Well, it's a *guitar* pedal, noted for its distorted sounds, not sure just changing value of a couple capacitors will turn it into a Bass preamp.
For starters, I'd try it as-is.
After all, early Fender and Marshall Bass amps were *almost* the same as the Guitar version ... and were not *meant* to distort, so it could be done.
Isn't there a similar Tube_to_Fet conversion, but based on an Ampeg?
I bet that should suit you more.
Good luck.
