Overview

The Ecstasy amplifier was born in 1992, and decades later Bogner is still hand building each amp, one at a time, in Los Angeles, California. The Ecstasy Blue pedal captures the classic Blue-Channel tone of this legendary amplifier, acclaimed for its ability to deliver iconic and classic rock 'n' roll crunch. It's no secret that the Blue Channel cranks out stunning Plexi-like tones, but when the going gets tough it can crush on demand as well.

Reinhold designed the Ecstasy Blue pedal with five discrete Class A gain stages and no op-amps or diode clipping, mirroring the circuitry of the Ecstasy amplifier's Blue channel. This revolutionary approach provides clarity, touch sensitivity and note separation never before achieved in overdrive pedals.

The Ecstasy Blue 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 Ecstasy amplifier's legendary tube design.

FEATURES

  • True bypass
  • Boost function with independently lit volume and gain controls
  • Master Controls: Gain, Treble, Middle, Bass and Volume
  • Variac On/Off switch: adds a "dropped voltage" dynamic compression to the feel and sound
  • Mode Switch: Plexi and Blue modes offer vintage lower-gain or modified higher-gain levels
  • Pre-EQ Switch: B1, N and B2 settings control "openness" and presence of higher range harmonics
  • Structure Switch: 100, 101 and 20th Anniversary settings offer EQ shifts and gain structures from various eras and models of Ecstasy amplifiers
  • Jacks: input, output and remote
  • Remote jack allows control of the on/off and boost functions via a remote switching unit
  • Low Battery Indicator: LEDs blink when battery voltage drops below critical threshold
  • Premium components include: Double-sided, gold-plated circuit boards, German WIMA capacitors, Japanese Nichicon capacitors and gold-plated relays, Carling switches and more

Bogner Ecstasy Blue overdrive pedal

By TODD ROTHENBERGER

from Oklahoma City

Comments about Bogner Ecstasy Blue Overdrive/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

First of all this pedal has what it takes to create all of the classic rock tones you could possibly want. Anywhere from early Rush and Zeppelin to Van Halen. I can't say enough about how good this pedal sounds! It's worth every penny, but the price is my only complaint. When I plugged it into the clean channel of my Peavey JSX I was immediately astonished by how close this thing sounded to the classic tones. I have been through quite a few pedals and this one is it for classic rock. It sounds fantastic through a tube amp haven't tried a SS amp with it but suspect it will sound the same. There are four switches along with the eq knobs. Starting from the right side of the pedal you have structure switch for 100th,101 and 20th that offer an eq and gain structure change. Then you have a Pre-Eq Switch: B1, N and B2 settings control ?openness? and presence of higher range harmonics.And then you have a mode switch for plexi and blue for the plexi is lighter gain than the blue but sound great of course then finally a variac switch which lowers the volume but creates some sag and it sounds just like AC/DC tone. Then of course you have bass treble and midrange with a master and a gain. There are also some small dials for the boost for volume and gain for the boost. This pedal rocks guys and gals! It is a must have on your board especially if you gig. Thank you Mr. Bogner this thing is premo ear candy.

Good Overdrive/Distortion Pedal

By ROSS

from Irvine, CA

Comments about Bogner Ecstasy Blue Overdrive/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

I almost always prefer to get overdrive and distortion from the amp. Having said that, this pedal saves my eardrums, gives me loads of usable colors, and even improves the clean sound when set low. It can get a whole lotta distortion, esp. with the boost on, but I use it at moderate settings for a kind of classic rock sound. I can't say whose guitar sound it resembles, but there's a lot of classic tones there. It doesn't get muddy so easily as a lot of pedals do,in fact it tends toward the bright/clear side, but the tone controls work much better than usual, and all the subtle variations of the voicings sound good. I don't think it cuts the bass as much as a lot of pedals do. The variac simulation is exceptionally good, too, if you like the vintage amp feel. It's really quiet, so it's a good fit with finicky recording engineers. This and the Fulltone OCD are the only two pedals I use. I've been using it with a Gibson Les Paul R8, and a Music man Albert Lee hh. It's pricey, but worth it to me.

    Comments about Bogner Ecstasy Blue Overdrive/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This pedal is worth every penny if you ask me. The EQ on it is very guitar friendly. It is fairly clean, however with the gain all the way up it crunches up nicely. When the boost is engaged its astonishing how amazing it sounds. As I always say you get what you pay for. The extra dip switches help me get a good sound when switching between my Marshal DSL40 and my Hotrod Deluxe. If you are thinking about grabbing one of these get on it before their gone!

      Comments about Bogner Ecstasy Blue Overdrive/Boost Guitar Effects Pedal:

      It's fairly quiet and sounds amazing. The Plexi mode is one of my favs. I prefer running the pedal with the variac on - it's subtle but is a bit looser. The different gain structures are cool but the 3 EQ settings are too similar for my liking. No matter really because the bass, mid, treble EQ is nice with descent range.
