The modern solution for the modern bassist

The BOSS BB-1X Bass Driver is a premium stompbox designed to make your bass sound bold and punchy. More than just a standard compact bass pedal, the BB-1X is like a preamp, a crucial component in creating quality sound. It captures the essence and subtle nuances of your bass, amp, and playing and emphasizes all their best characteristics.

Incorporating BOSS' latest MDP technology, the BB-1X delivers a wide range of superior sounds, from natural clean tones to heavy distortion. It adapts and responds to any playing style or register, but never loses the body and core tone of your instrument. The BB-1X's natural-sounding distortion preserves the high definition and dynamics reflected in the finest details of your sound.

The BB-1X provides a clear sonic outline to enhance your sound, yet never muffles your low end. With the Blend knob, you can easily adjust your tone by mixing the direct signal with the effect sound. Low, High, and Drive knobs offer an extremely wide range of sound creation. These controls not only shape the frequencies, but change the characteristics of the tone as well.The Line Out jack on the BB-1X goes beyond a standard DI out, providing a newly crafted and enhanced direct sound for reaching larger audiences through a PA system. The "1X" in the BB-1X's name represents the pedal's premium look, sound, and feel. Whether you're defining your standard tone or spicing up your sound for soloing, the BB-1X Bass Driver is a must-have for every modern bassist.

• Bold, punchy sound that invigorates the original tone and responsiveness of your bass and amp
• Contains BOSS latest distortion, which adapts to every register and never muffles your low end

As a guitar player switching to bass, this pedal gives me the amount of control over my tone that I'm used to getting through my guitar rigs! A very organic overdrive that's meaty and doesn't lose low end.

It sounds pretty good. If I didn't already have an overdrive (ODB-3) and an equalizer (GEB-7) I would probably buy it.

I tried it out with a Fender Jazz bass into a Traynor solid state amp. It sounded pretty good, bold and punchy as promised. It seemed like an ODB-3 bass overdrive pedal combined with a GEB-7 bass equalizer pedal. If I didn't already have both of those pedals, I would probably pick this up.
