It Sounds So GOOD
PeterK999, 02.11.2020
This is a fantastic pedal for everyone looking for rich, saturated, musical overdrive and distortion tone. Although I actually bought it for the hi-gain channel (which really delivers), it's the lo-gain channel that surprised me the most. It's got beautiful warm tube-like tones that come really close to those generated by top-shelf tube amps.
A big plus over other pedals or preamps with two channels is that both have their own EQ, presence and gain controls, including very useful "tight" switches.
One minor fault: the metal clip that grabs the input jack was so tight, that the first time I removed the jack, I kind of wrecked it. it got all bent and I had to open up the pedal to take the clip out and bend it back into shape. I guess it was just this particular clip though, as there were no issues on the output side.

I love the Friedman BE-OD Deluxe!
Guy Declerck, 29.04.2021
I love this pedal, it's a high-gain monster.
I replaced my other Friedman BE-OD with this Deluxe version because having 2 different gain stages/channels is really practical for my band-rehearsals! I either use it as a 'boost' or use the channel with 'less' gain for a more crunchy sound. Either way, you can use it for different situations. So overall, not only are the features of the Deluxe version great, it sounds fan-tas-tic!

L'excellente de la distorsion
NicolasN, 06.10.2020
Malgré son nom, la BE-OD est bien une pédale de distorsion plutôt que d'overdrive. Par rapport à la version standard, celle-ci comprend deux canaux, pratique si on souhaite passer d'un crunch musclé à une grosse distorsion en un clin d'oeil. Il y a également un potard "mid" en plus, ce que je trouve pratique. J'ai essayé un certain nombre de pédales de disto et j'ai été récemment séduit par la REVV G3 qui est vraiment excellente, à la fois avec beaucoup de gain mais très nette. Et bien cette Friedman BE-OD l'est encore plus. La comparaison est sans appel. Elle apporte un son plus british par contre, plus agressif et clair, un peu moins compressé.
La qualité de fabrication a l'air très bonne, les potards réactifs et il existe un trim pot à l'intérieur pour régler le niveau de gain, mais je l'ai laissé à midi pour les deux canaux. Sans doute pratique si l'on souhaite avoir un son plus nettement différent entre les deux canaux.
Certainement la meilleure pédale de disto qu'il m'a été donné d'essayer. La version monocanal standard peut suffire et pour 100 EUR de moins, ça vaut la peine de se poser la question.

DER Amp in a Box schlechthin....
Armand Oberle, 27.09.2020
Ich benütze dieses wundervoll designte Stück Technik mit meinem BOGNER SHIVA Combo (Celestion V30UK) und/oder MARSHALL 1987x mit einer MOJOTONE 2x12 Slant Box (Celestion V30UK) im Clean-Channel und ich kann eigentlich nur jedem Rock-Gitarristen wärmstens empfehlen, sein PEDALBOARD mit diesem wunderschönen und super klingenden Teil zu ergänzen !
Unfassbar organischer Sound beider Kanäle - wobei mir der BLAUE KANAL (Chrunch) besonders gut gefällt ! Bläst man den mit einem TUBESCREAMER noch auf - egal ob mit dem IBANEZ MINI oder dem Besten - dem NU-TUBE, geht sowas von die Post ab und man hat den schönsten 80er Jahre Leadsound ever - schwer in Richtung Gary Moore .... was will man mehr ??
Der GRÜNE oder 2. Kanal des BE-OD DELUXE geht schwer Richtung Highgain eines FRIEDMAN BE-100 (naheliegend ;-) ) und die super 3-Band Klangregelung des Pedals - ja sogar mit Presence, allerdings filligran zu regeln mit Minipots - tut ihr bestes dazu !
Fazit: Wer mit diesem mörder Pedal keinen geilen Rocksound hinkriegt, der sollte definitiv Fussball spielen ! ;-)
