I've been searching for just a little bit of distortion when the bass gives a lot of output, like when i hit a string particularly hard, or a chord, or what have you. Pretty much like you would if you were playing through a guitar tube head with a teeny bit of gain. I've tried using a few overdrive pedals, but I can almost get what I want, but then I turn it off and realize how much warmth and bass tone the pedals cut. I'm just looking for a subtle overdrive that doesn't cut my low end so much. I have a GK 1001-rbII and a bass with EMG's. What are your thoughts on the ebs (I've used the multidrive ebs with tubesim, that was the closest I got, but it cut too much, is this any better?) or have any suggestions that aren't rediculous?
