    I'm looking in to buying a overdrive pedal for my J-Bass and was wonder if the Boss ODB3 was a good decision

    It was the first pedal I bought when I started playing bass. I didn't like it.

    It does have a good deal of adjustability, but it's strictly a heavily distorted sound.

    I, personally, don't dig the sound or how over-the-top it is, but some people really do.

    Do a search and see what the other threads say about it (there's plenty of info here), and try it out yourself; everyone carries boss pedals in-store.
  5. the search function will give you many a good result. This pedal is frequently spoken of here.

    Just out of curiousity, what exactly was the point of this?

    I think that was a way of describing the sound produced by the ODB-3. :)

    Well, I don't like the ODB-3 either.

    To the OP, try one out in the store, if you like it then it's okay.
    But there are a lot of better altenatives for overdrive.

    I like my Ibanez Phat Hed,... to my taste.

    Sansamp is also something to try out.

    Ginger just had a nervous breakdown from the lack of effort invested by the OP to find answers on a pedal that's been discussed for years here.

    I usually observe a "be nice to the newbie" policy and suggest others do the same, but clearly Mr. Conor is at the end of his rope. A rope with a noose on it. :D

    I've always been of the philosophy that you should actually play the pedal before you buy it, and this especially holds true for OD/fuzz/distortion pedals. Just browsing a few pages of the "Post your pedalboard" thread can show you the huge diversity there are in these effects.

    tl;dr, demo/"rent" it before you buy it.

    too bad ginger and boo, you made this previously-ignorable thread hilarious and worthy by making me laugh at it.
