Great distortion pedal!
Tomi_C, 19.01.2019
Finally a pedal that does what it needs to do. Most dual distortion pedals have a boost section that in general boosts the gain of the pedal, and I wanted and needed a volume boost. I have owned a Blackstar HT Metal pedal for a long time, but it was to bulky, and needed a seperate power supply and had a tube in it. For a non stop gigging musician those 3 things are a no no, at least for me. So with this product I got a normal sized pedal, two volume independant channels (gain trimpot inside of pedal, awesome) and it runs on 9V (or 18V with a double cable). And the sound... fantastic. Some of the online videos don't do this pedal justice. When you try it and play it, the feel of a Friedman tube amp that you get is unbelievable... the EQ is not extreme and is very usable, it has a lot of gain but even all the way up it is not unusable, the little presence knob and the tight switch is fantastic too for fine tuning your sound depending on what guitar and amp you use. Very versatile. Usually I can say at least one bad thing about a product but this time I have nothing.. Thank you Friedman.

a high gain monster that sounds great at lower gain settings
Belgian, 26.09.2020
This pedal has heaps upon heaps of gain. Surely more than anyone could ever need.
Modeled after the famous BE-100, this thing sounds amazing, very amp-like.
The lower gain channel sounds great with the gain at 9-o'clock.
+ dual channel is great for dialing in rhythm and lead sounds
+ lots of tonal flexibility with the gain, volume, eq, presence and tight controls
- quite expensive, but what do you expect for a dual-channel boutique pedal?

Great sounding and flexible pedal
WilliamRiever, 14.01.2021
This pedals is a really nice way to get a clean and warm sound and for my taste can act as a nice preamp with a clean power amp or to shape the guitar input for an ampsim. It doesn't have the dynamics of a valve preamp but, for the prices it awesome and provides access to the Friedman sound without breaking the bank.
