OVERVIEW

A bass overdrive pedal with rich, tube-like distortion, smooth sustain and super-fat tone!

The Bass Overdrive BOD400 Bass Effects Pedal is an overdrive pedal that supports the entire frequency range of bass guitars, even 5 & 6-stringers. The best part of all, the Bass Overdrive BOD400 was designed specifically for bass, so the bottom-end won't drop out when you pull the trigger.

One of BOD400's coolest features is its Balance control, which lets you mix the overdriven signal with your natural bass sound for superb clarity, punch and extraordinary character. That way you can add the perfect amount of tube-like tone, without sacrificing all of your precious low-frequency content. BOD400's overdriven tones range from a slight grind to the syrupy-thick sound of a tube stack just before meltdown. You also get exceptional tone sculpting, thanks to an onboard 2-band EQ, so you won't have to worry about your low "B" getting lost in the mix.

From its easy-to-use controls, to its noise-free On/Off switch, the Bass Overdrive BOD400 will keep you solidly in the zone.

FEATURES
  • Tube-like distortion, smooth sustain and super-fat tone
  • Unique Balance control to blend between overdriven and dry bass sound for maximum punch
  • Dedicated Level, 2-band EQ and Gain controls for awesome sound shaping
  • Blue status LED for effect on/off and battery check
  • Runs on 9 V battery or the Behringer PSU-SB DC power supply (not included)
  • First-class electronic On/Off switch for highest signal integrity in bypass mode
  • High-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life
  • Conceived and designed in Germany

Add some grind to your sound today!

I get a variety of good, useable tones out of this one box. In fact, this has replaced the distortion patches I was using on my trusty DOD Bass 30 entirely. To say that I am happy with any stock stompbox is a big deal, because I have only a few left in my collection that I haven't modified the circuitry in to better suit me. This is one of the few originals, and that says volumes. I step on mine regularly, and haven't had any issues with it. I'm not a bass player, but I play one on my records. I've been playing lead guitar for 20 years, and I know good sounds. I say this to inform you that my credentials are in good order. You can get any sort of growl you want, thick or thin- and as much or little of the clean as you need to retain the punch at the same time. The only thing I would change is the color of the box... Since that has absolutely nothing to do with the sound it makes, I'm fine with it. Seriously, I was skeptical too when I saw the price. Don't let it, and the silly color fool you- Let your ears be the judge. Being a man with ears, fingers, and experience beyond my years, I highly recommend it to everyone.

I got this a while back to add a some gain to play a bit of metal with a bit of overdrive on top as well as fattening the sound of the bass. Unfortunately this will never give you a "smooth" gain sound like having a guitar amp's gain around 2. Having gain down all the way shuts off all sound to the amp, and having it around 2/10 puts on a harsh brittle overdrive no matter the EQ. Sounds a little better with flatwound strings. This pedal goes all out or nothing. If a "Hysteria" sound is what you're going for, this will do it but not a true amp low/med-gain sound.

        Comments about Behringer Bass Overdrive BOD400 Bass Effects Pedal:

        I am kinda aggravated at this pedal right now. It doesn't give any nice growl to your bass. Either you turn it on and get no difference what so ever, minus *MAYBE* a volume boost, or you get your tone nearly too fuzzed up to recognize the notes. I was just experimenting with this, with the volume loud enough to actively hear the difference, my bottom cab's speaker ripped. If I could reverse time about five minutes ago to throw this thing out a window? I would.

        Comments about Behringer Bass Overdrive BOD400 Bass Effects Pedal:

        I can't really think of anything bad about this pedal. I just use it to get some distortion on my bass. I'm not an experienced bassist so I just got a low cost distortion pedal to fool around with. If you want a low cost distortion/overdrive pedal to fool around with for bass, I would recommend this. this pedal's got a nice little range of overdrive to it, you can get a litte growl to full distortion with this pedal(if that makes sense)

            Its plastic as you know, so I plan to keep it off the floor and my feet away from it. It has a lot of sound available, I am a teatotaler and barely have to turn it up much at all for a great breakup with my J.

              Good quality and tremendous price.
              Made of plastic, but taking care to not STOMP on the pedal should make it last. Happy with this purchase.

                  I'm a little mad I mean it sounds good adds some balls seems like it could be a decent product and all but I used it three times and it is broken already. It's made of almost one hundred percent and feels so fragile and it couldn't survive me turning it on so I don't think it would handle well on the road prob better off picking up a boss its a little more but its built to last.
