  • Great Pedal- Great Company!!!

    As reviewed by Joe Pedoto on 11/26/2013

    I have been using this preamp with my Fender HotRod Deluxe amp and circa 1995 Parker Fly for about four months. It was recommended to me by a staffer at GC. I am extremely happy with the purchase. It is simplicity to use with four knobs (gain, volume and EQ- bass/treble. The gain knob goes from a smooth overdrive to a monsterous hi-gain. The BB adds a rich harmonic content to my sound and the bypass adds no coloration that I can detect. The box itself is tough metal and seems bullet proof. Still, last week I unfortunately slammed on a knob with one of my size 12 shoes and 200+Lb frame and cracked it. Since I like to keep my gear in pristine shape, I went to the Xotic site and put in a written request for a knob. I specified I was willing to pay for the part and postage etc. I received a response from "Tim" at Xotic the same day. He subsequently sent me a complete set of knobs at no charge and sent me a note on how to remove the broken knob. Awesome is all I can say. Couldn't recommend these Xotic products more based on my experience with the pedal and their staff

  • Great pedal for blues and rock

    As reviewed by Benito Antognoli on 2/3/2014

    Have been using a Boss Blues Driver for a while and had been looking for something to add a little more crunch and sustain for bluesy leads. Had checked with a bunch of pedals...had a Big Muff Pi for a while, but found it a little over the top...played others, but nothing stood out. Then one of the great folks at my local Guitar Center suggested the BB Preamp. What a great pedal. A wide, wide range of overdrive/distortion suited especially well to blues and early rock. Exectly what I was looking for. The separate bass and treble controls provide a much wider range of tone that other pedals I had tried (the Fulltone OCD was a runner-up) and the gain goes from a smooth nudge to the Blues Driver tone to an overdrive that lends itself nicely to stuff like ZZ Top, through Allmans, all the way to Hendrix. Seems to be built like a tank, too. Love this pedal. Thanks to Suzanne at Guitar Center...without her recommendation, I would have passed this one by. Get this won't regret it.
