Average Distortion

By Kevin Glenn

from Palatine, IL

Comments about DigiTech XBD Bass Driver Overdrive Pedal:

The Bass Drive emulates the TS-9, Rat, and the Fuzz Face. I did not notice much of a difference between the TS-9 or the Rat settings, but I did notice a difference with the Fuzz Face settings. The pedals biggest downfall is that the distorted sounds are fairly average sounding. Nothing really jumps out tone wise with this pedal. The Bass Driver seemed to be missing that growl and crunch that bass players need to be heard. When I tried it out, I had my bass controls flat and the amp controls flat with the bass knob at "7". The only redeeming value is that the blend knob on it works really well for combining your bass tone and the distorted tone. Definitely try before you buy.

for the Cliff Burton lovers

By Jeff

from Marshalltown, Iowa

Comments about DigiTech XBD Bass Driver Overdrive Pedal:

this pedal is very versitile. For the metallica lovers, it gives a good fuzz sound as heard on the opening riff of "for whom the bell tolls" pair it with a wah and you can impress your friends. I've had this pedal for a couple years now and it hasn't failed to meet a challenge yet, I would definatly recomment for musicians new and veteran.

I Like it...

By Gramps

from Canton, GA

Comments about DigiTech XBD Bass Driver Overdrive Pedal:

Multi-effect pedals aggravate me as there are so many options to work through, you can tinker and tinker and never get that sound you're looking for. With this pedal, it didn't take but a few minutes to dial in that nice fuzzy, growly over-driven tube sound I was looking for (I play through a solid state head). Plus, I didn't have to deal with modeling a multitude of sounds to get there. Bottom line, I like it...

Pretty decent overdrive pedal

By NashvilleCat

from Undisclosed

Comments about DigiTech XBD Bass Driver Overdrive Pedal:

If you're looking to add a little something new to your sound, I would definitely recommend the DigiTech XBD Bass Driver Overdrive Pedal. I play an ESP B-304FM bass through an SWR LA series amp and this little thing definitely adds a new dimension to my sound and it has a pretty good range on it too. I can add anywhere from a light bit of distortion to classic rock fuzz to full on growling bottom-end distortion. Its features are pretty good too. With the optional AC power adaptor, I just plug it in and I don't have to mess around with batteries constantly dying. And with its rugged metal frame construction, its pretty durable so it will withstand years of stomping on and off it. I bought mine two years ago and I haven't had a single problem yet. Overall, if you're looking for a single effect pedal with a decent sound for an affordable price, than this is the pedal for you.

Decently Surprised

By James

from Nashville, IN

Comments about DigiTech XBD Bass Driver Overdrive Pedal:

I just got this pedal a couple days ago and i like it. it works really well and the blend feature works amazingly my only problem is that the sound and tone is not what i expected it produces a warm buzz tone tone that sounds great but not for heavy metal it works more for rock bassists who like to add a little distortion to set themselves apart from the low end of the band and bring a nice high end tone. for the money though it is an amazing deal. i got mine used for cheaper but even then it was still close to this price. if you want a higher end distortion pedal i would look at getting a BOSS bass overdrive pedal but if you can't afford it get this one.

Great for what I needed

By Gary Moore

from Brunswick, GA

Comments about DigiTech XBD Bass Driver Overdrive Pedal:

I was looking for a descently priced overdrive pedal for bass. Well, this is it. It has a good mix of tones from loud, cutting crunch, to warm bass heft overdrive. Again, you get what you pay for. If you're looking for the tube style overdrive/power, you are going to have to look elsewhere and pay considerably more, but, overall, I am pleased with my purchase.
