The ODB-3 Bass Overdrive Pedal will give your bass a wide variety of distortions.

Tailored specifically for the frequencies of a bass guitar, the ODB-3 can provide you with a wide range of overdriven sounds from a light overdrive all the way to chest-resonating distortion. The 2-band EQ allows you to shape the bass' distortion tone to your liking, and the balance and gain control knobs enable you to dial in the desired amount of distortion without compromising the dry bass sound. By mixing the effected sound with the bass signal you will always get great sounding distortion while maintaining all the power and presence of the regular expansive bass sound. For already overdriven bass amps, the ODB-3 can also be used as a gain booster.

The ODB-3 is a great overdrive pedal for hard rock, thrash and punk bassists.

    Comments about Boss ODB-3 Bass OverDrive Bass Effects Pedal:

    i bought this pedal used at the local samash store
    just to experiment with and i got to say i found it very usefull, if you play hard rock or metal this is a must have, sure there's more choices out there but in my opinion this pedal is pretty good., it doesn't suck up my tone in any way and its true what the other guy said, u can use it as a boost pedal too, i keep my on the crunchy side
    anyways i'm glad i bought this pedal.
    PS:one person says this pedal eat batteries like crazy well " MOST PEDALS WILL EAT YOUR 9 VOLT IF YOU USE IT FOR MORE THAN 4 HOURS STRAIGHT" if u have a pedal board u got to have a power supply for your pedals.. (im just saying)

            Comments about Boss ODB-3 Bass OverDrive Bass Effects Pedal:

            I got this mainly out of desire rather than necessity and I didn't keep it very long. It was fun to tinker with but for me it wasn't what I was looking for. I like a high gain distortion and I couldn't adjust my amp, bass and pedal enough to get a sound that I liked. The slightest movement on the strings would make that screaching sound. The low gain sounded muddy and drained my tone. I liked it for the fun factor but I couldn't use it with my band. I'll recommend it because the majority of people like it.

              Comments about Boss ODB-3 Bass OverDrive Bass Effects Pedal:

              This is an amazing pedal, definately the best (for Bass) from Boss. It keeps the basically unaltered low-end while crunching the highs, Great for rock and metal. You can also just use it as a booster for a Bass solo. You can change the OD/distortion from a normal Bass with some grit on top all the way to a tuned down Bass-less guitar, and everywhere in between. Mine doesn't eat up batteries like the other person said. And the light tells you when the batteries are low by getting dimmer and dimmer.

                Comments about Boss ODB-3 Bass OverDrive Bass Effects Pedal:

                "This pedal was very good for me in most circumstances, it gets a good crunchy tone which can be varied pretty well with enough messing around. Unfortunately it sucks up batteries like crazy, using this pedal for any prolonged period of time will completely kill the batteries. However it's still very sturdy, gets a good tone and is bright yellow. If yoou have the money to pay for all the 9 volts you're gonna need go for it, otherwise I still recomend it, but only in moderation"

                I have had this pedal for about 4 months and i love it. I have got it set to a crunchy overdriven booster. My bass teacher set to sound like a Big Muff. This is a great pedal over all. [...] Buy this pedal.
