    Hmm... I've got a Bass-Drive but no Jazz basses around. Do you own the pedal? Have you not been able to get the sound you're looking for or a sound you're happy with?

    My guess would be to turn the tone knob down if you're using roundwounds. Jack Bruce was using a Gibson EB-3, whose pickups are completely different than a Jazz, both in terms of output level and sound, though I don't know what pickup settings he generally used.

    I'm gonna go listen to those tunes you mentioned...
