Overdrive: BDO-100 or even ODB-3?

    As a quite new bass player I'm looking for a decently (<100 euros) priced overdrive pedal to use with my 5-string Ibanez BTB205. Mostly I would use it for metal in my band, but I think it could be useful in other styles as well.
    The local music shop sells both Behringer BDO-100:s and Boss ODB-3:s. I was wondering should I go with the cheap Behringer or save some money and buy the ODB-3? Is the Behringer worth anything in the low (ADADG-tuning) range? As far as metal is concerned, the distortion should be pretty sharp and aggressive, not too laid-back and soft.

    I like the ODB-3, I'd reccomend it over any Behringer product.

    But if you want overdrive, you might want to check out the DigiTech Bad Monkey. It's even cheaper, and sounds excellent.

    Ok, thanks. I think they sell that one here too. How about the Digitech Death Metal distortion? Anyone tried that out?

    The Death Metal looks cool and sound awesome on guitar, but i dont know how it would sound on bass, but for metal i would go for a normal overdrive, that extreme a distortion will sound just a mess and not very nice with aload of distorted guitars, get the Bad Monkey.

    The Death Metal eliminates the need for a guitarist ;), and has great lowend but it is really noisy.
