This Bass Distortion pedal istotally Awesome! I like this pedal Because it puts the pedal to the Metal. the Digitech XBD Bass Overdrive/Distortion pedal is the Best Effect Pedal I ever Got. I First Played this Pedal at a Guitar Center at Highland park Road, I was Completely Blown away on how this amazing effect pedal from digitech Sounded. I bought it the Next day and started Rockin'! with the Combination of my Digitech Bass Effect pedals and My Gallien-krueger Bass Amplifire, I can totally pull out a totally Awesome Bass Performance. I would Recommend my Friends and my band members about the Effect pedals from digitech and tell them how cool it sounds...YEAHDIGITECH RULEZ!!!

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.

      Comments about DigiTech XBD Bass Driver Overdrive Pedal:

      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.

      Comments about DigiTech XBD Bass Driver Overdrive Pedal:

      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!

      DigiTech Bass Driver

      By Mitch Baker

      Comments about DigiTech XBD Bass Driver Overdrive Pedal:

      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

      By Tutatsuta

      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.

      Good Overdriver

      By Jack Damage

      from Spring Branch

      Comments about DigiTech XBD Bass Driver Overdrive Pedal:

      I got this the other day..I was looking for a different kind of distortion/overdrive sound..I use a Fuzz pedal and a MXR M-80 and need several different overdriven tones..so I tried this out..I like it better than the distortion on the MXR its not as fuzzy..I use it for a overdrive effect just a hair above the clean sound of my SWR 350x Head. It does what I need it to do..I like it better that that Boss OD pedal..
