    i wanna get a bass overdrive for some rocksongs. i like the tone of roger mayer voodoo-bass, but i hope the overdrive pedal can do a clean boost too.
    how about the xotic bb preamp, or fulltone bass drive mosfet? and anything else?
    thanks very much.

    Well both are TS clones and will have many similar tones. The BB can get bassy-er and more trebley than the Fulltone, but I didn't find either to be appreciably different from the other. Both can have the TS mid-hump, can be a clean boost and can get very overdriven.

    Might as well throw the Hematoma and the VoodooLabs Sparkle Drive into the mix.

    I haven't used one but - the HBE Hematoma has seperate overdrive and clean boost channels that can be used independently or cascaded. It seems like that would be a 2 for 1. Plus it's only $154 brand new!
