i dont see much point in an overdrive pedal for a bass to be honest, just buy a nice amp and it really wouldn't make much difference anyways. go for some nice effects pedal instead...

I think the billy shean fx may be an envelope filter

I've always liked flangers and wahs. And a good overdrive/distortion never hurts.

I tried this one pedal called a discomBOBulator. It sounded ****in' sweet, but I didn't have much use for it at the time, so I didn't get it. Now I'm broke, so I can't get it.

I always thought this process of effects generated some interesting sound:

Bass > Amp > FX send > distortion set low > LFO controlled cutoff/res filter > light flange > whammy pedal > awesome.
