Well, my guitarist has started using my Blackstar HT-DistX (my main dirt pedal) for his higher gain pedal, I don't really mind, because I'm using his rackmount multi-fx unit (Boss SX-700) all the time for my delays & such. But, some of our song do need a nice high gain dirt bass sound for when the guitars drop out, or when I need to fill up abit more sonic space, so could anyone suggest to me a relativly cheap pedal I can use, I'm happy to go used, & in the local guitar shop, I tried afew out that I quite liked (as in, could get a decent, useable, sound out off, but not much more) they where (don't shoot me) the Boss MT-2 & Digitech Deathmetal. Would anyone be able to suggest some more for me to demo?

Edit: My band is a hard rock band (if you want sub-genres... well, that's where it gets tricky, were abit of a mix of prog, classic rock, modern rock, metal, industrial, shoegaze & blues)

My current set up is a Dean Demonator/Traben Chaos Obsession/Fender P-Bass Special -> Korg Pitchblack -> Ashdown LoMenzo Hyperdrive (set up for alittle bit of grit) -> USA Big Muff (soon to be replaced with a Devi Ever Super Massive Black Hole clone) -> Nobels Phaser -> Hartke LH500 (with the SX-700 in the FX loop) -> Marshal VBC 412.

Also, please, I've got my fuzz sorted, so there's no need for a suggestion like a Bass Big Muff, & my mild OD is sorted.

Boss ODB-3. Or whatever the bass overdrive pedal from Boss is called. It's more of a fuzz pedal, rather than an overdrive pedal. I like mine alot.

The resonant frequency of the clitoris is too low for the guitar players to take care of.

I have a Meridian MTE-5 Metal Zone, which is a bit of a weapon. In my pro, the song 'Trojan Bitch', is my Rick copy thro' the Meridian, for a Lemmy-ish tone. The parametric mid is the trick in this one - it'll run from sludge to ear-piercing. Does great 'stuck wah' tones too. Amazingly easy on batteries.
And it's a good bit cheaper than the Boss.

so what you want is a heavy drive sound right?

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

hmm.

for what you're saying, what creepingjesus said should fit.

another pedal, since you like having lots of options available while you're stomping around, a Sansamp DI- it can have up to 4 settings at once, depending on which pedal you get, there are 3 options. if you cut the bass and treble all the way, you'll get a nice mid boost- the internal knob is set to 5. and it can get both your light and heavy drive sounds well.
