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.
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.
I got this pedal, along with a KORG Pandora multi-effects unit, and an IBanez Chorus / Flanger (The CF7) in a used parts deal. I was suspicious of the quality of the Ibanez pedals, mainly due to the majority of reviews I'd read. I was very surprised to find that the effects you can get on this pedal are very tasteful. The real beauty, though is in combination. On it's own, this is a fairly addictive pedal, but the sound gets a little tired after a while. But after chaining up some effects after it, I was able to produce a varity of very cool effects. The overall construction is pretty good, I've dropped this and the CF7 twice each now, and no physical damage is apparent. As with most pedals, the batteries don't last long enough, so I reccomend a power cord. Not much else to say really; for the price, it's a very handy effect to have, and can really bring life to some otherwise weak basslines. (Also try linking a drum machine or effects unit with drum beats BEFORE the PD7, for some really interesting "crunchy" drum tones).
