What sans amp to get for bass distortion?

Hey guys just looking for some advice on what sans amp to get. The rbi? Pedal version? Or the new svt pedal?

I use the RBI and it works great for getting an aggressive dirty amp tone.
I love that it also has uneffected outputs, so it allows me to avoid needing a stand alone di box.
It's extremely flexible with all the connection options and it sounds great, I reccomend it!

I came across it by chance but tech 21 Comptortion (comp set at 0) pedal is great for distortion on bass, it leaves the bottom end big and beafy. no other distortion pedal I have (and I have many) does that on bass, they will always cut the bottom end.

The RBI can get some distortion, but RPM gets real bass distortion. Its great.
