Uncle Ernie's BassDriver:
Uncle Ernie's BassDriver is the result of 3 months experimenting to come up with a truly useful and musical distortion that sounds great for Bass and Guitar.
The pedal is a Clean Boost in parallel with an Overdrive. Unlike the mass market versions that have a balance control between them, this pedal has two Volume controls for much greater flexibility and output volume.
Also, the Distortion side has a bit of a bass shunt so the low end doesn't get muddy from the distortion. The Clean side is full range for Bass so you basically blend the two together to have clear lows and singing, sustaining highs.
There is also a switch to change the clipping from symmetric to asymmetric. Symmetric clipping is a bit harsher than asymmetric. There is also a slight volume loss in asymmetric but there is plenty of total gain and volume to make up for this loss.
Basically the Bypass takes the pedal out of the signal path, turns it off. The Distortion switch turns on the distortion side of the pedal. Note that the Boost is always "ON" if the Bypass LED is lit. If you want to have just Distortion, turn the Boost volume down.

HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 12/11/2006:
"the sound quality is outstanding! i bought this pedal to give me tone a very dirty and gritty sound without creating fuzz as previous pedals i tried had done. and it worked as i hoped. i use the distortion channel mainly, and its the tone i was looking for. very nasty and dirty. i love it! but when i do choose to use the clean boost channel is adds alot of body from the bass without muddiness. i use it with my ampeg svt 3pro and 8x10, when i have the drive knob turned all the way up on the dist. channel i do get a little bit of feeback when i face the cab. but, i dont face the cab when im playing so this is not a problem. i havent gotten a bad sound out of it yet"
