Love it!

What is your opinion of this product?
Great pedal. Plenty of gain for whatever you want. Dial it back for more OD drive style and crank it for your pleasmental pleasure. "Tight" knob let's you manage the compression. Bass, treble and prescence knobs give you all the tonal versitality you need. I pair it with the defcon 4 and it completely rips. Great od/distortion pedal for the price.

Sounds like the real thing
What is your opinion of this product?
I live in an apartment so massive tube amps are too loud for me unfortunately, but I run this directly into a Seymour Duncan powerstage and a 212 and it’s as close to the real thing as you can get. They were not kidding when they said “amp in a box” with this thing. Sounds killer thru the clean channel of a tube amp too.

HOT PEDAL!!
What is your opinion of this product?
When you’re in the mood to jam out some searing rock tones, this pedal should be the go-to! It can do crunchy, it can do compressed; it can warp you to the 80s with Rhodes tones and then take you to the sanatorium with Hammett style crunch. I find this pedal is great on its own or even better with an EQ pedal in chain. Does not play well with other distortion pedals, this one is too mean!

BE100 in a pedal...no kidding!
What is your opinion of this product?
An amp in a box, no other way to describe this pedal. I have played on a BE100, and this pedal is as close to the real thing as it gets. Excellent pick response, effective tone controls, and SO MUCH GAIN on tap. When gain set at zero, you get a nice crunchy tone, enough for rhythms, etc. At around 8 o'clock on tje gain dial, the pedal takes on new life. I normally run it nowhere past 10 o'clock, and am happy with the amount of gain and response this pedal gives. And running it on an 18 volt supply is the only way to do it. The headroom changes at 18v, and is alot more crisp and tight. I would recommend this pedal over many others i have owned, such as the OCD or the Bogner Red, which are great pedals in their own right, but do not come close to the BE OD.

This is a great pedal
What is your opinion of this product?
This is the best distortion pedal I have ever played through. It is very versatile, especially with the internal trim pot. It can go from a slight overdrive to full on metal, you will never say that it doesn’t have enough gain, i keep finding myself backing the gain down. I will point out that ive played this through multiple tube amps, and the outcome has been great on all, but i tried through a solid state randall rg1003, and could not get a usible tone, so that may be something to think about.

It's Practically Perfect
What is your opinion of this product?
Automatically sounds good. Friedman is clearly a genius. It's built like a tank, the knobs are solid so they don't shift while playing, and the sound is incredible! On my tiny VHT combo, or my triple rectifier.. this thing is amazing!

Great Metal Pedal
What is your opinion of this product?
Out of all of the metal oriented OD/Distortion pedals I have played/owned in the past 28 years, this is the first one I've actually put on my pedalboard for gigs. I use it with a Mesa Royal Atlantic head, into the clean channel and get excellent results. So far it seems to play well with my other pedals, (CAE Crybaby wah, OCD, Xotic EP Booster and BB Plus). The BE-OD definitely sounds and feels more like an extra channel for the amp rather than a distortion pedal. It is also not buzzy like so many other pedals geared toward heavier music. I am glad to have it for the thrash/death metal I still play on occasion, without having to pull out my Dual Rec.

Black magic in a box awesome
What is your opinion of this product?
Love this OD. Reacts like an amp when you roll off you guitar and has more than enough gain to go from Blues to Metal. Hands down you get what you pay for and this little black beauty delivers 100%.
