The ODB-3 is Boss’s first attempt at making a bass overdrive pedal. It is designed with the bass guitar’s lower frequency range in mind. With the overdrive turned off it also works well as a gain booster or two-band equalizer.

The balance knob controls the overdrive. It can be adjusted from dry (clean) to fully overdriven. With the Gain knob, the boost can be adjusted. With overdrive sounds, more gain will increase the depth of the pedal’s distortion.
