Recommended Over Drive/ Distortion Pedals
I play bass for a hardcore punk // power violence // grindcore (fast, heavy, aggressive and technical stuff in other words) band, we gig regularly and I need to know what overdrive/distortion pedal would be best to use for this type of music.
I use am American Fender Jazz Bass and we play in drop C tuning.
I've been hearing great things about the Source Audio OFD. Very versatile and it sounds great. You get everything you might need in one box with 2 presets. Some don't like the fact that it's digital but a lot of people who are analog purists have admitted that this pedal sounds great. The price is pretty reasonable as well considering all that it offers.
Do you like a clankier/grindier drive or a doomier/fuzzier drive?
Here's some info too. I know your needs are different than mine, but I have been finding that many of them sound ' alike' at a certain point,and can cover a lot of ground
For that type of music I'd just use a gk800rb and crank it with an 8 10. The gks have a great grind to them. You could also use a tube head with a good overdrive pedal. I like tube screamers and other pedal inspired clones of the same circuit. If you want more distortion the BOSS bass driver is a good affordable choice. Best bet is to try before you buy if possible.
