    Can anyone advise on a good all-round distortion/overdrive effects pedal for bass, which they have used and know to be good?

    The sound I'm after is Jean Jacques Burnel (for the benefit of USA members he is bass player with the Stranglers) and also John Entwistle type trebly raspy light distortion.

    Any ideas?
