Why let guitarists rule the stage? Loaded with growling low-end distortion, the PD7 levels the playing field for the rock bassist. The PD7 is armed with three pre-amp style voicings and an attack control switch, which accents the amount of harmonic content in your sound. With DRIVE, LO, HI, and LEVEL knobs, dialing in a thunderous bass sound has never been easier.

the manual

The PD7 is an overdrive/distortion designed especially for basses and bass amps. It has a character that is completely different from conventional guitar amp distortion units, and features heavy ultra-low sounds together with the smooth high range typical of playing through a guitar amp.
