    These pedals me, tecx, toasted and davidmwilson are very skeptical over, I've heard sound clips and it doesn't sound anything like a tube od or dist.

    I'm yet to try one though but I will get round to it one day.
     
  5. none of the above will really give you 'growl'.

    growl naturally resides within your bass and amp (pickups a little as well)... effects might be able to slightly enhance growl, but thats about it. they won't give you growl.

    alot of people associate growl w/ overdrive... thats all your going to get out of these pedals and out of all of the choices, the LPB2UBE will be the best choice.
