I bought this one used from a local shop a couple of years back. At first I just wanted something to add a little bit of grit to my sound. However, this thing blew me away when I plugged it in. I tried it next to a Boss bass distortion and an Ashdown bass distortion, but the Digitech destroyed them both. First off, the controls were very easy to figure out and made it very easy to dial in any distortion you need. From the subtle to the disgusting. The "blend" knob makes it great for allowing some clean signal to poke through, while the "X-Series" knob brought a new meaning to the term "game changer". I used it to get some edge on a track in one of my bands, then turned it up to get a thick, hard-hitting, and ear-shredding tone in my other band. I've used it for a few live recordings and it holds up just as well. The best part of this pedal is that it has an amazing frequency response and seems to cover all parts of the spectrum. I once used it as a way to fill out the mix, when our guitarist didn't show up for a gig, and the sound tech even thought that it sounded awesome. Even with guitars, this thing helps cut through the mix in nearly any situation. I would also like to mention that when I use it with mu guitars, it sounds insane, as well. If you're looking for a golden nugget of a overdrive/distortion/fuzz, look no further than this little monster, right here.

It sucks the bottem end right out of your bass. I get buzzing whenever I engage the pedal. The battery life is non existent but I use an adapter anyway, so not a big deal. The distortion is ehhh, not raw enough for me and it makes you sound sloppy. I've owned it for five years now and barely use it, I never gigged with it, just messed around once in awhile in my practice space (I took good care of it). Which brings me to my next point, the engage swith (where pedal touches board) is broken. So now it's officially worthless. Don't waste your money.

        I bought this primarily to get a mild overdrive sound but found that I can get a good variety of overdrive/distortion/fuzz with this pedal. I use it with a MM Stingray and a Fender Jazz and both sound great with this pedal. It seems to be built pretty solid and the controls are very intuitive. No problems so far.

        This pedal adds a great tone to your bass. I have mine adjusted to give it a warm tube sound to round out the sound from note to note. I use it all the time, instead of clean. For practice, I run it out of the mixer output into a small mixer and through headphones. It sounds great!

        Great tones for many types of OD and Distortion: I just wish there was a little bit more sounds out of the morph knob since it's so unique and innovative. Very useful though.

        Comments about DigiTech XBD Bass Driver Overdrive Pedal:

        Great product overall, but with one problem. Although the sound of this pedal is very nice I feel like and overdrive/distortion box should have a gain knob. This pedal claims that the 'Morph' knob changes the pedal to sound like various stompboxes. While this may be true, it is just an extremely odd gain knob. All the way left is light overdrive while hard right is a useless hyper-distortion. I would have much prefered independent gain and level controls. All in all, I don't use it enough to have problems with it, so if your just looking for a nasty bass sound thats either off or loud, pick one up.

        Good Bass OD

        Comments about DigiTech XBD Bass Driver Overdrive Pedal:

        I have tried a number of bass distortions and overdrives. This was the first that was acceptable to me. Most were just plain fuzzy no matter what settings were used. I wish I knew which amp/pedal model is the far left setting on the morph dial. That is the one that sounds good. I use it to thicken up my fretted bass by adding a bit of an edge to it. It sounds great and helps fill out the mix.

        OK for most of the situations

        from Turkey, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus

        Comments about DigiTech XBD Bass Driver Overdrive Pedal:

        Well, it is ok for most of the situations it is put into. It gives a decent overdrive sound and nice distortion sounds, but since it is digital, it eats some of the low-frequency if you don't tune it right. I use this pedal with a Bass Collection SB310 (Active with 2 bands of EQ) and I get good sounds of it. I installed a power supply and it is working quite well. One last thing is, which the most terrible, the switch is really of the bad quality.
