Sound: Very good sounding pedal. Cleans up with guitar roll off and gain control down, can serve as an overdrive. Gained up, nice voicing, great note articulation, treble does not get too bright and shrill, bass in thunderous and would be great for detuned guitars. Mid control is like the Uberschall amp presence control, 12:00 boosts mids. Does a scooped mids sound or a cutting mid presence with both ranges being very musically useful and great sounding. Gain level is like an amp, not an over the top metal gain pedal as one might expect. Just a great sounding higher gain with better than most articulation. Feature: Boost adds a volume increase or cut only, not a gain boost as the Red and Blue pedals have. Controls are stiff and smooth have a feel of quality. Nice range of tones. I am sure anyone could dial up a good sound pending your style of playing. Not an extreme metal fizz pedal but more a quality amp sounding pedal, thick, rich, fullrange sound. Ease of Use: Simple, no bad tones here. Quality: Hard to imagine anything having better quality, Bogner uses two sided gold plated boards, relays, high end German and better quality Japanese caps. Value: These new boxes are not cheap but the Uberschall is the less of the three. One expects to pay from $200-300 for a top shelf more boutique pedal these days. Manufacturer Support: no idea The Wow Factor: Impressive pedal, a quality of sound. My wife was impressed by the box it came in, sort of a suede papered covering, embossed Bogner label and note from Reinhold on the bottom with his thumbprint of approval. Different. Overall: Reinhold Bogner's new line of pedals. I needed more of a high gain pedal this time so I thought I would give the new Bogner a shot. That being said this pedal does what it claims, it sounds like the Uberschall amp channel, it has an amp feel and great note articulation, a very nicely voiced dist pedal. Better than a lot of them to be sure but do not expect an over the top gain monster.
