Well I picked up a BE-OD yesterday. Let me start by saying, Wow. I am pairing this pedal with a Bugera 333 combo with V30's. I ran this pedal through the clean channel of the amp, along with straight into the effects loop of the power amp. I am running the pedal at 9v. This pedal kills. I started with the trim pot around 8:30, and it has a crazy range of tones. I started with the gain around 9:00, and the pedal accurately recreates the cranked plexi tones from AC/DC, The Who, Thin Lizzy, and most other 70's and early 80's classic rock. The bass, treble, presence, and tight controls shape the tone very well. When I run through the front of my amp on clean, I find the bass maxed, treble around 1, and presence straight up works no matter where the gain is set. Moving from low gain tones(and yes this pedal can in fact do low gain tones) to the gain around 10:30, the Friedman does great Hot-rodded plexi/2203 tones. It gives a nice tone for Randy Rhodes, earlier VH, and alternative rock such as Green Day(nails the Bradshaw gain mod Billie has on his plexi) and Foo Fighters. Turning the gain knob up to noon, the pedal recreates the brown sound to a t. The harmonics and sizzle are right there. Adding a hair of treble sends the tone into AFD territory. The gain is very touch sensitive. It responds well to how I pick. Sending the gain to 10, the pedal nails the 90's thrash Metallica tone. If you increase the treble and presence, it nails Jerry Cantrell's tone. To wrap things up, I don't understand the hate for this pedal. It turns my cheap 6l6 amp into a screaming Plexi. I will admit that if the volume is less than half way up on the pedal, the mids sound a bit scoped, but if the volume is increased, the middy punch and thump of a marshall(or a Friedman if you want to be technical)shines. I'm looking forward to micing this pedal up to get some recordings for you guys.
