    I've been experimenting with some different EQ configs using a TS808 clone that I got a few years back, mainly turning the bass' tone knob all the way back from treble, then doing the opposite with the overdrive's tone knob. I was wondering if there are any pedals that do all of this in one box, as I like the sort of bass fuzz-ish tone I get from it. (also: I know that I can put a GEB7 in an effects loop before the overdriver, board space that would be a measure of last resort)

    Anyone? Do pedals like this even exist?

    The Source Audio Pro pedals have a built in 7 band graphic EQ that affects the distortion only, and the Classic Pro has an algorithm based on the Tubescreamer, among others.

    Not what Im referring to. I want a pedal that has two eqs, one before and one after the distortion. One to control what the distortion sounds like, then one to shape the output.

    My apologies, the OP doesn't seem to make that clear, or maybe it is still early on a Saturday. :)
    With that said, I can't think of any distortion pedals off the top of my head that have both pre AND post EQs. There are some multi-fx units that can handle this, but in a single pedal...hrm. Maybe a custom double pedal by VFE?

    just to fulfill my curiosity: why do you want to have all of this in one pedal instead of 2 like you are doing now?

    Just for the convenience I guess. I dont have a GEB7 yet, I'm using my basses tone pot at the moment. Ill probably just stick with getting a graphic EQ, or save up and get the dual band distortion from FEA labs.

    The Sansamp PSA-1, even though is not a pedal, it does exactly that, the Buzz (and other two unusually-named knobs) are basically a pre clipping EQ.

    Regards! Doug.

    Our SansAmp pedals have pre and post EQ. The advantage to post EQ is that you can fine tune the overall sound much like you do in a studio post microphone or after a track is recorded.

    Also, the old Damage Control Womanizer and Demonizer pedals had a pre and a post eq section. That's the only other one I can think of.

    Wow those damage control things are rather expensive.

    I think Ill probably just get a little graphic EQ and a blend loop, seems like the cheapest option for me.
