The Instant Inspiration Machine!!
metal octopus, 13.05.2018
I got this pedal after seeing Tosin Abasi and Aaron Marshall using it and I decided this was going to be my high gain pedal and I have to say this pedal lives up to the expectations but here is the kicker: This pedal is very high maintenance!

You can get amazing lead sounds without the need of jamming the knobs up and down and it gives you the high gain you want quiet easily.

What I absolutely adored about this pedal is it can give you the most spanky single coil mid gain sound(with a humbucker guitar) when you take the gain to 9 o'clock, bump the presence up, put a compressor in front and roll off the guitars volume when using the inbetween pickup selection and you have the most beautiful spanky modern sound!

Apart from the amazing sounds that this pedal delivers I have to say this is a quite noisy pedal and doesn't go along with electrical interference so you have to be careful with the way you power them.

Pros:
1) Amazing lead and high gain chugga chugga sound.
2) Amazing spanky sound.
3) Not muddy and quite articulate
4) Tight knob

Cons:
1) No mid knob.
2) Not so flexible as far as it's gain structure.
3) Quite noisy

A Keeper on Every Pedalboard
21.02.2017
Finally a pedal that for the tone, the enclosure dimensions and the excellent quality of components IS an absolute KEEPER.

I've been waiting for so much time for a pedal like this, tryng so many other od/dist pedals, that could cover my needs, and the Friedman BeOd does it it very well.

My advice is to play it in a CLEAN AMP! That's the trick that will transform your cheap Amp in a Marshall Stack,
From a Brown sound to a modded Jcm , pure energy.

The bass , treble and mids are not fake or emulated like others od/dist pedals, those freqs are present and could be easily and accurately dialed in...

Adding to this the Presence and the Tight knob , you can sculpture your own spund or replicate exactly the sound of your drems.

If are planning to buy a pedal , this is where you have to start.

TOP choice for TOP players seeking for TOP Tones, with every kind of guitar, from humbucker to single coils, from solid body to hollowbody, playng a High end amp or a small/medium range amp, this is for you.

And you know what, i've already ordered another one for medium od and high gain.

And with the chance offered by Thomann, to return it if you don't like it, i really don't see why not buy it......BUT you will never return it......i'll promise

9 volts or 18 volts its the same sound, offering you the maximum flexibility to powering the pedal with the power supply you like

FINALLY Can't wait for the second to arrive

Thanks Friedman for the sound and thanx Thomann for the great quality of their service.
