About this deal

That said, the M-133 is a pretty flat sounding transistorized boost pedal, though it doesn't have the tubey sparkle of a ZVex SHO or any other jfet or mosfet based booster. Andertons Music Company acts as a credit broker and not a lender and only offers credit products from Secure Trust Bank PLC trading as V12 Retail Finance. My first exposure to it came when I was given an original MXR Micro Amp by my brother at the beginning of the ‘80s and it became a foundational part of my rig. if you were to get just one pedal, this is the one i'd recommend, its simple, its incredibly diverse in its use, and the quality is a cut above all my other pedals.

With a new project just started which sits on the heavier side of rock I realised a need for a final clean boost. While I initially pursued it for a couple of particular applications, it soon became clear that this is one of those devices that is extremely useful and flexible and can come in handy for hundreds of small but vital applications.You’ll notice more character and overtones in your sound because the amp is generating even-number harmonics in the soft zone of distortion. The MXR M-133 Micro Amp is a simple, streamlined pedal designed to add a preset amount of gain to your signal using one single control. Por otro lado al final de la cadena de gain podemos hacer un increible boost en incremento de volumen.

Also if you're playing a solo it gives you a little bit of volume without adding gain, in case you put it after the gain pedals. The MXR M133 Micro Amp is an effects box that lets you boost your signal using a single control knob. Subjetivamente hablando es fantástico y objetivamente hablando no se queda atrás para nada ya que es realmente bueno y útil. I’ve come across a guitar tool that can accomplish a whole bunch of jobs for a small amount of coin and I thought I should let you know about it. Strangely, at the time, there weren’t that many alternatives to the Micro Amp other than from the Electro‑Harmonix Linear Power Booster (LPB).e., humbucker to single coils), or it can supply a permanent boost in a long effects chain where signal drop-off is a problem. It boosts the hell out of my signal making for a great, simple, clean change in volume and when pushed hard it even creates a nice overdrive sound. Por si fuera poco al tener control de agudos y graves puedes boostear estas frecuencias y engordar muchisimo el sonido para leads muy pesados, muy útil para shoegaze para mi gusto. If, like me, you often like to play solos on a vintage spec strat or tele into a an old-school tube amp with moderate amounts of preamp gain, a clean boost like this is an invaluable tool while recording.

That roll-off was there whether the pedal was switched in or out because it lived in the buffer amp and the pedal wasn’t a true bypass design. the MXR Innovations Micro Amp is a clean boost pre‑amplifier providing up to a significant 26dB of signal gain. One of my first tests for the pedal was to plug it up with a Deluxe and back off an ES-335's volume control to see how it reacted. The principle of the MXR Micro Amp (model MX‑133) is to (over)drive the input stage of an amplifier without overly colouring the tone, thereby obviating the need for a tone control. A secondary function, per the manufacturer, is to slam the front end of a tube amplifier with extra volume to create even more saturated gain sounds than an amp is capable of producing on its own.I use it more as an 'always on' pedal for tone enhancement at which it excels (as opposed to increasing gain for more preamp drive). You can boost your signal for leads, use it to tweak your signal for two different guitars with unmatched output, for example a Strat and a Les Paul, or use it for a constant boost for smaller amps aswell as in a long effects chain where signal drop causes problems.
