Xotic BB Preamp

Effects Pedal

The Xotic BB is a booster with enormous gain reserves, ​ideally suited to ​making tube amps with good clean and crunch sounds​ into genuine lead monsters​.

In addition, there is also a distortion option that offers everything from a light overdrive to a singing lead. An active 2-band EQ gives the pedal an enormous tonal versatility, and for those of a more delicate mind, a True Bypass has not been spared.

The ideal pedal.

10.02.2017
The BB Preamp for me personally is a dream. Really responsive, solid, versatile and looks great! I love the sunburnt orange colour.

Sound wise you can can get anything from a volume boost to a tasty heavy distortion. Really responsive to rolling back on the volume knob which is the test for any good drive pedal in my opinion. I usually set it around 10 clock for a light-medium drive sound. I pair it with a tube screamer 808 first, so used together I get a really nice and rich sound. They work very well in conjunction with one another.

Features are straight forward and easy to use. Master volume, gain and then bass and treble for any EQ you may need to do. I found my sweet spot with the treble slightly less than 12 o clock and the bass set flat.

The construction of this thing is flawless. You can feel how solid it is when you hold it in your hand. You would have to really try and break it if you wanted to do any damage. Knobs are really smooth also which is a plus. They won't just swing around if you accidently step on them.

All in all a fantastic buy. Would recommend.
