individually, it's helpful. The tone can also be scooped to add a lot of bass and treble to the sound while leaving out the mid-range frequencies. Or, keep the bass and treble low, if you want to turn heads, while allowing the mid-range sound to shine through.

The MXR M108S features real bypass circuitry, which allows you to ensure that in some way the signal is not thinned out or impeded. The Low Noise Circuitry also does not add to the sound any unnecessary ring or buzz, allowing the normal or distorted tone to come through the way you want it.

Driven indicators on the faders allow you to quickly see what's happening. You'll be able to see exactly where all of your faders lie in a row, even when it's dark, and you can see, as well as hear, the changes you make in your modifications. It can be difficult to see just what's going on in the dark stages. The LED indicators shed a light on the situation, enabling you to easily and confidently make changes.

The aluminum housing is used to keep all of the pedal's "guts" secure. Aluminum is relatively lightweight as well. The MXR Ten Band EQ pedal isn't the smallest pedal on the board, but it may be one of the most versatile ones. In combination with all the other effects on the board, it works.

It is powered by batteries and AC for portability and convenience. You can put it in your outlet if you're at home, and if you're on the road, the battery will be sufficient for your output. However, do make sure you've got backups.

For finding the right frequencies for your voice, this is an excellent pedal. For any musician who is plugging into effects pedals, or who wants a bit of tuning, it is suitable. It doesn't come with presents, so on the go, you need to change the tweaks. However, it's very easy to find out where you need to make changes to give you the sound you need, once you've used the EQ a few times.

Pros

+ EQ ten-band
+ Tough casing of aluminum
Cut/boost of + 12dB
+ Relatively lightweight
+ Clean Bypass Signal

Cons

- Not extremely lightweight
- No presetting

Why We Like It

Where other pedals can't quite finish the tonal tweaking work, the MXR M108S gives you the leverage you need. Getting the ability to find the high and low-level frequencies you need brings to your tone a lot of flexibility and helps you to find the exact sound you are searching for.

The LED indicators make it easy to say where things are and add a good aesthetic to the pedal in any setting. You can find that it is very robust and reliable when you pick it up. However, it's not the kind of pedal you want to kick with distortion or stomp pedals the way you do.

The MXR is very cheap, which means that if you are searching for your first EQ pedal, it is the best way to go. It's not unbelievably difficult to find out and helps you to be accurate, as well as flexible, with your tone. It is acceptable for several kinds of tools, or for channeling a combination that requires an overall overhaul.

You could benefit from the consistency and tonal flexibility that the MXR Ten Band EQ pedal can offer you, whether you're just beginning your music endeavor, or you're a seasoned vet.
