Bull. I watched a Rig Rundown with Tedeschi Trucks Band and the bass player had more pedals than Derek and Susan combined.

My favorite distortion pedal is the Fulltone Distortion Pro. It's not a one-trick pony; you can get a lot of different sounds out of it. And it makes a good noise pretty much anywhere you set the knobs.

re: distortion/overdrive pedals
Find a old Boss DS1, they could be bought for 20-25 bucks on Ebay at one time, that may have changed. It is my go to for a heavy distortion, for just some sustain, and a little dirt I have a Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer from the 1980s.

I had one of those from late 70's when I first started playing. Think I paid $20 or so new. Sold it for $270 last year. Apparently the old Soviet ones are pretty collectable.

It was a pretty cool pedal, but I hadn't used mine in years.

If you ask a roomful of 50 guitarists for recommendations of an OD pedal, you'll get 50 responses

That was kinda the point. I wanted to find out about pedals that I may never have heard of before. It worked pretty well for that. Based on suggestions from this thread, I listened to a lot of pedal demos from brands I didn't know existed.

As it should be, bass players should be heard, but not listened to.
