    Who's tried one of these pedals for bass? It has a 3 band EQ, and Larry Graham uses one so it can't be that bad for bass. I have tried the Boss Bass OD and the Ibanez PD7 and they both sound like crap (IMHO!) I really like the SansAmp a lot, but I want to try the less expensive pedals before I make a decision.

    Never mind, just tried one at GC and didn't like it. :p

    Looks like I might be putting down the $170 for the SABDDI! :D
     
  3. It really depends on the headroom you have with your amp. My 15 watt amp doesnt have a lot of spare headroom, so the pedal is way too harsh. But with my peavey combo (150 watts), I can use it and set the overdrive pretty high before it gets too heavy. It boosts the signal quite well, I use it all the time with my musicmaster just because the signal is so weak.
