I bought this pedal about 3 years ago and it is definitely one of the best bass overdrives I ever used. it was the first darkglass pedal I ever owned and I simply love it. this pedal has a warm tube-emulated overdrive sound that works well with many genres. including hard rock and heavy metal. with the era control, this pedal can go from a 70s rock bass sound to a 90s metal bass sound. it works well with passive and active basses and it sounds incredible in a band mix. it's good for recording and live performances. if you're looking for a good bass overdrive pedal, definitely check this pedal out.
