    You can use it for bass.
  2. There are enough. Especially for bass there are coming out some new ones now.

    ~ the Carl Martin Bass Drive

    and I'm sure you can use some that are not made for bass.
    Look out for Electro Harmonix English Muff'n, Electro Harmonix Hot Tubes Overdrive..

    Almost any effects pedal can be used with a bass. Give it a try!

    My personal favorite overdrive is the EHX English Muff'n. A great pedal without losing lowend and breaks up perfectly!

    Cool... thanks for the heads-up on the new EBS gear! Re: valve ODsd, there are plenty, my favorite is the Mesa Boogie Bottle Rocket, also the Budda Phatbass is OK.

    The Fulltone Bass Drive sounds like a tube if you close your eyes, hehe. Just remember, tube does not always equal good.
