I pulled the trigger on the Friedman BE-OD today. I tried many settings on it and I came pretty close to the sound in my head. This thing is a beast, man. Gain for days and very organic. I took the EVH signature pedals off and I don’t miss them, surprisingly. I’ve been a MXR guy for many many years. The BE-OD makes me want to play and come up with riffs. I sure did miss that.
