    I'm trying to find a good low-gain OD that sounds good on its own and can stack well with my VT Bass without pushing it to an extreme. My only criteria are:
    -Blend Knob
    -EQ section (preferably with a mid control)
    -9V (although 18V would be acceptable)
    -Not too big

    Ones that I've already tried and didn't care for: Boss ODB-3, MXR Bass DI, SansAmp __-Drivers.

    Thanks

    The blue berry is kinda cool. The one I still use the most is a Fulltone Bass Driver.

    They used to be all over the place for cheap but not so much any more.

    Curious if you found it yet? The Rusty Box clips sound great.

    Also, the purple Behringer bass o.d. gets much lower gain than the Boss ODB-3. And, since it's purple and kinda fuzzish, I think it might really be a Pork Loin clone! (And they're only $24 new at Mus. Friend.)

    What about Pork loin?
    -blend knob - yes
    -9v - yes
    -EQ section - I think it has a tone control with curve setting
    -not to big - that's relative

    Pork Loin for sure. It may look big at first, but thanks to the top jacks is about as wide as side jacked pedal with cables plugged in.
