This overdrive is refreshingly different! It is indistinguishable from an
overdriven vintage Blackface amp. I am so convinced of the sound that I say:
"The best overdrive pedal on the market!"
Perfect for an overdriven rhythm guitar. The tone character of the guitar
remains the same and is always open, airy, extremely harmonious and dynamic. The
drive ranges from barely audible to fat crunch. The Cut pot only trims the top
heights. Ideal to adjust to the used amplifier. The "hair trimmer" inside the
pedal plays a key role. With this it is possible to change the attack and the
character of the overdrive extensively. At a minimum, the response is firm and
unyielding. The further you turn up the control, the smoother the attack gets
and there are additional, extremely harmonic distortions in the treble region.
The feeling of playing makes you forget that you play into a pedal.
A superlative overdrive!
The circuit works very quietly and eats only a minimum current (less than 4 mA).
And like all JCA pedals, there is no loss of heighs when turning back the volume
on the guitar. The dynamic remains. The following videos confirm this
I tried the BOD yesterday. I really don't know what to write here via WhatsApp
... except ... this is the best overdrive I've ever heard ...
The pedal is amazing! It's the allways-on-pedal, transparent, dynamic and
somehow not a pedal, but somehow more airy like a part of the amplifier.
In addition two-dimensional distortions, if you listen carefully, something
crackles behind the scenes and gives exactly this nice breakup.
I have to cope with that now ...
Connected, it's like an old friend who is there and somehow not intrusive, but
who is missing when you turn it off.
Tell me, how do you come up with something like that? I still have to try the
hair trimmer, yesterday was just gasping for air. Indescribable ...You didn't
promise too much.
Thank you again I have to try this out now and enjoy.
