The Friedman BE-OD Deluxe, a premium overdrive pedal from the experts at Friedman Amplification. Building on the success of the original BE-OD, the Deluxe version provides an even wider palette of overdriven tones and greater tonal control in a stylish, stage-ready package. With separate drive circuits for clean and overdriven tones—each with its own 3-band EQ—the BE-OD Deluxe lets guitarists craft two distinct overdrive sounds and toggle between them with the stomp of a footswitch.

Dual Overdrive Channels With Independent Controls

The BE-OD Deluxe features two separate overdrive channels, each with its own Drive, Tone and Level controls. Channel 1 produces a range of medium-gain overdrive tones, from a mellow bluesy breakup to a throaty classic rock crunch. Channel 2 generates higher-gain overdrive tones, spanning chunky hard rock distortion to a saturated lead tone. With independent controls for each channel, guitarists can sculpt two different overdrive voices to suit any musical style or song.

3-Band EQ Provides Tonal Flexibility

Each overdrive channel on the BE-OD Deluxe includes dedicated bass, midrange and treble controls, allowing for precise tonal shaping. The 3-band EQ, combined with the Drive and Level knobs, provides a wide range of overdrive tones—from warm and bassy to aggressive and mid-focused. With the ability to boost or cut each frequency range on both channels, guitarists can craft overdrive tones that complement any guitar and amp setup.

Rugged Design Ready for the Stage

The BE-OD Deluxe features a durable, stage-ready design with premium components throughout. Its rugged aluminum housing contains high quality pots, switches, jacks and circuitry built to withstand the rigors of live performance. Large, textured knobs provide a non-slip grip, even in the heat of a performance, while soft-touch footswitches engage each overdrive channel with an audible click. With superior construction and an eye-catching appearance, the BE-OD Deluxe makes a great addition to any pedalboard.
