MXR Bass Overdrive

Just ordered this pedal without ever trying it. No one here has it in stock to try. Anyone have any experience with it?

Well it's a little late to be asking for advice.

Assuming you mean the M89, it's pretty good but nothing special.

Have fun!

I have one and it's much better at boosting than being a overdrive.

What do you mean exactly? My goal isa clean tone mixed with a small to moderate amount of gain.

I use to get a slight overdriven tone out of my SWR SM-900 at lower volume levels. Since the SM-900 is notorious for having overheating issues with the volume set above 9 o'clock.

I played it a few days ago, but it didn't exceed my expectations. The main problems are that it's too expensive (at least in my country, 1.5 times expensive than Boss ODB-3!) and the controls are not sensitive at all. I mean I was turning the knobs to min and max, tried different positions, but I didn't get too much different tones. The good thing is that it keeps lows though.
