      Behringer's BOD400 Bass Overdrive pedal succeeds on many levels.

      The ratio of functionality to dollars is very high. For a fraction of the cost of mainstream competitor's pedals, and a miniscule slice of the cost of a boutique pedal, you get a Bass dirt pedal that is comfortable across its entire range of gain. At lower settings you get a mild warm overdrive.

      At 50% you get an edgy distortion that has a lot of variation on tap depending on your tone settings.

      At 75%-100% gain, you are well into fuzzed out territory. Cliff Burton and beyond. Good thing you have a clean/dirty blend knob to ensure that your bass tone still remains prominent in the mix.

      The sound quality is high. As good if not better than the pedal it was modeled after, and easy to use as well.

      Plays well with other pedals, too.

      The build quality is solid. Its in a hard plastic case that seems durable enough. I wouldn't go tossing it around, but I wouldn't say its delicate either. Knobs were tight and responsive. On/Off pedal sturdy enough to stand up to normal use, but don't jump on it.

      Great Sound, but at a risk

      I loved the sound of the inexpensive overdrive, and I have purchased many Behringer pedals before, but this is the first that has failed me -- within 5 days of purchase.

      So, I would give 5 stars for a good sound for the price, but with Behringer, you risk a failure. When you find a good one, like my BEQ700 EQ, hang on to it tightly!

        This is a great pedal for the price! It gives my bass more of a fuzz than overdrive wich is great.Also it has a great Bass and Treble boost. So far there isnt anything i dont like about it. you get exactly what you order. the durability is still tba but i'm enjoying it. It's a great pedal for Punk, and a Hard Indie style of playing.

          I have a behringer gear from amp heads to combo amps . So I can say this pedal gets the job done . For bass overdrive it gives you that old dirty bass tone , for those on a budget behringer is the way to go !!!!!

                Comments about Behringer BOD400 Bass Overdrive Stompbox Effect Pedal:

                I play bass in a heavy rock three-piece and I cover a lot of the "rhythm guitar" parts behind solos etc with power chords. While this pedal does a good job of coloring the tone during single-note parts where I double the guitar--in fact I quite like the growl I came up with--it can't keep up with multiple notes and the chords sound synthetic and clipped rather than simply fuzzy. Not going to replace the pedal I've been using.
                Plus the construction is lightweight plastic and the actual pedal mechanism seems pretty delicate; I don't feel comfortable stomping on this stompbox.
                For many people, it's not a bad box for the price, but if you play chords, don't bother.

                    Needed some bass distortion to use in some new tunes the band added. Didn't want to spend a lot. I a/b'd this pedal with a few other more expensive ones, couldn't hear enough difference to warrant the extra cash. This pedal is very adjustable, so it can be a little tricky to dial it in. The dry blend control is the best feature IMHO.

                      This is a good piece of equipment for its price. It doesn't quite stand up to the higher quality pedals, but this certainly is a good buy.
