    Put Boss ODB3 in the search.

    I would suggest none other than the Electro Harmonix Big MUFF distortion pedal, excellent sustain. Or the Boss bass distortion (the big muff is cheaper I believe, higher quality too).

    danelectro probably has the most distortion, but i prefer a ProCo RAT. The RAT is probably the highest quality.
