  • This Behringer product has been designed to compete head to head with leading products on the market

  • Blue status LED for effect on/off and battery check
  • Runs on 9 V battery or the Behringer PSU-SB DC power supply (not included)

Add Some Grind to Your Sound
One of BOD400’s coolest features is its BALANCE control, which lets you mix the overdriven signal with your natural bass sound for superb clarity, punch and extraordinary character. That way you can add the perfect amount of tube-like tone, without sacrificing all of your precious low-frequency content.

BOD400’s overdriven tones range from a slight grind to the syrupy-thick sound of a tube stack just before meltdown. You also get exceptional tone sculpting, thanks to an onboard 2-band EQ, so you won’t have to worry about your low “B” getting lost in the mix.

What is your opinion of this product?
Want some of that metal guttaral tone for your bass, but don't want to pay for that big name price? Or tired of sacrificing your bottom end on other gain pedals? Look no further. It's low cost but sounds great. This thing will rip the paint off your walls, warp your floors, and pop tiles in the bathroom. I shut down my kids video game console shredding on just this overdrive. Guranteed to tick off the neighbors!

Best I've used
What is your opinion of this product?
Best Overdrive pedal I ever used. The other company's should be ashamed to charge as much as they do when this is very reasonable and better than theirs. Hats off to you Behringer!!!!
Great quality.
Excellent,better than all the rest!!
If this brakes I could purchase 5 more for the price the other manufacturers charge. I got more than I expected

Great little box from an awesome price
When i first recived it, I didn't have a 9 volt on hand. So later i got the battery, and i plugged in, but it didn't turn on. So i got back home and read the description and it said it needed a power pack with it, and it wasn't included. I thought they could've made it more obvious to the eye, but i used my brother's guitar multi-effects pedal's power charger and it works fine. The sound is awesome.
The sound gives a nice tube overdrive sound, like it says. It has a level knob, high and low sounds knob, and a balance knob.
The overdrive i liked took me a bit of tweaking and fine tuning, but it sounded amazing.
Your general opinion of this product.
This pedal is great, small, great price, AND it's purple.
Well, it being a pedal, it doesn't really have a neck, but the controls are pretty easy to use.
The tone was nice. Once you tweak it right, it's amazing.
The paint job is purple. So of course it's going to be awesome.
Well, it didn't do anything out of the box, but after i got it done, it was pretty good for something under $40.

Great pedal!
the plastic is really thick and heavy, I foresee no problems using this in my live rig (which I do)
the best feature is the bright blue LED when the pedal is active. the second best feature is the balance, being able to mix in as much or as little of the original signal to the overdriven signal. awesome!
the tone is awesome. for the price, you can't argue. unbelievable that they got this much tone for that little money. makes you wonder why everybody else's stuff is so expensive...
on/off switch is very soft, you don't really have to kick the crap out of this one to get it to work.
minor adjustments can make major changes in the tone. there is a wide range of uses for this pedal. I dial down the gain and max out the level for a volume boost, or kick up the gain for some nice growl. I really love this thing.
not really partial to purple, but I kinda like it.
it was only active when I plugged it in.
