      Friedman "brown eye" overdrive.. I have not heard a pedal sound this amp-like, ever. And not just any amp but a roaring hot rodded Marshall jcm800. Just put it in front of a super clean tube amp and rock out. This is a special pedal.. I would also like to add that the Guitar Center and the crew in Hobart Indiana are awesome at what they do. Thank you guys :)

        Comments about Friedman Brown Eye Overdrive Pedal:

        Great sounding pedal I have many distortion and overdrive pedals and this one is has it dialed in ! It has tons of gain , I turned down the trim pot to 9:30- 10 :00 from the factory setting , and the gain dial is a lot more friendly / usable . If you have a decent amp this will turn it into a beast , it was a perfect match for my 2204 with no effects loop was thinking of modding it (loop and gain mod) now I don't need to ! thanks Friedman it has great dynamics and touch and feel , glassy , sag , etc... well worth it get one you'll be happy you did !

        This pedal sounded so good that I went out and bought a Friedman amp and matching cabinet. This pedal is worth the money if you can't afford the amp.

                Just dont forget to turn down the internal gaun knob. A noise gate pedal quiets it all up.

                    Only had the pedal for 2 days, 1st impression awesome pedal for rock n roll! The gain straight outta the box is a ton, I would say that is the only drawback that it offers too much gain even at lower settings. I have not yet tried to dial it back using the trim pot and find for me that leaving the gain between 9-12 o clock is perfect. I am running it into the clean channel on an older JCM 2000 DSL, not the new ones, and I have to say that the tone coming out of it is amazing, it sounds like a hot rodded ripping Marshall, I have heard demos of the BE 100, never played one and to me they sound similar in tone. I would highly recommend this pedal, I would give 5 stars but because I think it is strictly for hot lead/rhythm rock guitars it is bit limited. I was able to dial in a good tone in about 10 seconds, it is not a pedal you need to fuss with to get good sounds out of, probably on any setting it will sound great.

                      I find this to be a great pedal on its own but in a band situation at least until now it doesn't cut through the mix. I am still tweeting it. I will say this , it has a lot of gain . I had to bring down the gain trim pot that is inside the pedal to be able to cut down on the compression. I love it so far just need to find a sweet spot so it cuts through the mix with a loud bass player and a second guitarist

                        i would sleep with this pedal, and do terrible, terrible, things to its slots, but it would definitely void the amazing 3 year warranty you get with this bad mother. the harmonic structure of the gain is beautiful and it instantly turns any amp into a tone monster.
