Boss odb-3 overdrive recordings

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by basegetar, Jan 20, 2002.

  1. I know... it's not really an overdrive, and it's garbage etc etc. But I want to know of some recordings/bassists that make use of the ODB-3.

    I Think Tim C. from Rage Against The Machine uses that on quite a few tracks on Battle of L.A.

    at the very least, flea used it live (no wonder his clean tone sounded as if his fretboard was made with carbon fiber...);)
  7. Flea Uses EBS, thank you :)

    Flea does not use EBS.

    He uses the ODB-3.

    How he gets it to actually sound good, no one knows.

    Level: 9:00

    High EQ: 10:00
    Low EQ: 12:00

    Dry/OD: 8:00

    Gain: 8:00

    I use Bartolini passive pickups, with active electronics. I love the way this pedal sounds. Very versatile.

    I think Pete Steele from Type O Negative uses the ODB.

    Heh... "Old Dirty Bastard." That'd be an interesting musical collaboration, yeah?

    Yeah, I'm easily amused.
