Boss ODB-3

Bass Overdrive PedalAs the first bass overdrive in the BOSS Compact Effects series, the ODB-3 has been specifically tailored to the needs of today's bass players. It delivers everything, from slightly tweaked sounds to massive overdrive in excellent, impressive quality. The ODB-3 covers the entire frequency range of the bass - down to the deep B on a 5-string - so you always have a first class distortion with a clear, transparent sound. With the BALANCE control you can mix the bass and the effect signal to get the brilliance and the pressure of the original sound fully, even in heavy distortion. The ODB-3 overdrive pedal can also be used as a 2-band equaliser (low / high).

  • Tailored to the bass overdrive sounds with pressure and clean, clear sound
  • Acting in complete bass frequency range
  • Distortion without loss of hardness and brilliance
  • Robust, compact design
  • Controls: Level, High EQ, Low EQ, Balance, Gain
  • Power supply: 9V battery or 9V DC power supply (centre negative both not included, suitable power supply: Art.409939)
  • Power consumption: 15 mA
  • Dimensions (W x D x H): 70 x 125 x 55 mm

The pedal comes in usual Boss quality and the five knobs are self-explanatory if you know what an overdrive effect is. But: It took me literally ages to find a good sound with the ODB-3. To me it sounds too harsh in most settings, more like a (good!) fuzz. Now I am totally satisfied with a fat and deep overdrive sound and do not dare to touch any of the knobs ever again.

A reliable OD pedal

27.02.2015
Great for a fuzzy OD, durable & reliable. The pedal is quite versatile, perhaps not as versatile as others though. The EQ sounds its best working with higher, more treble-y frequencies. Good sound for alternative rock, metal, psychadelica.
