Um...just turn on your distortion. You do have an amp that has a distortion channel, right? Because an amp will be infinitely better than a pedal.

Last I checked, most bass amps don't offer distortion.

I assume bass because it's in the Bass Guitar section...


Anyway, your best bet would be to either crank the drive/gain control on your amp for a bit of dirt, or take a look at some bass fuzzes, since a lot of Doom is buttloads of fuzz.

Check out the EHX Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi and the MXR Bass Fuzz Deluxe. Both are fairly versatile reasonably priced fuzz pedals which allow you to blend the wet signal over your dry to maintain the integrity of your low frequencies and your definition, hence suitable for an on-all-the-time fuzz sound.

If you want a fantastic, fuzzy sound, I'd go with a Boss DS1 and an MD2 aside it. You'll get nasty (read: wonderful) feedback if you don't learn to control the latter, but it gives it a hell of a sound.

Alright, first off this is entirely subjective.
The majority of bass amps do not have their own distortion channel. Ones that do will not sound "infinitely better" than any pedal you can buy.
If you have nothing useful to say, don't post.

To the TS:
I recommend a Proco Rat, depending on your budget. good drive up to near fuzz tones. If you can, buy one with an LM308 chip.
sorry missed the budget. Get the LM308 one.

Jus uses a Boss FZ-2 hyper fuzz which is a super fuzz clone with some extras. I have an Earthquaker Devices Hoof Fuzz which works great with bass and is a big muff clone. I got it for $115 used and it sells about $160 new, definitely worth checking out.

Do some online research for fuzz pedals then find a store where you can try them out for a little while, you won't know until you play one.
