Dave Freidman has poured his considerable tone knowledge and amplifier building nous into a line of extremely effective pedals. The BE-OD is a pedal version of his highly successful Brown Eye amplifier and it sounds fantastic.
There are enough control knobs on the BE OD's super-tough chassis to sculpt of range of overdrive sounds. Described as 'British sounding', you can get a light clipping or a really saturated gain form this, with all points in between covered too. Tight and Presence knobs control the reaction of the tone whilst gain, volume, treble and bass dictate more obvious parameters. Each control has a lot of range so you can zero right in on the sound you're after. The tone is very complimentary to pick attack and dynamic and you can select between 9v as 18v to alter the pedal's clean headroom.
The Friedman BE-OD is chock-full of top quality drive tones.
