I bought a used Boss Bass Overdrive pedal for $25 and I really like it. I front my Carvin PB200 combo with this pedal and it doesn't distort the entire signal, only particular frequencies, so your tone doesn't get muddy or mushy. I use mine just for a slight dirty growl type of a sound. I'm saving up for an Ampeg SVT 300w tube head and 8x10 cab, but until then this little pedal can get me a little close to that SVT growl

I agree with the other guys, avoid using dist/ovrd pedals made for guitars; your tone will suffer
