    Yes, I know it's really a guitar pedal but I finally found what I was looking for! All the bass overdrive/distortion pedals I've heard all sounded too fuzzy, farty, bassy (not really a word), and rob me of the tone I like; lot's of edge in the mid and high-end. I also play a semi-hollow bass so that added a whole other layer to things.

    Today I scored this awesome little guy for $39 at a local shop and couldn't be happier. It even conforms to my pedal rule: no more than three knobs.:aok

    I tried that one too! You're right, it does sound great. This one was second but won because of price.
     
  5. How does it sound in a band setting? Stand out/get lost/does alright?

    Only like 3 knob or less pedal? No Graphic Equalizers? No DI's?

    Eh I quite like all the MXR pedals with only one knob but at the same time I'm also loving the totally elaborate pedals that are laden with options too.
     
  8. I just bought the Demon King. It doesn't have three knobs, but it has three footswitches! Does that count?

    From what I've heard, it could very well be my favorite distortion/fuzz pedal.

    I'm in the "less knobs is better" camp. Plug in, tweak some minor settings, play and after the first song then turn one or two knobs a bit to compensate for the venue.

    Nope. I have a 12-band EQ in my pre-amp and no use for a DI.
