Distortion Pedal for Bass/Electric Guitar

  1. I'm really happy with my new PV amp, especially how it sounds with my Tanglewood electric. I don't have a distortion pedal though, which is what I want to use with both.
    So, do I buy a Bass Distortion pedal and miss out on the highs when I use the Tanglewood, or do the opposite and get a guitat distortion pedal and miss out on the lows? Either those, or can someone recommend a pedal that can handle both?

    A Fulltone Bass-Drive will work equally well for bass and guitar.
    So will a Big Muff if you're into fuzzy sounds.

    I like the Boss MT-2, it has a EQ, so you can dial it in. I use it along with a chorus, flanger
    phase shifter and dynamic wah.It works reak good for bass.[​IMG]
