Just bought a Boss ODB-3

  1. I won an Ebay auction today for an ODB-3 overdive pedal! I can't wait until I get it. I've heard some good stuff about them, and I'll be sure to let you all know what I think about it. Just thought I'd share the joy.
  2. I've got one for quite a while now, and i'm very satisfied.. :)

    Just 2 tips :

    1) Don't turn the gain up too much.
    2) Turn the treble down.

    enjoy :)

  5. pessimists ;)

    once u use it for a while, and for used to the settings, it's a nice pedal.

    Hey Bassman 1185

    I have the ODB-3 as well and I am very satisfied with it.

    Just follow Allodox advice and you will be very happy also !!!

    It does not suit every Bass, that is a true fact. It does an awesome job with my Rick 4001V63 but I can barely use it with my Gibson Thunderbird. I can not explain it but i`s the case.

    Do not get intimidated by others comments. Make your own opinion. If you like it, good, and if you don`t, then sell it !
  7. I read a bunch of reviews on Harmony Central on the ODB-3. I think I'll like it. I heard that it tends to work badly with active pups, but my basses both have passisve, so I think it will work well for me.
