Awesome

Cliff D., 03.05.2016
Really great. I was worried it would act similar to a distortion pedal. It gives a really nice low end growl that I could not seem to get from distortion pedals. You can still get that distorted bass sound very easily too if required. I'm really happy with it and have ended up leaving the pedal on from start to finish at my shows

Little Wunderbox with a lot of whimpering

Simon2019, 26.03.2018
The slightly different overdrive BB-1X from Boss could absolutely convince me in direct comparison with the ODB-3.

Conventional bass distortors often show the unfortunate side effect that the bass in combination with other instruments noticeably loses its ability to assert itself when activating the distortion, simply no longer has the stunts that it had without distortion.
The BB-1X leaves lower frequency ranges untouched, allowing the bass to remain assertive and build up pressure next to the guitar and drums. This advantage was crucial for me, as I have to be present at all times in my band (once guitar, bass, drums, singers) in the low frequencies.

In general, the BB-1X does not distort as much as the ODB-3, so if you want strong distortion in all frequency ranges, you should probably opt for the ODB-3. Nevertheless, the BB-1X can produce a powerful, snotty bass sound when the drive is fully open, and the high and low controls allow it to be adapted to individual tastes.
The level and blend controls allow you to efficiently tune the original signal and distortion.

The processing is, typical of Boss, of high quality. The BB-1X produces no noise and the metal housing seems indestructible, crash tests have not been carried out by me yet and I keep the effect still in the original packaging.

If you want to use this effect more often, however, should buy the corresponding power supply or a power station. I initially insisted on battery usage. The small part is quite a power-hungry, so you should refrain from it. When the battery runs out of steam, the signal (even in deactivated mode) begins to rustle by itself and loses its power.

All in all, I am very satisfied with the BB-1X and I can absolutely recommend it.
