JCA CUSTOM SHOP "BOD DELUXE"

 

The only pedal that reproduces the legendary tone of Ritchie Blackmore in 1972!


Machine Head, Fireball, Made In Japan - The guitar sound of these albums is the benchmark for countless guitarists. A sound sought like the Holy Grail. This search has an end! The double pedal, consisting of the ingenious BOD OVERDRIVE and a modified TREBLE BOOSTER in the style of the RANGE MASTER. When the booster is switched on, the harmonic, airy, open overdrive of the BOD turns into Ritchie Blackmore's trademark sound of the early 70s. Tone, feel and dynamics make you forget that you play a pedal.

 

Customers write:

"The Bod Deluxe has arrived and  working very well.  I plugged my 335 in and the tone is what I am after, sounds great, similar to what I hear from your pedal on YouTube. Maybe at my low volume I need Humbucker's to give me the Ritchie tone?  I will try my Stratocaster again, I'm sure it will get there, very happy with the pedal."

...a few days later:

"I got it, plugged into my Vox AC30, reduced the volumes to produce a cleaner sound, plugged the BOD in and with a little delay it sounds very similar to Mistreated, one of my favourite songs of Deep Purple. Really pleased with the pedal in obtaining this fantastic Ritchie Blackmore tone/sound."

 

 

"Hi Stefan,
I tried my brand new BOD Deluxe today and I'm really, really happy with it. A very pleasant organic distortion that does not hurt the ears but really makes fun to play. My deepest respect! When I opened the pedal and  I saw how few components can create such a first-class sound, I was very impressed. Many manufacturers use tons of parts and it doesn't sound nearly as organic like this pedal. I didn't use the "hair-trimmer-pot" inside yet, but the sound is already superb. I'm very happy that I invested the money. Thanks again for the first class work and best regards."

 

Now Iíve had the BOD Deluxe for about 6 months, and Iíve tested it with my different amps (Fender 68 Custom Deluxe Reverb and Vibrolux Reverb, Liíl Dawg ęTop DawgĽhandwired Bassman). I was looking for a pedal that would give me that early 70s Blackmore sound, Iíve looked and searched for years, now my tonequest is finally over. The BOD Deluxe together with my 1977 Strat and Liíl Dawg amp (and also the Fender amps) totally nails Blackmores Machine Head and his Live from New York sound, but is also very close to Burn and Stormbringer. This is the absolute best pedal Iíve ever had for that particular sound, and Iíve tried them all:) Itís even bettersounding than my Vox AC30/6TB with BSM HS-C Treble Booster, and that is almost the setup Blackmore used during the early 70s. In the future I may order another one.

 

the pedal is there. I tried it out right away - yeah, awesome, I'm really excited :-))) Thank you very much! I wish you a good time and continued success and many ideas for new pedals !

 

wow ... that is unbelievable ... that is really the coolest sound out there ... the booster is awesome ... I have to test it extensively over the weekend. I'm afraid I'll have to sell a couple of pedals now because a Boss Bluesdriver is nothing against this pedal. With the Super Reverb it only sounds great ... because you have reverb ... and the BOD sound is awesome! What I like is that you can switch from clean to crunch and to lead and the tone and character of the guitar doesn't change, just the gain. With one pedal!
