  1. Is it hard to build your own overdrive pedal?..just wondering outta sheer curiosity, cuz I've read here and there how some bass players make their own pedal to their preferences and stuff like that.

    Once you learn how to solder and understand basic electronics theory, it's not hard at all. Honestly, the hardest part is getting it all in that cute little box and coming up with a good name :p
