: I want to get a distortion pedal for my bass, but they're really expensive...Would a guitar distortion pedal work with a bass? Wah pedal?

: And another question....What is overdrive?

Hi there,
I wouldn't advice using a g**t*r distortion pedal with a bass. They do sound good, but most likely you'll lose the low end. The best distortion units for bass split your signal and affect only the high frequencies, thus the low end remains clean and powerful. Don't settle for anything less than that, unless, of course, what you want is a bunch of noise without lows.
Buena suerte and keep that bass up front in the mix,
El Pájaro
