Comments about BBE Crusher Distortion Effect Pedal:
This is one outstanding distortion pedal. Right out of the box it sounds great. The 3 band passive EQ gives great versatility to the stompbox and allows you to tailor the sound to whatever guitar or amp you are using. I have a number of tube amps (Marshall, Bogner, Fender) some of which are sensitive to what pedals they react well with. I have two expensive distortion pedals that sound great on some amps but not others. This pedal sounds great with all of them. I am considering replacing those pricey pedals with this one. One of my amps uses 6V6 power tubes that seem very picky for distortion pedals but this one sounds great through it. BBE made a serious mistake naming this pedal "Crusher" because it gives the impression it's one of those massively over the top metal pedals - and you see some disappointed reviews as a result. Well, this is a distortion pedal, not a metal monster. But, it works great for shred and metal as long as you are not looking for something with enormous gain and thump. For me, this pedal is perfect. I can go from blues to shred with it. I can scoop the middle out or bump it up for solos that cut through the mix. I am also very pleased by how much the character of your guitar comes through even with the gain maxed out. You can hear the real tone of your Strat, LP or whatever, coming through the distortion - a great feature. Running on my clean channel, this pedal sounds as good or better than any OD channel on my Marshall or Bogner. It's like a classic Marshall amp in a stomp box. With true bypass, high grade components, an included ac adapter and great tone, you just can't beat this distortion pedal.
