The Ibanez Tone-Lok Series PD7 guitar effects pedal puts the rock bassist right there with the rock guitarist when it comes to the distortion factor. It's armed with 3 preamp style voicings and an attack control switch which accents the amount of harmonic content in your sound. With its drive, low, high, and level knobs, dialing in a thunderous bass sound has never been easier.
On the outside, Tone-Lok effects are equipped with the Ibanez exclusive "set and forget" Push-Lok rotary pots. Push the knobs down and your tone settings lock securely inside the case”no more lost settings or broken knobs.
On the inside, Tone-Lok pedals feature hi-fidelity components carefully tweaked with the constant input from a new generation of Ibanez players. And all this great stuff comes encased in cool looking, road-tough metal boxes at prices the working player can afford.

I got this pedal about 3 months ago and I'm more than happy to say that this pedal has way awesome features with the types of drives and attacks. It'll give you anything from a little bit of crunchy OD to a full out distorted heavy metal sound. The best part about it is you dont lose any of your tone. If you're looking for a good bass OD, this is what you want to buy.
Compared to the Boss Bass Overdrive, this box is far superior for far less. To me, the Boss O.D. is too noisy. I noticed our local music store quit carrying them after a while, but they still had the Bass Chorus and Bass Synth. The features on this are great. Except the clean. The attack switches get a little noisy on the clean, and the two way EQ is alright...But I love the Overdrive. It's so versatile! You can dial in some fairly light early-ZZ Top Dusty Hill tones, to some of Muse or Beastie Boys tones. I use it to play Sabotage, mainly and for solos. It's a lot of fun, and I'll never sell it despite the fact I'm buying a DM-4 from Line 6 at some point.
I like this thing; it's easy to use, and covers pretty big range of slightly distorted to over-the-top. The attack modes work basically as filters, which allows you to just filter your clean output if you want to, which is, of course, useful if you want to put this to a subtler use.
My brother got this peadal with his first bass and never used it, so I decided to use it as a overdrive. MAN WAS I SUPRISED!!! I wouldn't compare it to a tube screamer, but it's still very, very good.
Not a bad pedal. The sound is pretty good but if you are looking for something subtle, you will probably have to go to another pedal. I use three, MXR DI for the subtle stuff, Phat head for the clang and clatter, and an old MXR Distortion plus for the over the top balls out crunch. The quality of the sound is superb. I have never had any problems with the clipping getting so out of control that it cut out. it is solid and full. There are actually a lot of sounds that you can get on this if you know what you are doing. The best feature is the attack mode switch. You can turn the pedal into an overdrive, distortion, or just a signal booster. The boost that this gives in conjuction with a DI is pretty big, so use it sparringly.The only problem I found with is that it is a little fragile. After a while of using it it became tempermental with the foot switch toggle. At time it just won't turn on or off with out multiple trys.All and all an above average product.
I've had this pedal for a while. The sound is awesome. Its true that it is a little harsh for some things but for the right type of music its great. The only problem is that its not very durable. After about a year it gave up on me. I never took it to gigs I mainly just messed around with it in the studio. For a little more control and reliability I'd have to say definitely go with the Boss Bass Overdrive. A little more expensive but you can get softer more nuanced overdrive and definitely something that will last.
This was my first pedal when I became a bassist and I have gone through multiple effects pedals, but I still have this one. I got it for a great value and it delivers such an awesome phat sound. I sometimes jam with just a drummer and this pedal helps rock the house.
The online soundfile is pretty accurate for this pedal. Unlike a previous statement it definitly does metal. It also does some nice blues. It may be a little too harsh with higher output pickups and single coils. I tried it thru a high output jazz bass and it was a little loose sounding with enhanced hum from the single coils. I also tried it with an discontinued version Spector Performer 4. It has a lower output, lower bass, and tuned to D standard. I tell you it sounded really good. Growly and deep. The attack switch adds a lot of harmonic overtones and some feedback, but that is why it's on the pedal. Although the overdrive and distortion positions sound pretty much the same. This is a true Ibanez gem.
this is my first distortion pedal for bass. As for the sound, it has a great output for a simple looking pedal. Another great thing is that it has an Overdrive or Distortion switch, which means that I bought 2 effects in 1. If your ever wanting to try out distortion or overdrive, i strongly recommend this pedal before you go on buying the expensive more complicated ones. The knobs are cool because it secures your settings especially when at a gig or playing with friends who always fiddle with your stuff.
My first pedal, It's pretty good. The attacks drop the output level a bit when you switch to it. The overdrive sounds alright, I like it. Good for the money.
