So I listen to a wide variety music including classic rock, modern metal, experimental, folk ext.

I've been looking at the Big Muff (Bass version, but is the standard fine?), Boss's overdrive, and some other pedals. Do you guys have any recommendations?

If you like playing the kind of bass that's in Muse's Music (ie. Hysteria, Time Is Running Out, Uprising) then get the Big Muff, either the bass or guitar version both work fine. That's all I know about that.

I have an Ibanez PD-7 and it sounds pretty good. I would recommend it if you're looking for a distortion or OD pedal. If you are looking for a fuzz though I would say a Big Muff.

I am a fan of Muse, but I'm not sure if I want to restrict myself to that sound.

Distortion pedals are pretty useless for bass. An overdrive pedal will do pretty much everything for you that a distortion pedal can do, except it can do it more lightly.

I find, if you want a really heavy sound, fuzz will be far superior to distortion. If you want a lighter sound, overdrive is the way to go.

It really depends on what you want to do with it. Overdrive and Fuzz are two completely different things and used in completely different settings most of the time - really, only you can decide.

Overdrive is fatter and more versatile for someone playing several genres like you.
