Juicy Blue Dynamic Bass Overdrive

Very responsive bass overdrive. Tons of bottom end so also pretty good if you're into deep, detuned guitar.

Drive nature goes from light, dynamic overdrive though to very clipped, compressed distortion.

By popular demand we're now offering a 'boutique' version of the kit as well as the production version. You'll get less gain and more useful 'Nature' control. Easily done - just take a look at the extra document linked below.

Board-mounted vertical pots (round shaft) as standard for easy build and simple enclosure mounting. You can use wired pots if you prefer, which have splined shafts.


Partial kit: PCB, all board-mounted components, pots.

Full kit: As above, plus footswitch and appropriate daughterboard/components for your selected bypass type (see Downloads section for details of those), jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, hook-up wire, LED.

Enclosure (pre-drilled) is only available with full kits, and will not take a battery. Knobs are not included.

Builds are only available with full kits including enclosure and vertical-mount pots. Please choose appropriate knobs.


Difficulty: Medium

PCB size: 50 x 44mm

Knobs required: 3

Enclosure: 1590B

Direct-Connect compatible (4-way)

Review update 5 product stars
"Wrote a review before and just wanted to update: Got it build, went for a gig where other bands where playing. (Copenhagen Marathon) And the other bass players and the sound guy (pro) came and mentioned how well they thought the bass sound was. Week later a music producer from China, who came to our practice space, straight away mentioned how well the bass sounded in our practice space (which is poor) and all that was on was this pedal. I have found a sweet spot so fast it s unbelievable, and would recommend!!" Poul - 18/05/2018
Boutique- perfect for a slight bit of grit and grunt! 5 product stars
"I suggested this pedal for you way back, when I wasn t aware of the fairly big difference between the Mad Professor version and the boutique BjFE. Finally got to building this. Fairly quick and simple build as always with your kits! Put together in the morning. Plugged in at night - WOW!! Perfect always on pedal. Low OD for my jazz bass, and since it is quite low od, the entire gain sweep is really useful! Nature control gives great control, and below 12, a nice fat bottom end! Had many od pedals and this is just what Ihave been looking for. Have had another brand w the same chip, which was very good on bass even though meant for guitar (Snarling Dog Blue Doo). Been looking for something with the same chip as it just seemed to have something I really like. This thing just excelled it by miles! Can t wait to play it again! Even the drummer commented positively on it, as he had noticed how good it sounded last night. Thanks a million!!" Poul - 09/05/2018
A fantastic Bass Overdrive 5 product stars
"This is quite a big build for a three knob Overdrive. It fits great into a standard enclosure. It's an awesome bass overdrive. It can handle gentle and dynamic right through to strong fuzz. The tilt control is amazing on bass, it cuts bass and boosts treble or vice versa in one touch from the control. A slight adjustment makes a big change. Red 3mm LED's are easily the best bass overdrive clipping source (which is what this uses) but the circuit isn't as dynamic as the candyman or the Joydrive (both work really well on bass). This pedal is great at full on fuzz, but it's worth playing with the lighter side of it too, especially with the tilt control (nature). If you are looking for a one stop bass overdrive, then this is worth serious consideration. A blue powder coated enclosure with cream knobs just looks right on this puppy!"
