Marshall BB2

Effects pedalThe most innocent of the hot Marshall distortion pedals, but for many people exactly the right one.

Its two modes (Boost and Blues) make it an insiders' tip for many different applications. In boost mode, the signal is amplified without affecting the sound, which is ideal for boosting a tube amp. This way you can tickle out a powerfull lead sound from an amp with good crunch sound.

The Blues mode is based - as the name suggests - on the sound of the old Marshalls, and it does it very well. Whether in front of a clean amp (with less gain) or before an already overdriven amp - the sound will be "marshallized", grounded and tube-like. Those who like the good old sounds (early Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Blackmore, etc.) are the best served by this pedal.

Underrated blues pedal

Hoodoo, 18.07.2018
I don't know why this pedal often gets overlooked, but I enjoy it very much, especially taking into consideration its price.
I use it with a Strat for gigging, as well as recording and practicing.

Pros:
- Very nice sound both for blues and boost settings.
- Can regulate tone for blues drive.
- Can get pretty different sounds. Setting it to just boost with no volume increase will give your guitar a nice spark. Blues with low drive will also give a different result. Blues with high drive and low tone will make it sound fuzzy.
- Seems very durable and has a nice built quality.

Cons:
- Hard to see knob positions. Kind of inconvenient, if you are performing while standing, and want to check out your pedal settings before switching it on.
- Sometimes I try to regulate one knob and accidentally turn the adjacent one as well, and get a surprise when turning it on. The difficult to see knob positions don't really help with preventing that.

All in all, I recommend this pedal for its features and tonal capabilities, as well as build quality and price.

Two pedals in one!!!

Panagiotis Ky., 06.10.2017
Very under-rated pedal with great tones!

Overdrive pedal with two modes!
Blues and Boost.
The Boost mode features a clean boost.
(Will not affect the original tone).
Blues mode sounds like 1960s vintage.
(Eric Clapton - Beano album).

PS: Mid-rangy, not a heavy metal pedal, Good for Marshall sounds.
