I bought this pedal to add some aggressive overdrive to my bass rig, and was blown away by its range. Lately I've been leaving it on all the time for some more subtle drive with little presence. It performs both functions equally well. My favorite quirk about this pedal is that even if you have the drive cranked, you can play dynamically and the drive will tame down, then open up if you really dig into it. Super dynamic and versatile, this is the only overdrive you really need.
