  • decent pedal

    As reviewed by mhrobinson87 on 10/31/2006

    have owned this product for almost 5 years and have had a love/hate relationship with this pedal. I remember first getting it to recreate dirty punk/metal sounds like so many other people that have written customer reviews. At the time I purchased this I was very enthralled with it and couldn't get enough of using it in it's appropriate setting. But I suppose you can say, people outgrow certain sounds, yeah? The description on this pedal claims that it doesn't take away from the presence of your sound, but as time passed, I realized how empty the distortion sound. Instead of providing a thick foundation at the bottom, I found myself fulfilling more of a second guitar role. Eventually, I felt like my bass didn't sound like a bass at all. Gradually, I wanted to stop doing extremely dirty sounds and go to just a little bit of drive and a boost in tone. All I wanted was thick, full tone that was just a little on the rough side. I found that very hard to do even with the balance and gain controls. MF and Boss also advertise this pedal to be used as a 2 band EQ, but it didn't really help or boost my sound. I do love the features of this pedal though, for such a cheap price I love all the control I get. But what are all the options if you can't really get a good sound out of it either way? I think you would have to have decent equipment to make this pedal sound great but usually if you can afford that, you would be buying a more expensive overdrive unit. If you already have good equipment, this pedal, like many inexpensive pedals, will have a negative effect on your sound. For people with budget equipment, there are better products out there for just a little bit more that are a much better investment seeing as they enhance your sound a lot more. In fact, I don't know why everybody just doesn't save up for the Tech 21 Sansamp Bass Driver DI. I have more recently moved onto the Tech 21 Sansamp PSA 1.1 which (for $600) gives me not only all the overdrive/distortion sounds I want at programmable presets, but big FAT tone enhancement that the Boss didn't have. And for those who really want to stay on a budget, the ODB3 is good I guess, but remember that you also have to buy the Adapter for this. It not only has a very short battery life, but also is EXTREMELY NOISY without the adapter.

    This is a great effect pedal for anyone looking for that metal sound. It is great quality and has never failed me when I needed it. I love the way that it cuts through the tone of my bass giving it that overdriven effect. Boss is really the boss of all effects pedals. I would recommend this to anyone.

  • BOSS OD Pedal

    As reviewed by David Divad on 5/30/2007

    I just bought this thing a week ago and it sounds awesome! It has so many different sounds from slight distortion to a crunchy growl. Great for metal and heavy rock. But when you get it make sure to get a new 9-volt cause the one it comes is basicaly dead, or an adaptor. Otherwise your set to rock! !,,!
