A couple of you mentioned the Boss ODB-3 - I've heard that you will lose some of the bottom end when using this pedal. True or not?
Yes you do IMHO. My bass player got rid of his for that reason.
The best way to get what you're describing, is having an A plus B pedal like Boss Line selector, and have the clean signal blended with the dirt (a lot o fthe pedals mentioned have that anyway, but you can crank the gain more and still have great definition.
If you soloed some of the stuff you're referencing, you'd be surprised how bright and clangy and ugly it sometimes is!
Having said all that, those tones can be done with medium gain, using a pick to get a more "guitarry" attack to the note.
