Re: BB Preamp anyone?

I just ordered one myself (last tuesday to be exact)....

Now, if the bastard had shipped it first class (like I had paid for) it would be here

Everything I've heard of that pedal is great (reviews, clips, hearing it in person), but hopefully I can contribute something first-hand within the next day or two...

I have one on loan. I like it. it's a lot like the bd-2, which I have. the bbpre is a little more versitle. but basically a similar pedal.

Re: BB Preamp anyone?

ill be honest, im not very attracted to the stock boss overdrive boxes.. i've owned a few, and I found a lot of them do not have enough volume, as well as the tone factor.. is yours stock or modded

Re: BB Preamp anyone?

Got mine last week. Great pedal. Very transparent, but it gives my lead a very liquidy feel.

Re: BB Preamp anyone?

I have one and a Boogie Lonestar Classic 2X12. It really is a great pedal. I compared many overdrive pedals before ending up with the BB. It effectively makes my two channel amp a four channel amp. With some tweaking, I've also been able to get some nice high gain tones at relatively low volumes aided by the pedal.

Re: BB Preamp anyone?

great, thats what i like to hear.. i really hope that i can find a setting that gives me a nice bluesy crunch on my clean channel, and will push my dirty channel to a higher gain setting, all WITHOUT ***ing up the tone

I got mine yesterday. I've only gotten to play with it for a short time so far, but I like it quite a bit. Without much tweaking I got well within the ballpark of what I'm looking for, so I have no doubts that just a little more quality time with it will yield amazing results.
