Friedman BE-OD Deluxe Dual Overdrive Pedal

Inspired by the Friedman BE-100, the BE-OD Deluxe provides two overdrive channels with separate EQ controls to perfectly dial-in your rhythm and lead tone.
This "BE" dual overdrive pedal captures the tone of the now legendary Friedman BE-100 amplifier, which has graced the stages of world class musicians the world over. The original Friedman BE-OD single channel pedal took the industry by storm. Tens of thousands of pedals sold worldwide and it's still going strong! This updated BE-OD Deluxe pedal employs the exact same circuit but adds another channel and dual midrange controls. The top row (Channel 1) is identical to the original BE-OD pedal while Dave voiced the bottom row (Channel 2) with slightly lower gain. Dual "BE" channels in your arsenal allow you to perfectly set both your rhythm and lead sounds. The BE-OD Deluxe delivers authentic tube amplifier sound with the controls needed to shape your tone. Controls include: 3 position tight switch, volume, gain, bass, middle, treble and presence knobs. These responsive controls will take you from mild overdrives to straight up gain nirvana. Built in the USA and designed to withstand decades of abuse, the BE-OD Deluxe is a must have pedal for any tone enthusiast.

This thing sounds and feels like a amp not a pedal. Both channels have very versatile eq s like a amp. You can put this infront of any decent tube amp with a good speaker and it will sound like a 4000 dollar friedman head . I have played them all and this is the best most natural sounding pedal I have ever played . Tons of usable rich harmony gain. Very musical not stiff or harsh but very fluid and sensitive under your fingers. It breathes like a amp . I love that it's two channels . You can set the amp clean and dial in the two channels on the pedal set for rhythm and lead and have three channels . The tone and feel of this makes you want to play . Its killer . Dave Friedman is a genius .
