    Need some guidance on getting a GREAT bass overdrive/distortion pedal. I've tried the MXR M80, Tech 21 Bass DI, Russian Big Muff Pi, Tubeworks 903, TS808. All tone suckers!!! I hear great things about the Zvez Wooly Mammoth and the Frantone Lo Tone Fuzz. Any opinions here? Much appreciated...

    None of these 2 are overdrives. They are fuzz pedals. Barely any remain from the original bass signal.

    I suggest you try the Jacques Tubeblower and the Fulltone Bass-Drive.

    I'd avoid fuzz unless you truly know what it is. Try before you buy.

    That said, the WM is freaking awesome. Passive only, though.
