The BBE Process--"What it Is"

Loudspeakers have difficulty working with the electronic signals supplied by an amplifier. These difficulties cause such major phase and amplitude distortion that the sound reproduced by the speaker differs significantly from the sound produced by the original source.
In the past, these problems proved unsolvable and were thus relegated to a position of secondary importance in audio system design. However, phase and amplitude integrity is essential to accurate sound reproduction. Research shows that the information which the listener translates into the recognizable characteristics of a live performance are intimately tied into complex time and amplitude relationships between the fundamental and harmonic components of a given musical note or sound. These relationships define a sound's "sound".
When these complex relationships pass through a speaker, the proper order is lost. The higher frequencies are delayed. A lower frequency may reach the listener's ear first or perhaps simultaneously with that of a higher frequency. In some cases, the fundamental components may be so time-shifted that they reach the listener's ear ahead of some or all of the harmonic components.
This change in the phase and amplitude relationship on the harmonic and fundamental frequencies is technically called "envelope distortion." The listener perceives this loss of sound integrity in the reproduced sound as "muddy" and "smeared." In the extreme, it can become difficult to tell the difference between musical instruments, for example, an oboe and a clarinet.
BBE Sound, Inc. conducted extensive studies of numerous speaker systems over a ten year period. With this knowledge, it became possible to identify the characteristics of an ideal speaker and to distill the corrections necessary to return the fundamental and harmonic frequency structures to their correct order. While there are differences among various speaker designs in the magnitude of their correction, the overall pattern of correction needed is remarkably consistent.
The BBE Process is so unique that 42 patents have been awarded by the U.S. Patent Office.

As Advertised.

Comments about BBE Sonic Stomp Sonic Maximizer Pedal:

It does what most of the reviews have already stated, and that is clear up your tone. a bit. I don't know if it will improve bad tone into great, but I already had a good setup. Gibson guitars into Peavey XXX tube amps. the tricky part of this pedal is it acts a bit like a slight volume boost, which always makes a tube amp sound bigger (more volume more air being pushed), but after playing with volume controls I do believe it helps.

BBE Sonic Stomp

By SamX

from FLA

Comments about BBE Sonic Stomp Sonic Maximizer Pedal:

I am a simple guy. I've even been told that several times. I read about "why" this pedal works and it means nothing to my simple little mind. A friend of mine that worked at a music store told me it was a "must have" so I bought it. Almost everybody describes it the same way---"It's like taking a blanket off your amp!" Well, I have never put a blanket on my amp but I don't see how to put it into any better terms ! It just opens up the sound so much that you'll question if something has been wrong with your amp all this time ! I hate that many stock humbuckers have this muddy quality and this pedal will wash that right off ! You can keep spending money on the latest and greatest amps and pickups or you can insert this into your pedal chain and enjoy life ! Great pedal ! What does it do and how does it do it ? I don't care. How does it sound ? You will be stunned. Playing will be fun, food will taste better, your luck will improve, chicks will dig you ! Look, I admitted I was simple. Give it a try and hear what it can do for you.

GREAT

By Craig

from Oklahoma

Comments about BBE Sonic Stomp Sonic Maximizer Pedal:

If you have a boutique amp and and a high end guitar it won't really do as much for you...but it still will add that slight amount of extra punch that totally makes it worth getting still. If you do have an awesome setup like this just keep the controls low and don't process as much of your signal through it. If you have crap equipment it will make you sound like you don't, hahaha :) Win Win

Loudness Control for your amp

By Bob Clarke

from Goshen, IN

Comments about BBE Sonic Stomp Sonic Maximizer Pedal:

This box does wonders for your tone. It's most like a loudness button on your home stereo, where it subtly increases the bass and treble and focuses the sound for clarity. I set mine at 7 & 7 and leave it on all the time with my Vox AD60VTX. It's like taking the blanket off the amp and making your tone clear, yet "in the mix". My bass player liked it so well, he got one too! Can't imagine playing without it.

Perfect for any guitar rig!

By Joe-vedQP

from Tallahassee, Fl

Comments about BBE Sonic Stomp Sonic Maximizer Pedal:

In my opinion this, by far is the best and cheapest way to help get that "Perfect Tone" you have been searching for. The best way I have heard it described is It is like taking a blanket off of the speakers and to me this statement couldnt be more true. I will tell you that it sounds much better to me at least when run through the Effects Loop of the amp instead of being in the chain of effects petals. You just seem to get more of a response and more control of the over all sound that is coming out of the amp. I have gotten a couple of musicians turned onto this effect petal and even got compliments on my guitar sound from some of the signed artist that we have played shows with. In short all I can say is that this is the easy and cheapest way to add that extra tone to your sound without messing with EQ pedals, I personally will never play without one again.
