    I've heard many good things about the PD-7, though I have yet to try it. Just go down to your local guitar center (if you have one) and try it out. Also Ibanez has some cool sounds samples on thier web site.

    I use a DOD G7 processor with the Grunge patch set at maximum for my distortion channel. It produces tons of distortion/sustain, and I can easily pull feedback out of my bass. I asked a DOD tech if they make/made a pedal that has the same circuit, and he told me that they don't. Before the DOD, I used to use an older SansAmp pedal that had awesome tone. I haven't tried the Ibanez unit, but I read good things about them.

    I really liked my Ibanez PD-7.
    Excellent pedal, unbeatable for this price.
    I only got rid of it when I got a Fulltone BassDrive.

    DOD doesn't make it....ANYMORE. They did make it at one time and it's the FX92 BassGrunge. I have one and use it all the time. It's a great pedal and they can be had for pretty cheap on ebay, although they are getting rare. Goes from crisp overdrive to full-on raunchy fuzz. You can even play power chords on it with the distortion cranked and it sounds good. I also highly recomend the Ibanez PD7. I tend to prefer cheap pedals.
