I'm primarily a guitarist but I just started playing bass.

I have a EHX Deluxe Bass Big Muff. I know it is marketed as a fuzz pedal. I am wondering if there are any sounds it can't make that a bass overdrive (like the ODB-3) can. I'm trying to avoid having redundant pedals on my board.

Hi there!

Overdrive and fuzz on bass are whole different beasts, as with guitar. Overdrive is screaming upper mids, fuzz is much raspier and synth-like. There are different applications for each. If you want overdrive avoid the ODB-3 though. Check out the Ashdown Hyperdrive, Sansamp Bass Driver and Darkglass pedals for a good start in bass overdrive. Good choice on the EHX Bass Big Muff by the way, great pedals.
