    Stupid Newb Question:

    Im currently trying to find some distortion pedal for my bass because my amp, a Crate BT100 is not providing the distortion that i am looking for, i would like to ask which distortion pedals work with bass guitars and what pedal i should get if i am only looking for distortion and overdrive?

    Thanks a lot,

    If you want more extreme distortion, and don't want to pay too much, you might want to look into a Boss ODB-3. It is not a good bass overdrive, though. Otherwise, the Sansamp Bass Driver DI is rated pretty highly over here. Look into those 2 (although there is a bit of a price difference).

    medicine, welcome to talkbass!
    At the top of this forum, there's a distortion / overdrive review thread where TB members have contributed reviews of most of the various pedals out there. That's a good place to start and narrow down the long list.
