Best Overdrive in the market
This pedal is amazing, if you are looking for a real OVERDRIVE try this one! I have tested the Boss OC-3, Boss ODB-3, Sansamp Bass Driver DI (the drive knob), and this has the best sound. There are three knobs, BLEND let you mix the amount of drive that you want with you clean tone , DRIVE increase the amount of overdrive and LEVEL set the volume of the overdrive, also there are two options for boosting you signal, adding more attack or bass to your sound. For metal and rock bands this is the best option. About the price, this is a handmade pedal, is expensive but once you try it's another experience!

This will make your bass sounds like a beast
Mind blown by the B3K
This tiny pedal is like having a caged beast inside a small pre-amp.
It can be used as a small overdrive to warm up your tone, boost your signal.
It works as a overdrive/small distortion to pump up the low end, or it can work as a heavy distortion or even fuzz for the dirtiest of sounds. But it will never lose the low end-natural sound of the bass.
These are the features:
Blend: Will mix the amount of effect with the natural sound of the bass. at 12 o' clock it will be a perfect balance or you can turn it more for a hight amount of overdrive/distortion
Level: Sets the volume for the pedal
Drive: Sets the amount of overdrive it will get in your signal, in addition with the Level knob you will adjust the amount of gain received
In the corner there are the Boost knobs:
Attack 1 will make a punchier sound, and Attack 2 will make it sound more brighter going up with the treble.
The other knob has the following set ups Raw, thin and fat. Will boost up the low deep bass sounds, make it sound more aggressive or a balance between the 2.
Does not have batteries and only operates with a 9V adapter. Which comes to my only complain: Darkglass decided to be apart from the rest and they placed the power outlet in a weird location (next to the output) instead of the head of the pedal (which is the common and most practical way)
True Bypass and a cool blue light when it is on that will make you blind lol
If you are up to Heavy Metal/ Thrash Metal, Death Metal, Punk or anywhere where an aggresive bass is needed this is for you
If you would like to give more color to your bass solos if you play jazz, funk, blues or whatever this will come handy since is such a versatile pedal.
Expensive? Get over it this is Top Quality stuff (I tried a lot of distortion pedals for bass and they kill the low end or sound cheap) but this is Pro stuff right there

Brings the thunder...
I am not usually one for too many effects for bass guitar, especially and kind of over drive or distortion. This pedal delivers an authentic overdrive without sounding fake or overly processed. The blend works very well. I would advise anyone looking for an overdrive to purchase this product.

Fantastic pedal with a great kick
Fantastic pedal with a great kick. I use it live all the time. Kind of wish I got the b7k so I could use it for recording, but I'm still very happy with this product. Just keep in mind you cannot use a 9v with this, you have to get an AC adapter.

The best overdrive for bass
This is the best overdrive for bass I have ever heard. Build quality is excellent. The design is simple and straight forward. Very easy to get just the amount of overdrive you are looking for. This pedal is expensive but you get the best sound. There are many effects pedals to choose from but don't waste your time, save your money for one of these.

Honestly not worth the $250. There are probably pedals ...
Honestly not worth the $250. There are probably pedals out there for less than $100 that can get a similar job done.
