    Well well well. I bought all of them for guitar but they are still great with bass too.
    EHX by Sovtek Green Russian Big Muff - real classics, great box but it steals highs from you signal being turned off. So you should put it in a loop or make a true-bypass mode. Sounds cool into the most of the bass or guitar amps. But if you are pluging your bass into it - everything depends on your cab, yep it can sound like a crap through some cabinets. You got to dial tone knobs carefully, its easy to some hissy fizzy sound on high freqs.

    Univox Super Fuzz - legendary stuff. I can`t say it suits for a lot of music styles, but if you need that sound of a crushing mountain - you will get it with superfuzz. Just don't know what to add :D

    Boss HM-2 - mostly known as the spirit of swedish death metal. But if you roll off "high" a bit - then you'll get that fat and heavy tone. Something between fuzz and distortion. My personal favourite!

    The HM-2 is not only the rumoured sound of the entire Dopethrone album by Electric Wizard, but is also the secret sauce of Godflesh's JC Broderick.
