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.

Really is hard to fault

Pete-plays-guitar, 01.07.2017
Probably my most expensive pedal, but having seen so many reviews I took a leap of faith and this really is quite a pedal.

Firstly it is not overdrive, unless you are heavily overdriving your amp with a significant boost, we are well into the territory of distortion.

On the standard setting, there is way too much drive for me, don't get me wrong I play very heavy rock and I was already pushing it at 10 o'clock. So, the trim adjust inside the pedal is VERY useful as this can tailor it to your preference. I now have mine set to 9 o'clock and it takes me from substantial overdrive to all out distortion without going extreme.

The tight and presence knobs really allow you to 'match' this pedal to your rig perfectly.

Soundwise .... it is without fault. You have a cranked Marshall (since a Friedman is essentially a 'tuned to near perfection' Marshall) through pretty much any amp. Even at very high distortion (with my trim setting) the guitar still retains it's character and the pedal is great fun.

For light to medium distortion my OCD beats anything dead, but entering into distortion none of my other pedals come close to the sound of the Friedman BE-OD.

Only one start lost on quality, concerning the case. My OCD feels like it will take a tank running over it, this also goes for my Digitech and TC pedals, whereas for this price, I would have expected more 'beef' to the casing, it feels like thin aluminium.

But as I say, sound wide ..... I am very happy.
