    The danelectro transparent overdrive pedal works very well on bass. it can give your bass an edgy sound. behringer on the other hand is more suitable for beginners.

    +1 or any used BOSS pedal
  5. some EHX Nano pedals are less than $50, as are JOYO.
    Maybe some used BBE.
  6. Hop on your local CL and see what's out there! Or eBay, if you do that.

    Hop on eBay and set your price limit should be pages of pedals on the cheap.
  9. This and used at GC's site.
  10. How about the Behringer BDI-21? It's their answer to the Sansamp type DI boxes. I've heard good things, and have one in the way. ;) You can get them for around $20 used.

    While I agree most Behringer stuff is suitable for beginners, I will say I've had good luck with my FCB1010.
  11. Insert DOD pedals here.

    the cheap cheap new stuff mostly uses surface mount technologoy which is hard to mod.
    I'd go with a Boss BD-2

    Try those Chinese knockoffs like Joyo or Biyang. You can find them on Amazon.

    If you've got a blender pedal, a Boss DS-1 can be rather nice. For $20 to $30? hells yeah.

    Danelectro pedals in the metal housing... Get them used and have fun.
