The MXR M82 Bass Envelope Filter delivers classic, analog, envelope filter sounds in an easy-to-use and compact pedal designed specifically for bass. Separate Dry and Effect controls let you dial in the perfect mix of effected and direct signals, so you can bring the funk without losing the low end. The envelope pedal's wide range of filter tones can be shaped with the Decay and Q controls, and a simple twist of the Sensitivity knob can tailor the effect pedal for your attack-as well as adjust for passive or active basses. The MXR M82 bass envelope pedal's power supply circuitry is designed to withstand over-voltage or polarity mishaps, and its true-bypass switching preserves your tone in bypass mode. It's all packaged in a durable, lightweight aluminum housing for the ultimate in portability and pedalboard space-saving dimensions.

I bought this today for $150, and it was worth every penny. I am not a pedal user at all, but this one is a HUGE exception. It gives you every possible funk tone all the way to techno tones and has an amazing bypass. There is nothing amazing that this pedal can't do. It looks cheaply made, but I bet if I chucked it against a wall, it wouldn't break at all! It was very well made, all the screws are tight, amazingly packaged. There is absolutely nothing bad about this pedal. I almost slept on it am almost didn't buy it, but I got the money and said screw it, and I would never go back. This pedal going through my Line 6 Lowdown 15 with a Squire P-Bass is like the sound of an angle. Buy Buy Buy!
This is one awesome effect pedal. My favorite aspect is its total versatility. I can use just a little wah in most band settings, or crank it up for some spacey funk. This thing really responds well to your own playing dynamics, with the sensitivity knob. And of course (most importantly), it retains the low end very well; you can still get booming lows and still have the wah effect layered on top.
This pedal works really well, mainly because of the amount of versatility it gives you. Having blend knobs for the wet and dry signals really helps for a bass player as one of our complaints was that it took away too much bottom. Much like the Q-tron and others, the pedal is very touch sensitive, so it has to be adjusted before each gig as it depends a lot on how you have your amp EQ set. All of the new pedals, including this one have quite a strong spike on the front edge... unlike the Boss T-wah, which didn't have that. The newer components don't sound the same, but, then, the T-Wah doesn't do nearly as much as this pedal. I'd say this one is the most versatile envelope filter I've tried. I'd recommend it as long as you don't mind adjusting it each time you play.
This is a good pedal to have in your arsenal, probably not a good first. I love the sound of this coupled with either a fuzz, bass octave (M288), ring mod, LPF, etc. The separate fx and dry blend knobs are key, especially if you want that filter wide open, just accentuating the upper frequency response with the Q down. This stomp box can be labled as a "one trick pony" because an envelope filter is a very distict sound. However I rarely turn the Q up past 25% and use it more as a treble booster that sounds "wet." For a live drum and bass act, making subltle changes to the sound of the bass is what its all about, at least for me. By itself I think it sounds like a great envelope, I just wish it had a sweep up/down select. There is an accurate video review on the M82 on Youtube by Uriah Duffy.
