I've been experimenting (for a couple years) with overdrive pedals. I have a particular sound in my head, and buying and returning pedals has been an ongoing task throughout this time - what I hear in my head and what I get from pedals isn't the same thing, so most of them go back to the store. I've probably spent almost as much on shipping as I have on pedals I've kept. I've also done blending, I've tried stacking, etc. What I've figured out is I generally like a mid pushed guitar overdrive better than the ones sold for bass, but..they tend to lose low end (yes, we all know that). Blending them helps the low end, but doesn't completely fix the issue, and the mid freq stuff also gets washed out in the blend. My latest strategy (which seems to be working) is to go ahead and use an overdrive that loses some low end (but not a lot), and then use a klow freq boost pedal to revive the lost low end. Assuming it's not too far gone, the strategy seems to (finally) be getting close to the sound in my head. The "recovery pedal" that's working for me is an MXR micro amp+ - it has a low freq boost that boosts just the very lowest freqs, so you don't end up with a lot of low mid mud. Putting an overdrive and this in a loop, and swithing in the loop gets me a one switch overdrive that, finally!, sounds like I want it to. Anyone else doing this? I haven't seen a a thread anywhere on this, but I can't be the only one doing this.
