I've picked up an Australian made overdrive pedal in an attempt to get a decent 808 copy to use as a clean boost for metal.

I'm not having much luck with it, but I'm not sure if it just requires more tweaking.

It is advertised as similar to an 808 with better bass response.

My question is, how does better bass response translate to what you hear in lay mans terms?
bass response means how well it reacts to low end, for instance, with good bass reponse it shouldnt distort when your drop tuning for instance.

Not as in the good distortion, the buzzy, too much low end.
