Boss always makes a great product and I own quite a few of their stomp boxes. This thing is great as a bass overdrive! There are other bass overdrives/distortions out there, but most of them are going to cost you a little bit more. They aren't worth it. Pick this up and be done with it. It has all the controls over your distortion so you can dial in a smooth tone. Its built rock solid as well and it you find that you don't like it, Boss products hold a high resale value.
One complaint I do have with this pedal is the amount of noise it puts into your signal. When its turned off, its fine, but click it on and there is a hiss. No real way to get this out that I can see. As long as you are playing you're not able to hear it. So as long as its not sitting there left on, you won't hear it.
Within a few minutes I was able to dial in a smooth tone, one that didn't destroy the low end of the bass, but didn't sound muddy. I've gotten everything from a light overdrive, to a raunchy fuzz, to a balls to the wall distortion. I can really use this on songs such as Lakini's Juice by Live and a few other covers. Good tool to have for bass solos as well, so they don't stick out like a sore thumb as much.
My verdict is, if you are in the market for a bass overdrive, its worth picking up. Its going to be your cheapest bet, unless you want a completely worthless piece of crap. Its going to have a high resale value if you decide its not for you. Whats to lose? Just in a few days I have found tons of uses for it, you just have to keep an open mind. It will make you more versatile.

It's even encouraged them to practice more, which is a bloody miracle... Also a great idea to buy a wire that you can plug in directly to a socket so you can save on it devouring batteries.
