Brutal Bogner gain of the highest order, now in a compact pedal.

In 2001 Bogner launched the Uberschall amplifier. More than a decade later, Bogner still hand builds each one in Los Angeles, California. Dubbed "Armageddon in a Box," the ferocious Uberschall pedal derives its thunderous hi-gain tones from the notoriously brutal Bogner Uberschall amplifier. While the Uberschall pedal offers a significant range of classic lower and medium gains, its true nature comes forth when delivering savage, face-melting, high-gain aggression.

Reinhold designed the Uberschall pedal with five discrete Class A gain stages and with diode clipping, mirroring circuitry of the Uberschall amplifier's high-gain channel. This revolutionary approach provides clarity, touch sensitivity and note separation never before achieved in distortion pedals.

The Uberschall pedal is powered by a standard 9V battery or 9V power supply. Reinhold's advanced circuitry internally elevates the voltage a substantially higher level. This higher voltage provides a greater dynamic range which closely resembles the feel of the Uberschall amplifier's legendary tube design.

  • Immaculate.

    This is literally like a Bogner Uberschall amplifier in a box. This isn't just a distortion pedal, it completely redefines your tone. I have owned all sorts of metal distortion pedals, including the PisdiYAUw0t, the line6 ubermetal, boss metalzone, boss metalcore, mxrFullbore, etc...None of them even come close to holding a candle to this pedal. All other pedals simply add massive amounts of gain, completely washing away the tone and making it virtually impossible to cut through the mix with other musicians playing. This is the only modern distortion pedal in which I can hear my tone cut through the mix and never lose sight of every note in a chord. Granted, this pedal does not have massive amounts of sludgy gain, per se, but honestly if you think that you need more gain than this then nobody is going to want to listen to your guitar anyway. This pedal is perfectly sufficient to sound like Meshuggah, Tool, or even Pantera and it is versatile enough to be super responsive to your voulme knob, granting you the ability to access a slightly overdriven sound instead of full on distortion. This is the best and most worthy distortion pedal I've ever played with, unmatched versatility and tonal characteristics makes this pedal way more than just a stompbox, it's like having an extra amp on your pedal board. However, to achieve the best results, I highly recommend stacking this pedal with another overdrive pedal in front of it. I have found no other pedal better than the X0tic RCBooster, it is the best for placing right before distortion pedals as it completely enhances your tone as well as provides a perfect subtle boost, not too much but just right. Oh yeah, and when you squeal the strings with the Uberschall pedal, your ears will bleed.

  • Excellent Distortion pedal

    As reviewed by Scott Baierl on 11/12/2012

    Between the drive channel on my Bogner Shiva amp, and the overdrive pedals I have on my board, I've got a lot of different overdrive options for doing anything from blues to hard rock from the 60's, 70's and 80's. What I lacked was a single pedal that could take my distortion to 11, in order to get that more modern sound. Sure, I could step on different combinations of drive channel and overdrive pedals to get closer, but it's too much hopping around. This pedal fits the bill perfectly. I was concerned that it might sound a bit harsh with that much gain on tap, but it doesn't at all. The distortion is fantastic. and the built-in boost works great to give that extra push for solos. It's got a full tone stack so you can sculpt it to meet your needs. If you want that huge bottom-end, it's there. If you want that scooped mid range, it's there. If you want blistering top end, it's there. This is one of the best pedal decisions I've made. Fantastic pedal!!!

  • Truly Impressed. A must have.

    As reviewed by Jacob Paxton on 12/23/2012

    I got my uberschall pedal a couple of weeks ago and I have been loving it ever since. The clarity and punch is incredible, and that legendary bogner tone is even more than i hoped for. It has the smoothest distortions i've ever played through, but with incredible presence. I have never had tone this good before. The versatility is unmatched by anything i've ever played before. There is so much bounce and flexibility to it. This is one of the best investments i have made for my musical hobby. With this pedal, it has been wildly unnecessary for me to have a massive collection of different overdrive and distortion pedals present on my board (no need for a tubescreamer now). The uberschall does it all very well. I get clean crunches to wall of sound gains with very usable EQ, which makes a sound guy's life much easier. I play through an Egnater Rebel 30 tube head with a Les Paul and a Telecaster. I play a range of music from rock n' roll, alternative indie, and hard rock. This pedal delivers everytime. It is a must have.
